The ABRA ER Fund
The ABRA Boxer ER Fund has been set up for assistance for rescued boxers, from any rescue group. Each application will be assessed individually. These guidelines will be followed to determine if the dog is eligible for assistance through the ABRA Boxer ER Fund.
Guidelines for Eligibility:
1. The dog requires emergency medical treatment and is in a rescue situation (stray, abandoned, abused, etc.).
Routine veterinary treatments will not be covered by ABRA Boxer ER funds - including, but not limited to:
The ABRA Boxer ER Fund will not provide funding for any treatment of an established personal pet.
All payments will be made directly to the veterinarian issuing treatment.
The members of the ABRA Boxer ER Committee will discuss the application and may request additional information, as needed, to come to a decision.
If the members of the ABRA Boxer ER Committee vote to provide all, or any portion, of the requested funds, a check will be signed by the Treasurer and mailed directly to the treating veterinarian. In some cases an individual may be reimbursed for verified expenditures for prior medical treatment. Receipts will be required.
Notification will be sent to the Contact person listed on the ABRA Boxer ER Fund Application, by electronic mail and/or the US Postal Service, as to the ABRA Boxer ER Committee’s decision on any case.
If the dog is not approved for funding from the ABRA Boxer ER Fund, letter or electronic mail will contact the applicant, providing an explanation for the denial and offering possible alternatives to the requesting party.
The applicant will be responsible for supervising final decisions on medical treatment, follow-up, fostering, spaying or neutering, and adoption. Proof of neutering or spaying must be sent to the ABRA Boxer ER Committee when that procedure has been completed.
The applicant must agree to stay in periodic contact with the ABRA Boxer ER Committee, while treatment is ongoing, and for a period of at least one-year, following treatment. Pictures of the dog must be made available in print or scanned form, prior to the release of funds. These photos are primarily for documentation purposes, but may be used for fund raising activities.
A copy of the Adoption Agreement for the dog should be sent to the ABRA Boxer ER Committee, as soon as the dog is adopted.
A narrative, beginning with how the dog came into Boxer Rescue, what medical conditions warranted the application for ABRA Boxer ER Funds, and how the funds enabled the dog to receive the follow up care, necessary for its rehabilitation and final recovery, should be given to the ABRA Boxer ER Committee Chair.
Follow up on the successful placement of the dog is expected. The adoptive family should update the ABRA Boxer ER Committee, with letters about how the dog is doing, special and endearing things about their new family member, and accompany this information with photographs that can be used in the ABRA Newsletter and on the ABRA
ABRA ER FUND APPLICATION
In addition, information on re-homing of the dog should be provided to the ABRA Boxer ER Committee, including the name and address of the adopting person(s).
The ABRA Boxer ER Committee may vote to waive or delay any of the above requirements in the case of a pressing emergency situation.
