Purchasing New Wheels to Save More Homeless Pets

We reunite or find new homes for thousands of lost and abandoned pets from all over Northern Nevada every year.

But we’ve grown out of our current transport van that brings them to our facility. We need your help to raise $150,000 that will provide a safe way to transport our four-legged friends!

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 $237.6 million in grants toward increased community lifesaving, shelter medicine education, and pet adoptions 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 from 1987 – 1997 and continues to inspire them today.
