I've been a supporter of this org for a number of years now and will continue to support them. The org seems to be run efficiently, they get a lot of deeply needed work done and seem very committed to continuing their work. I'm also a lucky companion to two super sweet dogs that I adopted through CWOB. Anytime I learn of anyone who is looking for a dog to add to their family I always recommend that they check with CWOB to learn when their next rescue trip will take place. Thanks CWOB, keep up the wonderful work.

I have followed this organization's work for several years now, donated when able and been in awe at the work they do. The work they do both sides of the border, but particularly in Mexico whereit is so badly needed is unparalleled; they have saved so many lives and helped many people keep and care for their pets. The spay and neuter is a much needed programme which will contribute to control the animal over population in Mexico. I think their education programme will make a difference in the cultural attitude towards animals, preventing the cruelty and indifference so prevalent in Mexico.

I've been a donor and have volunteered with CWOB. I can't think of a more dedicated group of people, that go above and beyond for animals in CA and Central America. They help low income families, the homeless and animals that would suffer on the streets. They do life saving work. I adore this organization and their generous spirit!

As a donor and volunteer, I can't begin to express my love and admiration that I have for this grass roots (almost solely) volunteer run nonprofit. They provide essential medical care for people that are underserved, but want the best for their pets. As if the FREE clinics are not enough, they also rescue animals at high kill shelters and even travel to Mexico offering veterinary services.
Knowing several people involved with this organization, I can honesty say they are some of the kindest people I've ever met! They give countless hours to making the world a better place for both animals & people.

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

Nothing!

Compassion Without Borders could also be called Compassion Without Limits! This grassroots organization has made free/low cost veterinary care available to those who need it most, thus changing the lives of countless animals and the people who love them. Their partnerships with other animal welfare organizations has saved the lives of thousands of animals. I have the highest regard for CWOB !~ Thank you!!!

This is an amazing organization, everything a frequent contributor to animal rescue organizations and other not-for-profits looks for when we think about where and how to contribute financially and in other ways to people/orgs doing great work. The organization is very focused with a clear mission of helping animals and helping people who love them but might not always have the resources and opportunities to give them the health care they need. It is creative: Who else would have thought of rescuing Chihuahuas in California, where they are commonplace and sadly often unwanted, and partnering with another rescue group in Minnesota, where they are relatively rare and people adopt and LOVE them! Its activities are well-planned, well-run and effective. The principals are extremely passionate, dedicated and competent. I wish every group I gave money used it as wisely as this one.

I live in Canada and I rescued two dogs from a over crowded shelter in California. I did this because of this organization and Maya and Lenard still fill our house with love to this day!

I have followed this charity for several years now and am amazed at the depth and breadth of their work. In particular, I like the "dog lifts" and also their work with charities in Eastern Europe.

Compassion Without Borders provides support for a variety of animal groups that would get help no where else.

I love everything about this organization. I first heard about Christi and Moncho and their work over 10 years ago when I adopted one of their rescues. He was an incredible friend to me for over 8 years and I am forever grateful to CWOB for bringing him into my life. Over the years I have followed their mission and their work, and they truly represent all that is good. I share their passion for animals and am happy to have donated (and will continue to donate) over the years to support their work in bringing healthcare to animals whose parents might not otherwise be able to afford care, humane euthanasia outreach and education, their spay and neuter project, and giving many sweet animals a chance at new and happy lives. Thank you Christi, Moncho and everyone at CWOB for all that you do!
