Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days
May 31 – June 1, 2014
FREE PET ADOPTIONS May 31 AND June 1
Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days is being held to increase awareness of homeless animals, boost adoptions, and support the shelters and rescue organizations in the 14 participating communities. To date, Maddie’s Fund has awarded $11.3 million to the participating groups which have adopted a total of 15,154 dogs and cats during the past four events. The money given by Maddie’s Fund has enabled shelters to treat and rehabilitate senior pets and those with medical conditions – animals who likely would have been euthanized otherwise.
The event honors the memory of the foundation’s namesake, a Miniature Schnauzer named Maddie. Maddie was a little dog who made a big impact on the Duffield family, and they want every homeless dog and cat to have what she had – a loving home.

* Maddie’s Fund will pay organizations $500 for each healthy animal under the age of seven, $1,000 for each adoption involving a dog or cat who is seven years of age or older or who has been treated for one or more treatable medical conditions, and $2,000 for each adoption involving a dog or cat who is seven years of age or older and who has been treated with one or more treatable medical conditions (list is available at http://adopt.maddiesfund.org).
