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 the rescue
dogs are placedinto the best possible home, both for the dog and for their new keeper.
TVBR is funded primarily by donations 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 boxers.
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 happeningto 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 daylighthours 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 boxers, 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 althoughthe latter is always as 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, a couple of minutes read and the knowledge of “bloat” could possibly save your pets life!
