​We use to process our donations because they don't charge us service fees. They do charge a small credit/debit card transaction fee, but you are able to pay that instead of us if you wish, meaning BDRNE gets 100% of your donation!

About Us

Boxer Dog Rescue Northern England is a registered charity (1153127) and rescue organisation run by a committee of 8 volunteers who are dedicated to helping boxers in need. We have a network of volunteer supporters who help with fostering, transporting, homechecking and fundraising and we are always keen to widen this network, so if you are in the North of England and can volunteer, please contact us.

​We never put a healthy, non-aggressive dog to sleep.  All dogs are microchipped and neutered prior to re-homing (unless a medical condition prevents the surgery). A full assessment is completed beforehand and whilst the dogs are in our care to ensure that they can be matched to the right home. We are an independent rescue and do not operate in association with any other boxer rescue organisation.

BDRNE patron with boxer

Peter has been a boxer owner for many years and his late boxer boy, Alf, was the centre of his and wife Lin's home throughout his life.

We are delighted to introduce TV's 'Yorkshire Vet' Peter Wright BVSc, MRCVS as patron of Boxer Dog Rescue Northern England.

Peter is a down-to-earth, dedicated and hard working vet. He qualified in 1981 and has worked in Yorkshire, ever since.

In his early career he worked with - and was mentored by - Alf Wight, AKA James Herriot, creator of the popular books and TV series 'All Creatures Great And Small'.

The BDRNE team are thrilled to have Peter on board and we look forward to working together to ensure BDRNE can continue rescuing boxers in need.

Celebrity Mastermind

In 2015 top celebrity chef and BDRNE supporter, Tom Kerridge, took part in BBC's Celebrity Mastermind to raise funds for the rescue. 


Not only did he take part in the competition, he in fact won! - much to the delight of the BDRNE committee who were there to cheer him on and watch the filming of the episode at the BBC studios in Salford, Manchester.

As a boxer owner himself and lover of the breed, Tom has been a great supporter of ours for many years and we bet his BDRNE mug has pride of place in his very busy kitchen!
