Boxer Rescue is a nonprofit organization founded in 2005. Our parent organization, Boxer Rescue LA, was founded out of love and fierce determination by Ursula Sauthier in 1977.
Today, Boxers and Buddies provides a safe, humane sanctuary for abandoned Boxers who are waiting to be adopted.
What We Do
B&B is funded solely by private donation. Our entire organization is run by a dedicated team of volunteers. Our group works for the love of the breed and to see dogs find homes.
Our available dogs come from local shelters, from the streets or from owners who turn them in. We are always filled to capacity with scared, confused and very stressed out dogs. They are with us because B&B is their last hope of finding a new life. We are their temporary haven until they are adopted into a loving permanent home.
Before they can be adopted, each dog is evaluated for temperament, must be sterilized, microchipped and their shots are updated. B&B has a training program for those dogs who need rehabilitation or have behaviors which need to be modified.
B&B stands apart from other rescues by rescuing any Boxer,
regardless of age or health. We feel that they are all worthy of a real chance at life. This policy means that we are subject to frequent and expensive veterinarian costs. Medical expenses are only one of the major cost B&B has to pay each year. The cost are endless: food, mortgage, utilities, insurance, shelter fee, and the costs go on and on. Saving lives is not cheap but someone has to do it!
How We Work
It takes over $250,000 each year to keep B&B open.
We are constantly seeking funds and support. We need your help.
We depend on our donors and our volunteers to keep B&B open to any Boxer in need. We appreciate your compassion by including a
rescue Boxer into your life. Please spread the word and continue to
support our efforts.

How to Adopt
Boxers and Buddies carefully screens each potential home to find the right family for each of our Boxers and Buddies. All dogs have different personality, traits and needs, so we carefully screen to make sure that the home they go to will be a good match and has a high potential as a permanent home for the dog.
Step 1: Find a dog you're interested in. Visit us at adoptions on Sundays at the North Reno Petco. We are at Petco for adoptions every other sunday. For exact dates, please visit our website at http://www.boxersandbuddies.com/Events.htm Browse
This preliminary application gives us basic information regarding you, your family and your home, so we can help match you to the right dog.
Step 3: Wait to hear back from a volunteer. Remember - all of our staff are volunteers. We do our best to review your application with you within 48 hours, however, there are occasional emergencies, set-backs and other obsticles in our way. Please be patient - we WILL contact you
Step 4: Meet the dog. If your application matches the dog you're interested in, we will set up a time for you to come meet your potential new family member.
Step 5: Homecheck: We want to make sure our dogs are entering an enviornment that is safe and secure, and that all members of the family are ready and eager for this new responsibility. We also want to make sure the dog you have chosen gets along well with your current family members - both human and other pets.
Step 6: Congratulations! You have a new family member and have given a wonderful dog a forever home!
