8/05/16 - MEMORIAL

Jenny had her appointment with the neurologist today and the news was not good.  They agree that a brain tumor was causing Jenny's seizures.  She has deteriorated rapidly in the last few days and her foster family made the very difficult decision to let her go.  Thank you to Thomas and Patrick for giving Jenny a great week and sending her off with love.  Thank you to Nancy for giving her a beautiful name.  And thank you to all of her supporters for caring about Jenny as much as we did. 

7/29/16 -

This adorable senior boxer came into the Philadelphia shelter as a stray, so there is no history about her.  Based on her condition, Jenny has led a rough life.  She is covered in pressure sores and has some wounds around her neck.  Jenny is limping on her front leg.  She also has a mammary mass that will need removed.  The volunteer that met Jenny indicated her nub never stopped wagging.  She did great with her evaluations with other dogs.  Jenny just arrived at her new foster home in New York.  We will update her page once her foster family learns more about her.  Please consider helping with Jenny's medical expenses.  We want to thank Nancy, who placed the winning bid of $250 to give Jenny her name.

Message for Give a Dog A Name:

My sweet, beloved Jenny would have been honored to have this new senior girl named after her.  Seniors are special!

If you are interested in adopting this dog, please first read our Adoption Procedure, by clicking on the link at the top of this page, then fill out an online application.

Boxers and Applicants are not matched on a first come, first served basis. Not all applications are approved. On average, it takes between a week and 3 months to adopt a Rescue Boxer to an approved applicant, depending on your personal circumstances and flexibility.  

Not every home is the right match for a boxer, and matching Boxers suitable for placement with younger children, other dogs, cats, and special needs, yours and theirs, increases the application review time and adoption time. 

And yes, we realize that the Boxer you may have your heart set on, may be adopted before you're approved.   Should your first choices all ready found their forever home, we want you to advise us at your home visit of other dogs you are interested...  Or let us suggest a few that we feel will match your home.  That is what we are good at.   And be happy for the ones that have been placed... and know that there are way too many fantastic dogs waiting in their place.

Our non-profit organization is wholly comprised of hard-working volunteers whose only reward is seeing our wonderful Boxers placed in loving, permanent homes and given another chance for a happy life. Our process may seem slow, but if you are patient, we will try to provide you with a devoted, loving companion - a Boxer.

We hope you feel that the right Boxer is worth waiting for.
