April 26th is Maddie’s birthday – she’s the little miniature schnauzer who inspired the Duffield family to start Maddie's Fund, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary helping animal shelters and rescue groups across the nation save more cats and dogs. https://youtu.be/zsI6GaCphxk
Maddie’s® Pet Project in Nevada has had a big first year.
