Red Dirt Boxer Rescue would like to thank our local Vet Heroes for their support and care for our rescued Boxers.
When Boxers come into our program they do so without a health screening. We get a call from a shelter saying, “We have a boxer, come get it.”
We go get it.
Sometimes you can see the injuries or illnesses when you get there. Most times, we don’t know what is lurking under the skin. So many come in with heartworms, Colitis, intestinal worms and other parasites. Even healthy dogs eat into rescue’s meager finances with needed, vaccinations, heartworm preventative, and spays/neuters.
As they say “nothing in life is free” but the discounts they offer are the next best thing. This allows us to use your donations to continue helping the lives of so many. Without the vets who offer discounts for rescues, we couldn’t help half the Boxers we do and we would have to make horrible decisions on what is the limit to spend on a Boxer in need.
“Thank You, we can’t do this without you!”
If you do not have a vet, consider using a rescue friendly vet, one who gives back to your community, helping local rescues.
