Kitty is doing great and gaining more confidence with each day.  She will now take food and treats from your hand.  Kitty had her first real walk the other day.  Her foster mom said as soon as she pulled the harness out the next day, Kitty knew exactly what was coming and was excited to go.  She is making an amazing transformation and learning to enjoy life in a home. 


Former mill girl, Kitty, is making progress each week in her new foster home.  Although she loves playing and laying down with her foster boxer brothers, a majority if time is spent with the two young children in the house - she is a mother at heart!  Kitty needs a fenced yard.  She spends hours at a time outside laying in the grass in a spot she has made her own.  Kitty doesn't even care if she is alone as long as she is outdoors.  She now eats dinner with the other dogs and is starting to trust new people much more quickly.  Kitty has that great boxer wiggle when you call her name and she loves to give kisses.  Kitty needs a home that can continue to work with her.  She is still a little skittish when people pass her and it will take some time for her to fully adjust.  Kitty is going to make somebody very happy!

Kitty was recently surrendered from a puppy mill.  The volunteer that transported her to our vet's office indicated that she is a total love bug!  Once she relaxed, Kitty was all wiggles and kisses.  Kitty will be spayed and brought up to date on all vet care.  She will then be arriving at her new foster home.  Apply today to adopt Kitty!

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.
