Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Greater Ohio Boxer Rescue serves all areas of Ohio and the surrounding states of Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a collection of men and women, along with our families, which may or may not include Boxers, who come together as a group to rescue Boxers in need and promote responsible pet ownership. We do this simply because we have a profound love for the best breed. Our rewards are placing animals in need into forever homes only after our volunteers have fostered them in their own homes for at least 7 days. Some stay longer depending on when the foster home feels the animal ready to start its forever life. In addition to love, shelter, and food, our foster families provide additional training and reinforcements for these wonderful animals. GOBR continues to offer support to adoptive families even after our fosters are placed in a permanent home.

Our Adoption Process:

A completed applicaiton to adopt is required for ALL applicants. We process them on a first come, first served basis. Standard information is asked for, such as 2 non-related personal references, a vet reference if one is available, and home visit. If you are a renter we also need landlord info to verify you may keep a Boxer.
Pervious breed experience is a plus, but not required. You must be at least 21 years of age to adopt and be financially able to care for a pet properly (annual checkups-shots and heart worm preventation monthly). An adoption contract is required. If you can no longer care for your adopted pet, it must be surrendered back to the rescue.
Our fee includes spay/neuter, heartworm test, and all age-appropriate vetting. The fee is $275.00.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
