Hello there human people! My name is Kala, and it sounds like "Kayla." Folks ask me "Why the long face?" And I always say, "Because if I look like this all the time, I get more treats!" ;) You see, friends, that's how smart I am! Then some smart alecks will ask me "Why the long tail?" And I say, "Hey! It makes me special!" Honestly, my tail makes my Boxer wiggles even more special when I wag it! My foster Mum loves to put sweaters and shirts on me, but usually she just ends up laughing because I won't stop wiggling and she can't even get it over my long face! That's how I work my magic on the humans, you see: I wiggle my furry body and I show you how happy you make me, and soon you cannot resist taking me into your home and your heart. 

I love ALL dogs, and I love to box with my foster furbrother! I also have a fursister whom I play with daily!! We play football without the ball, because I haven't quite mastered toys. You see, where I came from (I don't like to talk about it, so the rescue people don't know much), I didn't have any toys. I think I'm going to like them though, if they're anything like these cool peanut butter Nylabones my foster humans give me! You'd think that not having toys would mean that when I do get them I don't share, but that's not true. I share my bones and I don't mind when my foster furbrother eats out of my bowl! I told you I was a good dog. What? I didn't? Well, I'm telling you now. I am a good dog! While I am very petite, I've gained a whole ten pounds since I've been with my foster humans, and I'm really coming into my gorgeous Boxer figure. Let's see....what else can I tell you? Oh! I potty outside! I learned right away that when my fursiblings stand by the back door, my humans open the door to let us go potty outside! I'm also crate trained, but I would so much rather lie next to you, or on a nice soft bed beside yours. My FAVORITE thing to do, is SNUGGLE!! If you to talk softly to me while scratching my head, I fall right to sleep and dream that I am in my furever home, with humans who love me and will never let me go. Are you those humans?

About Houston Boxer Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

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 . 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!
