The responses came fast and furious and Boxers are the Best Breed of Dog God Ever Created did not disappoint. One very exciting Sunday afternoon, with many many members pinned to their computers: Amanda Brangard, Sheila Smith, Nancy McHugh Dickerson, Gail and Mike Dickerson, Michael Whilhelm and Sheryl Sauceman successfully transported Hooch Sauceman from deathrow to Sheryl and The Boxer Transfer Network was born!!!
After that Sunday everyone was elated. Irene decided that the need for aide was overwhelming and reached out to Amanda to make The Boxer Transfer Network official. Irene filed the Maryland Non-profit paperwork in June 2012. The Boxer Transfer Network received 501C3 status in November of 2012. Today, Irene, Amanda, Sheila Smith, Lisa Sergeant, Barb Marucci, Kelly Jaeger, Bunny Link, Sheila Moran, Vicky Lemmens and many other volunteers make up the behind the scenes team at the BTN. Although credit is attributed to each and every person who supports in any way. We work tirelessly to rescue dogs from perilous situations, whatever they may be and we are open to everyone who shares this mindset. The Boxer Transfer Network has flourished. Volunteers have rescued over 60 dogs and placed 52+ into loving homes. We would not exist without the generosity of our members. Volunteers have offered transportation, finances, basic necessities for the animals, countless hours, and some have even opened their homes and businesses to foster a dogs in need. There is no paid salary and no day off, but the rewards are beyond measure. This is a labor of love for all of us. The passion of one has spread to the passion of many and we continue to grow.

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.
