Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: Wigglin Home Boxer Rescue is a non-profit, all-volunteer group of Boxer owners and lovers covering WA, OR and parts of ID and MT. WHBR knows the great need in our community for re-homing Boxers found in unfortunate situations. These dogs come from all walks of life- neglected, homeless, owner surrendered, owner illness/death and military families unable to keep their beloved dogs due to their service to our country. We provide this needed service through donors who believe in our mission, as well as fund-raising events. We work diligently to control the Boxer population through mandatory spaying/neutering of our rescued Boxers. Additionally, we provide education on the Boxer personality and care, over-population in shelters and the many dangers of backyard breeding. Adoptive applicants are carefully screened to assure each Boxer is placed with an appropriate forever family, thus coming full circle and completing our goal.

I have been a volunteer for a year now and honestly have never had as much fun! Those involved with WHBR are a great group of boxer lovers who give in so many ways and have fun doing it. I have met some great friends and extraordinary people. With three boxers already, I did not think they would welcome an intruder, then along came Quinnie who inched her way into their hearts and ours and she added to my volunteer resume when I became a foster mom and then an adoptive mom. WHBR was with us all the way offering support and anything else that was reqired. I will volunteer for them as long as they will let me.

We have had the blessings to experience a hospice Boxer that was found on the streets, a 6 month old puppy that was surrendered by the owner and 10 month old that was hit by a car, badly injured and left at a shelter. All through WHBR! This group has so much heart to take all of the Boxers, no matter what the circumstance. Our hospice passed after 4 months of spoiling in our home that she never would have had without WHBR. The other two have become beloved members of our family. Without the heart, spirit and courage of WHBR, I don't want to think what the outcomes would have been for these fur babies. The leadership of the rescue are always available and lead by example! We are honored to be volunteers and 3 time adopters.

WHBR is nothing but amazing!! The love that each volunteer has for the pups is unreal. They are honest, hard working and genuine people.. not something you find often anymore. I adopted Presley a few months back after thinking I was just going to foster him, he ended up showing us what an adoption looks like by staying with us furever! We love him dearly and would definitely recommend WHBR to anyone looking to add to their family.

Absolutely wonderful experience adopting from Wigglin Home Boxer Rescue. We have been blessed with the perfect Boxer for our family. Everyone from the family interview, home inspection and meet and greet were amazing. The staff at Wigglin Home really looked after us entering this process with 2 kids, including a 2 year old. Although we have dog savvy kids, a kid friendly pup was mandatory. The staff worked closely with our family and matched us perfectly to our adorable June Bug. She's more than what we could've ever expected. Our June has been a part of our family for over 8 months now and the continued support from the adopters and staff is wonderful. Whether we just need to brag or show off pictures to looking for advice from other adopters, it's a great supportive community we belong to. We are forever grateful to Wigglin Home for saving this precious girl's life and for making this perfect match.

We were at a very low point in our lives, we had lost our boxer,Hannah, to DM. We talked and met people from WHBR and they and a dog "Hobbes", helped ease the pain of loosing our Hannah. The members of WHBR are so willing to help and support you. They found us a white boxer, who SAVED US. Casper, our savior, has been with us for 9 months and put happiness back into our lives and the life of our Boston terrier, Ozzy. The people at WHBR are all volunteer and have special hearts. I love this organization so much, I decided I wanted to be a part of this "goodness". I now volunteer. This is an amazing organization in which the people work very hard for a very special cause. I am proud to be a part of it!!

Wigglin Home Boxer Rescue is a very well run nonprofit. Working with them has been a pleasure. They are open, helpful, resourceful and it feels like family all working towards the same goals - saving boxers, rehabilitate them as necessary and finding them excellent homes. Potential fosters and adopters are interviewed to ensure the dog will be safe and well cared for. WHBR works with other rescues with transportation, adoptions and fosters. I am very proud to be a part of this rescue.

I adopted both my girls through Wigglin' Home Boxer Rescue. The first, Lacey, was a very shy little girl who was being sold on Craig's List by unscrupulous backyard breeders. She was too old to have more puppies so they were dumping her...and WHBR saved her. Lacey was so shy the first year she was with me...afraid of everyone but she loved her mama! She is just now learning to trust that (most) people will not hurt her.
My second pup, Riki, was rescued by WHBR from a kill shelter in Palmdale, CA. At 5 years old she is full of energy and thinks EVERYBODY loves her! Nobody can believe that this sweet little pile of wiggles would have been euthanized if WHBR had not saved her.
I also volunteer for the rescue and help where I can. All the volunteers give selflessly of their time and resources to make sure as many Boxers as possible find safe, loving homes.

I adopted my beautiful girl Lacey from Wigglin' Home Boxer Rescue last August. I was so impressed with how devoted their volunteers are to these dogs that I decided to volunteer as well. I'm so happy I did!
This is my girl.

As I learn more and more about the world of Rescue, my role and work with WHBR grows stronger, everyday. I feel that one of our greatest organizational strengths is the love, compassion, and dedication of our volunteers. These strengths are not only reserved for the dogs we help, but are upheld in every interaction with each other and the public. As a board member, I wake up every morning excited to dig into my rescue work. Even when a day can be heartbreaking because of a loss of life, there is still reward in knowing we may have provided that pup with the only kindness and love they’ve ever know.

I've been volunteering with Wigglin Home for just over a year. I have never had a better experience. The support I get from everyone on the team helps me hold onto sanity. The dogs that I've been able to help by providing a soft place to land between surrender or shelter life and a loving home have each taken a piece of my heart. They have also given new enthusiasm to my dogs. If I had to do it over again. I would with each and every pup.

The care that all the volunteers have for these dogs and the community is unparalleled. The dogs that come in are loved instantly and taken care of as one of their own. The family match process is fantastic. Anyone looking for a boxer or in need of finding a home for their boxer will be treated well and can know this team has your family and the dogs interests in heart.

When I found Wigglin Homes Boxer Rescue I knew I was home. I immediately felt a calling to be a volunteer for this organization. The people from the top all the way down are incredible and will go to any length to save a dog. I met with DeAnn and quickly filled out my application to volunteer and adopt because I knew we would never find a place as good as this to invest our time and money. My husband and I were in the foster to adopt program. We are so lucky to have been chosen to adopt Toby to complete our family. He is a beautiful dog who will steal your heart in a second. I wish I could have 10 more like him. I so appreciate that WHBR really takes the time and effort to make sure a dog is going to be the right fit. I will adopt from them again and remain a volunteer as long as they will have me.

I am a Boxer lover, and have been a foster, and failed foster home for several Boxers through several rescue organizations. My experience with Wigglin'Home has been amazing! Not only did they transfer the dog to me with a collar and rescue ID tag, but with a blanket, food and a favored toy! Within 24 hours, my AC (area coordinator) was visiting me and the dog to see how things were going, to provide supplements and vitamins to assist in his recovery and to go over tips that would help with his move. Access to vet care was readily provided, with no question about the concerns I expressed about his health. I am happy to be part of this welcoming and wonderful rescue!

We just adopted this guy, Icee, and our experience was awesome. Everyone was so helpful & kept us in the know as we went through the process. From the foster family to the head of the organization, very encouraging & knowledgeable on the breed & needs of the dog we chose. We will be a long time supporter of this group & will refer others to them. Here is Icee, posing for a picture.

I have been a volunteer with this non-profit for several months now and am thoroughly impressed with the leadership, organization, and genuine compassion exhibited by all levels of this organization. There have been many instances when immediate action was needed in order to save a dog, Boxer or not, and there was no hesitation to act. Transports were arranged quickly, veterinary treatment sought immediately, and foster homes found. This rescue doesn’t hesitate to seek professional help with behavioral/training issues and provides lasting support to the families who adopt through WHBR. I am a proud donor to and volunteer with Wigglin’ Home Boxer Rescue and cannot recommend them highly enough.

As a WHBR volunteer and adopter, the experience of working with this organization has been nothing but inspiring. The dedication and determination shown by DeAnn King president of wigglin’ is emulated in every board member and volunteer. I initially joined as a transporter, to help get dogs where they needed to go. I then started getting involved in events, fundraising, fostering and adopting. I was asked once why I was doing more. I can answer in one word, “FAMILY” that’s how you feel when you’re part of this organization. As a volunteer I have seen 100% transparency and honesty. I've received positive feedback and support in all aspects, from feeding questions to medical to just needing a shoulder. As an adopter that support continues along with a community of adopters to share our stories and photos. I am proud and honored to be a part of Wigglin' Home Boxer Rescue.

I've been involved with this organization less than a year but it has been the most amazing time. I've laughed, cried and rejoiced many times. Helping one Boxer find a loving home or easing their final days is beyond words.
