Boxers trickle into rescue for many
reasons. Some are found as strays or are left at shelters. Some
come to us directly as owner-surrenders for various reasons: death,
injury, or illness of the dog's owner, divorce, allergies, moving,
and behavioral issues. We realize that surrendering one's dog can
be a painful decision. If we can help you find a way to keep your
Boxer (by offering guidance on behavioral issues, training
problems, etc.), we are more than happy to help. Here is one
resource that offers advice on finding ways to keep your dog: Can We Help
If you are thinking of surrendering your Boxer to Green Acres
Boxer Rescue of WI, please fill out our Pre-Surrender Form. The form must be
filled out thoroughly. Once we receive the form, we will be
in touch with you. Please note, this is a PRE-surrender form. If
you surrender your dog, we will need your signature on a separate
surrender form (which we will supply to you) in order to transfer
legal ownership of your dog to GABR.
We do appreciate receiving a monetary donation from the dog's
owner. Upon receipt into rescue, the dog will be spayed/neutered
and brought up to date on vaccinations as needed. The dog will be
heartworm tested and started on heartworm treatment. Sometimes the
dogs are in rescue for weeks or even months before being placed.
During that time, they live in foster homes where they are fed
high-quality food. We do our best to provide socialization and
obedience training for the dogs in our care. All of these
expenditures far exceed our adoption fee. Therefore, donations from
the former owner are much appreciated.
We do give priority to Boxers that are being held in shelters,
since they are in danger of euthanasia. We decide which dogs we can
take on a case by case basis.
You will be asked to sign a surrender agreement. In signing the
surrender agreement, you must have the understanding that you have
relinquished all rights to the dog and may not re-claim the dog
once he/she has been placed in a new home. However, you are welcome
to contact us and we will be glad to let you know about your dog's
new home. It is helpful if you can bring the dog to us. We have to
do a lot of traveling when we place a dog, so we must place the
burden of traveling on the surrendering party. Please
understand that if you surrender a dog to our organization, you
will not be eligible to adopt a dog from us, so please do not put
us on the spot by asking.
