Who We Are...
Founded in 1998, Boxer Luv Rescue is a 501(c)(3)nonprofit organization run entirely on private donations. We are managed and run by volunteers - more than 300 strong - dedicated individuals working together whose Mission is to give new life to homeless Boxers in need. We welcome Boxers into Boxer Luv from shelters and humane societies; we take in strays, some hit by cars or injured; others wandering the streets, lost or abandoned. We take in dogs from people who can no longer care for their dogs, are in financial or personal crisis, or simply no longer want their pet.
We evaluate each Boxer we take into our care individually, and provide whatever medical care is needed, including all shots and sterilization, and we rehabilitate that dog’s behavior and health in a foster home as needed so we can help him/her find a loving, forever home of its own.
During the past decade, with a list of over 3000 Boxers and Boxer mixes rescued, Boxer Luv has achieved a stellar reputation in the Phoenix tri city area and across Arizona for its responsiveness to Boxers in need. We are on the call lists of the majority of veterinarians, police officers and firemen who contact us when they find a Boxer in need in our community.
We owe our success at saving Boxers to you and people like you, volunteers, adopters and supporters all in love with these wonderful creatures called Boxer dogs. Our volunteers are special people who are doers not complainers. When they hear of a terrible situation with a homeless dog their response is “What can I do to help?” - and then they set about doing it. They are people who love to work with others who share their passion for Boxers. They consider animal welfare an important part of human welfare. They want to end euthanasia of unwanted pets by stopping the senseless over-breeding caused by un-neutered and spayed dogs. Most of all they want to help their favorite breed – a wonderful family pet and clownish companion- the Boxer.
At Boxer Luv, the rewards are many – giving a voice to those who cannot speak; helping the helpless- there’s no feeling as good as that. Just keeping these beautiful, clownish dogs alive and well for families to enjoy and love is a great reward. Plus, the deep and meaningful friendships we find with other volunteers who share our ideals, values and our love of these animals, and who we work shoulder to shoulder with every day, is a wonderful gift the homeless Boxers give back to us.
We invite you to join us in our mission. There are so many things you can do to help, from fostering to taking dogs to events; facilitating intakes, puppy whelping, writing grants, data base work, taking dogs to adoption events and more. Email us and find out more about volunteering. We depend on your support and we thank-you for all you have done and will do in the future for Boxers who desperately need our help.
