The volunteers and adopters do an awesome job, but it seems that the "leadership" of PA Boxers has outgrown the service of rescuing boxers and are only interested in the profitability. The more fees collected by placing dogs without doing the homevisit or checking on the suitability of the dog to the new family just leads to more damaged boxers..so after several successful rescues from PA Boxer, I must withdraw my support and my donations

Our family adopted a dog from PA Boxer. She was instantly part of our family. The kids couldn't have been happier. It is wonderful to show our kids to give a dog a home. Especially since our Maggie is a senior. Thank you PA Boxers.

I adopted a boxer from this organization a few years ago. He is one of the best dogs I have ever owned. When I am ready for my next boxer I will be contacting this organization.

I adopted a Shih Tzu from PA Boxer on Saturday, 10/8/2016. I am writing this on 10/18/2016. The dog was described as timid. This was an understatement, but I was willing to give the dog a home. The dog was described as 2 years old and surrendered by the family. My vet estimates the dog at a minimum of 4 years old. If surrendered by the family, why did they not know the dog's name? The name Molly was given her by one of the children in the foster family. Additionally, the rabies certificate states an age of 3 weeks on 9/26/2016 Really?.

The day of adoption I was promised the vaccination certificate would be sent and it was not sent until I made repeated requests for the certificate and the rabies tag. I just received a PDF copy of the certificate by email today. I am still waiting for the rabies tag.

The dog was loaded with fleas when my wife and I picked her up. When we got her home, we took her straight to the bathtub and gave her a flea bath. Good thing!!! We then washed everything the dog had come into contact on the Sanitary cycle.

I have contacted the vet directly to get the straight information and they are sending me a rabies certificate, tag, and receipt for services as I am suspicious of whether they performed all of the vaccinations and flea & tick treatments they claim on a data sheet they provided about Molly on one of their forms. They provided no documentation from the vet.

I am not saying all adoption experiences with PA Boxers Rescue will be handled in this fashion, but I am saying be skeptical and careful. Know good questions to ask before you adopt, and ask them. Find a respected reputable adoption organization.

"Randy64" who gave PA Boxer a full five star review is the President of the organization. If I could give this organization 0 stars I would. Very unprofessional, very rude.

PA Boxer Rescue Is A Very Unethical Rescue. One Of Their Board Of Directors/ Trasure Christine McClain Was Charged With A Felony Of Drug Charges & Was Jailed For Several Years For This. Her & Her Live In Boyfriend Randy Martin Run This Organization. These Two Individuals Are In Control Of All The Monies That Come Into This Organization With No Oversight From Anybody Else.
As You Can See Christine McClain Gave A 5 Star Rating To This Organization.
They Did Not Disclose Their Amount Of Monies On This Site Why Because They Use This Rescue To Pad Their Own Pockets.
It Is So Sad That People Like This Use Life's Of Innocent Dog's To Their Own Financial Gain.
