Maddie’s Fund: Maddie’s Fund mission is to “Revolutionize the status and well being of companion animals.” Feral Friends received a $1,692 grant from Maddie’s Fund at the end of 2010 which paid for veterinary care for the cats and kittens in our adoption program. These funds were received because Feral Friends participated in a community collaborative project with several local animal agencies interested in reducing the number of animals entering shelters and the euthanasia rate. To qualify for this grant, we provided information about our program since 2007. The compiled data we submitted to Maddie’s Fund is below. We are very grateful to Maddie’s Fund and their support of Feral Friends.
