A non-profit organization of volunteers dedicated to placing homeless boxers in loving homes


Boxer Rescue Ontario is a nonprofit organization of volunteers dedicated to placing abandoned, injured or lost boxers in loving homes. We are an affiliate of Boxer Rescue Canada and work with other rescue groups, shelters, veterinarians, breeders and the public to promote responsible pet ownership in and around Ontario.

The dogs we rescue are usually homeless through no fault of their own. Generally they are surrendered directly by their previous owners or come to us through shelters that are happy for any help they can get. These dogs are given up or dumped for various reasons, though with Boxers those reasons are rarely related to temperament.

Once in our program, the Boxers are placed in foster homes where they are assessed and provided with any needed medical attention. In addition to assessing the dogs, we spend a lot of time and effort scoping potential homes. Each dog is an individual with its own unique needs. We do our best to match it with its new permanent family. To promote responsible pet ownership all rescue dogs are either spayed, neutered.

Like other rescue groups our work relies on the generosity of our volunteers and the public. We ask adopters for a standard donation that helps to mitigate our extensive vet costs, but in the end we rely almost exclusively on fundraising and your donations.

Please check out our success stories to see the results of our work.
