Maddie’s® Treatable Assistance Program
Treatable Assistance Program is a new pilot program for adoption guarantee
organizations in Alameda, Contra Costa and San Francisco Counties to support
the adoptions of senior and/or medically treatable homeless dogs and cats
originating from animal control shelters in those counties.
Maddie’s® Treatable Assistance Program provides adoption stipends of $700 per adoption of medically treatable or senior dogs and cats transferred from animal control shelters in Alameda, Contra Costa or San Francisco County and $1,400 per adoption of medically treatable and senior dogs and cats transferred from animal control shelters in Alameda, Contra Costa or San Francisco County. The program began in October 2012 and will run through December 31, 2013.
Maddie’s Fund is piloting the subsidy program to give local shelters and rescues the means to find more homes for vulnerable shelter pets, strengthen the relationship between animal control shelters and adoption guarantee groups, and shift some of the burden of responsibility for these pets away from cash-strapped government agencies.
