We Love Our Volunteers

There are many different ways to volunteer

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

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!
