About Maddie’s Fund
The Maddie’s Fund® mission is to revolutionize the status and well-being of companion animals.
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 is named after the family’s beloved Miniature Schnauzer who passed away in 1997.

Maddie’s® Treatable Assistance Program Information
Maddie’s® Treatable Assistance Program is a new pilot program for adoption guarantee organizations in Alameda, Contra Costa and San Francisco Counties to support the adoptions of senior and/or medically treatable homeless dogs and cats originating from animal control shelters in those counties.
Maddie’s® Treatable Assistance Program provides adoption stipends of $700 per adoption of medically treatable or senior dogs and cats transferred from animal control shelters in Alameda, Contra Costa or San Francisco County and $1,400 per adoption of medically treatable and senior dogs and cats transferred from animal control shelters in Alameda, Contra Costa or San Francisco County. The program began in October 2012 and will run through December 31, 2013.
Maddie’s Fund is piloting the subsidy program to give local shelters and rescues the means to find more homes for vulnerable shelter pets, strengthen the relationship between animal control shelters and adoption guarantee groups, and shift some of the burden of responsibility for these pets away from cash-strapped government agencies.
