Use Your Expertise to Save Dogs
Are you passionate about helping dogs in need and making a positive difference in the world? Consider applying to be a member of the online advisory board of Bone Voyage Dog Rescue. Though we’re a dog rescue and shelter in Ajijic, Mexico that flies dogs to adopters in the US and Canada, our advisory board members can live anywhere in the world and be of any nationality. Our on-site volunteers in Ajijic, Mexico are retired expats from all over the world.
We are expanding our advisory board and are developing a pool of potential candidates who meet our strategic needs at this time. We encourage anyone who is interested to contact our Executive Director, Annette Thompson, at Annette@BoneVoyageDogRescue.com or chat with her on WhatsApp at (52) 332-971-8011.

As a non-profit organization rescuing and finding loving families for 1000+ dogs each year, Bone Voyage Dog Rescue relies on the support of dedicated volunteers to achieve our mission. We receive no government funding. The advisory board plays a critical role in providing guidance and expertise to help us achieve our goals. An advisory board is not the legal governing body of the organization, so you would not carry the same legal responsibilities and fiduciary duties as the board of directors.
We don’t want to take advantage of our advisory board members. Instead, we need their advice, guidance and encouragement and can have our retired volunteers and our employees implement their ideas when needed.
Besides saving the lives of 1000+ homeless dogs and puppies each year, here are 7 more reasons to serve on an advisory board:
