Please help us help River

Found abandoned in the Green Swamp in west central Florida with a badly broken jaw and two large holes in her chest, River is now with Second Chance Boxer Rescue.  It is believed she was dumped in the swamp and attacked possibly by a wild boar.

Her medical bills will be extensive but we feel River deserves an opportunity to enjoy life as every dog should.

Second Chance Boxer Rescue's website.



The mission of Second Chance Boxer Rescue (SCBR) is to rescue, rehab, and re-home dogs throughout Florida, (specifically boxers) that would be, otherwise euthanized.

“Second Chance” is not a second chance for dogs, because that would presume they had a first chance and failed. The majority of the dogs we rescue never had any chances, first, second, or otherwise. The name of our rescue refers to giving humans a second chance to provide a safe, healthy, and loving home and environment for our dogs, since most of these dogs come to us after they have been abused or neglected by their owners.

SCBR solely relies on volunteers to get the work done and no one receives compensation for their work. SCBR receives no funding from the government or the United Way. Our adoption fees and donations from other dog lovers cover our costs.

Please visit our ' Help SBCR ' page to volunteer, adopt, or donate.
