My mother Adele is a life-long dog lover whose favorite breed is the Boxer. Her involvement with the Second Chance Boxer Rescue organization began with my helping Adele look up a rescue Boxer on the internet. She then got very involved in rescue doing fostering, transporting and other rescue duties for the SCBR over the years.
