| Adoption Application
Status Requests info- Please Read
In an effort to better communicate with applicants seeking status on
their adoption applications, we have created the form below.
This form will help us locate, check status, and advise you as to
where your app is in our approval cycle. We know you are eager to adopt
one, or two of our wonderful Boxers, or you would never have filled out
our 7 page adoption app. But please think about how long that app
was, and multiply that by at least 100 per week, and you'll have some
idea on the time it takes to process them all. Add some more time
in there for reference checks, and a home visit, and sprinkle in these
time consuming application status requests, and you'll know why we are apologizing
right now for delays in getting back to you.
Boxers and Applicants
are not matched on a first come, first served basis. On average, it takes
between 1 week and 3 months to adopt a Rescue Boxer, depending
on your personal circumstances and flexibility. For
example; If you are looking for a young female, who is good with other
dogs, cats, and small kids, please know that yours will be a hard
application to fill.
As stated above, we get over 100 hundred applications a
week, and we place about 40 dogs per month.
Matching Boxers suitable for placement with younger
children, other dogs, cats, and special needs, yours and
theirs, increases the application review time and adoption time.
Please allow us at least a week or so before
requesting status. These status requests take us away from
reviewing your Applications and matching you with dogs.
yes, we realize that the Boxer you may have your heart set on, may be
adopted before you're approved. Should your first choices
already have found their forever home, we have provided a space below
for you to advise us as to other dogs you are interested in.
Be happy for the ones that have been placed... and know that there are
way too many fantastic dogs waiting in their place.
We hope you feel that
the right Boxer is worth waiting for.
This form is only for homes that have already
submitted an adoption application. If
you have not submitted an application yet, please go to our Adoption
Procedure page and follow the instructions there.
