- If you live in a state other than Florida please use this link to find a Boxer Rescue near you American Boxer Rescue or Google Boxer Rescue and the name of the state in which you live.
If you are applying to adopt, the following requirements must be met before an adoption can take place:
- All pets that you currently have must be fully vetted. This includes that they be spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and on monthly heartworm preventative. We will contact your vet for verification.
- You must be 21 years of age and living on your own.
- We do not adopt out dogs as gifts or surprises. Absolutely no exceptions.
- If you rent your home, you will be required to provide your landlord’s name, address and phone number. FBR requires landlord approval for all renters.
- Adopting a female if you currently have a female. From our considerable experience in dog placement, we believe that placing a female into a home with a female already in residence, is oftentimes not the best situation and therefore have a standard policy not to do so. If you wish for an exception to be made to this policy, we will evaluate your adoption request, taking all factors -such as age, breed and temperament – into consideration.
