DOGS IN NEED
DOGS IN NEED
If you want to help dogs that are currently at risk of dying in shelters please consider opening your home and giving a boxer a second chance at life. If you are able to help take a dog into foster care please let us know ASAP as time is running out for these dogs. If you can not foster but want to help then please consider donating towards boarding this is known as "virtually fostering." We are only able to save dogs when we have foster homes and or donations. Click here or on photo to the right see the dogs in need of rescue at shelters.
****Please note: no dogs over the age of 6 years can be virtually fostered, they must go directly into foster care.****
PLEASE HELP US!!!!
DOGS FOR ADOPTION
You can see all of our adoptable dogs on our Adoption Page.
In addition to all our dogs available for adoption we have a Silver Hearts Program. It is designed for those who can provide the special care for boxers which are older and or in need of hospice care. To adopt a dog through the Silver Heart’s program you must complete either the foster or adoption application process. The adoption fee is waved for the adoption of a dog in the Silver Heart’s program. Check out the details here
Special Feature - Glennis
Meet Glennis! Glennis is a strikingly beautiful petite female Boxer with a deep red and white coat. She was rescued from a kill shelter in the Rio Grande Valley, where she had been picked up as a stray. Glennis is currently heartworm positive, but will be treated by ABR.
Glennis loves humans, children in particular. Glennis would prefer to be an only pet in her home, and has a high prey drive. Her foster mom describes her as a homebody who also does well in public. Glennis has very nice manners and takes direction well from anyone she views as the leader. She is housebroken and crate-trained and is currently learning to walk on a leash.

- HunnyB's Soy Candles is partnering with Austin Boxer Rescue in providing special packages for their soy candles. 50% of the proceeds are being donated to ABR. In today’s health-conscious and money-conscious times, many people are choosing to buy soy candles over traditional paraffin wax candles for a variety of reasons:
Soy Candles Burn Cleaner
Soy Candles Burn Stronger and Have a Superior Scent and Throw
Soy Candles are Healthier and Safer for the Environment

Austin Boxer Rescue is a non-profit organization that branched off from Lone Star Boxer Rescue of Houston. ABR is made up entirely of volunteers who are dedicated to removing dogs from bad situations and placing them into loving permanent homes. We receive dogs from shelters, owners, and dogs found as strays and our volunteers take them into their homes. We do not have a shelter or a facility. Our rescued dogs are rehabilitated medically, socialized and are taught basic manners. We service Austin, San Antonio, Temple, and the surrounding areas.
