A 501(C)3 Non-Profit Organization Serving New England

The Boxer Rescue

We are a group of volunteers, dedicated to finding loving forever homes for unwanted, abandoned, and surrendered Boxers. Our rescue works within Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New Hampshire. We strive to not only save boxers, but to educate the public about responsible dog ownership, the importance of spaying and neutering, and how to best meet the needs of this amazing breed.

Save a Boxer

Adopting a Boxer

The Boxer Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving the New England area.  Our group is made up of dedicated volunteers. These are the people who care for the homeless, abused and unwanted boxers because they have a love and passion for the breed and believe they all deserve a second chance. 

Make a Donation

The Boxer Rescue could not exist without donations from people like you. Many of our dogs coming into rescue require expensive medical treatment before they can be placed in their “forever” homes. The adoption donation is often not sufficient to cover all of the expenses.   Since The Boxer Rescue is solely operated on a volunteer basis, funding is always tight; therefore, your donation small or large will go a long way in helping our dogs in need. 


Featured Adoptees

Meet Oakley🐾 3-4yrs 🐾 Male


Meet OAKLEY! He's approximately 3-4 years old and looking for his forever home. Oakley prefers to be an only pet and in a home with older kids/teens. We don't know too much about his history, but he has been very friendly with everyone he's met. He is neutered and current on vaccines.  If you are interested in Oakley, please fill out an application

Meet Luna🐾 3yrs 🐾 Female

This is 3 year old Luna!! She is a bundle of fun all packaged up in a sweet boxer body, topped off with one blue eyed bow 
Luna is currently in Puerto Rico where she lives with kiddos and is great with other dogs.
She’s a strong girl, will need someone to help drain some of her boxer energy, and tucker her out. She is deaf, but don’t tell her that. She really doesn’t care one bit. We are looking to place Luna in a home with a fenced in yard, a male canine companion, and kids would be just fine as well. No cats.
Email us at info@theboxerrescue.org if you are interested in Luna.

Meet Emma 🐾 5YR 🐾 Female


Be still our hearts, sweet EMMA! This girl will turn 5 in December and she's just a love muffin of epic proportions. Emma's story is a sad one, and without going into details, let's just say she's suffered some significant trauma in her life. It's her time to shine and she really really deserves to be spoiled rotten. Emma would do best as an only pet and in a home with no kids. She loves going for walks, playing ball, cuddling on the couch, and belly rubs. Did we mention cuddling and belly rubs? If you are interested in Emma, please fill out an application.

Meet Nash 🐾 4yrs 🐾 Male

** Adoption Pending **

This big bundle of wrinkles and flaps is Nash. He is approximately 4 years old and coming to us from Puerto Rico, where he was rescued from a not so great situation. Nash has been very sweet with the humans he’s met, but we do think he should be placed as an only pet. He needs time to adjust to life in a home with a family giving him lots of love. He’s a big boy… a really big boy! Nash walks pretty well on leash and knows how to sit and give paw. We will consider a home with older children/teens. We also think a fenced in yard would be best for this guy.

What We Do

Ways to Help

Adopt A Boxer

We often have many beautiful boxers in need of forever homes. From puppies to seniors, they all deserve their happily ever after. Keep an open mind and an open heart, and you just might find your best friend.


Foster a Boxer

Foster homes are a critical piece of our rescue puzzle and enable us to learn as much as we can about the boxers that come to us before being placed in forever homes.


We are always in need of volunteers. Do as little or as much as you want to help us, help them.


In order to continue to save the lives of beautiful boxers, we need funding help from the public. Please consider making a tax deductible donation in honor of your love for the breed.

Boxer Adoption Notes

Why Two Female Dogs May Not Be the Best Combination

If you find yourself considering this sort of same-sex adoption scenario, think again. As cute and playful same-sex sibling puppies are, chances are that once they mature, they will engage in some serious discussions that could turn bloody.

Is the boxer the right breed for you?

Boxers are forever puppies.  They seem to never to “grow up”. So be prepared to deal with puppy behavior until they are around 3-4 years old.  They require a lot of exercise and stimulation.  Multiple long walks a day will help tire them out, and we all know that a “tired boxer is a good boxer”.
