This number varies, but on average it is between 175 to 195 a year. We do not turn down a dog needing us but do not take dogs with an unprovoked bite history.
Boxer Rescue Ontario is a registered Ontario charity and we survive totally on donations and adoption fees to vet the dogs in our care as well as training that may be needed for under socialized dogs that enter our program.
Vetting is usually between $10,000 to $14,000 a month and training is anywhere from $200 to $400.00 per session depending on the dogs needs.
Tax receipts are given to those making donations over $25.00
First step is of course filling out an application and note the areas you may be interested in helping with like:
- Home visits in your area
- Phone interviews
- Temperament testing
- Social media
- Walking the dogs that may be waiting for vetting
