Total Funding: $2M

Maddie's Fund® made its first Program Related Investment (PRI) in 2016 with a $2M investment in Shelterluv, a software company focused on building software for the next generation of animal shelters and rescue organizations. Its focus was to help shelter and rescue organizations manage every aspect of their rehoming process; from intakes to adoptions to community programs.

Shelterluv software serves brick & mortar shelters, foster-based rescue organizations and community programs with its tools.

In 2020, Shelterluv rolled out its free Field Services tool, a software solution for tracking all the work that field services or animal control officers (ACOs) do in the community. This tool allows shelters to track the many points of care that that ACOs perform to help quantify how their actions are resulting in less pets entering the shelter and more families being kept together.
