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.

In Memoriam

In memory of Roseanne Robertson, a wonderful woman who loved boxers. Rose and Don are long time supporters of NCBR and have adopted several NCBR boxers, most recently Boo. This is Boo shamelessly begging for cookies at the Dutch Brothers drive-up window, which was one of Rose’s favorite things about him.


Cassie (left) and Kevin are in need of foster homes ASAP! Cassie has completed our board and train program at Tug Dogs and needs a foster home to land in. Kevin needs to move from his current foster home to a new home ASAP.

If you can share your home for a bit, please submit our Foster Home Application at ncbr.org/foster-home-application/. Once we have your application our foster home coordinator will work with you to place the most suitable dog in your home.

Donate to NCBR

Your generosity is what enables us to continue our mission to “Leave No Boxer Behind.”  Regardless of a boxer’s age or potential health issues, they ALL deserve a second chance at a well-lived and well-loved life.

NCBR is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and donations are tax deductible.

We now accept vehicle donations!

Donate your car, boat, RV, motorcycle or farm equipment. We’ll pick it up whenever you want – for FREE! And we’ll get the most value from your donated vehicle. Plus you get a tax deduction!

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!
