Bill Foundation is a Los Angeles-based 501c3 non-profit Animal Rescue.
Here and now, we rescue as many dogs as possible to alleviate the suffering of those abandoned in shelters or on the street. We strive to provide the highest standard of vet care and training until our dogs are adopted into stable safe loving homes. Since receiving our non-profit status and beginning operation in May 2000, Bill Foundation has rescued and placed over 2200 dogs and counting.
In the beginning there was Bill, a 10-month-old Golden Retriever and Lab mix Jo and Peter Forman found starving and filthy, foraging in a trash can in August 1988. For ten years, Bill was a part of the Forman's family. He brought laughter, joy and the kind of wonderful companionship that only a dog can provide. When Bill lost his battle to cancer in 1998, the Forman's resolved to honor his memory by working to save other dogs like Bill who deserve a second chance at life. It was shortly after that the Bill Foundation was born.
BIll Foundation does not have an endowment, nor do we receive any funding from any city, county, state or federal sources. We rely solely on donations to continue our mission to rescue, rehabilitate and place at risk dogs. Every dollar contributed brings us closer to the day when no dog is left behind. Your contributions directly support the rescue, care and placement of our dogs. With your tax deductible donation, we can continue this life-saving work.
Sadly, we are mourning the loss of a really great dog today named Daddy'O. We named him that because he was just so darn cool!
He was rescued in 2011 from a kill shelter and was adopted soon after his rescue. Unfortunately, he was returned to us shortly after his adoption.
Being a big dog and 6 years old, we knew Daddy might have to wait a while to find his forever family.
Most people are looking for small, young dogs and the ones that will give a bigger dog a home always want them to be under 2 or 3 years old.
Daddy lived at the ranch where our bigger dogs stay while he waited for his forever home. Little did we know he would be waiting for years!
In March of 2015, Daddy found his forever dad and the two spent the past 22 months doing everything together!
Even though their time together was short lived, we are thrilled that he had the best 22 months a dog could want. He spent his days hiking and playing with some of his dog buddies and welcoming anyone that wanted to pet his giant head.
He will be greatly missed by so many of us. He was a truly amazing dog. ... See MoreSee Less
