About the Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation
The Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation is a private charitable foundation based in Incline Village, Nevada. The Duffields are the founders of Maddie’s Fund, a leading animal welfare foundation dedicated to revolutionizing the status and well-being of companion animals. While the Duffields are long-time benefactors of companion animal causes, the Foundation also allows them to focus their philanthropic efforts in other areas they are passionate about, including supporting military veterans and giving back to their local community.

About Heaven Can Wait Animal Society
Heaven Can Wait Animal Society was founded as a non-profit in 2000 with the goal to eliminate the senseless, unnecessary killing of cats and dogs in Las Vegas area shelters by focusing on the critical need for high-volume low-cost targeted spay and neuter surgeries for companion animals and free-roaming cats, as well as providing educational programs and adoption opportunities.
