There are no events planned at this time.

The last Don’t Kill Bill show was March 10th, 2012, in Lakewood, Colorado. We raised $1,400+ for local rescues that night just from our drawing! Congrats to Retriever Rescue of Colorado for winning our grand prize of a $500 donation!

The show was excellent last night. It was a good balance, as Kyla said, of
fun, education and business for both the seasoned rescuer and the novice.
The combination of multimedia, aerial fabric, narrative, music really came
together well.

I think it has good potential for going national, as there is room to add
local angles while keeping the bulk of the show the same. It showcases the
many aspects of rescue, applauding the hard work, demonstrating the
breadth--big, little, old, young dogs (and their rescuers!)

The one piece which surprised me was just before the intermission Kyla had
all the rescues represented come on stage, introduce themselves and answer a
fun question. I'm guessing about 30 people came up, and I thought, "Oh no,
this will take forever." But it went fast, the people really stayed on task,
but the surprising thing was the diversity of the groups present. It was a
real testament of how UFP really can cross lines and bring all these
organizations together.

As I manned the HTB booth, a couple of people were interested in sponsoring
the show, so I think now Kyla has built the show, and there's momentum,
video, etc., it will take off. She's certainly broken the back of the
production, although I know she'll want to refine it. It was a very slick
presentation, with only one slide showing out of sequence out of hundreds.
Subtle things like the last slide in each story being framed differently
than the rest so you knew the story was ending was a nice touch.

Brava bella!

  4. We think what you are doing is a great thing. Anything to help get rid of all the Mills out there. We have taken in several Mill dogs in the last eleven years that I have run this Rescue. Such an awful situation for all the dogs in there. However when they come though a Rescue they stand a much better chance of finding that forever home.

    I’d love to attend but I live in Florida. Good luck.

  6. What an awesome way to have fun while helping spread the word about puppy mills! I’ve fostered many dogs rescued from mills & no dog should ever have to endure that kind of existence. I and others from MHWR will be there to support Kyla!

  7. Boston Terriers of Colorado (on meetup.com) will be there to support you and Bill!

  8. This sounds great! I will be coming, and I will pass this along to my student group on the Auraria campus.

  10. Lynn Snyder says:

    This is wonderful!! Although I live out of state and cannot attend, I will be spreading the word, cheering you on and hoping for a sell out crowd.

  11. I wish that I could be there! Thank you for all that you do to improve the lives of dogs!
    I hope that there’s a good turnout for the performance and that all goes smoothly.
    The video looks great!

    Two thumbs up!!

    This was a great event! I really enjoyed being there to bring awareness to the Colorado Shih Tzu, Lhasa Apso, Maltese Rescue (meetup.com) (coloradoshihtzumalteserescue.org) and to learn about all the other organizations and rescues and the amazing work they do. I think it’s great that we could all come together to support all the things that go into Rescue! It was very informative and educational and exposes puppymills in a very eye opening way without being too graphic (perfect for people like me who cry easy, like everytime the ASPCA commercial comes on). I really think Kyla and everyone who collaborated on this are doing an amazing thing and this will be a step towards removing stigmas over rescue dogs, showing people the good and the ugly, why puppymills need to be stopped, and all the great ways people can give their support to rescue dogs. I know Up For Pups Don’t Kill Bill will bring great things and I thank everyone who helped participate in bringing it all to life.

    The show was INCREDIBLE! An amazing performance by Kyla with wonderful tales of fostering and adopting dogs. It shed a new light on puppy mills, and the abuse the dogs endure in them.

  16. As a trainer and behavior consdultant, I’ve seen first hand the damage puppy mills do and the life-givng redemption that fostering and rescue organizations provide.
    Great work, Kyla! Any light you can shine on the efforts of these groups and the important work they do, offers hope and the possibility of rescue for even more of these deserving dogs.
