Jackie Drew has been rescuing boxers for nearly 40 years and runs Thames Valley Boxer Rescue
with her partner, Peter Gillies.
TVBR is funded entirely by donations made by new owners when we place a boxer into a home.
We do not ask for any other donations but we are always very grateful for any extra that we do
Without these donations, we would not be able to pay our veterinary and kennelling bills and also,
we would be unable to continue to help other boxers.
As we do not have any kennels of our own, we normally try to move our boxers direct into their
On the odd occasion that we are unable to make a direct move, we will have the dogs in our home with us but as we have our own boxers, space is very limited.
If necessary, we will place a rescue boxer into a temporary foster home or into a boarding kennels but this is always as a very last resort.
Moving home is a very stressful time for anyone but it can be more so for an animal because they don't know what is happening to them.
We try to ease any stress where possible by moving dogs direct from their present home into a new one and only during daylight hours so as to allow them to familiarise themselves with their new surroundings.
We strongly advise owners to give their new pet time to settle in for a few of days before meeting other family and friends and not to let them off the lead until they have had time to adjust to their new surroundings and the sound of your voice.
Thank you for taking the time to visit us and whilst browsing around our website, we do urge to please read the page "All About Bloat"....... a couple of minutes read could save your pets life!
Jackie and Pete,
Thames Valley Boxer Rescue.
