Boxer-Schnauzer Rescue of the Ozarks (BSRO) is an all-volunteer, multi-breed rescue group located in SW MO that serves those areas in MO and other parts of the Midwest where our volunteers exist, thus making placements and home evaluations possible. We are licensed by the State of Missouri, and we hold Missouri state non-profit status.
We are members of Midwest Boxer Rescues (MWBR), an umbrella, regional Boxer rescue group for the Midwest region. MWBR also includes a few other rescue “chapters”. All of the Boxer rescue groups that make up MWBR follow common procedures regarding adoption and intakes.
Our Schnauzer rescue efforts encompass all three sizes of this breed – the Miniature Schnauzer, the Standard Schnauzer and the Giant Schnauzer. We are affiliated with the national Giant Schnauzer rescue organization, HT-Z.
We have basic placement guidelines for any dog in our program, whether it’s a Boxer or a Schnauzer. We require a home visit and reference/vet check on each applicant, and while there are some (few) exceptions, we generally require our applicants to have a fenced yard. All of our breeds are intended to be inside dogs, but they need securely fenced areas where they may safely exercise or take care of elimination needs.
