Our volunteers come from all walks of life, have a variety of skills and interests and can't possibly be described with a single word. They are energetic, resourceful, focused, supportive, helpful, patient, efficient, reliable, committed, effective, enthusiastic, caring, dedicated, insightful, dependable, and most importantly, they have an unmatched love for and desire to help these wonderful, deserving dogs. Without our volunteers, none of the work we do would be possible.
As you can imagine, NCBR is always in need of more volunteers; however, many people believe that the only way to help is to foster a dog or to give money. While we certainly appreciate both of these contributions immensely, there are actually MANY ways you can participate:
~Save A Life. ~
Shelters are constantly overflowing with animals, including many purebred boxers. NCBR can only save those that we have foster homes for, which means there are almost always boxers in danger of being euthanized. Please consider opening your home to a boxer in need by applying to foster TODAY!
~Unable to foster? - No Problem. ~
We have many volunteer opportunities available. NCBR provides training for all of these activities.
Volunteer at adoption events
Perform home visits for prospective adopters/foster homes
Help with or start a fundraiser
Perform shelter evaluations on boxers in need
~Little time to spare, but would still like to help? ~
NCBR is always in need of volunteers who are willing and able to help with transports in all areas of California. These transports generally include picking a dog up from a shelter and transporting him/her to a Foster Home, Volunteer or Veterinary Clinic. NCBR is always in need of transport volunteers able to help transport our boxers to safety.
Please consider adding your name to our transport list.
As you can see, there are volunteer opportunities available for everyone, even if you only have a few hours a week to spare. Many of you who visit our website regularly and are familiar with NCBR know that we are in an almost constant battle with finances; however, without our dedicated volunteers, all the money in the world could not have saved the number of Boxers we have been able to save throughout the years. Our volunteers are truly the lifeblood of NCBR, and we are extremely grateful they are willing to give so much of themselves to help us “Leave No Boxer Behind!”
