Serving New Mexico

Giving New Life to Forsaken Boxers in Need

We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Donations of any amount are welcome. Your generosity is what keeps us able to rescue abandoned Boxers and provide them with a second chance at life.

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

Our mission is that no Boxer or family pet end up unwanted, lost, homeless, abused or injured.

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”.
