About Us

BVDR is a non-profit run by American and Canadian retirees. We help rescue Mexican dogs and find them adoptive families in the US and Canada. Through loving foster care, vet care and transportation services, BVDR dogs are given bright futures.

We also assist individuals that find street dogs and don’t know what to do with them. We are all volunteers working together to try to minimize the amount of homeless dogs in the area.
