Purpose and Activities

Giving to create a no-kill nation where all healthy and treatable shelter dogs and cats are guaranteed a loving home. To achieve this goal, the foundation is investing its resources in: community collaborations where animal welfare organizations come together to develop successful models of lifesaving; veterinary colleges to help shelter medicine become part of the veterinary curriculum; private practice veterinarians to encourage greater participation in the animal welfare cause; and the implementation of national strategies to collect and report shelter statistics.


Established in 2000 in NV; merged with Maddie's Fund in 2008 - Founded by Dave Duffield, founder of the financial management and human capital management software vendor Workaday, Inc. He is also the co-founder, former Chair. and C.E.O. of PeopleSoft, which, from 1987-2005, provided human resource management systems and customer relationship management software. The foundation makes good on a promise the Duffields made to their beloved Miniature Schnauzer, Maddie, to give back in dollars that which Maddie gave to them in companionship and love. Maddie passed away in 1997, but thanks to this one little dog, abandoned shelter animals have new opportunities to find loving homes in which they, too, may share in the joy and love that Dave and Cheryl enjoyed with Maddie.
