Adoption Process - Operations Update - Summer 2023

PLEASE NOTE: Boxer Luv Rescue is an all-volunteer organization – no paid, full-time staff here. That allows us to designate 100% of our funds to the care of Boxers.

Boxer Luv also receives a significant amount of daily inquiries that are managed by volunteers with full-time jobs and families. They are graciously giving of their personal time. Given the significant volume of inquiries, we are unable to respond to each one individually.

Know that we are grateful for your support and your interest in helping one of our Boxers. We will contact you if you appear to be a good fit for one of our Boxers. Thank you for understanding.

Please check SPAM/ Junk email folders for any email notifications that may come to you from or other Boxer Luv related email addresses.

Our areas of operations are limited by available volunteers in the area:

  • We are currently not accepting applications outside of the Phoenix and Tucson (Maricopa, Pinal, and Pima Counties).
  •  We are matching "Available Boxers" to homes/family situations that are a match based on the particular Boxer's needs.
  • NEXT STEP: If you believe your home/family situation is a good match for a listed rescue, please complete the Adoption Application.
  • If you are a previous BLR adopter, email us at

We are so grateful for your interest in a BLR Boxer. Considering all the factors involved in placing our dogs in the right home, we may not be able to accommodate your specific requests, for example "cat-friendly Boxer."

All of our rescued dogs are spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped and have full blood lab workups. Your tax-deductible adoption donation directly supports the Boxers in our rescue.

In general, our $400 adoption fee applies to most of our Boxers/ Boxer mixes however fees may vary depending on the age and medical condition of the Boxer/ Boxer mix you’re interested in.

For example, if there are chronic medical issues that will require ongoing medical care, we may lower the adoption fee. Your donation (adoption fee) only covers a portion of Boxer Luv’s average cost to care for each of our rescued Boxers.

Currently, our cost per Boxer/ Boxer mix is in excess of $1,000.   The balance is covered by individual contributions through fundraising drives and organizational grants.  Your donation to adopt helps us continue to help others in need.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.  We appreciate your support.
