Notts and Yorkshire Boxer Rescue is a registered charity and we rely solely on donations received from sponsored events or other fundraising activities which we hold throughout the year.

We re-homed 56 Boxer dogs last year and have others in kennels, with long and short-term foster carers and an ever growing list of dogs waiting to come into Rescue

On this page is a list of upcoming events which we will be attending. Please feel free to come along and join us. We would love to meet you and your four legged babes.

These are some of our more recent activities...

Blue Sky at the Blue Cross Funday

The Yorkshire Vet

What a great day we had at the Blue Cross Funday in Thirsk on Sunday 14th August; it was the first time we attended this event and we're sure it won't be our last..!

Everyone was so friendly and welcoming and it was great to be amongst like-minded people who care passionately about dogs and rescue. The sun was shining and everyone has a fantastic day; they are hoping to have a special event next year to celebrate their 30th anniversary so fingers crossed.

We were especially pleased when the 'Yorkshire Vet' Peter Wright came to say hello, their practice is in Thirsk so he is very supportive and we really enjoyed chatting to him. It turns out he has a Boxer called Alf so we were in Boxer heaven.

A big thank you to the Blue Cross for being great hosts..!

Andy Gibson - Marathon man

Andy Gibson ran the London Marathon for NAYBR…

With a load of support and wonderful encouragement from the crowds of spectators and other runners I finally finished in 4 hours 49 minutes and 51 seconds.

This was my third marathon and despite this year’s trials and tribulations I am already looking forward to running another marathon next year, but I don’t yet know where.

People can still donate on my Just Giving Page: here

Editorial Note:

We must thank Andy’s employer, Johnson Matthey, for their very generous donation of an extra £1,000 to his total. Thanks guys..!
