Serving New Mexico

We are asking for your support and prayers!

This is Ruby. She is only 10 weeks old and is currently hospitalized at the Veterinary Emergency Center on Montgomery Blvd..

As you can see from her pictures her condition is critical.  Ruby was surrendered to us by an individual that thought this condition would correct itself without seeking veterinary care.  Ruby was not eating or drinking at all prior to being surrendered to us on 11/19.

We have been able to determine that she had hookworms that were left untreated for almost two weeks. Ruby was so sick that she received a blood transfusion her first night in the hospital.  We have seen some improvement since the blood transfusion but she is not yet out of the woods.

Hookworm infection causes disease through worms eating and sucking blood from the dog's intestine.  This can cause significant blood loss, which can be very severe in young puppies and if left untreated, as in this case, results in a condition called "failure to thrive".

Ruby has been released from the hospital but faces a long road to recovery.  We do know that she is a fighter and still has so much love in her heart for her caregivers!  We will do everything in our power to see that she improves everyday until she is adopted into her forever home!

Save a Boxer Today!

Dogs are more than just a pet, they are a family too. That’s why Boxer Rescue of Albuquerque is here to help every Boxer find a new family. We are a nonprofit organization recognized as a 501(c)3 charitable dog rescue group that serves the state of New Mexico.

As we care for displaced Boxer pups, we wish that no dog ends up unwanted, lost, homeless, abused, or injured. Get to know more about us today. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more details.

Mission Statement

Boxer Rescue of Albuquerque, Inc., is a non-profit, tax-deductible 501(c)3 charitable organization dedicated to the medical treatment, rehabilitation and permanent placement of homeless Boxers in loving homes throughout New Mexico. 

Our organization has been in existence since 1995 and has found loving homes for hundreds of Boxers.  

Our goal is to care for and to be a voice for those Boxers that have been forsaken for whatever reason and to find loving, nurturing forever homes.

Who We Are and What We Do

We are dedicated volunteers that open our homes to abandoned, neglected, and injured Boxers. We are an “in-home” rescue and do not operate a brick and mortar kennel facility. Our rescued Boxers are placed in temporary “foster homes” which allows us to learn about their needs, personality and temperament. We can then communicate those needs to our prospective adopters to establish a baseline that will ultimately help us determine adopter/Boxer compatibility.

Most of our volunteers have full time jobs but find the time to schedule and transport our rescued Boxers to local veterinary clinics. Our volunteers review applications and perform home visits. Our volunteers transport surrendered and rescued Boxers around New Mexico. Our volunteers also spend many days and nights in our local veterinary emergency clinics.

Our volunteers face death for those Boxers that have been in our hospice care. Our volunteers also attend our adoption events twice a month. Bottom Line: Our volunteers are instrumental in the journey of our rescued boxers and we could not do what we do without their support and dedication. Every one of our volunteers plays a very important part in a rescued Boxer’s “happily ever after”.
