Will you help?

Since August 2018, we have flown and bussed 3000+ dogs from Mexico’s Lake Chapala communities to their forever homes in the USA and Canada. Your donation to Bone Voyage Dog Rescue helps rescue dogs from danger, malnutrition, and abuse.

We have a variety of special ways you can donate:

  • As a gift to a dog-lover in your life
  • Help spay and neuter, vaccinate, or fly dogs to their forever homes
  • Sustain us throughout the year as a monthly donor
  • Donate to our general fund and we’ll use it where it’s needed most

Every donation helps, no matter how small.  Visit our DONATE page for details. 

ADOPTION FEES:  Bone Voyage Dog Rescue has new private adoption fees to help cover the cost of these private adoptions. Local lakeside adoptions cost $1500 to $2500 pesos. American private adoptions $500 USD and Canadian private adoptions $500 CAD. Our donations cover the cost of transporting dogs to shelters in the USA where they are adopted from there and/or transported from there to Canada. In addition to your adoption fee, donations to help cover transportation costs are always welcome.

Ever wonder why people in the States and Canada are adopting our Mexican dogs?


We always have dogs who need homes. Please help them have their forever home!

Fly them Home

People are waiting for our dogs up north. We need your help to get them there!


Dogs always need to be fostered. Are you able to offer a temporary, loving home?

I have supported and followed Bone Voyage Dog Rescue/Cari LeClair for quite some time now. I fell in love with one of the pups that they posted and reached out to see what I needed to do to get her here to Toronto. Within 3 weeks she was spayed, a flyer found and in my home ready to be loved. Cari immediately put me in touch with her foster mom and flyer. I can’t believe how everything was handled so smoothly and they made it such an easy process. Thank you Cari and all of the people that put all the effort into getting these dogs to good homes.

I have adopted 2 of my dogs from Bonevoyage as well as placed many dogs from them. First and foremost the dogs always come first. The dogs have always come to me when healthy and ready for adoption. It is well known, in Mexico, that if there is a dog in need Bonevoyage is the place to call for help. Cari and the volunteers will do whatever they can to save a dog in need. Bonevoyage is incredible. Cari is dedicated to improving the life of animals who are in need. They save dogs from horrible situations and rehabilitate them using their own personal money. No matter what it takes, the team from Bone Voyage goes above the rest to save animals that can’t save themselves. If everyone could give just $20, Cari can save even more lives. Support a great cause, save a rescue.

About two years ago I heard about this woman living in Puerto Vallarta. Her name was Cari LeClair and she would send dogs to the United States to be adopted. The more I heard about her the more impressed I was. Well those of us trying to do dog rescue in Lake Chapala were so lucky that Cari decided to relocate here about a year and a half ago. Bone Voyage has now sent about 600 dogs in 2019 to Seattle, Portland, Las Vegas and Phoenix. These dogs are all getting adopted into forever homes. In fact my husband and I have both flown dogs to Seattle at least 4-5 times which is about 30- 35 dogs ourselves. We have also spent time at the rescue organization in Tacoma, Wet Nose Foster Paws were almost all of Bone Voyage dogs go. It is an incredible doggy daycare and the dogs are so happy there until they get adopted and they’re adopted quickly. I’m very impressed with Bone Voyage and the dedication of all the volunteers. I’m so proud to be part of that organization.
