Will you help?

We have saved over 500 dogs since August of 2018.

We’ve helped dogs fly north to their new homes.

However, Covid 19 has put a huge damper on our Bonevoyage rescue efforts. We are unable to send our dogs north to the rescues we work with, so are focusing our efforts on trying to find local adopters. We have had some success but now that many of our part time residents have found their way home, we are pretty desperate.

The dogs in need of help don’t stop coming but we are having to put a stop to how many we can take. We have had quite a few fosters volunteer to help us out but it’s tough as we are unable to give them an end date. Cari has personally taken in 12 dogs and it’s very difficult to give them the proper training they need. We hate to say no but at this point, that is our only choice so there will be many dogs in need of care that aren’t going to get it.

This is a very sad situation in so many ways. The poor pups will suffer as a result 🙁

We hope that soon things will get back to normal but in the interim we really do have to step back and focus on the dogs in our care now.


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?

Happy Tails!

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.
