Patchy had surgery to remove two mast cell tumors and mammary masses, which were benign.  Her surgery costs were around $2500.  She will be going soon for her heartworm treatment.  Patchy is a wonderful boxer with so much to give to a forever home.  Please help us make her healthy and get her ready for adoption by donating towards her medical bills.  Every donation will help make a difference for Patchy!


Patchy is settling in well at her foster home.  She is recovering from pneumonia and gaining some much needed weight.  This beautiful girl is wonderful with other dogs and also cats!  If you are interested in adopting Patchy, apply today!

Patchy was brought to the shelter because her family abandoned her.  She is estimated to be around 5 years of age.  Patchy is heartworm positive and underweight.  She also has a mass at the top of her left leg.  Patchy is reported to be good with other dogs and she also passed her cat test at the shelter.  The shelter believes she is deaf.  Patchy will be transported to New York shortly and will need a foster home to provide her with some TLC.  Please apply to foster Patchy today!

If you are interested in adopting this dog, please first read our Adoption Procedure, by clicking on the link at the top of this page, then fill out an online application.

Boxers and Applicants are not matched on a first come, first served basis. Not all applications are approved. On average, it takes between a week and 3 months to adopt a Rescue Boxer to an approved applicant, depending on your personal circumstances and flexibility.  

Not every home is the right match for a boxer, and matching Boxers suitable for placement with younger children, other dogs, cats, and special needs, yours and theirs, increases the application review time and adoption time. 

And yes, we realize that the Boxer you may have your heart set on, may be adopted before you're approved.   Should your first choices all ready found their forever home, we want you to advise us at your home visit of other dogs you are interested...  Or let us suggest a few that we feel will match your home.  That is what we are good at.   And be happy for the ones that have been placed... and know that there are way too many fantastic dogs waiting in their place.

Our non-profit organization is wholly comprised of hard-working volunteers whose only reward is seeing our wonderful Boxers placed in loving, permanent homes and given another chance for a happy life. Our process may seem slow, but if you are patient, we will try to provide you with a devoted, loving companion - a Boxer.

We hope you feel that the right Boxer is worth waiting for.
