I just got this email. This is a wonderful rescue. We got our Boxer there, and they do wonderful things.
Please read.
Dear Boxer Luvers,
Over the past 35 days, Boxer Luv has taken in 55 dogs, or almost two a day. In the same 35 day timeframe, the rescue has also adopted out 28 dogs which is an AMAZING statistic. It shows how incredibly dedicated the foster and adoption teams are at getting rescued Boxers in to forever homes. But as great as that news is, the rescue is struggling to keep up financially with the amount of Boxers being given up and abandoned.
Anymore it is rare that the rescue takes in a totally healthy Boxer that can be adopted out quickly. Most of the Boxers we've rescued in recent months have had at least one medical issue to be addressed, some minor and some more severe and greater in number. We work very hard at making financial decisions that best serve keeping the rescue afloat and that means we do have to turn Boxers away at times which is a painful decision to have to make. But if the rescue is to be here tomorrow to serve the valley, we have to survive today.
20% of the dogs that came in were turned in by their owner. Last year's economy hit rescues hard and this year is worse with people not only losing homes but jobs as well. The impact on the animals is significant. Any rescue you talk to can tell you how strapped they are for funds.
Obviously it's a financially trying time for everyone. We are asking that if you are in a situation to make any donation at all, please do. Even $5 would help toward caring for the Boxers. As you know, we are 100% volunteer run so all donations go directly toward caring for the Boxers as they await their forever home. Please consider making a donation if you can. The Boxers need you. You can donate online using PayPal by going to our website at or mail it directly to us at:
Boxer Luv Rescue PO Box 47777 Phoenix, AZ 85068-7777 As always, on behalf of the Boxers we thank you!!!!
