Paws Without Borders 

Hello! Thanks for checking us out. We are a 501-c3 non profit rescue and rehab service in Tucson, AZ

We rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome dogs from the streets of Mexico in cooperation with other animal rescue organizations in the United States, Mexico, and Canada.

Our shelter in Hermosillo, Sonora, Vidas Con Causa, currently has over 150 dogs. There, we provide medical care and a loving place for them to heal before coming to the US, then we foster and work on finding the perfect fit for adoption. You can also visit the available dogs at the rescue in Mexico. Our rescue partners spend a lot of time getting to know the dogs and we know MOST of their

perks and quirks!

We help special needs dogs, the amputees, the pregnant Pitties, the MexiMutts, those from small independent shelters who don't get much notice,  the cancer patients. We provide round-the-clock care until these dogs are ready for rehoming. We always need fosters! Get on our list!



Puppies stay indoors as much as possible to ensure their health and safety to screen for Parvo and more. Despite its challenges, the Sonoran Desert Dogs are a special, hearty blend. Adaptable survivors.

We are run by volunteers and depend on donations both private and corporate. A lot of our time is spent driving south of the border or cross country to pick up dogs in dire need, and transferring those rescued in MX up to the US.
If you would like to contribute time, transport, money or materials, please go to our DONATION page

to help us help them!

Thank You! Kim Kelly and the Team at Paws!
