A totally caring organization that to my knowledge never turns an animal away.

I have seen so many dogs change not only their demeanor but their trust and overall well being because of the bill foundation. They not only save lives but they enable lives to flourish from animals and humans alike. I personally know franklin- he has the most upbeat unique personality and I have the bill foundation to thank for this. I know they are in financial trouble due to the recession. We as a community need to strive to keep this place open!!
