Austin Boxer Rescue, located in Austin, Texas, is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization that branched off from Lone Star Boxer Rescue in Houston, Texas and was founded in 2005.
ABR is made up entirely of volunteers who are dedicated to rescuing our beloved Boxers and placing them into loving, permanent homes. Our volunteers are primarily in three chapters which allows for greater responsiveness and availability of foster homes:
- San Antonio
We receive dogs from shelters from around Texas as well as owner surrenders. ABR works closely with shelters to maintain a good relationship which improves a boxer’s chance at being rescued. Once in rescue, dogs are rehabilitated medically, socialized and are taught basic manners. While ABR serves Austin, San Antonio, Temple, we work closely with other rescue groups around the state to ensure statewide coverage.
