Our Mission

The mission of Second Chance Boxer Rescue (SCBR) is to rescue, rehab, and re-home dogs throughout Florida, (specifically boxers) that would be, otherwise euthanized.


“Second Chance” is not a second chance for dogs, because that would presume they had a first chance and failed. The name of our rescue refers to giving humans a second chance to provide a safe, healthy, and loving home and environment for our dogs.  


 As we visit county shelters we meet so many wonderful dogs that need homes and have no one to help them.  How heartbreaking it is to see a dog with a death sentence, but the dog is the wrong breed so we must pass it by knowing what the probably outcome will be.


Being human, we could only take so much of this heartache, so we started a division of Second Chance Boxer Rescue to rescue, rehab and re-home dogs who are not boxers, but need help just the same.  We named this division Second Chance Friends.
