Here we are, the end of 2017 mere hours away.

Our thanks to those who have donated to the rescue and rehabilitation of our Boxers. With your support and the hard work of our volunteers, it’s been an amazing year. We brought in 206 Boxers at last count. That’s 206 Boxers that survived being abandoned, facing certain death in shelters and abused by their owners. Donations made their rescue possible.

As we come into 2018 I hope you keep an eye on our activity from events, to fundraisers and how we work as a whole. WHBR is a growing, deeply caring, fun loving family and that includes those that follow us and our donors.

Don’t forget, our animals become very fearful while we, and others, ring in the new year. Please make sure they have updated ID tags on and are inside in a safe environment which they can not escape. They don’t get it's about fun, to them it can be terrifying.

You and yours? Be safe. We don’t want you or your animals to become statistics with injuries or worse. Let’s give the paramedics and animal control the night off.

We wish you a safe send-off of 2017 and a bright 2018.

In its 6th year, Giving Tuesday is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) kicking off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

For the Wigglin' Home Boxer Rescue family, every day is a day of hope.

Hoping for good, kind-hearted, nurturing families to be looking for that perfect dog to join their family as they start a new year. Hoping that pup is one of ours.

Hoping we continue to expand with new business partners, volunteers and donor base.

Hoping for continued success winning respected titles for our organization as a whole and for individual volunteers.

We hope the work we do, and the stories we tell help shed light on the well-intended yet failing shelter systems in our country, irresponsible backyard breeding and poor care of the very animals that depend on us. While shedding light on those issues we equally strive to educate and work towards answers in a respectful manner.

Today, in particular, we hope donors find our organization credible and worthy of their donation. Today gives us hope that we will be able to clear our current vet bills thus making room for more pups to enter into our care. Daily we have to turn away Boxers needing help, Boxers who have hours left in shelters. For so many it is, understandably, difficult to see pictures of Boxers in need- it is hundred-fold heartbreaking to stand in front of their kennels and have to walk away. To have to pick and choose.

Each donation makes it possible for us to open one more kennel and take a pup home with us rather than walking away. Know if you choose WHBR to receive your funds, we understand the trust you are placing in us and in turn the trust each Boxer places in us when it walks out of a shelter into our care. We do not do what we do half-heartedly. We believe in our cause, in our extended family of volunteers and adopters and in our donors who support us.      

Thank you for taking the time to learn about us and of course, thank you for your donation should you find us worthy.

WARNING- PHOTO ATTACHED ARE TOUGH TO SEE (MEDICALLY NEEDY)

You've no doubt read about dogs being surrendered to our care. These cases come in many different forms. Loss of work, illness, death, military, and in this case- funding and housing.

When this lil' Boxer's Mom realized we would be at an event near her, she made a tough decision. She came to the event to ask us to take her pup. She is homeless, living with friends, has no money, and her sweet girl was in desperate need of medical care she could not afford.

Working the event was 15yo Markayla King, daughter of Wigglin’ Home Boxer Rescue’s founder, DeAnn King. Markayla placed an urgent call to her Mother. A seasoned rescue volunteer, the severity of the situation was evident in her voice. WHBR had to take this girl in and help her, now! The green light was given, Markayla drew up a surrender form which the owner signed giving WHBR full responsibility of her sweet girl. Imagine the heart this took, the pain and heartbreak she felt as she left without her pup, and at the same time knowing she had finally made the right choice.

WHBR is about caring for needy dogs. We do not pass judgement, we can only imagine the sadness and heartbreak felt in many of these cases and when one has so very little, this loss must weigh even greater.

This girl’s name is Jo C.

Once Jo C’s Mom had left, Markayla whisked her home for a soothing bath and a close inspection of her condition. Jo C will see PNW Northwest Visiting Vet, it is then we will know the extent of her situation. No matter the results, we will care for this girl and make her comfortable. It is clear she and her Mother have had a hard life and we are grateful we were trusted with her care.

JoC spent several days with the King family and has now moved on to her foster home where she gets three baths a week with medicated shampoo. She stands peacefully, willingly for the 10 minutes it needs to stay on then she is rinsed and toweled and snuggled.

Imagine had her owner simply set her free to fend for herself or taken her to a shelter where she most certainly would have been put down OR  what if there were not humans, such as Markayla, and organizations such as Wigglin' Home Rescue to love this girl. Imagine that world.
