The purpose of this coalition is to help people in the Midwest U.S. find a Boxer to adopt and to coordinate the rescue and care of dogs in need.
Boxer rescue organizations throughout Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska work together to rescue and place dogs in loving, permanent homes. All these groups operate as not-for-profit entities, and each has particular requirements for prospective homes.
In general, you can expect to complete an Adoption Application or Interview, meet in your home with a rescue representative, keep your new Boxer as an indoor pet, and donate an adoption fee to the rescue organization. More on what is expected, as well as what you can expect from us, may be found in various sections of this site. Please refer to the links at the bottom of this page or to Our Rescue Groups, Boxer Briefs (FAQ’s) and Helpful Articles for more details about each rescue group within MWBR and about rescue dogs in general.
Please feel free to contact any of the rescue contacts you find here with your questions, concerns and ideas. The rescue contacts would also be happy to help if you would like to learn how to volunteer your time, money or energy to helping Boxer Rescue.
Each group has its own page or link with information on the area it serves, its special needs or requirements, and how you can help that group’s efforts. Please keep in mind, however, that all participating groups share applications, information and resources in trying to help or place dogs.
