Austin Pets Alive! is honored to announce the support from Maddie's Fund through a $50,000 grant for medical equipment. The majority of the grant will be used to purchase an x-ray machine so that Austin Pets Alive! can process our own x-rays. Since about 85% of the animals coming through our programs have at least one medical need, this x-ray machine will be an amazing resource for our veterinary team to use in our treatment of the dogs and cats. Please join us in thanking Maddie's Fund for their generous support!
About Maddie's Fund: Maddie's Fund, The Pet Rescue Foundation (www.maddiesfund.org), is a family foundation which is funded by the founder of Workday and PeopleSoft, Dave Duffield and his wife, Cheryl. 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.
To achieve this goal, Maddie's Fund is investing its resources in building community collaborations where animal welfare organizations come together to develop successful models of lifesaving; in veterinary colleges to help shelter medicine become part of the veterinary curriculum to train veterinarians to save the lives of sick and injured dogs and cats in animal shelters; and in the implementation of a national effort to promote accountability and transparency in animal shelter operations. Maddie's Fund is named after the family's beloved Miniature Schnauzer who passed away in 1997.
