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, Maine, 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. 

Meet Legend 🐾 3yrs 🐾 Male

**PENDING ADOPTION**

The man, the myth, the LEGEND!! Meet the very handsome, the very smiley, the very kissable, Legend. He’s approximately 3 years old and looking for a home. Legend would be ok with another dog and kids 10+. Not too long ago, he was nothing but skin and bones! Now he’s a supermodel!
Legend will likely need help with housebreaking, crate training, and leash walking, but he’s ready to tackle all the tasks!
OTHER DOGS? Female ok
CATS? No
KIDS? 10+

Meet Lucky 🐾 5 YRS 🐾 Male

Meet Lucky!!! This bundle of all things sweet, is 5 years old and looking for a forever home. Lucky is in foster in Puerto Rico and is loving the resident dogs and doing well with their kiddos. He’ll be neutered shortly and will also have the little rash on his muzzle checked. He’s up to date on all his vaccines and has his doggie bags packed, ready to head here just in time for spring!! No sweaters required!
OTHER DOGS? Female ok
CATS? No
KIDS? 6 +

Meet Sawyer 🐾 6-7yrs 🐾 Male

We were able to get some new photos of Sawyer, the gentle soul who was left behind in filth and squalor. He’s still wearing a sad face, but he perks up when he’s outside and getting loved on. This boy holds no grudges and deserves all the best that life has to offer. Sawyer is estimated to be around 6-7 years old, so he’s pretty much all that rocks about boxers, minus the spaz part. Look at his face... LOOK AT IT!!! Don’t you want to be the one to turn his whole world around?
He is good with other dogs, so we will consider a chill female for him. Please apply if you’d like to be Sawyer’s hero.
Remember, he will likely need to brush up on his housebreaking and need help with leash walking, but he’s soooooo ready to be the sunshiniest part of someone’s family!
CATS? No
DOGS? Sweet female considered
KIDS? 8-10+

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.

Volunteer

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

Donate

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”.
