I recently adopted a dog brought up to Minnesota by compassion without borders. Desperado(previously Brian) has quickly become the center of my life and I cannot thank compassion without Borders enough. He was transported halfway across the country, and I stumbled upon him at a shelter here. Knowing nothing about his background, I brought him home and I can't imagine having any other dog. Within a few daysof desi's adoption, someone with compassion without borders called me to check on desi and ask how he was doing so she could tell the vet who knew him back in CA. I got an email that night with a bit more information about his background, and ttis has all made me incredibly thankful to the organization for the help they gave Desi and how personable their contact with me was.

I have volunteered for this organization for over ten years and have been continually amazed by the scope, depth, and impact of their work for the animals.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get them more funding so we could do even more and hire some of the volunteers who are currently limited in their scope since they have to work full time jobs elsewhere in order to get by.

I adopted my little pup, Rosie, from the Marin Humane Society in Novato. I was told she was brought to the states by Compassion without Borders. She is a wonderful dog for me… maybe Havanese/Maltese/Poodle mix…. adorable. I love her so much and she loves me. She sleeps next to me at night and wakes me up at exactly 7:30 AM each morning by nuzzling into my neck for a belly rub. She only barks when someone comes to the door, which I like a lot since I am a widow and live alone. I house broke her in less than a week…. and she loves to eat cooked chicken along with her kibbles. I feel so fortunate to have Rosie at this stage in my life… I couldn't ask for a more perfect dog.

I first volunteered with this organization in 2007 on a spay/neuter/wellness trip to Chihuahua, Mexico when I was veterinary student (I also adopted my dog Mi'ja on this trip). It was the most amazing experience and has motivated me to be the change that I want to see in the world. I have continued to volunteer with this organization both in Mexico and in California at wellness clinics, S/N clinics and starting a chihuahua/small dog transport program from central CA to Minneapolis. The work that I have done with this organization are some of my proudest moments and greatest achievements. I look forward to continuing to volunteer with them and being a part of all of the incredible work that they are doing!

They are helping people help their sweet animals. They are reaching out to low income, and under served parts of the community. So many animals have been saved from horrible lives or immediate deaths. They transport animals to other parts of the country where they will be appreciated and loved. They are keeping people safe from unvaccinated animals and helping with population control. I hope they can continue this amazing journey because we need animals for companionship but not everyone can afford their care. They are educating us on behalf of those without human words.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make them bigger so they could provide more help.

I worked with the doctors and nurses at a spay and neuter clinic in Puerto Penasco, Mexico where we helped 92 cats and dogs. They were very professional, friendly and spent time with the families that were concerned for their pets. They even helped a sea gull with a wing problem that someone brought in! They did this on only a few hours sleep after a clinic in a another town took longer than expected and they drove all through the night to get to us. It was a long, hot and dirty day, but they helped so many people that otherwise wouldn't of been able to have these procedures done for their pets!! They are the best!! Did I mention they also have a great sense of humor!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing, I wish there were more people out there like them!

I adopted my Sophie who was rescued from Mexico by these wonderful folks and brought to Santa Rosa. Drove all the way from LA once I saw her little face on Face Book. A happy ending for all involved.

CWOB has done so much good through hard work persistence, creativity, and most of all compassion. They have improved the lives of dogs in Mexico and the US. The work they do really creates change. Through spay/neuter programs and humane education and free veterinary clinics and rescues, they make life better for pets and their owners/guardians. I love their motto 'Rescue. Rehome. Repeat.'

I could go on for hours about this wonderful charity. I have had 2 dogs that I have adopted from them and they have been the sweetest most wonderful pets ever ! The group does so much good for people and animals alike. They have devoted their lives to serving those in the most need here in the states and in Mexico. I think Christi and Mancho are true Saints on earth !
