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 passionate about dog rescue. This particular group is absolutely my favorite. Even though I live in Texas, I somehow got wind of their good deeds. I have been a huge fan ever since. I have made a few meager donations when possible, and I am confident they have used my money wisely. I proudly display their bumper sticker, and spread the word of their work as much as I can. If I lived in CA, I would volunteer and most likely adopt from them. I have only been to Mexico once and was so saddened by the poor conditions of the dogs, i have not returned. Compassion Without Borders is making a big difference that I care about, and they are changing the lives of people, dogs, and future generations of both in that country. So needed!!!
Compassion Without Borders serves one of the most underserved populations on the planet - street dogs in Mexico. I am amazed at what this small organization has accomplished with limited human and financial resources. CWOB literally saves lives and ends suffering. Whether it is picking up sick,starving dogs off dusty roads; teaching animal control staff how to humanely euthanize dogs; organizing and conducting spay & neuter clinics, CWOB's work is comprehensive, professional and successful.
I have volunteered many times for this organization. The passion of the founders, the ways they not only put a band aid on the problems but try to create change in a situation that is difficult to change is impressive. They address more than just the basics via spay, education and lobbying for legal changes. At the events I have volunteered for and attended i am constantly impressed by the stories of the people who had their lives forever changed by the rescue work they do and animals they brought into their lives. I am also very impressed by the fact they bring clothing, food and education to the people in the communities they serve. Its one of the first groups I really do see trying to change things for the better all around and truly taking in the entire issue to do so.
Compassion without Borders is a fantastic, incredibly hard working non-profit that has really been able to achieve some amazing things for the animals of Mexico on a shoestring budget with nearly 100% volunteer labor. Their goal of humane reform is being realized daily through a wide variety of projects and humane education programs.
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.
I volunteer in animal rescue, and have followed CWOB for years. They clearly do wonderful work, and they do it in especially needy locations.
I have never seen a NP do so much with every dollar donated and so responsibly. With every dollar donated, I feel that they match it 100x with their own blood, sweat, tears, and passion for our furry amigos south of the border that depend on us for a voice. I will never stop being in awe, utterly grateful, and humbly inspired but what CWOB has done, is doing, and will do.
I have volunteered at three of Compassion Without Borders Spay Camps. This organization is truly amazing. The spay and neuter hundreds of animals at these camps and everyone is dedicated and hard-working. The animals they help as the most needy you can imagine and they accomplish miracles with limited funds and resources. Every animal is treated as an individual, and with utmost compassion. All my experiences with CWOB have been positive, this group has really made changing the way animals are treated in Mexico their life's work, and its working! Please support them!
My wife and I run our own non-profit and have been working with CWOB to help adopt out the dogs they bring up from Mexico for 10 years now. The work CWOB does has been truly inspiring as we have seen them cause enormous changes to happen in multiple locations around Mexico. They have spayed or neutered thousands of dogs and caused several states to outlaw inhumane methods of euthanasia (Like electrocution) in their so-called "shelters" in Mexico. They have delivered tons and tons of medical supplies, trained local vets, and built a network of volunteers who help further the work down there... and they have done it all on a shoestring budget. In terms of what they have accomplished vs. the resources they have, these guys have truly worked miracles. CWOB deserves the support of everyone who cares about animal welfare!
