Maddie's Pet Project

Join Maddie’s® Foster Challenge for the chance to win $1,000

Are you a Nevada-based nonprofit animal welfare organization OR government animal control agency that has an existing foster program? Or are you looking to start one? If so, Maddie's® Pet Project in Nevada has a challenge for you!

Maddie’s® Foster Challenge wants to inspire your organization to begin, expand, or invigorate your foster care program — all to save more lives. Repond now to apply, then, If you are chosen to participate, your organization will receive $1,000, with the chance for a $5,000 prize at the close of the challenge. Here are the details:

Respond now to receive a short, one-page application that will assist us in determining if your organization is eligible to participate. The deadline to apply is June 11.
We review your application, then give you the go-ahead to participate.
You then create and implement a way to recruit more foster families. This could be a special recruitment event, targeted advertising, a social media campaign or something else — and the $1,000 grant can be used to help cover any costs. We’ll even provide tips and ideas for foster recruitment ideas!
Train your new foster families and begin placing animals in your care into their temporary homes.
Send us a final report that details how you recruited more foster families as well as some basic data — this is what could get you an additional $5,000 grant depending on how big the improvements were in your foster program. The deadline for the final report is July 31.

We’re looking for creative approaches – by engaging your staff, volunteers, and the community – to finding more foster homes so that more lives can be saved. We know such recruitment efforts can especially help organizations swimming in kittens! If we work together and share ideas, together we can save more cats and dogs in Nevada.

Respond now to get your application and get started! Deadline to apply is June 11. Deadline to complete project and submit final report is July 31.
