6 yr old Male Boxer, good with dogs, no cats, no kids under 15, Potty Trained, special needs

Rufus has been with us a while now and is currently working on his socialization issues and working on controlling his energy. This boy has had a rough start to life and we are working on his trust of humans again. Rufus will need a home without a lot of visitors and where his people are home often to give him love and attention. He does well with most of the dogs he has met but should not be in a home with cats as he thinks they are large fluffy squeaky toys. His new home will need to be patient and can and will follow our transitioning instructions completely. He has come so far from the scared and anxious boy we took in and we know he will need a special home to continue to let him grow and be loved. Due to his stresses earlier in his life he has some behavioral issues that require work and patience.

About Rainbow Rescues Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

Rainbow Rescues Inc is a non-profit 501(c)3 rescue based out of Massachusetts. We
are a team of loving volunteers who are attempting to make the world better one pet
adoption at a time. All of our animals are placed in foster homes. We do
not keep any of our animals at a central
location. We are committed to finding the right home for our rescued animals and
educating the public on animal welfare and animal issues.

Rainbow Rescues Inc is a volunteer run agency created to help find homes for
surrendered, abandoned, abused, homeless, unwanted or neglected animals. We
accept all animals except for large livestock, though we will provide referral services for
livestock surrenders. Each animal surrendered to our agency is evaluated for health and
temperament issues, vaccinated, and altered. We charge a small adoption donation for
our animals which helps to cover the medical treatment for the animals and all of the
provisions needed for our foster homes. Please realize that no one affiliated with this
rescue receives any type of compensation except for a lot of good feelings. 100% of the
adoption donations and 100% of all other donations are used strictly for the animals.

Our Adoption Process...

Should you be interested in one of our furry friends the first step is to visit our website and fill out an application. We will review your application, process your application, and contact you for any needed information. Once we have processed your application we will bring you to one of our locations for a meet and greet with your prospective new pet. If you and the pet are a fit we will then bring the pet to your home to conduct a home visit/inspection. If the pet is a fit with your family and lifestyle we will be turning over custody of the pet to you after the review and completion of our Adoption Agreement Document.

Rainbow Rescues Inc asks for a small
donation/fee for pet adoption. Most animals that are surrendered to us require some type of veterinary treatment whether it be shots, spay/neuter, or just an all around check-up. To off set these costs and to provide for future surrenders we must ask for a small adoption donation/fee for our animals.

Adult Dogs-$250 for dogs
Puppies (6 months and under)- $300
Senior Dogs (9 years and older)-$100

All smaller animals will be determined at time of placement.
