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 rescue boxers from shelters and from owners who are no longer able to care for them. While we aim to save every boxer in need, we prioritize the most vulnerable dogs, including those who are old, ill, injured, or housed at the shelters where the risk of euthanasia is the greatest. At a minimum, we provide each of our rescued animals with veterinary care, spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, a microchip, a temporary foster home at a private residence, lots of love, and placement into a carefully screened forever home.
NCBR is run entirely by a dedicated group of volunteers who have an unmatched love for preserving this wonderful breed. We have no paid employees and allocate nearly 100% of our adoption fees and donations directly toward the care of our boxers.
