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 .

Other Ways To Help!

We greatly appreciate all who adopt and foster for our organization. Our demand for foster homes almost always exceeds our ability to satisfy those needs. We welcome anyone that wishes to foster a Boxer. We do ask that you consider any challenges in your home and realize that fostering is not always easy.

We would love for all of our rescues to seamlessly blend in with any foster or adoption placement. The reality is that our rescues are often troubled and sometimes come with bad habits like chewing, jumping or digging. Please take these things into consideration when considering whether to foster.

You can always volunteer. We are always looking for transport drivers for locations around New Mexico and also transport to and from local veterinary clinics. Lastly, if you want to support our efforts get the word out to your friends and neighbors. 

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
