I work with ALOT of rescue groups. This group is by far, one of the best. Elite in a sector where so many groups are sub par. The work they put in to each dog is nothing short of amazing. Some dogs wouldn’t have a chance without them stepping up. They are invested in the dogs and the homes they find them FOREVER, for life. Thank you Churchill Foundation for all that you do. Especially for the misfits of the dog world!

The Churchill foundation is always on top of our communities needs. The animals, and even the peoples needs. I have so much respect for this great organization. And they were the rescuers of Groot. Who i loved from a far.

I had two very sick puppies they flew somebody all the way out to Seattle and picked them up. They are now gaining weight and do so much better. Without the foundations I don’t know what I would have done I could not give them what they needed and I am forever greatfull that they are getting better everyday!

The Churchill Foundstion is absolutely the most transparent rescue I've seen. They take on major medical cases without a second thought. Other than "If we didn't, who else would?" I am.prod to support them and one day will adopt my next baby from them.

TCF is amazing. Their motto "For life" is more than a statement. It's how the rescue is run. Not just lifelong homes and returns (if needed).

Adopters and dedicated volunteers become family. There's no better rescue for a medical case.

They go above and beyond for the medical dogs that end up at the city shelter. I for one strongly admire how far this rescuse has come. Looking forward to seeing the wonderful things ahead.

My boyfriend and I were thinking out getting a new dog after our last one died of old age. My boyfriend found the picture of our puppy and fell in love. This foundation is so great and helpful. They said if we need them to take our puppy to get her shots they will do it for us. I will definitely recommend them to everyone who is looking for a rescue!

This organization is everything I wanted in a dog rescue and more. Their communication is exceptionally clear - even when they email about a dog with behavior issues. And it is obvious from the get go that they have systems in place for interacting with potential dog families, are absolute experts at training and they really care about their work. It is thanks to them that we have a rescue dog in our home who has become part of our family.

I have many experiences with TCF and all are amazing. As a foster I've had nothing but support. As a volunteer the same. My greatest gift from them has been adoption. I don't know another rescue that is so involved to avoid failure. They're available for late night calls, panic moments, dog sitting when out of town, all around great.

The Churchhill foundation is nothing short of phenomenal. I have adopted two dogs from them and each process was amazing for not only us but the dogs. The best part is that they think of every detail to a dog being adopted out and not just letting them go to any home. They want to make sure they go to a true forever home. And even after it's all said and done you can reach out for advice or help in training. When you adopt from The Churchill foundation, you become a part of their family.

In 2015 we fostered a cute little guy through The Churchill Foundation. After having him for about 2 months, we decided to adopt him. The Churchill Foundation has been supportive every step of the way, even coming over in 2018 for FREE dog training!!!! They do whatever it takes to make "unadoptable" dogs adoptable. I don't know where my life would be without our Dilly aka Dillinger. The Churchill Foundation, in my opinion, is the BEST rescue group out there. I will never be able to thank them enough for what they do for the animals in our community.

Finn (fka T-Rex) is our sweet boy that we adopted from The Churchill Foundation. He is a pittie, black dog and had a medical issue - the trifecta that would have surely been his death sentence, if not for them.
Our lives have forever been improved by Finn! He is the sweetest, most loving & happy dog we've ever known. He helped the foster dog we had, Groot, become calm and learn how to be a dog. Groot snuggled with him all the time. Finn's older sister, Cinder, is his partner in crime and they both love playing in the river.
Finn has taught many people that just because you're different, doesn't mean you can't do things; you just do them a little differently. He swims with a life jacket, goes camping, and to stores with us, being an ambassador for his breed and adopting dogs with medical needs.
Thank you Lara & Churchill! We will ALWAYS support them.
They may be a small foundation, but they are mighty in heart & impact.

The Churchill Foundation works tirelessly to give animals in need a chance! I’ve been watching since the start and have seen so many dogs on their last leg be turned around into happy, healthy, loved members of wonderful new families. The founder is a force to be reckoned with and Churchill, the man himself, is a precious, unforgettable inspiration. I love TCF! ❤️

I had the pleasure of working with The Churchill Foundation when they took on the rescue of my favorite shelter dog. TCF is known for handling the rescue of medical and behavioral cases that may be outside of the ability of others. Their skilled and talented members are able to rehabilitate these difficult cases, guiding them into loving homes. As for my favorite dog, now known as Dublin, I rest easier knowing that his needs are well cared for and he has a great quality of life while he waits for a home that will love and embrace his quirks. Thank you for what you do!

The Churchill Foundation is amazing. They have always had what is best for the animal in mind when making important decisions. I have fostered a puppy for them and if I needed anything they were right there. I once found a dog in dire need of help and they stepped up within MINUTES to help. If you are looking for an organization that is 1. Organized 2. Knows what they are talking about and use the best methods to achieve a goal 3. Step up when others look away, and 4. Never compromise their values or the worth of the animal just to get an adopter, look no further!!

This organization is truly incredible! They give chances to dogs that others have looked over due to medical or behavioral needs. They are passionate but also intelligent and know what is best for each individual dog. I can't say enough about this organization. Adopt from them or volunteer for them and you won't regret it!!
