Volunteers

Join our Volunteer Community

We have the opportunity and privilege of working with volunteers both here in Mexico on a local level as well as volunteers in the States and Canada. There are many ways you can volunteer to help us with our cause.

For example if you live locally we need foster parents, transportation helpers, people to pick up food in San Diego and bring it down to Ensenada, grooming services, exercise and playmates for our pets.

We also need concerned volunteers who speak Spanish, to educate locals in our community and help them learn how to care for their animals. With more volunteers, we can bring our services to more remote communities. We also need people to take our animals to the vet, and so much more.

If you live in the States or Canada, we can use your help in raising awareness and fundraising for our organization, Friends of Baja Animals. Without the funds to run our non-profit we cannot do all we would like to help these poor animals who desperately need a new chance in life.

Please see our Fundraising page for ideas on how you can help. We sincerely appreciate you joining our family of volunteers so we can save as many animals in Mexico as possible.

We are in need of builders, handymen and women and others to help rebuild one of our local shelters who rescue 100’s of dogs a year.
