One of the most common dog’s breeds, which you will find inside county animal shelters, is the Boxer. These very beautiful and pure breed dogs are often given up because their owners simply can’t handle their large size. Sadly many of these dogs are put down each and every year, because there is not enough room for them in the shelter.
Animal shelters around the country have high kill rates, because they receive so many dogs without the room to keep them. It takes times to find the right person to adopt these dogs, but for some there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Special organizations, known as Boxer Rescue groups, are starting to pop up around the country. These groups are 100% no kill shelters and only take on as many dogs as the have room for. These groups often rescue many dogs from local animal kill shelters and help reduce their population without causing death. Some of these animals live for many years in these no kill shelters, before finding a family to call their own.
These groups are non-profits and are run with the money they receive from donations and adoption fees. So if you are looking to add a new dog to your family, why not consider getting one from a Boxer Rescue. These full blooded dogs can make really great companions and will be very thankful to have a family to call their very own. While all dogs are thankful to have a home, the pooches that come from these groups, seem to have a special love for their owners. So if you are looking for loyalty, you might want to start here.
You get piece of mind when adopting a dog from one of these groups, because you know you will be helping save a life. Instead of going to a breeder, which will add to the population problem, why not find a local rescue group near you?
If you simply can’t find a group in your area, don’t worry because many of these non-profits will work with you. While you might have the added expense of shipping, it’s a great way to get the dog of your dreams. This is actually a very convenient way to get your new pet, because they will often deliver them to your doorstep. Utilizing pet delivery companies, for a small fee you can have your pooch shipped around the country to your location.
