Who We Are
Atlanta Boxer Rescue is a non-profit organization comprised of experienced and dedicated animal rescue volunteers, many of whom are Boxer owners themselves. They work with local animal shelters to identify Boxer dogs that need to be rescued, move those Boxers to foster homes for care and rehabilitation, spay/neuter and vaccinate the Boxers as needed, and seek qualified adopters to give those Boxers new, loving homes.
