West Coast Boxer Rescue: All-Star Dog Rescue Celebration Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Temporary boarding while dogs find forever homes
We prefer foster homes for our homeless animals but the problem in Southern California is the numbers of homeless boxers is huge. There are never enough fosters for the number of dogs being left in shelters. So boarding allows us to save more dogs while finding good forever homes.
How many pets did this grant help?
Five: Hana, Tutu La Rue, Bruce, Angie, and Graham
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Bruce was dumped at the Kern County Shelter in Bakersfield along with two of his siblings. His owner had a pair of boxers who had a litter. The owner kept four of the pups for a year before he decided that six dogs was too much to care for. Of course, none had been spayed or neutered. West Coast Boxer Rescue picked up all three boxers, and all three were wonderful dogs with great temperaments. All are doing great in their forever homes.
