Guest Blog by: Northern Plains Boxer Rescue

Northern Plains Boxer Rescue is hosting the 2nd annual Boxers and Bikers Poker Run June 18, 2011 in Tea SD, during Teapot Days.  We’ll start at 9 am at the Tea Middle School (map) parking lot. A poker run is an organized event where participants visit several “sniff trail” checkpoints, getting their poker hand card marked and at the end of the run if all of your stops are marked you get to draw cards. The best poker hands win prizes. First place is a 32″ TV, second is a blue ray player, and third is an iPod nano. The event begins at 10 am with the parade. Poker hands will be drawn at 5pm and prizes at 6 pm.

Anyone interested in participating in this 100% non-profit event can register at Registration fee is $20 a person. If you register by June 5 you will receive a free “doggie” gift bag.

Meeting one of our boxers looking for a forever home: Hi, my name is Joel. I’m a handsome 2 year old white boxer boy. I love playing with my resident boxer sisters and going for walks. I’d be the perfect running companion. My sister, Sky, and I came into rescue together and she has already found her forever home. Everyone keeps telling me I’ll find a new home soon because I’m so good looking and sweet. My adoption donation is $350. Like all NPBR boxers 3 years of age and under, I will be adopted out with an obedience contract. My foster dad also says I’d be best in a home with a 6 foot fence.

Check out Joel and all of the available boxers out at or email for more information!
Northern Plains Boxer Rescue is a nonprofit, all-volunteer effort where every boxer counts. We are an organization that strives to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home all boxers in need. Northern Plains Boxer Rescue makes every effort to educate the public about the boxer breed and responsible pet ownership. We serve a five state region: South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, North Dakota, and Minnesota. Currently we have more than 50 boxers in rescue who need a good, loving home. We operate solely out of foster homes so we know every boxer in our rescue and their lovable personalities. Without our foster homes and other volunteers, we could not operate. We are always looking for new volunteers and foster homes!
