Question: Are there currently any puppies available for adoption, and if so what is the
process I would have to go through to adopt a puppy. Also, how much is an
acceptable donation for puppies. thank you, Kevin
Answer: Hi Kevin,
We just had an adorable 11 week old female that we moved today to "no longer accepting applications". Young puppies are available less often, and up on the site for less time than older dogs. They usually go to homes that have filled out applications, and have been through the approval process, long before the puppy arrives at NBR.
To be considered for a dog of any age, I encourage you to follow the adoption procedure at:
I would also suggest that you go to our available dogs page to read the bios on some of our older puppies. They range in age from a few months old, to 12 - 13 yrs old! One of the Boxer's most endearing traits, is that they were bred to retain their "puppy-like" personalities way into their senior years. I have an 8 yr old male who just yesterday was playing with a 4 month old puppy. Charlie wanted to play long after the puppy pooped out...
PS: The adoption fee is $395 for all ages, as we do not value one dog less than another. This fee helps defray the costs of helping all the animals.
There is no maximum for this donation...
Question: How long does the adoption process usually take after the rescue is emailed?
Answer: Boxers and Applicants
are not matched on a first come, first served basis. On average, it takes
between 1 week and 3 months to adopt a Rescue Boxer, depending
on your personal circumstances and flexibility.
Matching Boxers suitable for placement with younger
children, other dogs, cats, and special needs, yours and
theirs, increases the adoption time.
We hope you feel that
the right Boxer is worth waiting for.
Question: Is the fee the same for all dogs, regardless of age? It would seem that an
older dog that you would have for a shorter time would be less. Thanks.
Answer: We look at the adoption fee more as a donation to help us keep going with our mission to help rescue and find good homes for as many dogs as possible. All dogs brought into Northeastern Boxer Rescue are given a thorough veterinary exam, brought
up-to-date on all vaccinations, and all are spayed or neutered if need be.
We don't charge anymore for the dogs that may cost us thousands of dollars in medical bills, than we do for the few dogs that cost us less than the adoption fee. No volunteers are paid, and most food and supplies are donated/provided by the foster families, themselves.
Each dog is just as important as the next to us... no matter how old they are. We hope you feel the same.
Disclaimer: NBR may look at the adoption fee as a donation, however, the
IRS does not.
|Question: We are out of NBR's area. Can you help us
find a Boxer rescue group?
