WHY:  During the past four events, a total of 15,154 dogs and cats have been adopted.  To date, Maddie’s Fund has awarded $11.4 million to participating shelters and rescue groups to treat and rehabilitate senior pets and those with minor medical conditions – animals who most likely otherwise would have been euthanized.

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
