Serving New Mexico

This is Jack, a reverse brindle Boxer. He is only seven months old and has his whole Boxer wriggling life in front of him. Unfortunately, this cutie sustained some serious injuries after falling from a second story balcony here in Albuquerque.Both his pelvis and jaw are broken, the jaw in two places, and both will require extensive specialty surgeries. Dr. Bannon with Veterinary Dentistry and Oral Surgery has agreed to perform the jaw surgery pro bono (THANK YOU!). However, we will also need the expertise of Dr. Schwartz at VESCNM (Veterinary Emergency and Specialty of NM) to properly repair his pelvis.

Boxer Rescue of Albuquerque has been granted right of ownership and we have willingly accepted this formidable medical challenge. While the circumstances are tragic, we are truly honored to work with a great team of veterinary doctors to get Jack healthy once again. Jack is a very special boy and we want to do everything we can for him.

This is a big undertaking for our small rescue and we have only just begun. So, we are asking our Boxer families and supporters to help us, by donating what you can, to get Jack on the road to recovery to enjoy a happy healthy Boxer life. Our ambitious goal is to raise $3,800.00. Please enter “Jack” in the PayPal comments. Thank you!

13th Annual Yard Sale and Fundraiser

Saturday August 22nd, 2020

at PetVet Market

This years Yard Sale will look a little different from our Yard Sales of the past.


We did not rent a storage unit this year and are relying on our supporters to help us out. If you have just a few items that you think will sell quickly, please bring them on the morning of August 22nd. We would also like to encourage you to sell your items on Letgo or CPlus for Craigslist and donate the proceeds through our Paypal button. 


We will be setting up tables on the front patio area of PetVet Market and depending on how many items we have, some tables may extend into the parking lot.


A reminder that this is our major fundraiser of the year, and with the Covid-19 pandemic we have been overwhelmed with surrendered Boxers.


We encourage everyone to come by, say hi and check out our items for sale. Masks will be required and social distancing will be strongly encouraged.

SAT 08/22/2020

8:00 am to 2:00 pm at PetVet Market

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!


Thank you to all of our supporters who donated items and also stayed to help us set up tables bright and early at PetVet Market.


It's been a challenging year, with many Boxers being surrendered due to financial hardship. Thanks again to our supporters who helped make our "Yard" sale a success. It is greatly appreciated!
