Maddie's Pet Forum - Animal Welfare Conversations 24/7

Lifesaving is unstoppable when we put our heads together.

What is Maddie's® Pet Forum?

Maddie’s Pet Forum is the online community for shelters, rescue organizations, volunteers, fosters, and adopters to share information, resources and expertise.

Do you have a challenge and want to avoid spending precious time and energy trying to solve it? Why re-invent the wheel? Often times, a solution to a problem has already been found. Maddie’s Pet Forum enables you to ask a question or start a discussion with fellow animal lovers across the country. The forum is always open so you can post 24/7.

The forum is a place to keep in touch as well as a place to meet people with similar concerns and interests. Keep the conversation going after conferences end or stay up to date on what’s happening on the ground floor from people like you who work every day to save pet lives.

"The forum is an excellent platform, it’s an opportunity to ask questions to people who are most likely to have the answers. It’s also a great learning tool for things I didn’t know that I didn’t know.” - Kim Kamins, Fearless Kitty Rescue (AZ)
