Our Mission

Volunteers in Defense of Animals is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization who was founded in 2015 by a group of passionate volunteers who have been working for years to end the mistreatment and  suffering of all animals. Our mission is to protect and help dogs and cats from homelessness, neglect, abuse, cruelty, and abandonment. We provide medical care, shelter, food, and most importantly love for homeless animals and sponsor spay and neuter campaigns for communities in need in the US as well as in Mexico. We also assist other rescues in numerous cities of Mexico and provide animal welfare services for homeless dogs and cats in the streets of Mexico. 
Our Vision is to see the end of mistreatment and exploitation of animals and see them in perfect, forever loving homes. 


The question is not “Can they reason?” nor, “Can they talk?” but “Can they suffer?”
