What heroism looks like


Did you know On May 4, 2012 my mom and I were walking home when she fell unconscious on a set of railroad tracks, directly in the path of on on-coming freight train. I pushed and pulled my mom off the tracks, saving her but I wasn’t so lucky as I was struck by the train and critically injured. That’s why they call me a hero!

Lilly Fund Mission

Send Donation

Giving online has never been more secure, convenient or hassle-free with our Paypal donation. We also do accept check donations and the address is listed on the donation page.

Dogs we’ve helped

Since 2012 we have helped hundreds of dogs get life saving vet care with the help of our 300k Facebook followers. They have donated upwards of $200,000 to the causes we took on over the years.


We partner with rescues and shelters all over the country to bring awareness to all the homeless and forgotten dogs that are up for adoption. Breed advocacy is one of our top priorities since we believe pit bulls make amazing pets.


What People Say

I am a special education teacher and I tutor an 11 year old girl. Together we read the story of Lilly. What an amazing dog! That story was written several years ago, but we were wondering if Lilly is well and still out greeting the public. If my student wants to write a letter or see Lilly, would that be feasible? At any rate, we enjoyed that heartwarming story. Thank you!

Could we meet her, please? I have a dog that we rescued too. She is a puppy and her name is Rosie. I am happy you rescued Lilly. Thank you!
