An online Adoption Application must be completed by every prospective family.  Why, you ask? Because we consider you pivotal to the successful forever future of a VIB (Very Important Boxer)!

Please be patient with our nosy questions. We understand the application is lengthy however, each question has a reason behind it.  A complete application helps us discern the best match for your family! It also demonstrates a level of commitment on your part.  Our boxers are not "just dogs" and our adoptive families are not "just people"!

An incomplete application form cannot be processed. This causes delay and disappointment, two words we would rather not have associated with your HBR experience.  Let's work together!

Continue to check the e-mail address from which your application was submitted.  When your application is processed, we will attempt to make contact both by e-mail and phone.  Keep in mind we are an all volunteer group.  Although we have families and jobs that take precedence in our lives, we work hard to save the breed we love!  We are committed to doing our best to facilitate the adoption process and make it as pleasant as possible!

When the application is received a volunteer will contact you to schedule a Home Visit. There is a $25.00 Home Visit Fee which is nonrefundable. (Note: If you complete an adoption, the $25.00 will be deducted from the appropriate Adoption Fee listed below) This policy is in effect for reasons we will be glad to discuss at the time of your interview.

The Home Visit Volunteer will be your primary point of contact within HBR until your adoption is completed.  After your application has been approved, an appointment will be set for you, (a Very Important Person), to meet our Very Important Boxers!

Once you have had a Home Visit please do not confuse us by submitting questions via info@houstonboxerrescue.org . This too will delay the adoption process.  Your Home Visit Volunteer will be more than happy to assist with any questions or concerns you may have.

Each HBR dog will be fully vetted, spayed/neutered, and if necessary treated for heart worms prior to adoption.  We are committed to disclosing any and all information we obtain concerning every dog in our program, to the prospective adopter. You will receive veterinary records, rabies certificate, identification tag, and your very own wonderful new family member!

The adopted dog will be micro chipped and registered with HBR as the contact. The chips used by HBR only allow one contact.  The Adopter will receive a microchip collar tag with the adoption documents.  At the end of the first year from the adoption contract date and upon written request to HBR by the Adopter and advance receipt of a $20.00 transfer fee, HBR will process the transfer on behalf of the Adopter.

In addition to all of the above, every adopted HBR dog is entitled to one (1) free training session with professional trainer Jack Richards, of Privileged Pets !  Make an appointment in advance by phoning Jack at 281-391-4343.  The free training session must be scheduled within sixty (60) days of the final adoption date on the contract.  Please have the adoption contract with you at the time of your free session.  HBR is devoted to making every adoption a success story!
