The Bill Foundation in Beverly Hills has been making a splash in the rescue and foster scene, documenting heroic efforts on video so we can ride the emotional roller coaster from despair to triumph. Nothing brings the struggle of homeless dogs to reality quite like seeing them in action. Do you recall the story of Asha Attie? We held our breaths as we learned that the Shih Tzu mama couldn’t feed her starving puppies because her fur was too matted. That’s when the Bill Foundation stepped in, rescuing the mama and her puppies, shaving Asha Attie’s fur, and saving the entire dog family.
To kick off Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, we featured the Bill Foundation’s video of the rescue of 15 dogs in 15 minutes. Yup, you heard that right — 15 dogs in 15 minutes. While en route to save a mama and her babies on the brink of death at a shelter, the Bill Foundation saved another dog chained up outside and another litter of puppies once arriving.
The puppies are now in foster care, thriving beautifully as they await their furever homes. And the Bill Foundation is sharing one of the litters from the video with us via live puppy cam.
Check out Willow Bohdi and her adorable puppies below, who were rescued when they were within hours of being put to sleep.
The Bill Foundation believes in the power of dogs to build community, and that together, as a village, we can improve the lives of canines and thus improve our own.
