My story

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

UPDATE 8/20 FROM FOSTER: I am Lucy’s current foster and she is a total sweetheart! She loves to snuggle and hang out, she has been around older kids (10yr + at my house) and does very well. She wanders the fenced yard if I do yard work or watches out the front window if I am working inside. She likes walks and is quickly picking up new skills. Loves car rides - calmly observes the world as it goes by. Completely potty trained. Hangs out in my office when I am gone. Her bed is her place in my office. Lucy lived with a senior male boxer when she first came to rescue and was best friends with him (Jaxon). Since Jaxon's passing, Lucy can be dog selective.

_____________________________________________
RCBR is very excited to introduce Lucy, a senior female boxer from TX. Lucy was emaciated and very sick from poor care when she first was brought to the TX shelter. RCBR was contacted for help and we jumped at the chance to help this sweet old girl. And Lucy has been nothing but grateful and loving to her temp foster family in TX. She is slowly gaining weight. Once we have her here in MN she will get the much needed vet visit to see what else she has going on with her health condition.

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.
