In addition to rescuing pit bulls, senior dogs, and other dogs in need, Shadow's Fund has also initiated a program to ensure that puppies are properly socialized and trained. Another program initiated by them is to transport dogs from Southern CA, which has a high density of pit bulls in the shelters to the Pacific North-West, where the shelters do not have enough pit bulls to meet demand. It is so satisfying to see pictures of dogs transported from Southern CA to Washington, meeting their forever family for the first time.

I have adopted two pit bulls from Shadow's Fund. Jill and Cody spent the time necessary to make sure my dogs were a good fit for me and that I was a good fit for them. My dogs, Charlee and Chaplin are part of my family, thanks to Shadow's Fund.

Finally, I like Shadow's Fund so much, I volunteer for them. The amount of work they do each day, including weekends, is both inspiring and tiring.

Shadow's Fund is a great nonprofit and Jill and Cody deserve recognition for how hard they work and the effectiveness of their programs.

My daughter & I have been volunteering for almost a year now. I can't get enough of these dogs! These are the most well taken care of and loved dogs that don't have permanent homes that I've ever known. Jill & Cody have done and are still doing an amazing job at caring for the needs of these dogs and even the dogs in our local shelters. I am so lucky to be part of this dog pack!

Jill and Cody are 2 of the most caring, compassionate souls I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. They work tirelessly to give these dogs a wonderful life while they are waiting for their forever home, and if for some reason they never find their match, they are loved on and cared for until their time comes by some of the most caring people I've met. The volunteers at Shadow"s fund are amazing! Most of them have ended up adopting a dog from the sanctuary- myself included! Jill and Cody sacrifice so much of themselves for the ranch and the animals lucky enough to call it home.

Jill and Cody and their dedicated group of volunteers seem to have made it their life's mission, to help so many of these unfortunate animals, who have lost their homes. They work hard at socializing them, to make them easier adoptable, go way out of their way, to make sure that prospective adopters are suitable to the animal. I believe that because of their dedication, they have made many friends in our little community, who are willing to help their cause, but the need seems never ending. They seem to always find a way, to help one more of these unfortunate creatures, who would otherwise be on death row, through no fault of their own!
I applaud them all!

Before my daughter became involved with Shadows Fund I was a bit leery regarding pits. Since that time I have learned that they are very loving and loyal pets. I now have one of my own. Jill and Cody do an amazing job of providing a loving environment for so many lost, abused, neglected and unwanted animals. I am amazed at the dedication these two have and the hours that they put in to make sure these animals find good loving homes. i would give then a 10 star rating.

9 years I became a pitbull owner and realized what great living dogs they are. I found shadows fund over five years ago and have been volunteering ever since. If it weren't for this rescue I don't know where I would be. They are an inspiration to all of us. Their drive and determination to save love and place this breed is above and beyond

Last October 2015 Shadows Fund listed Snowball as a dog in need. She was in a local shelter with medical issues. They hated the idea of her staying on cold cement with all her tumors. She had a not so glamorous past with humans etc. I said I would foster her. Wasn't sure how it would be. I had lost my bull mastiff in march 2015. Was in a bad depression. But her story broke my heart. She came October 3 2015. And is still here with us. I believe she has saved me emotionally! I will go back to Shadows Fund when the time comes again. They gave me a reason to smile & get out of bed again. I am forever grateful for their compassion & love for all the dogs. Thank you♡
