About Our Rescue Group:

The Boxer Rescue, Inc. is a newly formed 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving the New England area. Our group is made up of dedicated volunteers. These are the people who care for the homeless, abused and unwanted Boxers because they have a love and passion for the breed and believe they all deserve a second chance. Many of us have volunteered for years with other rescue organizations and through our efforts have learned that there are so many dogs in need in the New England area that we decided the best way to serve our local communities and help these animals, was to start “The Boxer Rescue”. Our main goal is to help boxer dogs in need and to raise awareness among the public concerning rescue.
A Boxer in need of rescue many times, comes to us from shelters, homes where there is no room for them anymore, or from the streets. Some of our Boxers are starved, neglected, abused, and in need of food, medicine, medical treatment, and often times basic training. We do not have a facility to place our dogs, instead, through our volunteers; we findtemporary “foster homes” for the dogs where we learn about each dog's particular needs, personality and temperament. We then interview perspective permanent homes and ultimately match the dogs and homes based on their mutual compatibility. We are constantly looking to improve the work of rescue and our volunteers are a critical part of our success; we would not exist without them.
We are dedicated to finding responsible and loving homes for unwanted Boxers so that they will never again be in need of a new home. Our goal is to educate the public and Boxer lovers in responsible dog ownership, including spaying and neutering of pets, behavioral guidelines to ensure problem behaviors are dealt with before the dog is abandoned and to inform prospective Boxer owners of the special qualities, characteristics and requirements of the breed.
As a non-profit organization we rely solely on the support and donations of people like you. Your support will contribute to the daily care and veterinary services that these dogs require. We thank you for visiting our website and welcome you to browse through. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at info@theboxerrescue.org

Our Adoption Process:

At The Boxer Rescue, Inc., we feel that there is no such thing as being too careful in the adoption process. Our goal is to place every one of our Boxers in a home that is committed to loving and nurturing them during their transition period and for the rest of their lives. All of our dogs are current on all vaccines including Bordatella (for kennel cough) and Rabies. Each has been examined by a veterinarian and those not on heartworm treatment receive monthly heartworm preventative. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. The adoption donation for all of our Boxers is $350.00. The adoption donation for a senior or “silver” boxer is $250.00. To learn more about the adoption and foster "process" and to fill out an application to adopt or foster, please visit our website at http://www.theboxerrescue.org

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.
