I work at a shelter here in Las Vegas and when I see one of our dogs in need getting picked up by the Churchill Foundation I am so happy and relieved. I know that this dog will not just be "flipped " but their needs will be taken seriously and this rescue will do all they can to ensure this animal gets everything they need and all steps will be taken in ensuring the animal is placed in the most suitable and loving home.
I also signed up to foster for them and Laura was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Instead of treating me like something ugly for working at a shelter, she is a supporter of all we do and go through and understands struggles in a shelter as a whole. I can't wait to actually help them out by fostering and be a part of something bigger. I give much love to them.

There are no words to describe our love for TCF!! I have always been a supporter but when I adopted our Daisy from them I became their biggest fan! I can't begin to tell you how wonderful the adoption process was and how well trained and loving our girl is. Laura makes sure all adoptees have all their health cares met and are placed in correct environments. So things run very smoothly. And she is never a stranger in Daisy's life. I highly recommend calling TCF if you are looking for a new family member!

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.

I volunteer for The Churchill Foundation and it never ceases to amaze to amount of care and love all the rescues get. What ever they need, whatever challenges a rescue may be, The Churchill Foundation steps up. Severe medical, behavior, senior dogs that have been surrendered by owners. Doesn't matter, Churchill Foundation will take them, work with them as long as it takes and find perfect home for them no matter how much the cost, the time or the training. Adopters get dogs that are well adjusted and happy. Plus Churchill Foundation is there 'for life' with support, help or whatever is needed. Best rescue EVER!

TCF is truly a life saver for so many pets that would be left for dead bc of age, health conditions, 'aggressive breed' misconceptions, etc. In addition to rescuing & improving the quality of life for so many pets, they also advocate & educate throughout the community.

TCF helped us adopt our little monster who is the sweetest, best behaved, lovable, playful and amazing fur baby! TCF is amazing... Blu had such an amazing foster mom who took the time to train him and turn him into the sweetest pup! He has been the best and the training sessions have been amazing! I'm very glad we chose TCF! Thank you for giving us Blu (Monster, Yoda) :D

The world of animal rescue is full of people with tremendous passion. But, this group also has exceptional expertise that literally saves the lives of some of the most difficult dogs. Dogs whom others have rejected because they misbehaved or were not social. They know how to train and work with these "problem children" and take the time and have the patience that is needed for success.

This group does excellent work with animals that might not otherwise be adopted or have a chance at a great life in a forever home. I've personally fostered for them and will continue to do so to help them keep finding forever homes for the animals bring into their care. I have volunteered for and supported them from the beginning but have been so impressed with their message of "Educate, Advocate, Inspire" and their commitment to rescuing #forlife that I became a member of their Board.

I have been following TCF for awhile now. I admire the dedication they have for helping shelter dogs with medical issues. Nothing is impossible in the eyes of TCF. The work hard in finding the best medical help and fosters to help the animals they take into their rescue. I have supported in a few fundraisers and love seeing all the creative things they do to help raise awareness in their rescue.

I've watched this charity grow from its inception and I wouldn't adopt a dog from anywhere else. Absolutely amazing, I only wish I had more room for pups!

I've been following TCF for a long time now, and I've always admired the hard work they put in! They are so passionate, but they aren't driven on emotion alone like so many other rescues. They have a firm foundation of knowledge and confidence, and they do everything in their power to make sure each and every animal gets the life it deserves.

This year my husband and I adopted from TCF. The process was amazing, we could tell this organization cared deeply about our dog.

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!!
