This is a FANTASTIC organization - for dogs and for their prospective new people! I knew very little about dogs when I first decided I wanted to adopt. Bill Foundation staff members spent time telling me about things I should think about, look for, and know. They told me how they screen new families (e.g., home visits, etc.) and how their operation works to match dogs with people. They also indicated that I should feel free to utilize them for information even if I went with another rescue. I was incredibly impressed with the selfless help I received from the Bill Foundation and with their solid commitment to placing dogs with the most compatible people. (Since that time, I have been to more than one of their dog adoptions and viewed their web site & available dog listings on multitudinous occasions.) They make every effort to ensure that their rescues have the least possible amount of additional trauma. I am so certain of them that I have stipulated in my will that, should my first choice be unavailable upon my death, the Bill Foundation should take custody of and place my dogs. I have also left the Foundation a portion of whatever funds I may have when I die. Whatever amount that may be, it will in no way reimburse them for the immense expenditure of time, effort, and materials that they lovingly provide to the animal and human public. In my opinion, the Bill Foundation should be the model on which all animal rescues operate.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my attempts to adopt a dog (see above review) and in my attendance at various dog adoptions simple as a "Looky Lou"!!
