$7,500 Goal


Minnesota Boxer Rescue is a non-profit, foster-based dog rescue organization primarily serving Minnesota and surrounding areas. We are run 100% by dedicated and committed volunteers.  What this means is that YOU help make this rescue possible! Check our Facebook and Instagram accounts to see a sampling of the dogs that we were able to rehome last year as well as some of the new dogs that just entered rescue. 

MNBR's largest expenses come from our veterinary care. Your financial donations help to cover those expenses. We work with several great vets which provide great (sometimes lifesaving) services at a discount, but it all adds up. Every dog coming into rescue is given basic vetting, including spay/neuter if needed, but some dogs require extra medical attention.

Through August of this year, we have had 42 adoptions with 8 dogs currently in foster care. We have spent $32,000 on vetting while collecting only $13,000 in adoption fees. In addition to our vet expenses, we also have paid for boarding ($4,000), transportation and supplies (microchips, bedding, collars leashes, etc,) ($4,000).  We have spent an average of $800 per dog while collecting an average of only $309 per dog. Your generous donations are what make up the difference and allow us to continue to rescue.

This year we are asking for people to commit to becoming sustainers and pledging an amount to donate monthly. This provides MNBR with a consistent stream of revenue which helps cover the average $500 shortfall between the amount we spend on a dog compared to the amount recovered from adoption fees. 


A special thanks to Alliant Engineering who has pledged a $1,000 matching gift to our campaign this year which will be unlocked if we are able to achieve our goal of 100 unique donors. Both monthly donations and one-time donations are eligible for this grant.
