Adoption Policy

Our adoption process is listed below. We only place within the state of Arizona.

Step 1: Online Application (link sent by adoption counselor)

Once you complete and submit your application it is reviewed by our adoption team and qualified applicants will be contacted to set up a phone interview.

Step 2: Phone Interview

If the application meets the initial requirements, then one of our Adoption Counselors will go through your application with you over the phone to ensure there are no errors and to clarify any points as necessary.

Step 3: Home Visit(s)

After the Phone Interview, one of our volunteers will contact you to set up a Home Visit at a suitable time when all members of your household can be present.

Step 4: You Will Be Notified Of Our Decision

Shortly after the Home Visit, you will be notified about our decision.

Step 5: You Will Be Matched With A Dog

Successful applicants are matched with a dog. Our primary goal is to place each dog in the best situation possible. This can take days or weeks and is difficult to predict. We encourage you to stay in contact with our representatives since we get new dogs in all the time.

Step 6: You Add A New Member To Your Family

Once we find your match we will make arrangements for you meet the dog. If it’s a good fit for your family and a good fit for the dog, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract and for an adoption donation to help cover our veterinary costs. We will also provide you with our trainer’s information. We strongly encourage each and every adoptive family to go through a training program with your entire family and new boxer. Training will give everyone the knowledge and confidence needed to make this adoption both fun and successful! After you adopt we will follow up with you during the initial adjustment period and we are always available to answer questions and provide help when possible.

Step 7: You Become A Success Story!!!

We wish you and your rescue boxer all the best. Remember you are now part of the Boxer Luv Rescue family. Always feel free to ask us questions and send pictures. We love to hear how our babies are doing!!!
