We are proud to be an all volunteer organization, and we operate on a 100% foster model. That means that, instead of operating a shelter, we provide support to the people who rescue dogs off the street and are able to foster them in their homes until they are adopted. Because of our volunteers, over 500 dogs have been saved from a desperate life on the streets. Whether leading a team, providing a temporary safe place for a dog to stay, volunteering here in La Paz or in the US, Canada and elsewhere, our volunteers all play a part in helping to save a dog’s life.
Escort a Pet Home
Someone flying from La Paz, Cabo, San Diego, or Los Angeles can escort an adopted dog to its new home on their flight. This volunteer is called a “Pet Escort.” There is no additional cost and Baja Dogs handles all of the logistics including checking in the dog at the airport and picking it up upon arrival.

Absolutely. Most of the “Behind the scenes” type roles are designed for volunteers who live in places besides La Paz. You can take the self-assessment and the first question is your location so you can see what roles will work based on that.
All of our dogs are in foster homes of the person who rescued them. But you can go to our calendar where we list dog walking and events where we need additional handlers and help.
