WHAT HAPPENS WHEN MY APPLICATION IS APPROVED?

SO YOU'RE READY TO ADOPT?
So, you're ready to adopt a boxer from Legacy Boxer Rescue? Before we can begin the adoption process, you must fill out an Adoption Application in it's entirety. The following requirements must be met before an adoption can take place:

  • Applications will only be accepted within the Dallas/Ft Worth Metroplex. Please email us if you are outside of this area so that we can assess your situation individually.

  • Any other pets that you have must be fully vetted, this includes that they be spayed/neutered and up to date on ALL vaccinations. No exceptions will be made to this rule, so please do not apply if your pets are not spayed/neutered and current on vaccinations. This also includes cats! All dogs and cats (since it was only recently discovered that cats are susceptible to heartworms some exceptions may be made for indoor cats in this regard) must also be tested for heartworms and on some form of heartworm prevention. If you purchase heartworm prevention and/or flea/tick products through an online pharmacy like www.petcarerx.com we will need copies of your purchase history which can be obtained from the online pharmacy.

  • All applicants must be 21 years of age and living on your own. If you are under 21 and living at home with your parents, please have them fill out the adoption application for you.

  • If you have children under the age of ten, certain criteria will need to be met before a boxer is placed in your home. LBR will be happy to discuss this with each family as the need arises.

  • All domesticated animals (with the exception of feral cats) must be kept as indoor residents of your home. We do not place our boxers in homes with or as outdoor companion animals.

  • We will not place two female dogs in the same home. With the dominance issues commonly seen in females, we feel we can increase the odds for a successful adoption by not placing females in the same home together.

ONCE WE'VE RECEIVED YOUR APPLICATION...

Once we have received your completed application, here is a list of what you can expect. We realize that this seems like a lot, and it may even seem invasive to some, but we want you to adopt a boxer if you meet the criteria described herein, so please bear with us. Most, if not all, of our volunteers work full time and have families of their own to care for, and we do our best to ensure that all applications are processed in a timely fashion but we do ask that you please have patience.
  • An LBR volunteer will check the personal and veterinary references listed on your application. Since most vets require their clients permission to release any records, please contact your vet so that we are able to complete the vet check for your application. Once the personal and veterinary references are checked, and deemed acceptable, an LBR volunteer will contact you to schedule a home visit. We conduct the home visit to ensure that our boxers have a safe and loving environment to call home.

  • On the application, you are asked to list any boxers that you have seen on LBR's website that you may be interested in adopting. But please be aware that often times we have more than one applicant interested in the same boxer. In that case, the home best suited for the boxer will be chosen for placement. LBR does not do adoptions on a “first come, first served” basis, and in many cases we may make a recommendation depending on your circumstances.

  • After finding a boxer that you and LBR are in agreement would be a good match for you, we ask that you make arrangements to meet the boxer. Generally, this involves attending one of our Meet Our Boxer events, or we may ask the foster family to contact you directly. When you visit a boxer, we ask that all family members be present, as well as any current pets if possible.

  • In some cases, we may feel that a particular boxer is not a good match for you and your family, please do not be offended by this. LBR does not take the placement of a boxer lightly, and we strive to do our best to ensure that each placement is forever, as many of these wonderful boxers have led very unstable lives before coming into rescue and we only want what is best for them. We will be happy to disclose our reasons for the decisions that we make in this regard.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN MY APPLICATION IS APPROVED?
Once your application has been approved and you have found the boxer of your dreams, there are only a few items remaining in this process.
  • Our adoption donations range from $175.00 to $350.00 depending on the dog being adopted. This determination is based on many factors, to include, but not limited to the dog's age and any past adoption history with LBR. Our boxers are examined for any health issues and treated accordingly, spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, heartworm tested, and are protected from heartworms, fleas and ticks while in foster care. LBR uses Revolution, an all-inclusive topical agent for heartworm, flea and tick prevention, or Heartgard heartworm prevention and Frontline flea/tick prevention. While in foster care, LBR volunteers work with the boxers on basic obedience commands, but we cannot guarantee that every dog will learn basic obedience commands while in foster care. LBR always recommends that the new owners find a training center that utilizes only positive training techniques for their new family member to help him or her be the best possible companion animal for you and your family.

  • Upon adoption LBR will have you sign a legally binding adoption agreement. If there ever comes a time when you wish to give up your boxer he/she MUST be returned to LBR as stated in the adoption agreement. Adopter also agrees that the provided Legacy Boxer Rescue tag will remain on the boxer at all times, and LBR must be notified if the boxer is ever lost or stolen, we have many resources in the area that could help in locating your boxer should such an event ever take place.

  • Be prepared for the arrival of your new boxer, please click here for a list of items that LBR recommends that you have on hand when he/she comes home.
