TVBR and the Coronavirus.
As we are both in the
age, we are not able to take in any dogs or to make any home visits at this time.
If you need to find a new home for your boxer, we are quite happy to put details and pictures on our website.
It may be possible for us to arrange for any prospective homes to be vetted before putting both parties
in touch with each other to arrange for any rehoming but this will depend on the situation at that time.
Hopefully, this is only going to be for a short while and that we all keep well and we can return back to normal.
elcome to Thames Valley Boxer Rescue which I run jointly
with my partner, Peter Gillies.
We have been rescuing and rehoming dogs for over 40 years and use our experience to try to ensure that all of our dogs are placed into the
best possible home, both for the dog and for the new keeper.
TVBR is funded primarily by donations made when a boxer is placed into a home and although we never ask for any other donations, we are
always very grateful for any extras that we do receive. Without donations, we would not be able to pay our veterinary and kennel bills but,
what is much more important, we would not be able to help other boxers in need.
As many of you will know, moving to a new home can be a very stressful time but for an animal, it is even more so because they don't know
what is happening to them. To try and ease any stress, we will always try to move our dogs during daylight hours so as to allow them to
familiarise themselves quickly with their new surroundings.
We do not have any kennels of our own s0 if for any reason we are unable to make a direct move, we will take a dog into our home but as we
have our own boxers, space is very limited. If we don't have the space at home, we will place a rescued boxer into a temporary foster home
or a boarding kennel but the latter is always as a very last resort.
We advise all new keepers to give their new boxer several days to settle into the home before meeting any other family members or friends
and, most importantly, not to let them off the lead until they have had time to adjust to their new surroundings and to the sound of your voice.
We do urge you to please read our pages about ALABAMA ROT and BLOAT and especially the email at the bottom of the BLOAT page that
proves just a couple of minutes read and having the knowlege about “BLOAT” could save your pets life!
Thank you for taking the time to visit,
