Total Grant Funding: $14,488,000 (since 1997)
Maddie's Fund® has a long history of collaboration with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). We have provided HSUS with more than $14.4M in funding, ranging from small Special Giving and Conference Sponsorship grants to large multi-year projects such as The Shelter Pet Project, Sister Shelter Project, Companion Animal Population Management Program, Puppy Mill Campaign and Gulf Coast Project to name a few. The following are updates and a few new projects we have funded.
#SpayTogether Stimulus Plan: Early in 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic, spay and neuter surgeries were suspended for several months around the U.S. A partnership between organizations, funders and suppliers was born with the shared goal of providing spay/neuter surgeries for 50,000 animals within three months. Maddie’s Fund awarded the Humane Society of United States a $250,000 Partnership Grant in support of this plan.
The Humane Puerto Rico Spay-A-Thon Project: In June 2018, Maddie’s Fund along with 22 organizations partnered with the Humane Society of the United States to launch the Puerto Rico Spay-A-Thon Project. Thousands of dogs and cats were successfully spayed, neutered and vaccinated in Puerto Rico. As of July 2021, nearly 60,000 dogs and cats have been spayed and neutered.
The Shelter Pet Project: A public services campaign between the Ad Council, Maddie’s Fund and the Humane Society of the U.S. focused on helping to get shelter pets adopted. Through 2021, Maddie's Fund's total investment in this project is $5,969,774.91.
