NCBR provides a temporary sanctuary for boxers in need throughout Northern California, the Central Valley (Fresno or farther north) and around the Nevada/California state line area. We are run entirely by a dedicated group of volunteers and have no paid employees. We allocate nearly 100% of our adoption fees and donations directly toward the care of our boxers, including spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, a microchip, and more.

Max & Neo Donation

We recently received a large donation of collars and leashes for our foster dogs from Max & Neo.


Visit their website at https://www.maxandneo.com/ or their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/maxandneo.

Max & Neo donate one leash or collar to rescues for each one purchased.

Delaney & Murphy

For the second year in a row, Delaney, a Yuba City 8th Grader and aspiring veterinarian, has raised money for NCBR by selling home made holiday toffee! This year Delaney’s efforts helped Murphy (pictured above – photo credit to Lisa Jarvis of Three Lillies Photography) who was recently saved from the Kern County Animal Shelter. Delaney got to meet Murphy at For the Love of Pets Veterinary Hospital and present him with a bed of his own along with a check to cover his vet bills, which included a number of tests and his upcoming neuter surgery.

THANK YOU, DELANEY! You are a very special young lady!

We now accept vehicle donations!

Dogs In Need

These dogs are in very real danger of being euthanized if we are unable to provide them with an appropriate foster home within the time frame allotted by the shelter!
