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.
