A Miniature Schnauzer named Maddie inspired a $300 million legacy dedicated to giving every dog and cat in the United States what she had: a loving home. This year, $10 million of that legacy will go to Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days, a free pet adoption event for the nation’s homeless dogs and cats, now in its fifth year.

This year, Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days will be held the weekend of May 31 – June 1, 2014, and will expand to include 200 animal shelters and rescue groups in 591 cities across the U.S. 

Here in the Bay Area, free adoptions will be held at 100 locations throughout Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco and Santa Clara counties.

Maddie’s Fund has earmarked $10 million as a way to give back to the participating 
organizations, donating up to $2,000 per adopted dog or cat. The goal of the event is to find loving homes for 10,000 homeless dogs and cats in two days. 

Maddie was a beloved four-legged family member of David Duffield, founder of Workday® and PeopleSoft, and his wife, Cheryl.

For the last four years, Maddie’s Fund®, their family’s foundation, has sponsored Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days to honor her memory.

“When we look into the eyes of the dogs and cats at the adoption event, we see Maddie’s spirit in every one of them,” says Duffield. “We want all of them to have a chance to inspire, love and enrich the lives of their future families the way Maddie did ours.”
