NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION

Boxer Rescue & Adoption

Boxer Rescue and Adoption rescues Boxer dogs, finding them new, permanent homes with committed owners. Ours is a non-profit organization created solely for the welfare and protection of the Boxer breed.

Who We are

ABOUT US

Boxer Rescue and Adoption is a charitable, non-profit organization, staffed and maintained by volunteers and supported by public donations. We are an organization specializing in the rescue and care of Boxer dogs, but dedicated to the humane treatment of all animals (and humans). We cover the Middle-Atlantic States of Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC.

OUR MISSION

We are dedicated to finding responsible and loving homes for rescued Boxers, so that dog will never again be in need of a new family. Our goal is to educate the public, breeders and fanciers on responsible dog ownership before the dog is abandoned and to inform prospective Boxer owners of the special qualities, characteristics and requirements of our breed before they acquire a Boxer. 

What We Do

Rescuing BOXERS

Identify and provide sanctuary and rehabilitation for homeless, abandoned, abused, inadequately cared for, or unwanted Boxer dogs.

EDUCATE

Educate the public in the proper selection, care, utilization, and breeding of Boxer dogs, and in the humane and responsible treatment of all animals.

Finding BOXERS a Home

Relocate and arrange adoption by qualified, dedicated and caring owners for homeless, abandoned, abused, inadequately cared for, or unwanted Boxer dogs.

AWARENESS

Inform people about puppy mills and backyard breeding situations so they may become better informed if they choose to buy a Boxer puppy.

WHAT DRIVES US

Our philosophy is to protect and serve our breed. We are dedicated to finding responsible and loving homes for rescued Boxers, so that dog will never again be in need of a new family. Our goal is to educate the public, breeders and fanciers on responsible dog ownership, including spaying and neutering of pets, behavioral guidelines to ensure problem behaviors are dealt with before the dog is abandoned and to inform prospective Boxer owners of the special qualities, characteristics and requirements of our breed before they acquire a Boxer. With proper education we hope to eventually eliminate the purebred Boxer from any and all rescue programs.

Adoption Opportunities

 

We would love to have more foster homes. Most people cannot foster, but there are other ways to help. Do mention rescue to those looking for a puppy. Share the knowledge that Rescues can help find homes for unwanted, un cared for, and unloved Boxers.

You can make a tax-deductible donation to Boxer Rescue, to help pay for veterinary and food bills, buy crates and bedding, water buckets, collars and leashes, treats and toys, and all the other things rescues needs.

Adoption Application for Mid-Atlantic Area

VERY IMPORTANT: After returning this application, it is up to you to stay in touch, so I will know that you are still interested in adopting. After six months, old applications are discarded, as there is the presumption you will have gotten a dog elsewhere. If you are still interested in adopting, you will have to let me know that you want to keep your application active.

Old applications are shredded, so that personal information is kept private.

For photos and information about boxers now available for adoption at our Reston, Virginia Rescue (Northern VA), visit our page on Petfinder.org.

Our adoption process includes a visit to your home, so we normally limit applicants to residents of Virginia, Maryland, parts of West Virginia, and Washington, D.C. — within a 2 hour drive of Reston. If you live a bit farther away and still wish to adopt from us, we may be able to arrange for your local shelter or a large-breed rescue near you to do a reciprocal home visit.
