Support ABR by helping wrapping gifts at Barnes & Noble
Holiday fundraisers are an integral part of ABR’s financial health and we need help staffing shifts. We have several options in various locations throughout the Central Texas Area for Gift Wrapping at Barnes & Noble. We kindly ask that you do not sign up for these shifts unless you are already affiliated with Austin Boxer Rescue as a volunteer, adopter, or foster (friends and families of the forementioned may sign up for shifts with that person as long as they are committed to doing the shift). If you would like to get involved with ABR and are not already, please fill out a volunteer or adoption/foster application. We always welcome new people getting involved with ABR!
More information will follow for those who sign up, but the following is a short descriptions of what is involved in being a volunteer for this function:
Giftwrapping at Barnes & Noble: Barnes and Noble will have a table set up with chairs and gift wrapping supplies. Cashiers inform customers that there is gift wrapping available and and that we are collecting donations for our organization. We have a donation box & ABR information on the table and try to educate the customers about ABR while we wrap their purchases.
Below you will find the Austin area Barnes and Noble gift wrapping links for Round Rock, Homestead, Hill Country Galleria, Sunset Valley, and Aboredum! If you have any questions please feel free to contact email@example.com!
Tomlinson's Pet Food Drive
In addition to the generosity of Tomlinson's Feed & Pet customers, 5 pet food companies are signed up to match all customer donations with their own. In 2012, over 72,000 lbs of dog and cat food was collected from their stores and distributed to Central Texas rescue groups.
This years pet food drive event will take place from 11/29 through 12/24. During that time, all customers will be given the opportunity to purchase a bag of food for donation at any of the stores. Customers will be informed of the groups their donation benefits and that the pet food companies are matching all donations. In January, Tomlinson's will take a count of all donation transactions, begin ordering the food from the manufacturers, and start to distribute to the rescue beneficiaries.
Please support this drive that helps support us!!!
DOGS IN NEED
****Please note: no dogs over the age of 6 years can be virtually fostered, they must go directly into foster care.****
PLEASE HELP US!!!!
DOGS FOR ADOPTION
In addition to all our dogs available for adoption we have a Silver Hearts Program. It is designed for those who can provide the special care for boxers which are older and or in need of hospice care. To adopt a dog through the Silver Heart’s program you must complete either the foster or adoption application process. The adoption fee is waved for the adoption of a dog in the Silver Heart’s program. Check out the details here
Special Feature - Glennis
Glennis loves humans, children in particular. Glennis would prefer to be an only pet in her home, and has a high prey drive. Her foster mom describes her as a homebody who also does well in public. Glennis has very nice manners and takes direction well from anyone she views as the leader. She is housebroken and crate-trained and is currently learning to walk on a leash.

A HUGE THANK YOU FOR A SUCCESSFUL 2012!!!
Dear Volunteers, Fosters, Adopters and Supporters,
It always amazes me every year when the numbers come and I can see how many dogs we have saved. This is a direct result of our awesome volunteers, fosters, adopters and supporters that continue to help us grow and save more dogs. This year we have been lucky to work with some amazing rescues and shelters. Thanks to volunteers and employees at these different shelters and rescues that have helped transport dogs to us; Thank You for your efforts and helping make a huge impact on ABR being able to save so many precious lives. Plus, we have some amazing facebook supporters that have pulled together to transport the other dogs that we needed out. We also have the most amazing group of fosters and they continue to inspire me and teach me something everyday. Then there are adopters that keep coming back to adopt again and again instead of buying from a breeder. I would also like to take a minute to thank our financial supporters. These people donate to specific dogs in need, virtual foster, donate goods, supplies, make monthly donations, etc. We could not do this without you. Finally, I would like to say a special thank you to ABR's core volunteers who give their time and energy into help make this organization run on a day to day basis. You guys are the backbone of the group and we could not function without each and every one of you!
I hope you are all as proud to be a part of this organization as I am. Thank you all for your time, energy, donations and continued support!

OTHER WAYS TO SUPPORT US
Want cool Austin Boxer Rescue Gear?
Austin Boxer Rescue is a non-profit organization that branched off from Lone Star Boxer Rescue of Houston. ABR is made up entirely of volunteers who are dedicated to removing dogs from bad situations and placing them into loving permanent homes. We receive dogs from shelters, owners, and dogs found as strays and our volunteers take them into their homes. We do not have a shelter or a facility. Our rescued dogs are rehabilitated medically, socialized and are taught basic manners. We service Austin, San Antonio, Temple, and the surrounding areas.
Thank you for your support !!!
