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 am a supporter of many charities but have rarely come across one as inspirational and dynamic as Compassion Without Borders.Their gutsy mission to save a starved and beaten working horse from his miserable existence on the streets of Mexico was truly remarkable ,In my experience it is outstanding to see such an unswerving determination to rachieve the seemingly undoable and just ask why not
I am a monthly donor and have been for several years. I have the highest admiration for Christ & Moncho Camblor. They and their volunteers work with the most neglected and unwanted animals in impoverished areas here in CA and south of the border. They give medical attention and find creative solutions to give these animals a second chance at a happy life.
I have had the honor for some years now both to donate to the outstanding organization Compassion Without Borders, and to help when Dr. Christi and her wonderful husband Moncho, bring 20 or so "Mexi-Mutts" from Mexico to Sonoma Humane, where they will be adopted and enter a new life of being loved and cared for. Christi is one of my heroes (Moncho, too). Her dedication, and yes--compassion--to help dogs is beyond outstanding. She has done SO much for dogs who would otherwise die from neglect that I feel privileged to know her, and to help in any way I can. I know there's only one Dr. Christi Camblor, but I wish we could clone her
This charity goes where most rescues do not, and everything is documented on Facebook with videos and photos. They do an amazing amount of good for some of the most needy of dogs.
Best non-profit organization by far! Co-Founders Christi & Moncho are by far the most caring people. They have taught so much compassion for all people and their pets, I will never be able to thank them enough!
Compassion Without Borders fulfills a needed place among all the nonprofits that try to save dogs which have been abandoned with out hope.
It is different because it helps dogs from Mexico which have absolutely no chance to survive.
in this respect I believe it also extends a friendly helping hand across our border.
In this way it promotes friendship with our good neighbors to the South.
It does so at a time when too much negativity is aimed at the people of Mexico.
I've been a volunteer for CWOB for a couple years now. They do endless compassionate things for animals. I love them!
This is the best non-profit organization I have ever known. They do such amazing things for people who can't afford medical care for their animals! Plus CWOB goes to Mexico to not only rescue animals, but they teach compassion and proper ways to care for animals. CWOB has changed laws in Mexico as to where instead of euthanizing by electrocution, they now do it humanely with the shot. I adopted one of he dogs and they rescued from Mexico and he is the sweetest dog and I am beyond grateful to have him. Thank you CWOB for everything you do! You are so inspirational!
I have been donating to CWOB for about 10 years. I am totally amazed how so much can be done for the animals in Mexico, Central Valley, Sonoma and Napa, just to name a few locations, with such limited funds. Dr. Christi, to me, is the "Mother Teresa" of animals. Her tireless efforts just amaze me. Please take a few moments to learn all that this organization does and you will also be amazed.
Compassion Without Borders is the "Mother Teresa" of Dog Rescues. I quit traveling to my beloved Mexico due to the sad and often horrific state of the animals that roam the streets throughout the cities and countryside. When I heard of this wonderful organization and their endless wonderful work they became my favorite rescue to support. I look forward to sponsoring a sweet pup every time they head south to help our neighbors who are so overwhelmed but working with CWB to develop more humane care for their animal population.
Me encantan todos los perros!
I used to own and operate a travel company specializing in travel to Mexico and Costa Rica. Over the years I found it more and more difficult to visit Mexico due to the sad deplorable condition of the animals living on the street.
I was so thrilled to discover Compassion Without Borders and their work traveling to areas and bringing such care and attention to animals in unfortunate situations.
I am a consistent donor to their organization due to the consistent care and devotion they bring to so many pets and their owners as well as so many abandoned animals in need.
Of all the non-profits I've supported over the years Compassion Without Borders is by far the most effective at truly making a difference. They make the most of every dollar and manage to do SO much for needy animals. Through their free spay/neuter and vet clinics, their Mexi-Mutt rescues, and their innovative ways of finding homes for animals without hope, they have saved countless lives. On every front they are creative at finding solutions. I'm a huge fan of CWOB.
I have been a monthly donor to CWOB for several years now and I've never regretted it. They work tirelessly to save animals not only here in our local communities but also throughout California and south of the border. My donation is directed to where the need is the greatest and they manage to save many lives on a shoestring. They cover so many bases; rescue/re-home, spay/neuter, and life-saving care, to name a few. This is by far the most effective animal rescue organization I've known and I'm proud to be a donor.
Compassion Without Borders is a model non-profit organization, serving animals in need and without an alternative hope. I volunteer my time and donate monthly to this amazing and inspiring group.
Great organization. Money goes to helping animals and when they ask for funds for a cause, they always send out an update afterwards.
I've been a supporter of this group for many years and have volunteered at a spay/neuter clinic in Juarez and adopted two meximutts from them. This is an amazing organization that does incredible work. I give them my highest recommendation.
This organization does such important work! Strays in Mexico have very little hope, and they are saving lives left and right. They can do so much with just a small donation!
An amazing grass-roots (and by that I mean a shoe-string budget!) organization that does remarkable things on both sides of the border. Monthly rescues from over-crowded Central Valley shelters, with small dogs air-lifted to Minneapolis where they are welcomes with open arms. Rescues of street dogs from Mexico,a spay-neuter/animal clinic established in Mexico, regular wellness clinics and now spay-neuter clinics in poor Santa Rosa neighborhoods...they are always there for the animals. Founders Dr. Christie and Moncho Camblor are wonder workers!
This organization is wonderful and they do wonderful work for animals on both sides of the California/Mexico border on a shoestring budget. founded by Dr. Christi Camblor and herHusband Moncho, CWOB provides rescues for dogs living under horrible conditions in Mexico and California...but doesn't stop there. they work with animal shelters to teach them how to do humane euthanasia and provide them with resources and support. In California, they rescue dogs from the Central Valley and transport them to other parts of the country where they can find homes, But best of all, they offer low to no cost vet clinics for under-served populations including the large Latino population of Sonoma County,,,these clinics are often the first time that some animals have ever seen a vet....low to no-cost services, education about caring for their pets, and compassion from a Spanish speaking vet...a wonderful combination
CWOB is without a question the most fabulous animal rescue org. that we have ever been involved with. We have adopted 2 Meximutts and are so in love with them. We support the efforts of Christi, Moncho and all the wonderful volunteers that lead the cause both here and over the border. The work they have done is phenomenal including stopping electrocution of the poor animals is Juarez, Mexico. No one has done more to stop animal cruelty, provide education, spay and neuter clinics +++ with such little resources. They need all the help they can get to do more in California and in Mexico. There is never enough to save them all.. And of course we want to!
I have adopted two dogs from Compassion Without Borders. Tey have an extensive medical protocol to assure tat each dog is fit and healthy. They are excellent at picking perfect temperaments.
I have been donating to Compassion without Borders for several years now and have participated in many of their drives to save Chihuahuas from Mexico and overcrowded shelters in the state. The work they do is inspiring and as an owner of two rescued Chihuahuas thank them for helping these wonderful companions find homes and loving families.
I have volunteered and provide some support and matching company donations.
I am so proud of this group who turn their donations directly toward helping animals in desperate need with sustainable programs that address the root cause of the suffering.
Take a look at CWOB...They warm the soul of cynics and supporters alike.
I support CWOB monthly with a small donation. If I could give them $100 a month, or more, I would! They are the epitome of a well-run, grass roots organization. The work they do for animals also does a lot for people, not just locally, but also in Mexico. Just the work they do to help implement humane euthansia at shelters in Mexico justifies the high rating I give them. The methods used in Mexico are awful, and I'm sure they are awful for the humans as well. I love that CWB has clinics locally for low-income communities. This reduces the numbers of dogs that will end up as strays or surrendered to shelters. A person who loves their animal, but cannot afford care, must be so relieved and happy to get help from CWB to keep their animal healthy. It surely means the world to them and that is seen by the long lines of people and animals waiting to be seen at their FREE clinics. I can't say enough about CWB, every email I get from them is POSITIVE. It's not necessary to horrify people to get them to donate. I love donating to CWB because I see the positive outcomes. I'm sure there are animals they cannot help, and have to leave behind, but they process that pain and keep on going! Another wonderful thing they do, here in California, is take dogs from high-kill shelters and transfer them to shelters where they will get adopted - even flying them to out-of-state shelters! I think CWB is pretty much the #1 small, grass-roots, non-profit I could possibly support. I hope someday, when I can have my own dog, I'll be able to adopt a Meximutt from CWB. I just love what they do so much!
Compassion without Borders is like David and Goliath. They may be small but they are making an impact in our local community. They reach out to those underserved populations and offering immunizations, education, spay and neuter and more. CWOB also has partnered with a shelter in the Central Valley of California, rescuing many dogs that are on the euthanasia list. Those dogs are then flown to Minnesota where they are eagerly adopted. CWOB does not limit its impact just on California but also rescues dogs from Mexico that have never known the love and care of a family. These dogs are fondly called Meximutts. The Sonoma Humane Society then partners with CWOB to get all these pooches adopted.
I started volunteering with CWOB as a veterinary student over 8 years ago and haven't looked back in my support of them since!! The founders of CWOB and the work that they do is beyond incredible in the difference they are making - not only in the animals' lives but in their people companion lives as well. I am a better person, veterinarian and pet guardian because of this incredible group of people!!
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!
Compassion Without Borders is an amazing organization! They not only rescue animals they also educate many people regarding pet care and ownership. They are so compassionate to all!
CWOB is an incredible organization. Powered by the vision of its two co-founders (who receive negligible monetary compensation for their close-to-40-hour work weeks!), they go where the need is, always expanding to help more animals. From spay/neuter and wellness clinics for pets of underserved populations to rescues from areas with many, many unwanted animals, CWOB is there. Having worked in the arena of rescue, wellness and humane education for many years and on a very limited budget, CWOB knows how to run programs efficiently and cost-effectively while maintaining a very high quality.
The people involved in this organization put the cause absolutely first. They are tireless in their efforts to not only save lives, but also improve the lives of animals into the future by educating, and building clinics. To me, this is what a charity should do.
Compassion Without Borders and Dr. Christi are an amazing group of rescuers. She is tireless with helping as many animals as possible. Beside working at the Humane Society two days a week now (was working full time) she rescues dogs/puppies in the Central Valley & also in Mexico. I feel they go above & beyond to care for animals on a daily basis.
Best non profit IN THE WORLD!!!
Saving the world one animal at a time.
CWOB is one of my most-beloved nonprofits. CWOB passionately and tirelessly cares for animals and the people who love them....and in the communities who are woefully underserved. CWOB invites us to partner with them, in whatever way we can, to truly make the world a better, more compassionate, and deeply loving place.
Amazing people dedicated to helping the animals and the people that love them by providing care, spaying and neutering, education and love in areas where it is not available. This organization makes a difference in so many lives where ever it is needed. I have witnessed this difference and will continue to support the great work they do.
The selfless work that is done by this group is incredible. I work with one of the rescues that teams up with CWOB to send chis to Minnesota every month. These dogs would otherwise not have a chance in our valley since they are the second most euthanized breed. The people at CWOB restore my faith in humanity!
In my limited time of following Compassion Without Borders I've read and seen amazing deeds that have been preformed by the dedicated people of this organization. With that said they can only do this if we do are part and provide the funding that is so desperately needed for these deserving animals.
I first learned about Compassion Without Borders when I was trying to start a similar program in my area. Since then, I have stayed involved and engaged with this organization. After being in the field for more than 15 years, I can say that Compassion Without Borders does more than with less... and keeps growing. They stick by their mission and I am so proud to be affiliated with them. They are truly making a difference on both sides of the border, and making a positive impact on every dog they touch.
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
CWOB is the bonb! I am a board member, volunteer, supporter, and very happy recipient of one of the first dogs rescued from Mexico City. This group embodies the ideal of compassion not just to the animals but to the people involved also. It just make me smile from ear to ear everytime I am with this wonderful group of people. CWOB has never met an animal or a person who is not a friend and who would not be helped without a moment's hesitation. Even my dog has contributed to the cause.
Compassion without Borders is a truly wonderful charity. The work undertaken to rescue so many dogs who otherwise would either die or have miserable lives cannot be underestimated. I live in England but support this charity by donation whenever I can. To rescue dogs and save unwanted litters by the neutering programmes is very important. Thankfully the staff and volunteers are so dedicated that I know good people are there to care and act for the good of many unfortunate animals. Keep up the good work!!!
I have been involved in dog/cat rescue efforts for over 20 years. My efforts have been with the SF SPCA, Redwood Coast Humane, Sonoma Humane, Bearded Collie Rescue, Compassion Without Borders, and many more organizations. NEVER have I seen more positive results for the dogs than through CWB. This group goes where I wish I could, to do what I wish I could, for dogs who have absolutely no chance of living a healthy, well loved life. I am deeply grateful for Christi, Moncho, and their group of volunteers. CWB makes a difference in reducing suffering of innocent animals, and their education of the underserved public makes a difference for all.
I volunteer with CWOB in the wellness clinics and spay/neuter clinics. It is great to help so many animals and get the word out for fixing animals. It has been very rewarding for me. Janet
Compassion Without Borders is a wonderful organization that truly helps those in need. Mostly volunteer run the amount this non-profit is able to accomplish is simply amazing. Chaging the lives of animals that would otherwise go without veterinary medical treatment due to economical and cultural barriers. Taking the time to focus on those who simply don't have the resources to care for their beloved pets. Amazing work, amazing organization serving nearly 100 animals in Sonoma County alone each month through their free wellness clinics for underserved communities. In my book they get a gold medal and 5 stars. The passion and willingness to step out of bounds and help at any cost. Thats what lifes about, loving, helping and giving.
There are people in life that just make you thankful they exist. I feel this exact way about the fabulous couple who founded and started Compassion Without Borders from the ground up. I could not praise them and their organization high enough. The programs and services they offer are mind blowing. How can two people be so amazingly wonderful? They are nearly 100% volunteer based. I myself included have volunteered at many free wellness clinics. They truly care about each and every animal they come into contact with, Determined to make a difference. They do so much with so little. This organization is truly a blessing. The animals are so lucky. I am so lucky, each time I volunteer I am reminded of the importance of their existence.
I am happy to support Compassion Without Borders in their work rescuing animals. I have a trusted friend who recommended them to me, and I have never been disappointed in their work with low-income communities in Mexico and California, and with dogs in distress.
I have been volunteering with Compassion Without Borders for almost a year now. The number of animals lives who have been touched by this wonderful organization is extremely impressive! Each CWOB team member has a heart of gold. This non-profit is truly making a difference to save & improve the lives of animals in need. They go where no one else is going and save the animals that need the most help. They provide wellness to animals to keep them in their existing homes. They provide spay/neuter efforts to help reduce overpopulation and keep animals well. They provide both of these services here in Northern California & in Mexico. They also travel down to Fresno once a month to rescue dogs from high-kill, overcrowded shelters bringing some back to Northern California and others to MN to find homes. Their results are staggering!! I really love volunteering with this organization! Christi & Moncho are truly amazing people!
I first met Dr. Christi Camblor while volunteering for another organization - her spirit, compassion and energy is absolutely inspiring. When I became a volunteer with CWOB, I was amazed by the work her and her husband, Moncho do to help animals. From promoting education about wellness, training equipment (such as a sensation harness compared to prong collars, etc.), & spay/neuter importance, to traveling to Central Valley to rescue Chihuahuas, to traveling to Mexico to educate and save animals, to holding free spay/neuter & wellness clinics locally, CWOB is working to keep companion animals out of the shelters and into loving homes. They are really making a difference, one animal and one person at a time. They naturally know how to reach people and help them to help animals, because they are truly genuinely good human beings. They both come from the heart, they both come from a place of working tirelessly to ensure they are doing all that they can to help.
Dr Christi and team are incredible. They do local clinics for animals including spa and neuter and chipping as well as trips to the California central valley rescuing hundreds of pups that are flown out to new forever homes or taken to animal shelters who have waiting adopters. They also go to Mexico and do the same. CWOB is a great nonprofit! You can visit them at CWOB.org. Why go to Mexico: Dr Christi sums it up by saying: Their suffering knows no borders and neither does our compassion. It’s as simple as that.
this is a great organization! these people have heats of gold! free supplies every month at each of their clinics. i have volunteered for five of these clinics, so far. i know first hand how much is being provided to the animals by compassion without borders. and this is only one of the many helpful services offered to the underserved pet owners of sonoma and napa counties.
I learned about this organization this year and I am at awe of the caring nature by their staff! Not only do they help animals in need they also contribute to the communities around them.
I have been a supporter of Christi's for many years and plan on many more. The main reason why is that they don't put bandaids on a problem, but get to the root cause and work to correct the underlying issue to bring lasting change. They have a focus on education and changing attitudes in underserved communities, have vision, and evolve to meet the needs of these communities. Their rescue work continues to save countless animals from untold suffering and give them a chance at a new life. They see many horrific situations in their work, but continue to forge on with hope and a smile and an eye on how they can affect necessary change.
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 volunteer for many years to compassion without borders
The work they do is so desperately needed
They do really make a difference for so many animal in need
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.
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.
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.
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!
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 !
I live in Mexico and although they operate primarily in the US. They have provided free spay and neuter clinics here in Puerto Penasco. The unwanted pet problems in Mexico is horrifying. Thank God for them and their organization.
I found Christi and Compassion Without Borders at the Bay Area Pet Fair and Adoptathon several years ago. I was so impressed by their mission and their ability to accomplish it with a 100 percent volunteer run organization. Every penny donated goes directly to help the animals. I became a supporter and a mouthpiece for them immediately and then recently started volunteering at vaccination clinics and fundraisers. Christi and her group are tireless advocates for underserved populations of both humans and pets. They make a real and lasting positive difference in the lives of all they serve. It's such a satisfying feeling to walk away from a day of volunteering with CWOB and KNOW I have contributed directly to particular animals and their guardians. Really a good feeling to be able to help
I met Moncho and Christi since their first rescue in mexico and they are always trying not just to save or rescue. The impact of education they had provided to hundreds of mexicans about animals is wonderful.
In the name of the hundred of rescued animals thanks for your commitment and inconditional love!
This organization does so much not only for animals here in California but also in Mexico. Thank you for caring for those animals across the border who many times suffer horrendous acts due to lack of education. This organization rocks!!
I volunteer with this organization, and i am so glad that I did . I got to meet the most compassionate people. They help a lot of animals, and also low income families that can't afford going to the vet. This is a great organization and I feel so lucky to know that I help them spread the compassion.
This group does a lot of wonderful work. I have been following their group for years. They help a lot of animals in Mexico and Northern/Central California.
I found out about CWOB when I got to know Christi better and I am so glad that I did. This is a wonderful organization and idea, which is put into action by even more wonderful people. I cannot think of anyone who is better suited to run an organization like this! They truly care for every animal that comes in and want what is best for them in the future. They are excellent at choosing even tempered dogs that will fit in lovely with families of all kinds. I can't say enough about this organization and all they do for these underprivileged animals, but I wanted to share with everyone how highly I think of them. Nobody else could pull off what CWOB does and in the time period in which they accomplish all that they do.
I have adopted out 200 dogs that Compassion Without Borders selected to come to California. They do an excellent job in selecting candidates that will be perfect family pets, and the medical care they provide is fabulous.
We've been donors, volunteers and adopters for CWOB. They put their hearts into what they do. They show and teach compassion. They help alleviate suffering. Our Meximutt that we adopted from them was starving in the streets of Juarez, and now she's a cherished member of our family. They are a grassroots organization that I will continue to support.
