Thank you. Two small words, jam packed with more love and gratitude than you could ever imagine! Your kindness and generosity today, and every day, is so overwhelming and so appreciated. You may or may not realize that we are small rescue, relative to many other rescues throughout the country, but what we lack in size, we make up for in heart. Our network of adopters, volunteers, and veterinarians is right here in itty bitty New England, and we consider them all part of our family. We are beyond proud of the work we do to find boxers their forever homes.
Rescue is so much more than just matching dogs with a family. It’s about helping people in need. It’s about educating the public. It’s about making decisions that others may or may not agree with. It’s about putting aside feelings of anger or sadness and doing what is best for a boxer in need. It’s sleepless nights. It’s long days. It’s transports, vet visits, evaluations, home visits, and phone interviews. It’s laughter and it’s tears. Rescue never rests.
When we are contacted about a boxer in need, whether it be an owner needing to surrender their pet, or a shelter calling to say they have a boxer who is cowering in the corner of a kennel, we are always ready to help. Many of these dogs come to us, lacking basic medical care such as vaccinations and heartworm medication. Some have not been vetted in a long time and are dealing with underlying health issues. Many are not spayed or neutered. That doesn’t stop us from taking a dog into rescue. We will always do our very best to figure out how to financially care for a boxer that comes to us. This is why your donations are so critical to what we do. Every single donation goes to our boxers. Your generosity allows us to breathe a little easier. For that, we are beyond grateful.
We only do a few fundraisers throughout the year…. The biggest ones being our Virtual 5k, our Calendar, and of course Giving Tuesday. No matter the fundraiser, you always step up to help. Thank you for following our social media pages, and for offering words of encouragement and kindness. Thank you for supporting us in whatever way you are able. And the biggest, bestest, boxerest, THANK YOU for helping us REACH and EXCEED our goal today! We did it!!

Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundresd of milions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. As a 501c3 non-profit organization, we rely solely on the support and donations of people like you.
It is your support and fundraising campaigns like Giving Tuesday that allows us to keep rescuing. The funds raised through donations and fundraising campaigns like this allows us to provide medical care, vaccinations, spays/neuters, and even training, for the boxers in our care. We are committing to raise $10,000 in just 24 hours. These funds will enable us to save more boxers in need and provide ongoing medical care for our “forever fosters,” but we can only reach our goal with your help.
WHERE WILL MY DONATION ON GIVING TUESDAY HAVE AN IMPACT?
Donations support our forever fosters, like Duke.
Sweet Duke, one of our forever fosters.
We received a call about a senior boxer boy, dumped at a local shelter and immediately went to meet
him. He was scared, shutting down, and needed a home. Thankfully, we had an amazing foster willing
to take Duke ASAP. She brought him home, allowed him to decompress, and he became fast friends
with her two dogs.
Your donations helped us cover the cost of Duke’s neuter, 4DX test, microchip, senior blood panel, and a
urine test, which totaled $1,568.00. Since Duke is one of our forever foster dogs, our rescue will cover his medical costs for the
remainder of his life.
On November 10, 2021 Duke met his dad for the very first time. He is in the military and made his way
home just in time for Veterans Day! It was love at first sight. We are so happy that Duke has a family to
call his own and will never feel alone and scared again.
3 Reasons to Give: Our current forever fosters. All of these boxers are in "forever foster" homes, where The Boxer Rescue is responsible for their medical needs. We ensure that they are current on vaccines, heartworm medication, spayed and neutered, and have any other medical concerns addressed. Funds raised today will assist with Molly, Duke and Chi Chi's needs.
It is important that we raise funds so we can help boxers, like Lucy (formally Olive) when Animal Control reaches out to us.
Your generosity allows us to help dogs like Thurston (formally Rocky).
