Star is doing very well in her foster home.  She gets along great with both other dogs.  Star is curious about the cat, but they are becoming friends.  She is a very happy girl who loves to be around her humans.  Star is also very playful.  If you are interested in adopting this wonderful senior girl, apply today!


Star has now been spayed and she just arrived at her new foster home.  Star is doing wonderful with everyone she has met, including a child, two male dogs, and a cat. She has great manners, sleeps through the night, is completely housebroken, and travels well in the car.  This girl has a wonderful temperament and is going to be a great addition to a lucky family. 

8/31/16 -

Star was abandoned at the shelter by her owner, who left no information about her.  She is estimated to be around 8 years of age.  Star did well with other dogs when evaluated at the shelter.  She just arrived at her temporary foster home this evening and is very happy to get out of the busy shelter.  Star is having a great time running and playing in the yard with her new foster brother.  She has the energy level of a much younger dog.  Star traveled well in the car and knows her basic commands.  She will be spayed next week and then will be arriving at her new foster home.

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.
