The Churchill Foundation strives to be, not only an animal rescue, but a community resource that encourages participation and involvement. We hope to create a collaborative coalition of animal enthusiasts that are willing to work together to portray rescue and shelter animals in a positive light.
The Churchill Foundation was created by caring individuals in Las Vegas that felt that our city needs to change. Too many animals end up in shelters through no fault of their own. From strays, abandoned, even abused and neglected animals are forced into unknown fate daily. This can change, it needs to change. Your generous donation will go toward financing our community programs, help with research for new innovative operation ideas, fund positive ad campaigns, and of course help with the few animals lucky enough to end up under our roof. Every donation contributes to a brighter future for the homeless animals in Las Vegas and NO amount is too small. We happily accept donations of items most often needed by shelter dogs and cats. For a list of items we can use, check our community page. If we ever receive items not currently needed by the dogs and cats at The Churchill Foundation, we deliver the items to shelters and rescues in our area that desperatly need them. Thank you for your help! You can donate via PayPal or by contacting us through the site. You can also sign up for a monthly donation as well.

All Vegas Horses is a 501c3 public charity and community organization dedicated to bringing both an online information resource and in-the-field support to equestrians and related businesses, clubs, and agencies in southern Nevada. Formed in March 2011, the diverse features of the website have enabled people with similar interests in horses to discuss their passion, meet new friends, and find events, supplies and services they need.
What is our goal? To improve our equestrian community overall. Our primary focus is with our L.E.A.N. program (Local Equine Assistance Network) to provide a resource cooperative for horses or owners in need of help. Hundreds of hours are volunteered each month by members contributing time to our rescue and community projects and keeping a consolidated focus on horses in our area. We deeply appreciate all our advertisers, sponsors and friends for helping to keep AVH growing and benefiting the community it supports.
In the Italian language “Bella” means “beautiful girl”…and that she was. Her story began three years ago as a lost and lonely pup at Lied Animal Shelter. The shelter had decided to euthanize her because her back legs were deformed. Luckily for Bella, Holly Andrews was there to offer her a forever home.
Bella was a blue, Pit-bull and Weimaraner mix. Since Holly had friends with The Las Vegas Weimaraner Club & Rescue she asked if they would be willing to help raise money to support her future medical care. In their efforts to help the LVWCR asked their friend Arica, owner of http://www.petographique.com if she would take photographs of Bella so the community could see just how beautiful she was despite her deformities.
The LVWCR created the Bella Fund and many organizations in the community supported their efforts to raise money for Bella to have reconstructive surgery on her back legs. Barking Dogs Bakery & Boutique had a Valentine’s Fundraiser for Bella. Many people paid to have their picture taken with Bella. She truly loved her party and so did her new found friends.
Unfortunately the reconstructive surgery Bella needed would cost over $8000 and even with all the fundraising efforts we only raised around $1300. Yet, Bella’s Fund did help cover her medical visits and boo boos when needed. As time went on Bella’s legs became stronger. She wasn’’t perfect, but she was to Holly. She was able to walk and play which was more than anyone ever thought she would be able to do.
Bella was a funny little girl with attitude. She liked to sleep in a suitcase. She would curl up in a ball and pull the lid down over her head. Bella was also very social. Since Holly is a volunteer DJ at many animal charity events, Bella came along for the ride and absolutely loved the attention she received. People would always gather around to play and love on her.
On February 19th Bella crossed the rainbow bridge. She had renal failure. Bella lived for three years however, she lived life to its fullest and showed us all how she could overcome her imperfections with pride. It was important to Holly to share that “you can make a difference in an animal’s life”. Bella was able to bring a community together to prove that animals can truly make a difference in our lives too.
