How Long Does the Humane Society Keep Boxers?

by Adopt a Pet, | January 11, 2024


Many pet owners who are thinking about surrendering their pet ask, "how long does the humane society keep boxers?" There is no set time limit, and animal shelters and rescues will do what they can to find a great home for every dog in their care. If, however, the boxer becomes emotionally unwell while in the shelter, they may have to make a difficult decision. Many dogs do not adjust well to a shelter environment, so it’s important to keep that in mind before surrendering your dog.

But I Can’t Keep My Boxer 

If you have exhausted all options for keeping your boxer, look in to other options such as rehoming the dog yourself. The Humane Society does amazing work, but resources are limited. If you can rehome the dog on your own, you leave space at the Humane Society for another dog in need and you ensure that your boxer will have as long as it takes to find the right home. Plus, he won’t endure the trauma of being placed in a shelter.

Help with Rehoming

If you’ve never rehomed a boxer before, you might not know where to start. Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet.com is a great resource where you can find expert advice and valuable tools to aid you in finding a good home for your boxer. 

You’ll be able to:

  • Create a Pet Profile

  • Answer Potential Adopter’s Questions

  • Upload Medical Records

  • Communicate with Potential Adopters

  • And more!

When you choose to rehome your boxer yourself, you not only help your dog but you also help another dog by leaving the space at the Humane Society open for another pet who needs it. 

While rehoming your boxer yourself isn’t as fast or easy as surrendering him to the Humane Society, it does give him the best chance at a positive outcome.
