Adopting a rescued boxer saves lives, and sometimes the life saved isn’t just the dog.


If you can’t adopt, foster – it’s free to you and the job benefits can’t be beat.


If you can’t foster, donate – every dollar goes a long way to help us help them.


If you can’t donate, volunteer – it costs nothing but time and the time spent helping the dogs is priceless.


Mission Statement

Our mission: To balance the health, safety, and welfare needs of canines in the Central Texas area by providing nourishment and a safe environment for unwanted, stray, abused, and impounded Boxers. Once placed in new homes they become more than just pets,
they become family.
