Our main objective is to rescue and re-home boxers that come to us from many sources, including local animal shelters, owner surrenders and strays. Making adoptions successful Our goal is to see that every boxer in rescue that comes our way gets a second chance to live a life they are so deserving of and given an abundance of love. Rescue involves more than just nursing a dog back to health and placing it in a home that will love and care for it. These dogs not only come into rescue sick, injured, traumatized and unwanted, they often lack necessary socialization and have behavior problems. Each issue must be dealt with to make an adoption successful. To complete the circle of success for these rescues, LSBR volunteers also have work with the prospective family members as they adjust.

I rescue mostly dogs. I have rescued a few cats and kittens. When I have determined that there is not an owner, I take the animal to a Vet and get them healthy (spay, neuter, heart worm treatment, surgeries, etc... and put them up for adoption. I try to foster as many rescues as I can so that they are used to a home environment. This gives the animal a better chance when they go to a new home. I have also assisted a few other rescue groups and individuals with adoptions or boarding of rescued dogs. I am a certified obedience and behavioral trainer. I also assist one of my Vets with adoptable dogs that need a home. I do insist that all people interested in adopting one of my animals fill out an application and I do verify the information as well as do home visits. I am hoping to be able to start showing some of my rescues at a Petsmart in the next month or so.

We provide these dogs with the medical attention they need to heal physically and the love and attention they need to heal emotionally. It is our mission to find each of our dogs a loving home, promote responsible ownership, and educate the public about the gentle, affectionate, and loyal nature of the American Pit Bull Terrier. Through these education and advocacy initiatives, we believe that we can restore the reputation of a breed that was once America’s favorite dog.
