My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

UPDATE 8/18 Bacon, now Baxter: Baxter has been in an adopted home but was returned. It was not the right fit for him and the adopter made the correct choice. Baxter has been in a board and train situation. He does not have a lot of confidence at this time. He is working on 'going to his place' when people are going to come over. Baxter is doing well and has improved a great deal. He doesn't not make friends with men easily and prefers to just ignore them. He needs a home that will respect that decision. Baxter is a sweet boy to his foster mom and is looking for someone that can just let him be a household companion. 

After visiting with Baxter and talking more with the behaviorist that has been working with him, Baxter is more like a cat in personality than a typical boxer. He prefers to intitiate any kind of close time with his human and tends to tire of too much affection. At that point he will walk away and spend some down time in his crate or on his cot. Baxter is a wonderful dog that just wants to hang around, spend some time with his human, and then go to his quiet place. He will never be a dog that should be around chaos or commotion. No young children as they move to quickly and make too much noise. But if you live a calm and quiet life and will not expect your dog to be close friends with everyone, then Baxter is your guy.

More about this rescue

Rejection Collection Boxer Rescue is a non-profit, 100% volunteer run rescue organization serving the needs of senior boxers and providing special care for medical/behavioral cases. Rejection Collection Boxer Rescue is a 501(c)3 charity, registered with the Internal Revenue Service. Our EIN is 83-4480032. All donations are tax-free in accordance with IRS regulations. MISSION STATEMENT Rejection Collection Boxer Rescue (RCBR) is a non-profit, all volunteer, foster-based organization dedicated to providing loving homes for Boxer dogs – especially seniors, medically challenged, and those needing to start over again in an unfamiliar world. We offer quality care for whatever time is left; it is not about the quantity of days, but rather the amount of love that can be shared during those days. OUR PHILOSOPHY Rejection Collection Boxer Rescue (RCBR) believe all dogs deserve loving, responsible, committed homes. These homes may be adoptive homes, foster homes, or comfort care/hospice homes depending on the needs of the dog. We take considerable care in finding good matches between human and dog. We will educate the families about the responsibilities and costs of bringing a rescued dog into their home and lives. Boxers in our care are spayed or neutered, receive appropriate veterinary care, vaccinations, and treatment for pre-existing conditions. Dogs in the greatest need take priority to the extent our finances allow. In some cases, the need may be for comfort care with minimal medical interference. We are determined to keep administrative expenses in check so that virtually every dollar taken in goes directly to the care of the dogs. Our organization remains committed to the welfare of the dog beyond the adoption process. Education and support will be offered to all foster, adoptive, and comfort care homes. If possible, a special scholarship program for Boxer dogs currently in loving and caring families will be utilized so the family is not forced to surrender their four-legged family member to a rescue. RCBR recognizes that adoption alone is not the solution for overpopulation of pets. The rescue plans to work with other shelters, rescues, vet clinics, and state agencies regarding spay and neuter programs to prevent unwanted pregnancies.
