Hello everyone!!! My name is Brock, but you can call me Rocky. Now, you may want to get some tissues out, because what I'm about to say may make you sad. I don't want to make you sad, but I've got to do whatever it takes to find my next furever home. Yes, I said "next" home. 

Friends, sometimes humans realize that they must do what's best for everyone in the family. Being a good human to your four-legged family members sometimes means having to say good-bye. I admit, it will be a bit tough for me to get used to new humans since I've been with my current ones since they rescued me when I was just two years old. They are such wonderful humans though; I have faith they won't let me go to anyone who doesn't live up to their legacy. Okay, enough sad talk! Dry those tears! Let me tell you a bit about me so you realize I'm what's been missing in your life!

I am a cuddly, snuggly guy who likes to burrow into the covers and show you just how much I love you. I've been great with the tiny humans in my current home; I let them crawl all over me because I'm a nice guy like that. I like all dogs my size, but I'm going to be honest with you and tell you that I don't particularly care for smaller dogs or for those sharp clawed weird things that go "meow." They creep me out a little bit, to be honest. All that weird purring and moodiness.....it's just strange. Also, I am so well-behaved that you don't have to crate me when you leave me alone in the house. I will take care of everything and it will be just as you left it when you return. I told you; I'm a nice guy! Anyhow, I must be honest yet again and tell you that I have a bit of anxiety about finding my new furever home. I am a very good boy, but I'm smart enough to know that not many humans want to let an older fella like me into their hearts. Please don't be like everyone else. Consider letting me burrow under your covers and deep into your heart. I can't wait to meet you!

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. We are committed to disclosing any and all information we obtain concerning every dog in our program, to the prospective adopter. You will receive veterinary records, rabies certificate, identification tag, and your very own wonderful new family member!
