There are many reasons to want a boxer in your home. They’re super adorable, they have a great personality, they’re high-energy, they’re child-friendly and they’re very protective of the people they love. If you’ve been thinking about Northwest boxer rescue and you’re ready to take the steps, here are two options you should consider!
Northwest Boxer Rescue
Northwest Boxer Rescue wants to find a happy, loving home for every single one of their boxers. They work with committed volunteers and local vets to rescue boxers every single year and they provide temporary care while they look for forever homes.
If you want to give one of their boxers that loving, happy forever home, the first step in the process is to fill out their adoption application. It will take a few weeks for the application to be processed and reviewed. Once you’re approved, you’ll be contacted and when they find a boxer that’s a great fit for you and your family, they will call you.
After this, a meeting will be arranged where the entire family will be able to meet the dog and if everything goes well, paperwork will be finalized and your boxer will come home that same day.
