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 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.

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!

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.

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!
