The Churchill Foundation rescues major medical and behavior dogs from the local animal shelter. They find adopters for life! If an adopter can no longer care for the dog, The Churchill Foundation takes the dog back into rescue and finds an appropriate home. Once a Churchill Foundation dog, always a Churchill Foundation dog. Even with the high vet bills that accumulate from major medical expenses, the Churchill Foundation is able to fund raise to get them paid off by the end of the year. Just an awesome Rescue group!

TCF takes in the more difficult cases and works to get them healthy and ready for adoptions. They train some of the least social dogs so that they become a well balanced and confident dog.

The Churchill Foundation always goes above and beyond in helping rescue as many dear souls as possible. Their motto is ‘For Life’ and they comply with that 100%. If someone adopts a Churchill and for what ever reason can’t keep it, Churchill will step up and find another loving home. Churchill also specializes in medical rescues and never gives up. No matter the challenge. The volunteers of Churchill are like a huge family, always ready to help transport, take to dr appts, foster, what ever it takes to save a life.

I wish all rescue foundations were like the Chuchill Foundation. I adopted Bugsy 15 months ago. They made it easy and set us up for success. I feel that they are there for me if I ever need them. Love my Bugsy and a big hug to those who saved her for me!

We decided to foster after adopting a dog from the foundation in the fall of 2018. Like the adoption process, fostering with the Churchill Foundation is a first rate experience. They place true trust in their fosters (meaning they don't micromanage) and they respond to all communication in a timely manner. They actively try to place their dogs by taking consistent action (including getting us a local TV spot where we got to gush about our foster, Moxie, and the free training for life that comes with a Churchill dog) while also adhering to high standards when screening applications. In a world where we don't have control of so much, the Churchill Foundation does a superb job in taking control where it can to help dogs get a better life and showing amazing appreciation for their volunteers in the process.

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've attended their fund raisers and know of their good works. They taken the difficult medical and behavioral issue dogs. These dogs would most likely be euthanized without this amazing group.

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!

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.
