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.

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.

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 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.
