Will You Be Flying on Vacation in the near future?

Are you or someone you know planning a vacation to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico? Would you be returning through Vancouver, Edmonton, or Calgary.  Contact NOBARS today and you can help an animal in need while on vacation. We are always on the lookout for amazing people just like yourself to escort animals on your trip home to Canada so they can be matched and united with their forever families.

NOBARS will organize all the paperwork required by Canadian Customs for the dog and meet you at the airport on both ends so that all you need to do it sit back, relax, and enjoy the inflight movie.

We also are in need of travelers that have some space in their bags on the way to Puerto Vallarta that can help take charitable donations or crates with them for our volunteers and animals in Mexico while they wait for their turn to find the pawfect family.

Will you be driving?

How About Driving?

Once our adoptable animals reach Canada there are still lots of ways you can get involved and help to be part of the journey to a forever home.

Would you like to be part of airport pickups? Transporting animals to their forever homes? We are also in need of people all across Alberta that can help ensure the homes the animals are placed in are the best possible match for their individual needs by preforming home checks and adoption interviews.

Fundraising is also an important and ongoing part of what we do! We are always looking for upbeat and compassionate people to represent NOBARS at events and help spread the word.

Do you have a skill you would like to offer No Borders Animal Rescue Society that we haven’t mentioned here? We would love to hear from you! Email No Borders Animal Rescue Society today and let us know how you would like to help.



Learn about our Fostering

Foster homes are at the center of what we do. We are 100% foster home based, both in Mexico and Canada. This is a huge benefit to the animal as they transition from life before rescue and into their forever homes.

The wonderful fosters we have offer a safe haven as well as some of the first experiences of love, warmth and trust. We match all fosters and animal based on what would create the most rewarding experience!

Fostering is an emotionally rewarding experience that you can be a part of! If you have extra love to give and a passion for making a difference, please consider being a foster home for a homeless animal today!

Click here to fill out a request and we will email you the foster form for both Canada and Puerto Vallarta Mexico.

We are also in need of volunteers for the following positions:

Foster Facilitators who help to determine if foster home applicants can provide a suitable and compassionate environment. This involves reviewing and contacting applicants, as well as arranging for the final home check before dogs are placed in foster upon arriving to Canada.

Foster Coordinators help to contact and arrange foster homes that have been approved for incoming animals. In addition, once an animal has been placed in foster care this position contacts to check in on both dog and household to see how the placement is going. These duties are preformed entirely from home and are best suited to someone who is readily available by email and phone.
