Today, we celebrate Maddie’s birthday! Her birthday is technically Sunday, April 26th, but we’re kicking off the celebration early since it’s #FeelGoodFriday. The little lady that started it all continues to positively impact millions of animals throughout the country.
Maddie was part of Dave and Cheryl Duffield’s family for 10 years, and they founded Maddie’s Fund® to honor their sweet yet feisty and spirited dog. It’s the fulfillment of a promise made to Maddie while playing together on the living room rug, that if they ever had any money, they would give back to her and her kind so that other families could experience the immense joy they had with her.
Today, more than ever, her impact on the animal welfare industry has been immense. We know that with everything happening right now, she would be so happy to know that so many pets are riding out the “storm” in loving foster homes.
Please, enjoy these home videos of Maddie and have a great weekend. (Maddie would want you to!)
