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

so many ways...

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

Seeing all the dogs find forever homes and fostering and rehabilitating the most vulnerable.

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

kind, caring, generous with their time and money.

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

Save many more unwanted dogs.

I recently began fostering a dog through the Bill Foundation after my old dog passed away. I've found them to be responsive, supportive, and helpful throughout the process. The application for fostering is the same as for adoption and I found it to be pretty standard for what various rescue foundations in Los Angeles require. Everyone that I've worked with thus far has been helpful and friendly. I'm looking forward to continuing to volunteer with them and find forever homes for some very sweet dogs.

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

their prompt responsiveness to pairing me with a foster and meeting her needs as well as mine.

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

how great the little dog I'm fostering is, they did a great job of matching her to my household.

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

friendly and helpful.

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

r ensure that Los Angeles animal shelters are no kill and further the community outreach to spay/neuter pets.
