I have volunteered and fostered fir this rescue since it's inception, and I have had the best experiences. I have never had an issue getting assistance with foster needs even in an emergency. I also love that due to the types of adopters we can see pupdates about all of their rescue pups now with furever families. The transperancy is a huge plus, especially because this is a rescue that takes medical cases. They are always open about all medical needs, funds brought in, and the needs of the rescue to maintain and sustain. One of the founders of this rescue was foster mom to the pup I ultimately adopted, which is how my involvement began. Now I help when I can because of their beliefs. They support medical causes, provide lifetime training, maintain transparency about costs, and are incredibly honest about the needs of the rescue animal being adopted.

Churchill Foundation is the best! Since the moment I contacted them with questions about our puppy that we adopted they have been amazing. They truly care about the dogs and you can tell they want the best for them. I would recommend them to anyone thinking about adopting a dog.

The Churchill Foundation is the best rescue around! They take in dogs with medical and behavorial issues when no other rescue will. I have seen them work miracles with them and then get them adopted into good homes. I am proud to volunteer with them when I can.

They are amazing from what they do and who they are! When you adopt, you are not only gaining a pet, but also gaining a family for life. You are never alone and can always go to them for any question, no matter how big or small. I am proud to be part of TCF family and volunteer!

We started as a foster family for the foundation and fell in love with our foster baby. After a few potential homes decided to go with others we decided she fit right in with the rest of our crazy bunch. Will always rescue from them from now on!

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!

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 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 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!
