Houston Boxer Rescue (HBR) was born out of a deep love for the boxer breed and a desire to help end the suffering of boxers due to neglect, abuse, or abandonment. We dedicate ourselves to insuring that the dogs in our program get the second chance they deserve and never find themselves lost, alone, or abused, again.
An must be completed by every prospective family. Why, you ask? Because we consider you pivotal to the successful forever future of a VIB (Very Important Boxer)! You may fill out an online application or if you e-mail us, we will supply a Word document to fill out.
Please be patient with our nosy questions. We understand the application is lengthy however, each question has a reason behind it. A complete application helps us discern the best match for your family! It also demonstrates a level of commitment on your part. Our boxers are not "just dogs" and our adoptive families are not "just people"!
An incomplete application form must be sent back to you. This causes delay and disappointment, two words we would rather not have associated with your HBR experience. Let's work together!
Continue to check the e-mail address from which your application was submitted. When your application is processed, we will attempt to make contact both by e-mail and phone. Keep in mind we are an all volunteer group. Although we have families and jobs that take precedence in our lives, we work hard to save the breed we love! We are committed to doing our best to facilitate the adoption process and make it as pleasant as possible!
When the application is received a volunteer will contact you to schedule a Home Visit. There is a $25.00 Home Visit Fee which is nonrefundable. (Note: If you complete an adoption, the $25.00 will be deducted from the appropriate Adoption Fee listed below) This policy is in effect for reasons we will be glad to discuss at the time of your interview.
Your Home Visit Volunteer will be the point of contact within HBR until an adoption is completed. Once approved, an appointment will be set for you (a Very Important Person), to meet our Very Important Boxers! If you have questions, please ask your Home Visit Volunteer, he or she will be delighted to help!
