Queenie, Alice, and Rover have been in the shelter since September.  They were part of a cruelty case involving a raid on an Amish puppy mill.  Eighteen dogs and puppies were seized from an unlicensed breeder.  The dogs had been living in filthy conditions and were in bad shape.  The SPCA finally won the case and these three boxers are being released to rescue.  Please keep in mind that these dogs lived in a puppy mill first and then the shelter for five months, so they will definitely need some TLC. 

Queenie is one of the puppy mill moms.  She is estimated to be around 3-4 yrs of age and is very petite.  Queenie is shy, but enjoyed playing with Rover off leash.  She will be arriving this week at her new foster home.

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.
