News & Information


Lace up your shoes! For the 4th year, NCBR is participating in Best Friends Animal Society’s Strut Your Mutt event. This fun day of dog-themed festivities will take place at Little Marina Green in San Francisco on Sept. 29, and registration is open NOW at http://support.bestfriends.org/goto/NCBR_2018.
Strut Your Mutt 2018

What is the Strut Your Mutt?

In addition to being a day of dog-themed fun, Strut Your Mutt culminates a period of peer-to-peer fundraising. Last year you raised over $36,000 for NCBR’s boxers at this event and helped us become the top fundraising team in San Francisco. Can we do it again? Not without you!

Who should register?

Everyone! Even if you can’t attend the event, aren’t sure of your availability, or don’t have a dog-friendly dog to strut with, you should still register!

Why should I register?

Registration is only $15. This fee is tax-deductible, goes directly back to NCBR as a donation, gets you a t-shirt if you attend the event, and makes our team more competitive for fundraising incentives! Additionally, thanks to some generous donors, our team will have its own fundraising challenges! **To start, five of the first people to register between now and 5 pm PST on 6/25 will be chosen at random to receive a year’s subscription to Bark Magazine! And the first 35 people to register and raise two additional donations of any amount will win a 6′ Max and Neo leash!  
But most importantly, your registration helps NCBR continue the work we do each year.

Grey Muzzle Organization Grant Recipient

NorCal Boxer Rescue is one of 66 animal welfare groups in 30 states chosen from more than 300 applicants to receive a grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization to help senior dogs.

“This grant will help us recruit more foster homes for senior dogs like Gordon. He recently entered our care after being abandoned in his home for over two weeks before he was taken in by animal control,” said Karen Heald, executive director of NorCal Boxer Rescue. “No one is more grateful or loving than an old dog, and we’re looking forward to helping more senior dogs get the second chance they all deserve.”

The national nonprofit The Grey Muzzle Organization improves the lives of at-risk senior dogs by providing funding and resources to animal shelters, rescue organizations, sanctuaries, and other nonprofit groups nationwide.


We are ALWAYS in need of new foster homes.
These are just some of the MANY boxers that end up in shelters across Northern California waiting to be rescued. We can save them all, but only with YOUR help! We need YOU to be a FOSTER HOME, to be the bridge between the shelter and their fur-ever homes! Apply to foster today!

They’re not asking for forever…just for right now!

Foster Homes Needed
