Maddie’s Fund® is helping abused animals with their pet rescue services.
Maddie’s Fund®, the Pet Rescue Foundation, is a family foundation established in 1999 to help fund the creation of a no-kill nation where all healthy, sick and injured shelter dogs and cats are guaranteed a loving home. Maddie’s Fund® has awarded $106 million in grants since 1999. It’s the largest pet foundation in the U.S. dedicated to saving dog and cat lives.
Maddie’s Fund® is a family foundation endowed by the founder of Workday® and PeopleSoft, Dave Duffield and his wife, Cheryl. Maddie’s Fund® is helping to achieve and sustain a no-kill nation by providing solutions to the most challenging issues facing the animal welfare community through the combined efforts of Maddie’s® Grant Giving, Maddie’s CenterSM (hands-on animal care), and Maddie’s InstituteSM (research and education).
Maddie’s Fund® supports collaborative efforts in which entire cities and counties pool their talents and resources to build a safety net of care for the community’s dogs and cats. The foundation awards millions of dollars through multi-year grants to animal welfare coalitions to end the killing of healthy and treatable shelter dogs and cats community-wide. It also offers grants to colleges of veterinary medicine to establish shelter medicine programs so that the specialized knowledge and skills of these institutions’ faculty and students can be incorporated into the effort to save all healthy, sick and injured shelter pets nationwide.
