4 years ago, we were healed enough from the loss of our previous dog to finally look for another one. The Bill Foundation has a website with photos and profiles of each dog. We saw Hudson there, looking very sharp in his red harness. The profile turned out to be extremely accurate. Hudson was described as lovable once you got to know him, possessive of his toys, and needing special care at first. He had been abandoned in a backyard after the owners moved away. We went in to get Hudson during an Open House and happened to find Ruby there too. She is a friendly doxie who stuck her paws through the bars to say hello. We couldn't resist her, so we took both of them. They were healthy, loving, adaptable, friendly characters who have enhanced our lives. The Bill Foundation is committed to finding good safe homes and we didn't mind the home visit before the adoption was final. They recommended crating which we don't believe in, but things quickly worked out very well. Thanks for our wonderful family members!

We adopted Taryn 8 years ago. We adopted Chester 5 years ago. They are the best of friends and love each other. They continue to bring unending joy to me, my husband and our chuildren. Working with the Bill Foundation has only been a positive experience. They were insturmnetal in helping us settle the dogs in our home. We even fostered a dog for them, Bootsie (who we called Bernie). We would have adopted him too, but he was too aggressive for Taryn, who getting on in age. The profiles on their dogs are accurate and truthful. The volunteers are loving and really advocate for successful matches. The owners were very helpful when we needed some guidance 8 years ago. I have recommended teh BIll Foundation to countless people. They are the only foundation I would go to if I ever wanted to adopt again.

Taryn had been abused and neglected. She need much love and time in the beginning. The BIll Fouundation was instrumental in providing the support we needed to get her settled.

We adopted our dog through the Bill Foundation 8 years ago and have been tremendously impressed by the work they do matching rescued dogs with loving homes. They also follow up on a regular basis and make sure the dog has a microchip and an ID that would notify the Bill Foundation if the dog was lost. We believe they are a tremendous organization and are happy to make ongoing donations to support them and recommend that others do as well.

We adopted our precious cocker spaniels Buddy (Parker) and Phoebe (Evelyn) 5 yrs ago (8/05)from the Bill Foundation. They were heaven sent after we lost our beloved Freckles to cancer. Jo Forman and all we worked with at BF are the best! They hard to make sure that the dogs are placed in the right homes~~the first time~~so that there is less trauma/stress for the dogs and less expense in the long run. The adoption process from beginning to end was done professionally, with compassion and always with the best interests of the dogs. Our rescues came w/some heath issues which BF took care of prior to turning them over & we handled some necessary surgeries later. Today they are healthy, happy, well-adjusted dogs who have welcomed a third rescued cocker spaniel mix, Minnie, into our home. We recommend BF to our many animal-loving friends & acquaintances.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Not only in their care and placement of 2 dogs in our home, but how BF handled some difficult situations in a compassionate manner. BF truly cares about the animals and go above and beyond, even sacrificing their personal resources/time to save one.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more funding/resources because BF could do so much more.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Their commitment and compassion

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Capable and had the best interest of the dogs at heart.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Save so many, many more animals

Ways to make it better...

Experience could not have been better.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Funding!! They need more...so they can do more!

One thing I'd also say is that...

I would definitely contact them in the future and recommend their services to all.

Three years ago I adopted my wonderful dog, "Franklin" from the Bill Foundation. I have worked with other animal rescue groups to adopt other dogs over the years. I found the BF to be the most professional organization and one that really cared about protecting the dogs. Their screening process is top notch and they asked me to bring my other dog to meet Franklin before they would consider his placement with me. They then brought him for a home visit as well and checked out my home to make sure it was suitable for him. They are the BEST and I thank them every day for "Franklin"

They are also very careful to make sure your adoption is a safe one in terms of the dog's behavior and health condition. This is very important and appreciated. I love that every dollar I donate goes to the dogs and not to over head.

We have adopted two dogs from the Bill Foundation. Both dogs are beloved members of our family. Our first dog, Serena, is really a wonderful story about how much The Bill Foundation does. They rescued Serena from a pound ... she was skin and bones and quite miserable when we met her. This dog had been abused and abandoned, and it was clear all she wanted was to love and be loved. She has filled our lives with love and she is a very special and beautiful dog. Our second dog, Marvin, was sent to the pound when his owner was deported ... Marvin is a dachshund ... and everyone who meets him falls in love with his big sad eyes and his sweet demeanor. We are extremely grateful to the Bill Foundation for the work they do. They save dogs...and then they find the perfect homes for them.

I rescued my dog Fred from the Bill Foundation. He is the love of my life and I am so proud when someone asks what type of dog he is because I can tell them I don't know but he is a rescue and I adopted him from the Bill Foundation. I then sing the praises of the good work they do and all the amazing animals that need to be rescued. They operate out of love and the best interest for each animal. Thank you Bill Foundation.

We adopted our terrier mix from the Bill Foundation a little over 2 years ago.. They were very professional and easy to deal with. They did put us through a rigorous screening process, but they wanted to make sure their dogs were going to good homes. My heart goes out to all the dogs (and cats) that lose their homes in southern California and we are SO grateful for organizations like the Bill Foundation that helps these poor animals find loving, forever homes. We have strongly recommended them to our friends who are looking to adopt.

The Bill Foundation to me is one of the most important causes to donate to. Jo Forman does an incredible job of partnering up the perfect dog with a caring guardian...she saved my life after I lost my last dog, by letting me adopt the sweetest Rottweiler on earth, Bear. Can't thank her enough for her tireless efforts to rescue dogs
