Ways to Help

How to Volunteer:

Do you feel helpless by the sad stories you read about these dogs? You don't have to feel that way any longer. Austin Boxer Rescue is seeking volunteers in the Austin and surrounding areas of Central Texas. You can play a big part or a little part, but every small task you can do could be lifesaving for another dog.

If you would like to volunteer please fill out a Volunteer Form

Please email  volunteers@austinboxerrescue.com if you have more questions about how you can help.

The volunteer opportunities available are as follows:

    1. Fostering a dog until it can be placed into a permanent home

    2. Transporting dogs from shelters or to and from vet appointments

    3. Helping set up and working adoption days

    4. Participating in fundraising activities or hosting a fundraising event 

    5. Doing home visits on potential adopters

Become a Foster:

Austin Boxer Rescue can only help dogs if people are willing to provide temporary fosters until permanent placement can be found. Fostering a dog is one of the most important things a volunteer can do and it can be life- saving for many of our furry friends. It is a great way to familiarize yourself with the breed and provide a displaced animal a home when they need it most.

If you are interested in fostering, please fill out an  Online Foster Application

You don't have to be an expert on the breed, all you have to do and WANT is to make a difference!

Donate Money:

All of the money donated to Austin Boxer Rescue goes directly to a boxer in need. The money is primarily used for medical expenses. An unaltered dog with heartworms can cost Austin Boxer Rescue upwards of $300, just for basic medical care. If a dog has multiple medical conditions, the cost of vetting can become overwhelming and expensive.

Please consider sponsoring a boxer in need.

Donations can be mailed to:
Austin Boxer Rescue
PO Box 14421 - Austin, Texas 78761

If you would like to make a donation to a specific dog, please write the name of the dog in the memo line.
