Patience and Acceptance.
Dobermans that come into rescue are often young, but rarely small puppies. Rescue groups cannot “order up” a dog to everyone’s exact specifications. Please realize that the essence of the Doberman can be found in any of the four colors, in any age - young to old, and in those who, through abuse or misfortune and no fault of their own have issues that create special needs. More than half our dogs have natural ears, but most have docked tails. They are not always the most striking example of the breed. The true spirit and beauty lies within. Look for that and you will find a soul mate.
Foster Homes Needed
Doberman Rescue of New Mexico always has need for additional foster homes. We cover most of the state of New Mexico and west Texas, receiving Dobermans from numerous ‘kill’ shelters. Foster homes are needed to care for rescued Dobermans until new adoptive homes can be found. Fostering can be for as little as a week or two, or can extend for months. During that time, our foster homes provide food, shelter, assess temperament, and help prepare the Doberman in their care for a new permanent home. Without foster homes, we can’t meet our mission. For more information about becoming a foster home, please visit our Fostering Page. If you think that foster care is something you would like to do, please contact us.
Thought About Fostering?
DRNM is always looking for foster homes for our dogs while we try to find them permanent homes. Fostering is a great option if you want to help out but cant support a Doberman for a long period of time.
Donate a Kuranda Bed
You may also choose to donate a bed for our foster cares to provide the ultimate in comfort for Dobermans being fostered.
We also use Patented Kuranda Dog Beds because they are durable, chew proof and easy to clean.
If you would like to donate a luxury Kuranda bed to us, click here.
Thank you for considering adopting a Doberman through Doberman Rescue of New Mexico. The last two years have brought an average of one Doberman per week in need of our attention. If you are considering adopting, then you will be a critical part of rescue and you will get to keep the prize.
Many of our Dobermans come from animal shelters. They are picked up as strays, they are impounded by owners who don’t want them any more. Many are healthy, some are not. Sometimes owners contact us when they can’t keep their dog any longer and transfer ownership to Doberman Rescue .
Our volunteers assess 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. To the best of our ability we assess temperament. Whether the dog is good with children, men, women, other dogs, cats. Is the dog house-broken, content to be alone or in need of a companion dog? Has the dog undergone physical or mental trauma?
We do the best we can to understand as much as we can prior to releasing a dog to a new owner. If a dog seems ‘good-to-go’ and and adoption occurs, we stay in touch to make sure s/he settle in well as rescue dogs often come with baggage that’s not always obvious. There are no 100% guarantees.

Doberman Rescue of New Mexico is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Donations are always welcome to help defray expenses in caring for rescued Dobermans. Our adoption fees cover the basics such as spay/neuter, vaccinations and microchip. Many times a Doberman will require additional tests such as bloodwork, dentals, x-rays, and sometimes surgery before adoption. Donations help us to cover these costs. Donations can be made online using our secure Pay Pal account, or a check in the mail to our address shown on our Contact Page.

Oliver *** SPECIAL NEED *** Donations need for his medical condition
Oliver is a Doberman Pinscher who came to us in very poor body condition. While, we orginally thought that time and love would heal him, it turned out that Oliver was suffering from a hereditary condition called Juvenile Renal Disease caused most likely by irresponsible breeding. The vets originally thought that Oliver would have just a few months to live, but he has proven everyone wrong by gaining weight and confidence and thriving in a specialized foster home.
As much progress as he has made, Oliver's condition is still fatal, but Doberman Rescue of NM has committed to his care for as long as he is happy and smiling his dober-smile at us. Oliver is no longer available for adoption, due to the profound extent of his medical needs, but any support that you can give towards his ongoing medical care would be much appreciated. Oliver is not our only medical case, but we know that his story can be used to help not only his care, but some of the other rehabilitable dogs in our foster program as well.
Monetary donations can be made by clicking here:
We are also accepting donations to help Olivers day-to-day care including:
• Azodyl (90 capsule bottles)
• Epakitin (any size)
• Benazepril 5mg
• Fish Oil capsules (without vitamin D)
And those items can be mailed to Doberman Rescue of NM, 524 Amherst SE, Albuquerque, NM 87106
Thank you for your support and check our our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/dobermanrescueNM for updates on Oliver and some of our other available.
