Adopting a shelter pet can be a life changing experience.  For them, and for you too!  We have many dogs and cats in our shelter just waiting for a home as well as animals in foster homes, too.  You are always welcome and encouraged to visit the shelter to see all the animals there, but you can meet most of those available online.  A few may not be posted yet as they are coming in every day


Our adoption application is also available online.  So you may be just one click away from meeting the love of your life!    


Because of you, we've accomplished so much, and for the ten years now, our lifesaving rate is over 90%!* We need your help to continue saving more lives than ever before. Whether you give a cash donation or necessary supplies for daily animal care, as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, we depend on your help to allow us to keep saving lives.  (*In 2019 our save rate dropped to 89.25 due to taking in a large hoarding situation with many sick, feral cats)

Items We Need

A list of what we need most at this time.   Critical Needs List and our regular Wish List found here.


Help us save lives by providing a temporary, loving and restful retreat for animals in need. We provide all the supplies, food and medical attention, so there is no cost to you as a foster parent… all you provide is love! 


In an effort to raise money for the animals in our community, Boxers Bed and Biscuits has created the Golden Biscuit Challenge.
To participate, players donate a one-time fee of $25 to receive 4 weeks of clues hinting towards the coveted Golden Biscuit’s location. Once the biscuit has been retrieved, all we ask is that it is returned home to Boxers, where one lucky player will receive a $1,000 finders check! 

Donations will benefit 4 nonprofit organizations including Ciara’s Grace, HSOP, HSOV, and Parkersburg Police- K9 Unit.
We hope you can join the hunt!
All updates will be published to the Boxers Facebook page.
