Many of Atlanta's animals need help. Some simply need a warm bed and a family to love, while others are in desperate need of life-saving medical attention. Thankfully, there are many local organizations and people dedicated to helping neglected animals get a second chance. One such organization, the Atlanta Boxer Rescue, goes above and beyond to care for the popular breed. Since 2008, it has rescued, rehabilitated, and helped find homes for boxers in metro Atlanta. Like most animal rescue organizations, the Atlanta Boxer Rescue relies on volunteers and donations to help care for the animals it saves. Unlike most animal rescues, however, it raises funds and awareness by bringing Atlantans together for a music festival. For the past five years it has hosted Boxerstock, a family-friendly (and pet-friendly!) music and dog fest filled with bands, vendors, and more. The next Boxerstock takes place Oct. 20, 2013.
