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

Luna (formerly ABR Spanx)

We love Luna (ABR Spanx) and all the love she has given us over the past 3.5 years. When we first adopted her, Luna was really skittish and timid with new people and didn’t like a lot of men. We were told she was a stray but I wonder if she escaped a bad situation…
