Why adopt from Green Acres Boxer Rescue?

  • GABR was established in 1999 and is highly reputable.  We have helped over 1,000 dogs, including many senior dogs and dogs with extraordinary medical needs.

  • We are licensed with the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection as required by WI state law.

  • Our foster homes are knowledgeable about the breed and provide care, training, and rehabilitation for foster dogs.

  • Every dog has a thorough behavioral assessment before being offered for adoption and is continually assessed while in rescue.

  • Every dog is examined by a veterinarian, brought up to date on vaccinations, heartworm testing, and is spayed/neutered prior to placement and we make adopters aware of any ongoing medical needs.

  • We support our adopters and keep in contact well after the adoption is finalized.

In addition, GABR:
  • Works with animal shelters to alleviate over-crowding.

  • Works with other rescues to provide increased adoption opportunities.

  • Is an official 501(c)(3) non-profit and is fiscally responsible.

  • Thoroughly processes adoption applications, including veterinary and personal reference checks.

  • Invites potential adopters to meet the dog in its home environment and does dog-dog introductions as a part of the adoption process.

  • Does home visits to see where the dog will be living and makes sure the home is ready for a dog (has food, bowls, fencing, etc.).

  • Takes the time to review the adoption contract with the adopter.

  • Takes dogs back into rescue at any time, as required in our adoption contract.

  • Never sacrifices quality for quantity and maintains high standards and ethics.
