News & Information

This month we are Marching for Boxers!

Every time you walk, jog, or bike (with or without a dog) and use the free mobile app, ResQwalk, in support of NCBR, you help our dogs because NCBR will receive a donation from Best Friends proportional to the number of miles our followers log!

But that’s not all! To help motivate you we’re giving away two NCBR t-shirts! At the end of the month, the app user who logs the most miles in March will get one, and we’ll hold a random drawing of all app users who log at least 5 miles during the month to select the user who will receive the other. Want a free t-shirt? Start Marching today!

Download the Android app or iPhone app now!

We’ve also put together instructions on how to follow and support NCBR within the app to ensure your miles count for us.

Maddie's FundNorCal Boxer Rescue is a proud recipient of funding from Maddie’s Fund®, helping to achieve a no-kill nation #ThanksToMaddie.


Grey Muzzle Organization Grant Recipient

NorCal Boxer Rescue is one of 66 animal welfare groups in 30 states chosen from more than 300 applicants to receive a grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization to help senior dogs.

“This grant will help us recruit more foster homes for senior dogs like Gordon. He recently entered our care after being abandoned in his home for over two weeks before he was taken in by animal control,” said Karen Heald, executive director of NorCal Boxer Rescue. “No one is more grateful or loving than an old dog, and we’re looking forward to helping more senior dogs get the second chance they all deserve.”

The national nonprofit The Grey Muzzle Organization improves the lives of at-risk senior dogs by providing funding and resources to animal shelters, rescue organizations, sanctuaries, and other nonprofit groups nationwide.

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!
