What is The Austin Boxer Rescue?

Austin Boxer Rescue (ABR) is a volunteer-led, non-profit dog rescue established in 2006. ABR serves the entire state of Texas with over 1,000 dedicated volunteers including more than 300 volunteer foster homes. ABR rescues dogs from community shelters and individual owners who can no longer care for their dogs.

Dogs in ABR’s care are transported and provided with clean, comfortable shelter, nutritious food, needed medical care, preventive treatment, training, rehabilitation and kind human care. With ABR they regain their health and trust in people and prepare for life with their adoptive family. In addition to standard rescue and adoption services, ABR offers special programs for senior dogs and dogs requiring ongoing medical care.
