The Thames Valley Boxer Rescue Conditions Of Adoption (TVBR)


1. Post re-homing follow up contact

After completing and submitting an adoption form, a home visit will be arranged either by ourselves or by a representative of TVBR. Following our initial checks, we will only contact you when we have a boxer in need of adoption and that we feel may be right for your family circumstances. After any adoption, the new keeper will be contacted with the object of ensuring that your boxer is happily settled and to offer any advice or assistance if it is needed.

2. The Microchip Registration

From the 6th April, 2016, it is a legal requirement that all dogs MUST be micro-chipped and wear an identification disc with the Registered Keepers Name, Address and Telephone Number. Failure to do so in a public place could render you to a fine of up to £5000.00. Should your boxer go missing, you MUST notify TVBR, your local dog warden and www.doglost.co.uk immediately.
(you will find a link to doglost under "useful links" on our website).

3. Pedigree Papers

Under no circumstances whatsoever will any pedigree papers be passed on to the new keeper of a TVBR boxer.

4. Pet Insurance

TVBR will not be he held responsible for any veterinary fees incurred after an adoption. An offer of four weeks free PetPlan insurance is included with every boxer adoption as we advise all new keepers to take out pet insurance to cover any veterinary fees. We use PetPlan for our own boxers but new keepers are under no obligation to use the 4 weeks free offer.

5. Feeding And Housing

All keepers must undertake to feed and house any adopted boxer to the satisfaction of TVBR. All boxers will only be homed as pets and under no circumstances will we place a dog into a home if it is intended that it will have to spend any time living outside. Should we become aware of a situation where one of our adopted boxers is being kept outside of the family home, we will take immediate steps to remove the dog from the home.

6. Donations

TVBR is supported and administered voluntarily and all new keepers are requested to make a minimum donation to the rescue at the time of adoption. We regret that donations made cannot be refunded should you decide not to keep your boxer for whatever reason.

7. Documents

We will dispatch any available documents (i.e: vaccination card, etc) to you immediately after an adoption. PLEASE NOTE: We reserve the right to remove any dog from a home if the required signed adoption form together with a donation is not received within fourteen (14) days of dispatch from TVBR.

8. If You Can No Longer Keep Your Boxer

Should it become necessary to for you to part with your adopted boxer for any reason, TVBR must be notified and UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES may your boxer be passed on to a third party without our prior consent. We will arrange for the necessary re-homing.

9. Your Liabilities To Us

TVBR cannot and will not be held responsible for any claims, liabilities, damage or costs whatsoever incurred in connection with your boxer after the adoption and the new keeper should indemnify TVBR or its proprietor(s) by any third parties. We would suggest that your boxer should be insured against such liabilities.

10. Unsuitable Homing

TVBR reserves the right to remove any boxer that is considered to have become unsuitably placed due to any change in circumstances. In such cases it is regretted that any donation that may have been made to TVBR cannot be refunded.

11. Change Of Address
