Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: 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.

Programs: 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. Provided medical care for the sick and injured boxers that came in. 11 dogs required major orthopedic surgery. The organization treated 21 dogs with cardiac issues, which required extensive cardiac work-ups. The organization began to rescue senior boxer dogs and provide them with foster homes. Finally, the organization worked with volunteers to provide behavioral intervention for dogs with behavioral issues and had a volunteer behavioral coordinator the coordinated with professional services, in-home visits, and foster home follow up.

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.
