No Kill News from the US– Maddie’s Fund

About Maddie’s Fund®
Maddie’s Fund, The Pet Rescue Foundation, is a family foundation funded by Workday and PeopleSoft Founder Dave Duffield and his wife, Cheryl.

Maddie’s Fund is helping to create a no-kill nation where all healthy and treatable shelter dogs and cats are guaranteed a loving home.

To achieve this goal, Maddie’s Fund is investing its resources in building community collaborations where animal welfare organizations come together to develop successful models of lifesaving; in veterinary colleges to help shelter medicine become part of the veterinary curriculum; in private practice veterinarians to encourage greater participation in the animal welfare cause; and in the implementation of national strategies to collect and report shelter statistics.

Maddie’s Fund is named after the family’s beloved Miniature Schnauzer who passed away in 1997.

DRP Comment:

We definately need a Maddies Fund equivalent here in Australia. They are doing brilliant work to publicise the plight of companion animals and solutions.  And working on Veterinarians to be more involved in practical solutions.

We collect Pound Stats in NSW each year, and in Vicoria every couple of years. It needs to happen by State, each year. Your thoughts?
