Special Needs: Cancer


Tyson has started a trial of Prednisone to see if we can shrink the tumor, or at least slow the growth.  He is doing well in his foster home and enjoying all of the attention. 


We wanted to thank all of Tyson's supporters for their generosity.  He received his CT scan and unfortunately, the news is not good.  Tyson has cancer invading his cheek, soft palette, and sinuses.  Due to the extent and rapid growth, it is not treatable.  We are going to keep him comfortable as long as we can and Tyson will receive an over-abundance of love.  Please keep this young boy in your thoughts and prayers. 

10/05/16 -

Tyson was surrendered to rescue because his owner could not provide medical care for the large mass that developed on his face.  AABR volunteers responded quickly and Tyson has just arrived at the University of Penn.  The X-Ray  revealed that it is a solid mass filled with blood.  Tyson will be receiving a CT scan and biopsy tomorrow.  Please consider donating towards his care.  We will post new updates as soon as we learn more.

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.
