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.

If I had to pick a NPO, this will be it! They provide, help, medical care, love, donate medicine, shelter, their time, they take difficult cases and help them, but they also teach communities to help themselves and their pets.
I know that if I donate to Compassion without borders, the help will reach the needy, and I know it because it shows. Keep the wonderful work CWOB!!!

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

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

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.

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.

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 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 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.

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 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.

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.
