Cath Hankin has been a long term supporter of the Rescue and has recently taken up running as part of a get fit programme which has seen her drop two dress sizes in the past eight months. Cath wants to share some of that success with us and so has decided to run the St Helens 10k race in aid of Boxer Dog Rescue Northern England.
Please visit our Fundraising page for details and links on sponsoring Cath.
Boxer Dog Rescue Northern England are a rescue organisation dedicated to helping boxers in need. We are an independant rescue and do not operate in association or support of any other rescue organisations in the North of England. Any similarities between this site and others are not intended.
We have a no destruction policy and never put a healthy non-aggressive dog to sleep. All dogs are neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped prior to re-homing. Full assessment is completed whilst the dogs are in our care to ensure that when rehomed they can be matched to the right family.
Many people think boxers in rescue have behavioural problems, but this is not always the case. Most of the dogs offered to us are given up through no fault of their own. Some may have been abused, some may no longer be needed, now that they are too old to breed from. Many are relinquished by loving and caring families but have to be given up because of a change in circumstances.
This website provides information on rescuing a boxer. If you are interested in adopting one of our many dogs who are available for rehoming, please see our Rehoming Procedures before looking at Boxers Needing Homes and Applying To Adopt.
We are run entirely by volunteers who use all of their spare time to help boxers in need. All of our volunteers have been working with boxers and rescue organisations for a number of years. We are always on the lookout for more experienced people to help us with fostering, homechecking, transporting or fundraising. If you are in the North of England and can volunteer please contact us.
The more help we have, the more we can help boxers in need.
