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 Maddie’s® grant giving and Maddie’s InstituteSM.
Maddie’s Fund® is named after the family’s beloved Miniature Schnauzer who passed away in 1997.
Maddie’s Fund® is sponsoring the adoptions of senior and medically treatable shelter dogs and cats in Alameda, Contra Costa and San Francisco Counties through an innovative program – the Maddie’s® Treatable Assistance Program. As an adopter of one of our eligible animals, your adoption fee will be waived and you can use those funds for… treats, beds, toys, kibble, training or anything else your heart desires!
Visit our virtual Adoption Center and browse through our available cats and dogs – eligible animals will have a Maddie’s Fund® logo and a note about the program at the bottom of their individual pages.
Below are some of our shelter residents that have been adopted through this program:
