Lone Star Boxer Rescue is a nonprofit 501(C)(3) organization dedicated to the health and well-being of the boxer breed. LSBR is run and managed 100% by volunteers since 1999. Our main objective is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home boxers that come to us from many sources including local animal shelters, owner surrenders, and strays. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to allow us to save more dogs in need.

It's a sad reality, but the truth is that no matter how many dogs we pull into our program, there are always others that need our help, and need it fast. Below are some of the dogs that need our attention today, before their time is up.

How can you help?

Paw Become a foster parent - the number of dogs we can save is contingent upon the number of foster parents we have. We'll work with you to find the right foster dog for your family, making room for one the dogs below. More on fostering...

  Attn: LSBR is on Intake Hold

Please note - previous LSBR dogs whose families need to surrender back to rescue are NOT part of this hold.  PLEASE contact us if this situation pertains to you.

As of November 23, 09,  LSBR is sadly but officially on "rescue hold" and will be unable to rescue any boxers in local shelters or take in any owner surrender boxers without full sponsorship of vetting, boarding and/or foster care.  We are asking other rescues/rescuers and members of the public to please help the boxers that come in to our area shelters.  LSBR will be happy to courtesy post.
 
This difficult decision was made as a result of LSBR's lack of funds, reduction in available fosters and boarding options, reduction in active volunteers, reduction in adoption applications and finally, an overwhelming number of dogs needing rescue.  LSBR hopes this situation will improve with a focus on fundraising and an effort to adopt out the current dogs in rescue.
 
If you are interested in helping a boxer on "rescue me", please contact the intake team at intaketeam@lsbr.org.  You will be asked to sponsor the dog's vetting and either offer the dog foster care or donate a minimum of one month's boarding expense (avg. $200 per month).
 
For the past 10 years, LSBR has rescued hundreds and hundreds of boxers in need and never discriminates against dogs that are old, sick, injured, heartworm positive, white, with tails or without, etc.,  We believe that is what rescue is all about.  We have responded to the pleas of other rescuers and shelters from not only the Houston area but from all over Texas and beyond.
 
Now LSBR has to ask for YOUR help.
 
Unfortunately, fundraising and donations have not kept up with the number of dogs we have taken and placed in wonderful homes. The average cost to rehabilitate a boxer is $600.
 
Please consider fostering "Just One Dog" and joining LSBR as a volunteer to help with fundraising and many other activities.  Thank you for your understanding and support!

attentionLone Star Boxer Rescue is in contact with many shelters in the Texas Gulf Coast area. We do everything we can to make sure that boxers are pulled from shelters, but sometimes we simply have no control over what happens with a specific dog.


We also usually have very little information about a specific dog (for example, if it is good with children, or if it has medical problems, etc.). Shelters simply aren’t the ideal environment for evaluating a dog. The dogs are usually sick, frightened, and/or anxious, and the shelters are very loud.

As much as we appreciate the $50 donations to help us pull a dog from a shelter, we cannot guarantee that a specific dog will be pulled. The funds will definitely help pull a dog from a shelter, but we can’t tell you that your money will go toward one particular dog. However, if we received a substantial donation for a specific dog, we will do everything we can to make sure that dog gets pulled.

The following are problems regarding pulling dogs from shelters:

  • The owner reclaims their dog.
  • The shelter adopts to the public.
  • Another rescue pulls the dog.
  • Behavioral issues manifest themselves in the shelter.
  • The shelter euthanizes the dog because it gets too sick.
We do try to help all dogs in need, but the reality is that we can’t, and sometimes it is out of our hands. Some shelters will release a dog with medical issues early, some will hold a dog past the euthanasia date, some will let rescue take the dog before adopting to the public – but, many will not.  These are issues we deal with everyday.

We desperately need your donations to continue to pull dogs from shelters, but we also want you to understand the constraints we deal with when working with shelters, each of whom has different policies regarding the dogs they take in.
All we can do is promise you that we will do everything we can to rescue every dog we can. Just as in life, there are no guarantees of the outcome. Thank you for your continued support of our efforts.
