I'm participating in this year's Strut Your Mutt on behalf of NorCal Boxer Rescue (NCBR). NCBR has saved so many boxers in need, but four have come to us over the past four years--a beautiful fuzzy princess, a bonded senior couple, and a bouncy senior (pictured) who has no idea how old she is. All four came to NCBR with medical issues. All four have taught us lessons in becoming better people.
Your support makes it possible for NorCal Boxer Rescue to continue its important work of rescuing dogs in need and to fulfill its mission of prioritizing the most vulnerable dogs, including those who are ill, injured, senior, or otherwise at greatest risk of being killed in a shelter. The medical and behavioral rehabilitation these dogs require and receive is expensive. Adult dogs cost, on average, about 4 times their adoption fees, and seniors (which made up 20% of the dogs NCBR pulled in 2018!) cost 13 times their adoption fees. These are costs that NorCal Boxer Rescue can sustain only with our support. And when you support NCBR you can be sure that your dollars are going directly to the dogs, as the organization is operated entirely by volunteers!
Thank you for joining me in supporting NorCal Boxer Rescue and its dogs!
