Founded in 1998 by Trish Spencer, Boxer Luv Rescue (BLR) is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to Boxers and Boxer mixes in need throughout Arizona. We have saved the lives of more than 10,000 rescue dogs since 1998.
Boxer Luv’s goal is to find more ways to build our resources, so all the precious lives of this wonderful breed can be rescued in our area, and live on to enhance the lives of loving families.
The vast majority of dogs in BLR are rehabilitated in foster homes, where they are medically treated, and given time to heal from their physical and emotional wounds before being ready for adoption to qualified families and individuals. All dogs go through a comprehensive medical workup. This includes complete blood work with testing for Valley Fever, Heartworm, Tick Fever, other desert diseases, and more. The rescues are also spayed or neutered and receive all vaccinations before being adopted to a carefully screened, loving "forever" home.
Rescuing animals involves many partners, friends, and supporters. We want to acknowledge and thank the following organizations and businesses for supporting Boxer Luv’s work.
