Do you have an close friend that you don't get to see often but yet know that no matter what this friend will come to your rescue no matter what? Well, AABR is like that. I am an occasional volunteer and a Boxer lover. I fostered couple of dogs in the past and and have adopted our beautiful Brooke in 2006. AABR is extremely dedicated to make sure that every dog that comes across has excellent care, latest treatment options and best foster parents possible. The amount of support and dedication is truly incredible. I read a review that states that the application became unanswered. Well, it took AABR 4 month to approve us to adopt. I believe it is a good sign. Yes, there are a lot of dogs that are in need of a good home, however there are some many people that do not take adoption of a dog as seriously as they should. You are not getting a toy. You are assuming a responsibility for a feeling, breathing creature that had already suffered from sickness, neglect, heartbreak or all of the above. A+ across the board.

I completed an application and tried to contact them many times with no response ever. They have so many dogs in foster homes for years but won't get back to me.

I love being a volunteer for adopt a boxer rescue!!! I admire the other volunteers who have given selflessly of themselves to give boxers a second chance and the love they deserve. I have also met wonderful people through reference checks, vet checks, home visits, marketing events and transports. I rescued Brody who was found on the side of a road at 4 weeks old and Princess Nona who was dropped off in the dark one night in the yard of a shelter. Se was later adopted and returned because she didn't listen. It turns out that Princess Nona is deaf which is not apparent since Brody serves as her ears. She sticks to him like glue and we have never had a problem with either dog. They both enrich the lives of all who know them and they are amazing with our baby. Please keep up the good work AABR!

Adopt a Boxer Rescue volunteering has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I cant express the feelings when you have been able to assist in being a part of a dog finally being placed in a loving wonderful forever home. Some of these dogs have been abused, not properly cared for and all they want is someone to care for and love them. The people in this group are very caring and expend so much of their time as volunteers to help these poor dogs. I personally am a foster mom, and I assist in reviewing applications and have done home visits. I will for sure be a part of this organization for many years to come and hope that you consider them for one of the Top Rated Non profits because they sure deserve it and they make a difference in a lot of animals and peoples lives!!!!!!!!!
