MontanaThe Dillon Foundation has now moved to Montana

Dear Friends of the Dillon Foundation: Just a short note to say we have moved our base of operations. Yes, after over twenty years of helping people and animals in California, Mexico, Central America, Oklahoma, Arizona and many other parts of the world.

 

The Dillon Foundation has started a new and exciting journey.

 

Our new headquarters are located in Boulder Montana. This was a move that was driven by destiny. Our work in California was completed. It was time to meet and help a new group of people and animals.

 

We are looking forward to the many challenges that await us. With your continued support, we will experience them together.
