Chico Boxer Rescue

Saving Boxers since 1993


July 22, 2015

Currently in California there are literally hundreds of boxers in danger of losing their lives or ending up in homes that are less then adequate. If you are looking for a boxer to complete your family I can guide you to a dog in your area that needs help. Some of these dogs are in shelters in danger of euthansia others are being offered on Craigslist free or for a small fee with the family ignorant of how to screen for a good home. Consequently some of these dogs end up with "backyard breeders" who are care only for the monies they can make from breeding, not vetting or screening animals for behavior or health issues. Others are being offered by families who didn't understand the breed or the responsibility of owning a companion animal.

Thank you,

I am currently working with owners who can keep their companion in the home while I pursue a suitable family to adopt. Home visits will be performed and screening through applications. The dogs will not be under the auspices of Chico Boxer Rescue, but will have the advantage of screening and a written contract between owner and adoptive family. Due to the high numbers of boxers in shelters and on Craigslist it may take some time. The economy had not improved enough to enable many families to take on a new companion. Craiglist has become a very dangerous option for rehoming a dog due to the high numbers of animals ending up in bad homes or used for nefarious purposes, bait dogs, research, etc. I actually don't know how many accounts are true but for those who truly love their companion and find that they must rehome them you would want them to have a happy and safe life. If you are interested in this kind of help or assistance please email or call me and we can discuss the best options for your case.
