Come One Come All!!

Would you like to volunteer for our rescue? We would LOVE to have your help!! High School students, want volunteer hours for those college applications? Scouts & Troops we can use your help too!!!

Here are some ways you can help volunteer...

  • Visit us at our events & participate
  • (Adults) Accompany a dog at an adoption event
  • Escort a Boxer to a training class
  • Help at the next Fundraising Event (set up, raffle, etc)
  • Print flyers and post them at the local dog park & stores
  • Email this website to friends and family
  • Invite friends to join you at our events
  • (Trainers) We would TRULY appreciate someone to work with our dogs! It could mean a new home to them.
  • (Groomers) Even boxers need to be groomed & although we have a shower if you have the ability to groom we would love your help!
  • Hey Scouts & Troops! Our dogs love to wear bandanas that let people know they are looking for a home! If you know any kids that have art skills that could create some, our boxers would jump for joy!
  • ..and more... please email if you can think of something that would help us   with your name,address, phone, email and Boxer/Volunteering experience or desire.
Please complete an adoption application located on our home page! Make sure to let us know you are wanting to foster and not adopt at this time. You WILL be saving a life! Foster Families are what makes our rescue possible. We strongly believe that an animal deserves a better life than sitting in a crate day in and day out while waiting to find a permanent home. By having family interaction in another home they are receiving therapy in action. Foster Families provide the loving home and environment for the animal and if possible food and help with other costs. If a Foster Family is unable to afford the food, etc this will be provided by BOCAR, Inc. We need your help molding these beautiful animals into the perfect pet and just by hosting them you would be starting that process!

Boxer Orange County Animal Rescue, Inc. does not have the ability to rescue every animal, but we do consider Boxers and Boxer Mixes who carry mostly Boxer traits.



Thank you for taking the first step in considering your pet's future welfare.  By placing your dog into our foster program, you will be ensured that your dog will be provided the best care given by one of our selected, pre-screened, volunteer foster families. All dogs must be updated with the vaccinations etc. prior to being surrendered & must have a flea treatment please. Once your dog has been placed into a foster home, he/she will be evaluated, provided medical care (if necessary), and given the utmost love, care and attention it deserves.  Of course, this will be continued into the new home he/she is placed in since we extensively pre-screen all applicants by phone interviews, reference checks, home visits, and post adoption updates. 

When emailing us, please be as detailed and honest as possible to your answers so that it allows us to have the most accurate information concerning your dog's temperament, personality, and level of obedience it has currently.  This information will be essential to us and your dog in many ways.  It will allow the foster family the opportunity to focus on any strengths or weakness your pet currently has, routines/commands your pet is familiar with so adjustment time is much easier, allowing us an idea of any issues your dog is experiencing thus allowing the new foster home the opportunity to take the necessary safety measures within their family, and most important, information that will help the new family adopting your pet so we can provide a successful and happy placement. PLEASE EMAIL THE INFORMATION BELOW - WE NEED TO KNOW AN ANSWER TO ALL INFORMATION BELOW IN ORDER TO ACCEPT YOUR BOXER/BOXER MIX
