Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
It can be a rocky road for all abandoned and abused dogs in Florida, particularly for purebreds like Boxers, for which many irresponsible "backyard" breeders do not make a commitment to the dogs but, rather, to their own pocketbooks.  The consequences are predictable and, unfortunately, ongoing.  We founded Boxer Rescue Angels of Florida, Inc. to energetically address the needs of abandoned and abused Boxers by encouraging active participation from a broad and diverse spectrum of volunteers.  Our founding members, having extensive experience with other rescue organizations, understand that the key to active and broad participation is to provide volunteers with ownership of, not only the problem itself, but solutions to the problem.  We do this by giving participatory volunteers, called Advisory Voting Members, expansive opportunities to steer the course of the organization to better serve abandoned Boxers, in part, by giving them voting rights for Board members which is somewhat unusual for rescue organizations of this type.  Our founding members strongly believe this new type of rescue organization will bolster capabilities for saving more Boxers and have fun doing it! 
Programs
Description Abandoned and abused Boxer Dogs that are rescued by Boxer Rescue Angels of Florida require a broad spectrum of veterinary care, depending on the dog's condition when rescued.  Care can range from simple evaluation and Heartworm medication to extensive surgery for those dogs that can be saved.  The fund also pays for spay or neuter procedures before the dog is adopted to responsible pet owners.  Preferential rates (In Kind Donations) are provided by our Veterinarian network, but veterinary expenses for our rescued Boxers remains our single biggest challenge to saving all Boxers that are in need.
