*About Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation

Dave and Cheryl Duffield Foundation is a private charitable foundation based in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.  The Duffields are long-time benefactors of companion animal causes, education initiatives and veteran services, and are the founders of Maddie's Fund, a leading animal welfare foundation dedicated to revolutionizing the status and well-being of companion  animals.  They thoughtfully honor the spirit of their dog Maddie in their philanthropic pursuits to thank her for her love and companionship.




Closing out Project Kitty Kare!

Sadly Project Kitty Kare has come to an end (for now).  The grant offered a 1 year window to completion and it expired December 31, 2019.  However, it was an overwhelmingly successful program with every available dollar being spent to spay/neuter a total of 261 cats/kittens owned by folk who could not otherwise afford the surgery.  And every age-appropriate feline received a Rabies shot too!  We extend our special thanks to the veterinary practices that participated in the program - without them none of it would have been possible!  And of course our enormous thanks to Maddie's Pet Project and Dave& Cheryl Duffield Foundation for believing in us and what we are capable of .  #ThanksToMaddie.
