Bone Voyage Dog Rescue is a four-year old charity located on the shores of beautiful Lake Chapala (aka ‘Lakeside’) here in Jalisco, Mexico. We are a volunteer-based organization which is rapidly growing to meet the needs of stray and abandoned dogs deserving a family and a forever home. We’ve been organizing ourselves into teams, working together to create the best processes that lead to success for the dogs and efficiency for our volunteers. Our volunteers reside far and wide from Lakeside to Las Vegas, Seattle to Vancouver, and many other cities throughout North America.
On Going Volunteers
There are many different ways to volunteer! Bone Voyage is made up of volunteer teams, each of which plays a critical role in saving Lucky Dogs and Cats. Depending on the particular volunteer role, the time commitment can be as little as an hour a month or as much time as you have to give! If you have any questions, please contact us.
Assist in finding homes for Bone Voyage dogs by: marketing available dogs for adoption, reviewing applications, contacting landlord /vet offices, conducting phone screens, setting up home visits and completing adoption paperwork or simply taking photos or videos and writing bios.
Assist in finding pre-approved adopters a great match for their family. Suggest dogs throughout the week and help answer questions for adopters already through the pre-approval process.
Help us review our dog contracts with our soon-to-be adopters! We are looking for a few detail-oriented, customer service focused volunteers to walk Bone Voyage adopters through their contract as well as their animal’s medical records prior to adopting.
