What is Dog Rescue without Borders?

Dog Rescue without Borders is a non-profit dog rescue that teamwork’s with other local groups in Tijuana, Mexico dedicated to saving homeless & abandoned dogs from the street or high-kill shelters in the Tijuana area and to find them permanent and loving homes in Mexico and the United States.

Where can I see DRWB dogs?

Since we do not have a shelter, we can’t “send” you to a specific location to look at a particular dog.  We can email you photos.  The first step is to fill out an adoption application.  Once you fill out your application, we will get back to you as soon as possible to set up a meeting with the dog you are interested in.

When was DRWB founded?

Dog Rescue without Borders was founded in August 2011 by Michela Arredondo, Elsa Peralta, and Cynthia Espana Palacio; in San Diego, California and Tijuana, Mexico.

Where do your dogs come from?

We rescue homeless & abandoned dogs from the streets or high-kill shelters in the Tijuana, Mexico area where the number of stray and abused dogs is countless.

How many people are involved in DRWB?

We have a core group of dedicated volunteers who devote a substantial portion of their personal lives, outside of their day jobs and families, to the dogs.  You can be part of the Dog Rescue without Borders family and save some dogs by volunteering.  Email us at info@dogrescuewithborders.com

What are DRWB’s immediate and long-term goals?

In the short-term we are looking to find a location in order to be able to rescue more dogs and a place where volunteers can come together, meet, and interact. In the long-term, we plan to build a shelter to rescue as many dogs as possible.
