Welcome to Thames Valley Boxer Rescue which is run by myself and my partner, Peter Gillies. I have
been rescuing and rehoming dogs for over 40 years and I use my wealth of experience to try to ensure
that all of our rescue dogs are placed into the best possible home, both for the dog and for their new
TVBR is funded primarily by donations that are made when a boxer is placed into a home and although
we never ask for any other donations, we are always very gratefull for any extras that we do receive.
Without these donations we would be unable to pay for our veterinary and kennel bills but what is much
more important, we would not be able to help other boxers in need.
As many of you will know, moving home can be a very stressful time but for an animal, it is more so
because they don't know what is happening to them so to try and ease this stress, where possible, we
move our dogs direct from their present home into the new one and always during daylight hours to
allow them to familiarise themselves quickly with their new surroundings.
We do not have any kennels of our own so if we are unable to make a direct move, we will take a dog into
our home but as we have our own boxers, our space is very limited but if we don't have the space in our
home, we will place a rescued boxer either into a temporary foster home or in a boarding kennels but the
latter is always a very last resort.
