Grateful Dogs Rescue was proud to be part of the 2012 Maddie's® Pet Adoption Days. At the Third Annual Maddie's Matchmaker Adoptathon (http://www.maddiesadoptathon.org), held the weekend of June 9-10, 2012 in San Francisco, Alameda, and Contra Costa Counties, 2,601 dogs and cats found loving homes. 965 pets were older and/or dogs and cats who had been treated for a medical condition.
Maddie's® Community Shelter Data Grant supports the collection and publication of shelter statistics from community coalitions comprised of animal control agencies, traditional shelters and adoption guarantee organizations. Collecting shelter data in Maddie's® Asilomar Accords format enables coalitions to gather meaningful, standardized data to analyze and share results. It helps organizations track their lifesaving and develop plans to achieve and sustain an adoption guarantee for the healthy and treatable animals in their community. Here are the statistics from GDR that support these efforts.

About Maddie's® Pet Adoption Days
The goal of Maddie's® Pet Adoption Days is to give all healthy, senior and treatable shelter dogs and cats a second chance. Adoption of dogs and cats will be free to qualified adopters and in return, Maddie's Fund has set aside $4 million so it can give each shelter or rescue group $500 - $2,000 per adoption.*
Maddie's® Pet Adoption Days is held to increase awareness of shelter animals and their need for loving homes and to shed light on the tireless efforts of the shelters and rescue organizations across the country that work so hard to save the lives of countless dogs and cats every day. This adoption event honors the memory of the foundation's namesake, a Miniature Schnauzer named Maddie.
