Save a Life; Foster a Boxer!!

Hi Friends,

It’s me, Old Man Sam. Have you visited Florida Boxer Rescue’s website lately? If so, you’ve seen an unusual amount of dogs that need a foster home; the big red letters in their bios communicate the urgent need.

Currently, we have SIX Boxer dogs that have been accepted into FBR’s rescue program, but we have nowhere to put them so they must go to a boarding facility. We don’t WANT to do this, but it’s either boarding or the very real possibility of losing their lives.

All shelters are overcrowded and people often wait until the last minute to contact us when they want to give up their Boxer, so this is the best option we have in the short term.

But, GOOD NEWS! You can help change that! By becoming a foster home, you can feel good about saving a dog’s life, each and every time you take a dog into your home. You don’t need to be a stay-at-home mom or have truckloads of extra money to foster a Boxer. FBR will pay for all vet care and will even provide the dog with preventative medicines like heartworm pills. In turn, you will provide a safe, loving, indoor home and good food to eat…maybe even a few toys? Teaching the Boxer basic manners is also helpful as it enhances the dog’s adoptability.

If you would like to learn more about fostering Boxers for Florida Boxer Rescue, please visit this informative page:

Six dogs are currently waiting for a chance to start their new lives and sadly, when they finally reach foster care, there will be new dogs coming in. We can help more Boxers if we have homes to care for them. My mom loves nothing more than to delete those big red letters from a dog’s bio because it means the Boxer entered foster care! Please consider assisting our rescue efforts! You can view the dogs needing foster and adoptive homes by following this link:

Thanks for listening,

~Old Man Sam

    What a great idea! I’m looking for a Boxer and never thought of a Foster program.
    Thanks for getting the word out!

    We have 3 Boxers in our home and I can not imagine giving up any one of them. It’s terrible that any dog has to go to a shelter. I’m glad there are people who have the heart to take care of pets without families. On our website we wrote an article to point out some of the different pet adoption locations to help people realize that you don’t always have to buy a new puppy to have a pet.
