Who is Maddie?

Maddie was a beloved Miniature Schnauzer whose unconditional love, devotion, loyalty and spirit inspired her caregivers, Dave and Cheryl Duffield, to start a charitable foundation, Maddie’s Fund®, in her name.  To read more about Maddie and the Duffield Family, click here!

Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days was a Huge Success!

Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days blew the doors off its 2014 adoption goal! Hoping to place 10,000 dogs and cats nationwide, our adoption partners — more than 200 of them in 591 cities — found loving homes for more than 15,000 pets in just two days!

This is an increase of 78% 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 likely to be much higher.

Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days has supported the adoptions of more than 30,000 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.  Click here to read the press release.

Thank You Maddie!
