Perception often becomes reality in people’s minds. When a dog shelter smells like, well, dog, some people perceive that as being an unhealthy environment.
Thanks to a recent Innovation Grant received from Maddie’s Fund things are smelling fresher at NEW PAWSibilities. Read here about the generous folks at Maddie’s Fund and how they are helping our dogs in very specific ways and helping us to increase the number of lives saved.
About Maddie’s Fund
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 $225.7 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. Maddie’s Fund is the fulfillment of a promise to an inspirational dog, investing its resources to create a no-kill nation where every dog and cat is guaranteed a healthy home or habitat. #ThanksToMaddie.
