Lobo's Story...

This is 9 week old Lobo. He is one of three siblings that were surrendered to our organization.  Unfortunately, his siblings died before we could get to them. All three had been suffering from Parvovirus which is most often a death sentence for a puppy.  We would like to thank Liam who volunteered through our Facebook Page to take Lobo to Roadrunner Veterinary Emergency & Specialty Center.

It is so important to get your puppies vaccinated against Parvo. They are vulnerable to the disease until they have received all three shots in their vaccination series.  Owners need to take extra precaution during this time to prevent their puppies from contracting the virus. Puppies should be vaccinated against Parvo at approximately 6, 8, and 12 weeks of age. Puppies should receive a dose of canine parvovirus vaccine between 14 and 16 weeks of age, regardless of how many doses they received earlier, to develop adequate protection.

Lobo was admitted to the hospital on Tuesday 4/30 and was discharged on Saturday 5/4. Roadrunner did an amazing job in helping Lobo to recover.  During this time Lobo received very aggressive Parvo treatment involving IV maintenance, blood plasma transfusions, a nasogastric feeding tube and numerous medications to fight his nausea and diarrhea.  Our discounted rescue invoice came to $4,366.79.  We can only save dogs like Lobo with your generous donations.  Please help us fund Lobo's care by donating today thru PayPal.

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. Some of 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”.
