Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are a New Mexico-based rescue for Doberman Pinschers, although on occasion, based on available foster homes and additional need, we will accept purebreds from out of state, and occasionally, Doberman mixes.

About Our Rescue Group:

Thank you for considering a rescued Doberman through Doberman Rescue of New Mexico Inc. The last few years have brought an average of one Doberman per week in need of our help. If you have come to know the wonderful companionship that this breed provides and would like to enrich your family by adopting a rescued Doberman, then you too will become a critical part of Rescue get to keep the prize!

Most of our Dobermans come from animal shelters. They have been taken in as strays or are impounded by owners who, for many different reasons, don't want or can't keep the dog any longer. Sometimes we are contacted by people who wish to transfer ownership to Doberman Rescue due to economic problems, a move, or other life changes that cause them to surrender their Doberman.

Our board members and volunteers assess Dobermans for health and temperament. All Dobermans who come through our organization are neutered or spayed, microchipped, Rabies and Distemper/Parvo vaccinated and tested for heartworm. Most of the dogs that come to us are healthy; some are not. We strive to deliver healthy dogs to their new homes but never turn a Doberman away due to illness or surgical needs. When we have done all that we can for a dog but they remain "Special Needs", we do everything in our power to find them a suitable home and also have a system for hospice among our board members when necessary.

We do our best to understand as much as possible prior to releasing a Doberman to a new home. Although there are no guarantees, we stand behind our adoptions and stay in touch with the new home to make sure their new family member is settling in well. Rescue dogs may come with 'baggage' that's not always obvious. With any new family member - Patience and understanding are required

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
