I first became aware of The Churchill Foundation at the inception. The founders passion alone was enough to grab my attention. Although, still a relatively new organization, I've watched them grow, flourish and succeed time and time again. What started out as a grass-roots, passion project turned into a way of life for those responsible for making the decisions.

As a donor, it's of the utmost importance to me to know that my hard-earned dollars are going to the cause, and with TCF, I know that is the case. Among their highest priorities is total transparency. Time and time again, with my own eyes, I've seen their bills for their medical dogs, and those bills oftentimes go well into the thousands. Time and time again, I've witnessed the hard work and dedication that goes into raising money to pay their bills and remain in good standing with service providers and specialists.

The bottom line is, I know they're putting my money where their mouths are. The animals taken under TCF's wings are not only cared for, they are WELL cared for. Time, money, effort and lots and lots of love are invested in each and every pet they rescue, rehabilitate and re-home.

I will proudly continue to be a supporter of this fine organization. Their ethics are unquestionable. TCF is truly #forlife!

The Churchill Foundation from inception has gone above and beyond for each of their dogs. They ensure each one is suitable to be adopted. Meaning, they are not only medically taken care of but behaviorally as well. I am honored to be entrusted to assist with the training of the behavioral challenged pups to assure a successful adoption. Many of these dogs would have never been saved if it wasn't for TCF taking them in "for life". I am overjoyed they take the time and do the research to find the best match for each dog that is adopted out. This shows responsibility and truly caring for each life saved. Keep up the great work Churchill, you'll always have the support of Danny's Dogs!

I have followed TCF since it's beginnings. Was totally over the moon in love with Churchill. I have watched them take done of the most challenging pups (medical and behavior) and help them become some of the most loved family members. They also scoop up other critters to save them from the dreaded E word. You should only be lucky enough to have watched Phelps become the boss of his people's after being saved by TCF and sent to be rehabbed by amother great org. Oh the stories of love trumping all!

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.

the thing that amazes me the most about the Churchill Foundation is they take Dogs from the kill shelter that anyone else would look at and say "No way...I'm not taking on that 'burden'.." The lost, sick, scared and hopeless cases.
My Girl is from a rescue Lara previously worked with and to this day she tells me "For Life" when I ask for help and guidance with my Angel.
They never give up or turn their back.
Thank Dog for Churchill Foundation.

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!!

The Churchill Foundation does a great job of not just rescuing dogs in need, but ensuring that every dog finds the right forever home. The trial adoption process helps make sure that the dog's personality fits with the family's lifestyle which really helps ensure a successful adoption. The best part is that when you adopt from them you become part of their family which means they continue to check in with you to make sure you have all the tools and resources required to make sure you are the pup's forever home.

The Churchill Foundation is a cause after my own heart. I was once a Co Founder myself to a Bull Breed Rescue is Las Vegas. I know the difference between a badly run organization and a good one.

The Churchill Foundation is better than good, they are AMAZING! I have watched them grow over the course of the years, and I have seen nothing but postive actions.

They serve a great purpose in the Las Vegas Community. I live vicariously through Laura and her team, and give when I can. If you are looking for a good cause to pay it forward, this is it!

I am very proud such a wonderful Rescue is in my home town. I look forward to watching many more accomplishments , and most of all, lives saved!!

I don't know where I would be in life as Lara and Churchill have been such a big part of myself and my fiance Picos lives.,not to mention every animal and family that this organization has saved and rescued and the hearts they have literally touched. Pico and I have been senior fosters and one foster fail (Mariah was suppose to be a weekend foster sleepover and we never gave her back lol) since day one and we always save one spot on the sofa for any rescue seniors they save. They just don't stand for foster and adopt but also they stand for educationwhich is so important in the community.Maybe one day we will stop seeing all animals I'm our local shelter but especially seniors. The community give back with their dog and cat food pantry for those that need emergency food to the Lukas Angels program that helps those in need of humanly helping their loved one cross the rainbow bridge and the support going through such a difficult time. I am proud to same I'm a Churchill foundation family member.
