Adopt

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

Foster

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

Donate

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

Volunteer

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.

WE DESPERATELY NEED FOSTER HOMES

Tomlinson’s 2016 Pound4Pound Food Drive is almost here!

Pound4Pound is a proud tradition at Tomlinson’s. Between Nov. 25 and Dec. 24, we invite every customer to donate a bag of food to local rescues like you, and all customer donations are matched by pet food manufacturers—pound for pound.

Last holiday season, we raised a record-setting 125,826 lbs in donated food, which has kept many of your rescue and foster animals fed for much of 2016. We aim to break that record this season, and can only do so with your help.

Learn more at Pound4Pound.

2017 BOXER CALENDARS ARE HERE!
