We are three months in to the grant giveaways during the National Calls, and we’ve only just begun!
If you’re not already familiar, these Monday and Friday calls started early in the pandemic, as a way to come together when we had to be apart. They have grown to be a lifeline for many, with organizations learning from each other and connecting with each other online and off. And now, Maddie’s Fund® is offering grants just for participating. All you have to do is attend and sign-up for the random drawing. (Please note there will be no call on Friday, 4/22, due to Animal Care Expo).
This month, we gave four organizations/people a $2,500 grant.
The March winners from Friday’s Animal Welfare Leadership Roundup group are:
- Donell Randolph, Oakland Animal Services (Oakland, CA)
- Phillip Zimmerman, City of Sacramento (Sacramento, CA)
And Monday’s Shelter and Rescue Support call:
- BJ Andersen, Willamette Humane Society (Salem, OR)
- Tracy Brad, Beck’s Place (Monroe, WA)
If you haven’t already, be sure to join in on the informative and supportive calls. And afterwards, be sure to connect with your colleagues on Maddie’s® Pet Forum.
