CBR is a volunteer run, 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving North and South Carolina. Our Boxers come to us from shelters, humane societies and directly from owners. They enter into volunteer foster homes throughout both states and live indoors with the foster family and other pets. Each Boxer receives a complete physical, immunizations, sterilization, heartworm test and treatment for any illnesses or diseases. We evaluate temperament to ensure that each Boxer we rescue will make a good family pet. These evaluations are achieved through living with the dog and watching him/her interact with children, adults and other pets. All of our Boxers are tested for aggression issues and any other behavior problems. Each dog learns basic house manners and is crate and house trained. We do not accept nor place dogs with known human aggression issues.

~~I am Thelma, (I'm the one wearing the pink harness).   I am a puppy, and I have been a stray for as long as I can remember with my sister Louise. I am at least 6 months old, whatever that means. I was extremely malnourished, if that means HUNGRY all the time, that's me. I was full of worms, so that is why my pooh moves on it's own. Due to the fact that I was so undernourished as a puppy I will remain relatively small. The Vet say's maybe 30 to 35 lbs., maximum. So I am a true pocket boxer, not on my own accord of course. At night after foster Dad shuts off all the lights (except the nightlight) I get very quiet and lay in my cage and make no sounds. If foster Dad or Mom lets me outside I quietly run outside do my business and get my butt back inside. Foster Dad has no idea how many monsters are out there that want to eat small puppy's like me. When I see a large bird flying in the air I head for a place too hide. I have lot's of energy and lot's of love to give. I am putting on the pounds and within a week or two Foster Dad say's I should be able to meet some new people and find a new home. Whatever that means. I know one thing, I love having a warm place to stay and 3 meals a day! Yummmmmm!!!!!!

Please visit Carolina Boxer Rescue for more information on available dogs, adoption policies, CBR events!

Anyone interested in a CBR dog should read our Views and Policies and, if in agreement, fill out and submit an application. During the processing phase, all references will be checked including vet and landlord (if renting). As long as there are no negative references and the application does not contain any information contradictory to our policy, a homevisit will then be scheduled. After the homevisit, the applicant is either approved to adopt, approved with contingencies or denied. At this point, we begin the process of matching your family with one of our boxers. Our standard adoption fee is $250.00. Mixes may be less and puppies may be more.
