Do you understand that Great Lakes Boxer Rescue is a foster home based organization. In order for us to help each dog, we must have a foster family that matches up with their needs. This could mean that for dogs needing to be an only dog, it could take time to find a foster family. If GLBR is not able to secure a foster in a timely manner, do you agree to allow us to share this surrender form with other boxer rescues that we partner with? It is not a promise of being able to help, simply opening up more options.
