Our mission: To balance the health, safety, and welfare needs of Boxers in the Carolinas (and parts of Virginia) by providing a loving and safe environment for stray, abused, impounded and owner surrendered dogs by placing them in foster homes and ultimately - forever homes. Carolina Boxer Rescue is a volunteer run, 501(c)3 non-profit boxer rescue organization serving both North and South Carolina. We rescue Boxers from shelters, human societes and directly from owners.
Fill out the adoption application. The approval process normally takes around 2 weeks. A home visit will be scheduled after references are checked. All family members are required to be there during the visit. You will not be approved until home visit is complete. You will receive an email from our Adoption Coordinator when approved, which will include your Area Coordinators name. Your Area Coordinator will then contact you and find out more about what you are looking for in your new family member. Once there is a good "match". You will then go onto the dog's adoption list and an introduction to the foster family will be made once you are first on a dog's list. You can then discuss all the particulars about the foster dog. If both parties feel it is a good fit then a meeting can be set up! Please note that they are much longer waits for young healthy dogs and it can take a couple months for you to come up to the tops of lists. If the dog you want to adopt is several hours away we can arrange a transport but we expect our adopters to make the effort to travel at least 1/2 the distance to pick up your dog. We will not transport dogs for an initial meeting. We encourage our foster homes to travel for a meeting but it is not required. Also it is beneficial to meet your dog in surrounding they feel comfortable in so you can see their true personality.
