OZZIE here and I'm a senior Boxer boy.  I was LOST wandering on a golf course in Houston...for a really long time when these very nice people at the Boxer Rescue sent a very nice lady to pick me up in her car and take me home...and feed me...and give me water...and let me rest.  I have to tell you, it was hard being an older guy like me out there in the heat...with no food or water.  I'm eternally grateful for being rescued.

I have been completely checked out and I'm healthy...I'm just an older, senior guy.  So, I rest a great deal.  I take lots of naps.  I just like to chill.  If you are open to letting an old guy like me live out the rest of my life with you, let me know...I would sure appreciate a permanent home for the rest of my days...

I'm looking for a special person to call my own. I have a ton of love to give and follow my foster Mommy EVERYWHERE. Even though I am older, I still have pep in my step!

I get along with dogs of all sizes, cats--yes, I said CATS! and kids of all ages. I love to hang out and I don't bother anyone or anything!

Thanks for checking me out...your man, OZZIE.

About Houston Boxer Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

OUR MISSION
Houston Boxer Rescue (HBR) was born out of a deep love for the Boxer breed and a desire to help end the suffering of boxers due to neglect, abuse, or abandonment. We dedicate ourselves to insuring that the dogs in our program get the second chance they deserve and never find themselves lost, alone, or abused again.
___________________________________________

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit all volunteer, total foster care (no kennel facility) organization. HBR is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, health, and re-homing of abused, abandoned, neglected, or owner surrendered boxers inside the Houston Metroplex and beyond.

No officer or volunteer within Houston Boxer Rescue is compensated for their services. Rescue is a commitment of the heart, a labor of love. We are serious about changing the lives of boxers that come through our program.

Our goal for the dogs we rescue is a loving and secure forever future in a home that has been vetted by an experienced volunteer. We strive to match the needs and character of a particular animal to the home environment of an approved adopter.

Houston Boxer Rescue depends totally upon donations from like-minded, compassionate people. If you are an individual, a business, or a corporation that believes in our mission, please consider a tax deductible contribution today. Remember to inquire as to whether your work place supports matching donations.

Experience the joy that results from saving the life of a boxer!


Thank You,
Board of Directors: Houston Boxer Rescue

Our Adoption Process...

How the Adoption Process Works

An adoption application must be completed by every prospective family. Why, you ask? Because we consider you pivotal to the successful forever future of a VIB (Very Important Boxer)! You may fill out an online application or if you e-mail us, we will supply a Word document to fill out.

Please be patient with our nosy questions. We understand the application is lengthy however, each question has a reason behind it. A complete application helps us discern the perfect match for your family! It also demonstrates a level of commitment on your part. Our boxers are not "just dogs" and our adoptive families are not "just people"!

An incomplete application form must be sent back to you. This causes delay and disappointment, two words we would rather not have associated with your HBR experience. Let's work together!

Continue to check the e-mail address from which your application was submitted. When your application is processed, we will attempt to make contact both by e-mail and phone. Keep in mind we are an all volunteer group. Although we have families and jobs that take precedence in our lives, we work hard to save the breed we love! We are committed to doing our best to facilitate the adoption process and make it as pleasant as possible!

When the application is received a volunteer will contact you to schedule a Home Visit. There is a $25.00 Home Visit donation which is nonrefundable and considered a charitable donation for tax purposes. (Note: If you complete an adoption, the $25.00 will be deducted from the appropriate Adoption Donation listed below) This policy is in effect for reasons we will be glad to discuss with you when we meet.

The Home Visit Volunteer will be your point of contact within HBR until such time you are assigned another volunteer (due to scheduling or geographical reasons), or your adoption is completed. Pending approval, an appointment will be set for you, (a Very Important Person), to meet our Very Important Boxers!

Once you have had the Home Visit please do not confuse us by submitting questions via info@houstonboxerrescue.org . This too will delay the adoption process. Your Home Visit Volunteer will be more than happy to assist you!

Each HBR dog will be fully vetted, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and if necessary treated for heartworms prior to adoption.

You will receive veterinary records, rabies certificate, identification tag, and your very own wonderful new family member!
