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 $187.8 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 great 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.

FIX OUR FERALS SPAY-NEUTER CLINIC TEMPORARILY CLOSED
Dear caretakers, clients, and supporters of Fix Our Ferals and the FOF Spay-Neuter Clinic,
Fix Our Ferals regrets that we must temporarily close our doors in order to restructure our program.
Our promise to you is that we will make every effort, to open again at our same Richmond facility as soon as possible.
We cannot offer a re-opening date commitment at this time, but we are now researching and discussing a more viable model which will again offer affordable spay-neuter to East Bay residents, and help many more cats.
For those of you who have offered suggestions or help, we request that you contact us again when we announce our plans and ask for your help.

Fix Our Ferals (FOF) is a community-based, non-profit organization that promotes trap-neuter-return (TNR) to humanely reduce outdoor cat populations in the San Francisco East Bay. We help improve neighborhoods for both cats and people by:
- Providing affordable sterilizations and vaccinations, as well as free trap loans with a security deposit, information and advice for implementing trap-neuter-return (TNR) in East Bay neighborhoods
- Educating community members, leaders, and decision-makers about TNR as the only humane and effective long-term solution to neighborhood cat issues
- Reducing unnecessary killing of cats in shelters by advocating TNR as the superior method of population control
