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.

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.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
