The organization's primary exempt purpose is to provide a sanctuary for dogs of the boxer breed (full and partial-bred) in need, and to educate the public on the importance of spay and neuter, and of proper pet care.
Worked directly with animal shelters to rescue boxers that either have been abandoned or impounded as strays and provided permanent homes for the rescued boxers through placement and adoption in suitable, loving homes.

Reviews for Norcal Boxer Rescue
NorCal Boxer Rescue is an all volunteer Boxer rescue group that operates in Northern California and in Texes. They have created a network of volunteers that are spread out throughout the region using foster homes. They locate, assess adoptability and rescue Boxers from shelters, especially from rural facilities with high kill rates; as well as providing a resource for current Boxer owners who can no longer provide a home for their pet. NCBR provides medical care (including spay and neuter), microchipping, temperment testing, basic training and continued support and advise to clients who adopt. Volunteers transport dogs between medical facilitlies, provide care and foster them until they find their forever loving homes. Almost all of the their donations pays for medical care.
NCBR makes a lifetime commitment to each Boxer rescued. I have developed a love for the breed and started as a financial donor to the organization. NCBR's commitment to their mission and their integrity as a volunteer run organization has also motivated me to become a volunteer foster family and surely somday a client.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
As a donor, I feel my financial support goes directly to the care and welfare of the dogs. As a volunteer, I am amazed at the widespread dedication of the volunteer group as a whole, and how hard so many work to save as many dogs as possible. When my family has the space for another 4 legged member, I hope to become a forever home for a NCBR dog, as well as continue to foster.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
The only change I would suggest is to find larger, more consistent donations or sponsorships (which is not an easy task, especially for an all volunteer group). NCBR has a stable financial record, but there are times when they are in dire need of additional funds to cover high medical costs.
