Old Bill’s Fun Run and Dog Is My CoPilot 

For the past 24 years, The Old Bill’s Fun Run has been an integral fundraising partner for many nonprofits in Jackson Hole. Dog Is My CoPilot is no exception.  We have relied on the generous donations from our amazing community of supporters to power our life saving rescue flights.  

A little more about Old Bill’s in 2020

Twenty-four years ago, an anonymous, philanthropic couple, fondly known as Mr. and Mrs. Old Bill, envisioned a collaborative event to support local nonprofits. Fast forward to today, and the Old Bill’s Giving season runs from August 1st till race day on September 12th. Although there will not be your typical race at the end of the fundraising campaign, people are running dispersed and socially distant races across Jackson Hole.  Donations to the Community Foundation are being accepted during this time and there are many ways to get involved and/or give.

Our Proud Partners in Jackson Hole

The Animal Adoption Center (AAC) and Paws of JH are two other Jackson based animal welfare organizations involved with Old Bill’s Fun Run. Both of these organizations are partners with Dog is My CoPilot and have helped us find loving homes for abandoned and at risk pets this year.  The AAC has accepted animals from 3-4 flights a month this year to save dogs and cats from places like El Paso Texas, Dallas, Texas, Lardeo, Texas and Los Angeles, CA.  

Our dogs getting a Furever home

There are so many great stories of the dogs and cats that have been rescued and have found new homes in our community. One dog, Jack, has made a big impact on our staff and is finally in his furever home. Jack came from the streets of El Paso and was part of a rescue flight with our partners El Paso Animal Services back in May.  When he arrived in Jackson, Paws of JH fostered Jack at the Living Center nursing home where he gave comfort to the many seniors.  He was finally adopted in June and has been camping all summer with his new family!
