Rescuing boxers for nearly 40 years          Kennel Club registered



Welcome to Thames Valley Boxer Rescue which is run by myself and my partner, Peter Gillies.


Having been rescuing and rehoming dogs for over 40 years, I use my wealth of experience to try to ensure that all of our rescue dogs are placed


into the best possible home, both for the dog and for their new keeper.


TVBR is funded primarily by donations that are made when a boxer is placed into a home and although we will never ask for any other


donation, we are always very gratefull for any extras that we do receive.


Without donations, we would be unable to pay for our veterinary and kennel bills but more importantly, we would not be able to help other




As many of you will know, moving home can be a very stressful time but for an animal, it is more so because they don't know what is happening


to them.


To try to ease this stress, where possible we try to move our dogs direct from their present home into their new one and always 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 so if we are unable to make a direct move, we will take a dog into our home but as we have our own




space is very limited. 


If we don't have any room in our home, we will place a rescued boxer either into a temporary foster home or into a boarding kennels although


the latter is always a very last resort.


We strongly advise all new keepers to give their boxer a couple of days to settle into the home before meeting other family members and



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.


Thank you for taking the time to visit us and we urge you to please read our page about




and as the email at the bottom of that page


shows, just a  couple of minutes read and the knowledge of “BLOAT” could save your pets life!
