2. The adoption donation for dogs is as follows:
3. We primarily place boxers in the New England states (except ME), NY, NJ, Eastern PA, MD and DE.
If you live in another area please go to The American Boxer Rescue Association to find a rescue organization near you.
4. We suggest you read about the boxer breed from the pages of the American Boxer Club where you can learn more about the history of the boxer breed, the personality of boxers, breed standards, health related problems and much more useful information.
5. You must fill out our Adoption Application completely and submit it to BAR OR contact us toll free by phone at 1-877-598-7751 and we will send you an application if you do not have access to a computer.
If you previously adopted from BAR and would like to adopt another Boxer, we have an Application Update that we would ask you to fill out and submit.
7. You will then be contacted by a representative of BAR to conduct a telephone interview with all adults in the family.
8. The personal and veterinary references provided on your application will be checked by our Reference Checker in your state. In many states including NY, there is a requirement that vets much have a signed release to share their information on your dog with BAR. Some vets will do this if you call them on the phone and asked them to, but SOME will require that you sign an actual release. Please call your vet and ask what their policy is so that your application is not slowed down.
9. You may then be contacted by a BAR representative to schedule a Home Check.
10. Our Directors and the individual foster families will work together to "match" each of our Boxers with the "perfect" family.
Please note that BAR is an all volunteer organization and most of the volunteers have full time jobs outside the home. Consequently, we will respond to your application ASAP and begin the adoption process. However, the process of interviewing, checking references and doing home checks does not happen overnight. Each case is handled individually and therefore, we cannot estimate how long the entire process will take. Be assured that we will give each application our complete attention.
