PAWS is a proud recipient of funding from Maddie’s Fund, helping to achieve a no-kill nation. Their Innovation Grants enabled us to launch our Kitten Relay rescue program to save orphaned kittens entering the city shelter, as well as a Mobile Pet Owner Resource Center to provide alternatives to surrender for struggling pet owners.

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 $225.7 million in grants toward increased community lifesaving, shelter management leadership, shelter medicine education, and foster care 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.
