Mission

To balance the health, safety, and welfare needs of canines in the Central Texas area by providing nourishment and a safe environment for unwanted, stray, abused, and impounded Boxers. Once placed in new homes they become more than just pets, they become family.

Notes from the nonprofit

Austin Boxer Rescue (ABR) is a volunteer-led, non-profit dog rescue established in 2006 which includes Lone Star Boxer Rescue and DFW Boxer Rescue. ABR serves the entire state of Texas with over 1,000 dedicated volunteers. ABR rescues dogs from community shelters and individual owners who can no longer care for their dogs. Dogs in ABR’s care are provided with clean, comfortable shelter in volunteer foster homes and ABR's kennel in Hewitt TX. Rescued dogs receive nutrition, medical care, preventive treatment, training, rehabilitation, enrichment and loving attention. With ABR they regain their health and trust in people, and prepare for family life with carefully screened adoptive families. In addition to standard rescue and adoption services, ABR offers the Silver Hearts program for senior dogs and dogs requiring ongoing medical care. Since its founding, ABR has rescued more than 5,300 dogs.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Increase funding to rescue more dogs
Increase adoptions
Increase fosters
Increase awareness of need and cost to rescue and rehabilitate dogs

Improve communication to potential adopters and volunteers (website/social media)
Publicize success stories
Educational materials for shelters/veterinarians around central Texas
Partner with philanthropic communities and local businesses to raise awareness

We currently have the capability to care for up to 150 dogs in foster homes throughout central Texas or limited kennel space in our three primary chapters: Austin, San Antonio, and Hewitt.

ABR recently acquired a kennel space in Hewitt, TX and now has the ability to hold 25-30 additional dogs in this space. This allows us to pull more dogs immediately from high-kill shelters all over TX while they wait for foster homes (or adopters). We are working on raising more money to improve this space, and we always need funds for dogs vetting (spay & neuter, heartworm treatment, surgeries, etc.).
