A Special Thank You
The Boxer Rescue would like to give special recognition and a heartfelt thank you to Patrick McArdle for allowing us to use his photography on our site. Patrick’s Boxer silhouette photography was the inspiration for the feel and design of our website. His passion for the breed is shown through his work. He has captured the true essence of the “Boxer Spirit”.
Patrick is a freelance photographer based in Newcastle upon Tyne. His main interests are architectural and fine art photography, although his extensive international archive extends to documentary, travel and the environment, he has a great passion for the Boxer Breed.

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. Many of us have volunteered for years with other rescue organizations and through our efforts have learned that there are so many dogs in need in the New England area that we decided the best way to serve our local communities and help these animals, was to start “The Boxer Rescue”. Our main goal is to help boxer dogs in need and to raise awareness among the public concerning rescue.
A Boxer in need of rescue many times, comes to us from shelters, homes where there is no room for them anymore, or from the streets. Some of our Boxers are starved, neglected, abused, and in need of food, medicine, medical treatment, and often times basic training. We do not have a facility to place our dogs, instead, through our volunteers; we find temporary “foster homes” for the dogs where we learn about each dog's particular needs, personality and temperament. We then interview perspective permanent homes and ultimately match the dogs and homes based on their mutual compatibility. We are constantly looking to improve the work of rescue and our volunteers are a critical part of our success; we would not exist without them.
We are dedicated to finding responsible and loving homes for unwanted Boxers so that they will never again be in need of a new home. Our goal is to educate the public and Boxer lovers in responsible dog ownership, including spaying and neutering of pets, behavioral guidelines to ensure problem behaviors are dealt with before the dog is abandoned and to inform prospective Boxer owners of the special qualities, characteristics and requirements of the breed.
As a non-profit organization we rely solely on the support and donations of people like you. Your support will contribute to the daily care and veterinary services that these dogs require.
