HOW CAN YOU HELP?
BOCAR’s number one need is Foster Homes! While all of our volunteers are extremely valuable members of our group, it’s our foster families that keep the rescue running. We could not rescue any boxers without our foster moms and dads!
As a foster parent you will see the boxers at the lowest moments in their lives, and you will watch them as they regain their health and that boxer spirit that we all know and love. Boxers are highly resilient dogs, and will ingrain themselves as a part of your home and heart in no time. Saying goodbye is often bittersweet but it isn’t as hard as you think! Seeing your Foster Boxer being welcomed into their new forever homes and knowing they couldn’t have gotten there without you is both joyous and rewarding. If you think fostering could be for you read more on our foster page.
You can host or organize a number of easy fundraisers which would help fund our efforts to save Boxer lives.
Some Fundraising Event Ideas:
1. Have a BOCAR party! You could invite all your friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors over for a Pizza Party, Pot-Luck, Cocktails, etc. It can be as casual or fancy as you chose. Once everyone is together let them know how you feel about BOCAR’s cause and then collect donations. This is a great way to raise funds and introduce a few more people to our movement.
2. Host a BOCAR garage sale! Gather together your old stuff; enlist friends, family or neighbors to bring over their old stuff. Put up some signs and sell, sell, sell! At the end of the day donate the proceeds to BOCAR!
3. Organize a BOCAR bake sale! Enlist your friends or group to all bake sweet treats and sell it at a local event or supermarket. Most supermarkets are happy to help when it’s for a worthy cause! Just ask the manager.
4. Or feel free to be as creative as you like in coming up with your own fundraising event benefiting BOCAR.
Involve your friends, family, school, church, office or community in your fundraising efforts. The more people we have helping us the more boxers we can save.
Ralphs Community Program:
Every time you shop at Ralph’s market and buy groceries, Ralphs will donate up to 4% of that purchase to BOCAR when you register your Ralphs card. Yes, it is that simple, and it does not cost anything. Simply get everyone you know to sign up. Visit our Donate page for more info.
We occasionally have adoption or fundraising events and can always use more hands to set up/ break down, hand out literature, answer questions, sell raffle tickets, etc. If you are interested in volunteering your time join our BOCAR Volunteers Group. Our Facebook Group Page is where we announce all our volunteer opportunities. Don’t have a Facebook Account? Please email us!
Donations of any amount are welcome. Your generosity is what enables BOCAR to rescue abandoned Boxers and provide them with a second chance at life. As a not for profit charitable organization we are funded solely by private donation. These funds are needed to cover the cost of rescuing dogs and all donations are 100% tax deductible.
