Please watch adopting a animal without knowing the full story on their background and also have them tempermant tested before leaving with them... we have heard of several adoptions gone bad through other rescues and want you and your family's safety to come first...( Tis' the season for all of us, watch your pets and adopting pets for Bordatella and dog flu, they both are easily treated, but be informed of what your adopting.)...watch what other rescues are charging for a Boxer, alot are making money off of the animal and are not in it for the love and concern of the breed...(shelters run different than we do, they have financial assitance, so they charge different. Rescues pay for everything for their animals) The average price of a papered Boxer pup should range from $300.00 -$500.00 (remember this pup would have papers) a rescued boxer of any age should not in any way cost that... Our adoption fees are $150.00 and have been that fee for 28 years, we also stand by our Boxers should any problem arise .....for further info give us a call on our training and testing and procedures on adopting a MOONEY'S BOXER....
We are FEMA Certified for Animals in Disaster and Rescue , IAMS schooled 2011,and we recently recieve an award for our efforts for 38 yrs of service and dedication in Rescue,Richfield City award for helping with the animals, and we will continue to help... its our family tradition to continue to help animals and we are grateful we can ...

Not only do we have 2 Boxers, a Healer, a Border Collie, we have 3 cats, a tortoise,a box turtle,Mustang, Appys, Morgan X, Reg. paint Overo, a Reg Quarter Horse and a Mini Horse,we rescue chicks that are unwanted from co-ops and hatcheries after the spring season, we also hatch eggs for baby chicks and ducks for people,and we get in pure breed baby rabbits all the time from shelters and Craigs Listings, we have several that are our personal pets and of course several give birth to litters when they get here from the shelters.... our children have hands on experience with animals and our boxers and horses get the social interaction that they need around humans. We work hard as a family in this Rescue and we all have an active roll in nurturing these dogs... we hope that as you adopt from us that your boxer will be an important member of your family, with lots of fun years ahead and tons of Boxer kisses for you and yours......call the professionals that know this breed ..."MOONEY'S!!!
