I was fortunate enough to come across the Bill Foundation 8 years ago and have the pleasure and insanity of my South and North Central Shelter rescues Woodrow & Wilson. Thank you for all the GREAT and AMAZING work that you do. My life has been so incredibly fulfilled since that day. Thank you for your commitment to those dogs that would likely not have another chance at a forever home without your good work. Andrea Serafin (Woodrow & Wilson's Forever Canine mom)

The Great!

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

I've had two amazing little guys who I would never have had the opportunity to have; had it not been for the Bill Foundation and their GREAT work and commitment.

Ways to make it better...

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

Give them more funding so they could save even more animals. Otherwise, they do an excellent job and I would not change anything.

More feedback...

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

The two rescues that I have had for 8-years: Woodrow & Wilson.

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

So kind, committed, friendly and truly look out for the dogs they save.

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

Save even more dogs in shelters.

Ways to make it better...

I won't change nothing.

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

Possibly the need for funding. But they do great work with what they have.

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

If you have anything extra that you can give...the Bill Foundation would be the organization to give to.

We have been the proud owners of "Gordon"since October, 2009. Gordon is an adult male that was certainly bound for death at the Los Angeles Shelter he was rescued from. Thanks to the volunteers of Bill Foundation, we were able to adopt a very balanced, well-trained dog, and he has been a wonderful addition to our family. Thank you Bill Foundation, for going out to shelters and picking up "unwantables a.k.a. adult dogs" as so many people just want puppies. Gordon is an amazingly sweet and fun dog, it would be tragic to see other dogs like him put to sleep in shelters.

My husband and I adopted Tessa almost 8 years ago through the Bill Foundation (they had named her Gemma and we renamed her after the incredible foster 'Mom' we received her from). She was 1 week post-cardiac surgery when we got her! Thanks to the Bill Foundation, Tessa had been rescued from an L.A. County shelter and had received an open-heart surgery to correct an AVM of her heart--a genetic malformation that most puppies would be allowed to die from. Tessa (a small mixed breed--probably Border Collie or Sheltie mixed with long hair Chihuahua--yes, she looks like a Gremlin!) was already active and running, jumping, playing inspite of her post-op instructions to take it easy. She had a lot of love to share but only on her terms--that's the Chihuahua in her! Not much has changed since then, although she's a little slower these days and she had a few teeth pulled because she wouldn't let anybody near enough to her mouth to be effective for so many years. She has been my right hand girl--first, in keeping our Sheltie from being too neurotically shy and then when we adopted another Chihuahua/Eskimo mix little guy almost 2 years ago, she took on the responsibility of watching over him and keeping me advised of his wild and reckless "Houdini" ways, probably saving him from himself more times than she would like to count! The Bill Foundation saved her life and she has saved his as much as we have(i.e. the little guy climbs treehouse ladders when nobody is looking!)!

The Great!

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

Their professional manner of matching the right families with the right dog. Not everybody would understand her medical history, all Tessa had been through and how it affected her behavior.

I adopted a dog from the Bill Foundation. I was especially struck by the fact that this particular dog had a very bad case of Mange and was taken out of a shelter and was receiving treatment at a local Vet.....all funded by Bill Foundation. I adopted him partially hairless. His name is Percy and he is now 6 years old and is my constant loving companion! The people who run Bill F. are the most passionate and tireless workers for the placement of dogs in their forever homes !!!!!!

9 years ago we adopted two dogs from the Bill Foundation: Buddy [a border collie mix] and Dora [an Akita/Shepherd mix]. The founder cares passionately about the dogs she fosters and takes the right steps to qualify potential new owners of these wonderful animals. We love them all!

We adopted 2 dogs and have fostered 3 for this incredible organization. One dog, Minnie, is a therapy dog who visits the Jewish Home for the Aging and does Skirball Hospice work with her owner as well. 2 of the 3 fosters have found forever homes and the 3rd foster is being rehabilitated and will find his forever home soon. We can't say enough good things about the Bill Foundation. Neil & Betsey Roberts

I adopted a dog from the Bill Foundation a year ago and my life hasn't been the same since. This little girl has brought so much joy to my life I did not know was even imaginable. The service the Bill Foundation provided me in the adoption process was wonderful and all the help they have provided me since the adoption has been just as great. If you are thinking about adopting they are great!

my own life with the adoption of a wonderful little dog named Fiona :)

Ways to make it better...

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

make no changes. I wish I could help them more financially or by offering my own time but I'm just not able to. I do know that I would and will adopt from them again.

The Bill Foundation is a great group. Their dogs are very WELL taken care of, get the best medical care, live in foster homes that know their dogs well (which makes adopting and making a match easy because they know their dogs), the people are friendly and helpful and their dogs are cute, sweet and loving. The people @ the Bill foundation do all they can to help you find the right match and they are very prompt to get the adoption process up and running so they can carefully place the dog in its forever home. They are also very careful about how and where their dogs are placed. They're main goal is to save lives, give them great care while they search for a home and do all they can to find the perfect home for each pet!

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

services I provide, volunteer work that I do, dogs I've helped them place, dogs Ive seen THEM place, many adoptions I've stopped by or dropped off dogs at, and many more. I've been working with and for this rescue for over 6yrs and they are amazing.

Ways to make it better...

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

Not change a thing. They are a great group that tries their best for each pet they rescue.

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

that they do right by every dog. They do all they can for each pet and I know that every animal is safe and in good hands with the Bill Foundation!

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

All amazing. Loving and loyal to this wonderful group.

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

Do a lot of wonderful things for the animals that need their help! The more money they have, the more lives they can save.

Ways to make it better...

more people stepped up to help them and applaud them for the wonderful work they do! I think I would like to see more people step up for them! They are great and shouldnt change!

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

the financial problems in the economy! for non profits to run, they need donors, funds, sponsors, etc. The more financial help they can get, the more lives they can help and save. Running a non profit is not an easy task.

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

times are hard, but if a group is great and do the right thing, people will help and support them. they just have to stay positive and know that their work is not taken for granted or unappreciated.

I have been to several public and private shelters before we adapted the first dog, and this Bill Foundation excelled in every possible way how their dogs will have a good home. We now have three dogs and they all came from Bill Foundation.

I went to an adoption event at Centinela Pet Supply sponsored by the Bill Foundation and found the most beautiful one year old basset. The Bill Foundation interviewed me, came to my home, etc to make sure we were a suitable family and Oliver has enriched our lives as we have helped his for over two years now. They are caring individuals, I contribute to their Foundation as often as possible as they do wonderful match-ups for needy animals and deserving families.
