Due to our inability to accept any new rescues at this time, the following Boxers and Boxer mixes are currently staying in area shelters, humane societies or with individuals that are unable to permanently keep them.  These are courtesy listings only and are not a part of the Carolina Boxer Rescue program, therefore we make no representations regarding the dogs. 

To learn more about any of the dogs below please contact the shelter/individual listed directly; 

It is our hope that this page will help these dogs find new homes before it's too late

Marabelle - This sweet gal was thrown from a motorboat off the coast of Wilmington, NC and the scoundrels in the boat sped away while a witness watched in horror. She swam for her life and was picked up by Animal Services. She has been at the shelter for several months and was on death row when a nice lady named Jane sponsored her and I’ve been housing her ever since. Marabelle is approximately 8 years old, spayed, current on vaccines and microchipped. She has done fine with her foster mates, but I think would prefer being the only dog, or maybe companion to a similar sized male dog. She is very chill and gentle, and her favorite activities are riding in a car and sunning herself. She walks well on a leash and knows how to sit on command. She weighs about 40lbs, has a beautiful brindle coat, and deserves a second chance....if you have room in your heart and home, please call/Text her foster Mom, Grace, at 910-352-6256




Zeb is a special needs kind of guy and is available for adoption to a very special family.   Are you the family he is waiting for?  He was born with a bilateral cleft lip and cleft palate but that doesn’t slow him down.  He was tube fed until 5 weeks old and is now eating fine on his own.  He comes with his own set of instructions but he is amazing and just like a “normal” puppy. I had my first cleft puppy 21 years ago and I will probably always have clefts in my life.  They make amazing pets!  He has been wormed, is on Heartgard and has had his first vaccines.  Want to know more about this handsome guy?  Call me at 704-287-4845.  You can also see our story on facebook @lilygraceco (4/1/18)
