Maddie's Pet Rescue Project Stats

The Maddie's Fund® mission is to revolutionize the status and well-being of companion animals.


Maddie's Fund is a family foundation founded in 1994 by Workday co-founder Dave Duffield and his wife, Cheryl, who have endowed the Foundation with more than $300 million. Since then, they have awarded more than $153 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 comforted them during stressful business times when Dave was launching a startup software company. Maddie was with Dave and Cheryl from 1987-1997 and continues to inspire them today.


ARF is proud to be a partner in a ground breaking Maddie's Pet Rescue Project in Mobile. With our partners, we have accomplished so much and continue to work towards the goal of making Mobile a no-kill county!
