*** Every Saturday, LAist will feature an adoptable cat and dog from a different local shelter or accredited 501c3 rescue organization. Take a look at these furry bundles and consider giving them a home, or forward their faces to your friends who may be interested. ***


This week’s dog is from the Bill Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that rescues dogs from the Los Angeles City Shelter System and places them into loving homes. The Bill Foundation is a tribute to Bill, a rescued Golden/Lab who succumbed to cancer in August 1998. Bill Foundation founders, Jo and Peter Forman, decided to focus their grief into a positive channel by saving the lives of dogs.
