The Bill Foundation is a great group. Their dogs are very WELL taken care of, get the best medical care, live in foster homes that know their dogs well (which makes adopting and making a match easy because they know their dogs), the people are friendly and helpful and their dogs are cute, sweet and loving. The people @ the Bill foundation do all they can to help you find the right match and they are very prompt to get the adoption process up and running so they can carefully place the dog in its forever home. They are also very careful about how and where their dogs are placed. They're main goal is to save lives, give them great care while they search for a home and do all they can to find the perfect home for each pet!
