News & Information

Strut Your Mutt 2020 Was an INCREDIBLE Success!

Strut Your Mutt ended in October, and we were blown away by your support!  We raised just over $97,000, not only setting a new fundraising record for NCBR, but also becoming the top team out of all of the participating organizations in the country.  The funds we raised will be used to provide much-needed medical care and behavioral intervention for the dogs we love so much.

Our success this year demonstrated what we already observe each day in rescue: that it requires a team of people all willing to pitch in to make a difference.  Even without an in-person event this year, a record 162 people registered to be on our Strut Your Mutt team, and we received nearly 900 individual donations.

In addition to the hundreds of individuals who gave to our Strut Your Mutt team, many businesses offered their support through in-kind donations that fueled our team challenges.  Thank you to Barkbox, The Blissful Dog, Burnin’ Love Art StudioEarthbath, Earth Rated, Great Shots Photography, Max and Neo, Naughty Boy Vineyards, Pet Photos By Olin, Santa Clara County Parks, Stark Naked Creative, and Sweater Hound for your support!

THANK YOU to each of you who paid it forward this year by contributing in some way to this fundraiser.  We are proud to have such dedicated and compassionate people on our team.

Introducing Eusoh – an Insurance Alternative

Eusoh is a revolutionary, affordable, subscription-based alternative to veterinary insurance.  Subscribers become group members who share veterinary costs with each other.  As a member, you make an initial $48 deposit and pay a $17/month subscription fee.  80% of veterinary costs are reimbursed to group members, with funds drawn evenly from all members’ $48 deposit.  At the end of each month, you pay as much as is needed to restore your balance to $48.  This means that, at most, you will pay $65 per month ($17 deposit plus $48 balance) to remain a member.  However, your contribution will vary by month and may be as low as $17.

Subscribe now, and enter the code “NCBR!”  NorCal Boxer Rescue will receive $40 for each referral!

Grey Muzzle Thank You!

We are so honored to be a Grey Muzzle Organization grantee again this year! Thanks to Grey Muzzle’s support, the next 10 senior boxers who are adopted will come with up to $1000 of post-adoption support, which will be reimbursed to adopters for any veterinary need that arises within the first year of adoption.  We know that many of you have a soft spot for frosted faces, but that the cost of caring for a senior boxer has given you pause when it comes to adopting one.  We hope that this support will give you the security you need to give your heart away to a beautiful older soul.   Thank you, Grey Muzzle, for trusting in us and for supporting our efforts!  We are grateful for your partnership!

Thank you, Hoven Foundation.

Each dog who enters our lives is a gift.  They bring us untold joy and share with us their unconditional love.  They teach us to be better people.  For nearly 10 years, The Hoven Foundation has not only appreciated the gift that each dog represents, but they have given back generously.  The continued support of the Hoven Foundation has meant the difference between life and death for countless beautiful souls.  Thank you to the Hoven Foundation for what you give to our dogs and, in turn, to all those whose lives those dogs touch.

Thank you, Pet Food Express!

Thank you Pet Food Express for your generous donations to our pantry for our foster dogs. This is just a very small example of how much this company has helped our organization. As you can see, the pups also enjoy getting to join in on supply pick up days.

We are very excited to announce that this year we are one of 62 animal welfare groups chosen from 240 applicants to receive a grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization to help senior dogs!

Our grant will fund the production of several interactive kiosks that will be placed in veterinary waiting rooms and provide information about our Wizened Wiggle Butts Program!  Our hope is that these kiosks will expand our foster home capacity for senior boxers and help educate pet owners about caring for senior dogs.
“This grant will help us serve more senior dogs Bunny – providing her the veterinary care and behavioral intervention she needs so she’ll be ready to go to her forever home,” says Karen Heald, our Executive Director. “No one is more grateful or loving than an old dog, and we’re looking forward to helping more senior dogs like Bunny get the second chance they all deserve.”

In the past 11 years, the national nonprofit Grey Muzzle Organization has provided almost $2 million in grants to support its vision of “a world where no old dog dies alone and afraid.”  “Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we’re delighted to help deserving organizations like NorCal Boxer Rescue make a difference in the lives of dogs and people in their communities,” Grey Muzzle’s Executive Director Lisa Lunghofer says. “Many senior dogs in Northern California are enjoying their golden years in loving homes thanks to the wonderful work of NorCal Boxer Rescue.”

Thank you, Grey Muzzle, for helping us continue to save our wonderful Wizened Wiggle Butts!
