News & Information


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

NCBR’s Wish List

It takes a lot of supplies to care for the many dogs that come into our program. From collars & leashes to food dishes to crates & bedding and more – we use it all!

Donate any item(s) on our Amazon Wish List and they will be delivered right to us! Look us up by name (NorCal Boxer Resuce) or by email (donate@ncbr.org).

And, if you use smile.amazon.com for the purchase, 0.5% of that gets donated back to NCBR! Double Win! 

Thank you for your continued support!

Introducing NCBR’s New Name A Boxer Program!

Have you seen too many “Rockys,” “Busters,” or “Roxies” on our Available Boxers page? Here’s your chance to change that! Donate $50 or more through our Name A Boxer program, and YOU get to name a future boxer rescued by NCBR! Donate today!

Name A Boxer

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

Please visit our Dogs in Need page (or our Facebook album of dogs in need) to see the current list of dogs awaiting rescue.

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!

Please consider opening your home to a boxer in need by applying to foster TODAY!
