Welcome to Thames Valley Boxer Rescue which
run by myself and my partner, Peter Gillies.
I have been rescuing and rehoming dogs for over 40 years and use my wealth of experience to try to ensure
that all of our rescue dogs are placed into the best possible home, both for the dog and for their new keeper.
TVBR is funded primarily by donations that are made when a boxer is placed into a home and although
we never ask for any other donations, we are always very gratefull for any extras that we do receive.
Without thesesdonations, we would be unable to pay for our veterinary and
kennel bills but what is more
important, we would not be able to help other boxers.
As many of you will know, moving home can be a very stressful time but for
an animal, it is more so because they don't know what is happening to them.
To try to ease this stress, we try where possible to move our dogs direct from their
present home into the new one and it will always be during daylight hours to
allow them to familiarise themselves quickly with their new surroundings.
We do not have any kennels of our own so if we are unable to make a direct move, we
will take a dog into our home but as we have our own boxers, our space is very limited.
If we don't have the room in our home, we will place a rescued boxer either into a
temporary foster home or a boarding kennels but the latter is always a very last resort.
We strongly advise all new keepers to give their boxer a couple of days to settle into the home
before meeting other family members and friends and, most importantly, not to let them off the
until they have had time to adjust to their new surroundings and to the sound of your voice.
Thank you for taking the time to visit us and we urge you to please read our page
