Our dog Sophie has been such a wonderful addition to our home. When the kids are gone and the last dog has died you think you are finally free and I was reluctant to adopt again. she is queen of the house and we are willing servants. If she wants the car windows down in the rain and wind what is a little water? i am so grateful to Compassion Without Borders for bringing us together. Brenda Conkling

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 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 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 !

In 2006, I was looking for a special dog to call my own. A co-worker told me about a rescue organization that got most of their dogs from CWOB. After reading the Mission Statement of CWOB, I knew this is where my special dog would come from. I think back to the day that I got Zoey and brought her home. When I first saw her and she gave me a “please take me home with you” look, I fell in love. How could I resist? She is the sweetest, and most grateful little critter. Since that day, I have gotten to know Christi Payne and Juan Ramon Camblor, the founders of CWOB. Their hard work, compassion and commitment to saving animals on a volunteer basis is totally amazing. I am proud and grateful to say that I have connected with this organization.
