Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days 2014
A Record Breaking Success!
Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days blew the doors off its 2014 adoptions goal! Hoping to place 10,000 dogs and cats nationwide, our adoption partners — more than 200 of them serving 591 cities — found loving homes for 16,665 pets in just two days!
This is an increase of 98% over last year’s 8,432 adoptions! Maddie’s Fund originally set aside $10 million this year to underwrite these adoptions, but the total donation amount is $13,318,000.
Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days has supported the adoptions of more than 45,000 homeless dogs and cats since the program’s inception in 2010. For each pet adopted, Maddie’s Fund® gives participating shelters from $500 to $2,000 to cover the true costs of those adoptions. This funding enables the shelters and rescue groups to save and treat more animals throughout the year.
Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days is a collaborative effort of countless people trying to save the lives of shelter animals, a testament to what can be done when people come together and rally for a common cause. Read our press release for more details!
