About Maddie's Fund

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 its grant giving, hands-on animal care, and research and education. Maddie's Fund is named after the family's beloved Miniature Schnauzer who passed away in 1997.

Maddie's Fund and the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals

Between 2005 and 2011, Maddie's Fund provided grants totaling more than $26 million to the Alliance to fund the Maddie's Pet Rescue Project in NYC and Maddie's Spay/Neuter Project in NYC to help the Alliance end the killing of healthy and treatable shelter dogs and cats community-wide. The Alliance is the largest Maddie's Fund community project in the United States.

In 2011, Maddie's Fund also provided a one-year grant for the Maddie's Spay/Neuter Project for Stray Community Cats in NYC to provide free spays and neuters for feral and stray cats and kittens in New York City for Certified TNR Caretakers.

In 2013 and 2014, the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals hosted Maddie's Pet Adoption Days in New York City. This national event, sponsored by Maddie's Fund and billed as the largest free pet adoption event in America, resulted in more than 8,500 adoptions by participating organizations in the NYC area. The Alliance and all the groups that participated in the events are grateful to Maddie's Fund for sharing Maddie's Pet Adoption Days with us and for helping to find new homes for so many Little New Yorkers.
