Since 2004, Legacy Boxer Rescue's (LBR) all-volunteer mission has been to seek out boxers in need in North Texas, and create the legacy they deserve– a loving family and home of their own. To achieve this mission, LBR pulls dogs in need from shelters and accepts surrendered dogs directly from owners without regard to age or health. LBR has 233 active volunteers and averages 100-150 adoptions each year. All dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.
The generous grant from The Grey Muzzle Organization will support and expand the Legacy Silver and Legacy Keepers programs. Keepers are boxers that find a new lease on life through Legacy Boxer Rescue (LBR), but are not available for adoption typically due to age-related and health issues. These boxers are considered to be in hospice care and will be loved and cared for by their foster families for the remainder of their lives.
