About Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue

Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit Boxer rescue based out of Hickory, North Carolina.  Our current coverage area is throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.  All of our rescued Boxers are in FOSTER HOMES and are not kenneled at a facility.  This way, the dogs receive one on one care, as well as the love attention that only comes from being in a family environment.  We learn their likes, dislikes, and temperament and can address any illnesses or behavior problems quickly.  They live indoors with our own pets, as they are our very own!

We have many wonderful Boxer dogs available for adoption.  An adoption donation fee is required to adopt a rescued Boxer.  This is considered a donation, and will be used to fund another rescued Boxer’s healthcare needs.  Most of our Boxers come from high kill shelters.  Some of our rescue Boxers were picked up as strays by Animal Control.  Some of them have been surrendered by their owners due to divorce, death, financial problems, etc.  If you are interested in adopting from our rescue, please fill out an Adoption Application today.  Blue Ridge Boxer Rescue’s Boxers are adopted to INDOOR HOMES ONLY!  We thoroughly screen applicants and check references.  Please feel free to browse through our available dogs!
