Second Chance Boxer Rescue Inc. is an independent, 501c3 not-for-profit organization that places purebred boxers in loving homes that may enter rescue as an owner surrender (due to divorce, death, etc.), a stray, through a shelter, and/or because of abuse or neglect situations. We help provide a safe harbor for Boxers that might otherwise be destroyed and place them in homes throughout NY and all of New England (ME, NH, MA, CT, RI, VT).

Second Chance Boxer Rescue is not affiliated with any other boxer rescues. We were incorporated in New York in 2000 and prior to that we were known as Rochester Boxer Rescue & Maine Boxer Rescue.

Not all rescues are the same. All boxers that come to SCBR are taken to foster homes immediately. All dogs are evaluated on their temperament and personality, spayed or neutered and made sure they are current on their vaccinations and heart worm/lyme test prior to placement. We will NEVER ask you to go to a shelter or go to the home of the person surrendering their dog. Before you adopt from any rescue, ask the rescue if they evaluate the dogs and put them in foster homes. If the answer is no, please reconsider taking an non evaluated dog into your home with your children or other pets.
