We are so excited to announce that we are a Maddie’s Fund® grant recipient for our Providing Urgent Rescue Relief (PURR) Program! Our PURR program vets cats on death row to relieve the financial burden on rescues so they can afford to take these cats into their group for adoption. With this support, we will be able to assist several cats escape euthanasia and go on to find their forever homes.
Maddie’s Fund® is a family foundation created in 1994 by Workday® co-founder Dave Duffield and his wife, Cheryl, who have endowed the Foundation with more than $300 million. Since then, the Foundation has awarded more than $187.8 million in grants toward increased community lifesaving, shelter medicine education, and pet adoptions across the U.S. The Duffields named Maddie’s Fund after their Miniature Schnauzer Maddie, who always made them laugh and gave them much joy. Maddie was with Dave and Cheryl for ten years and continues to inspire them today.
Maddie’s Fund® is the fulfillment of a promise to an inspirational dog, investing its resources to create a no-kill nation where every dog and cat is guaranteed a healthy home or habitat. #ThanksToMaddie.
