Thanks to Maddie

Maddie's Fund

With gratitude to

Maddie’s Fund®

for the establishment of the Shelter Medicine Program at the
University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine
to enhance the health and welfare of homeless animals through education,
innovation, and advancement of the life-saving goals
of sheltering programs.

A bright future for sheltered animals depends on
new generations of veterinarians with specialized knowledge
and skills to keep shelter pets healthy and treat those
who are sick and injured.

Maddie’s Fund is the fulfillment of a promise to an inspirational dog
and the creation of a goal towards achieving a no-kill nation
where all healthy and treatable shelter dogs and cats are guaranteed a loving home.
