dc.description.abstractThis news item from 'Scopes Magazine is about: Tommy has had it rough. The silver-coated, semi-feral cat suffered a leg fracture so serious that the shelter veterinarians working with him had no choice but to amputate his limb. Twenty years ago, Tommy would not have survived. Viewed as a nuisance and public health hazard, he would have died in the wild or been euthanized. Today, Tommy and millions of shelter animals like him receive care, comfort, and a chance at finding a forever home thanks to the groundbreaking efforts of Maddie’s Fund®, a $300 million family foundation established in 1994 by David A. Duffield ’62 (Engineering), MBA ’64, and his wife Cheryl in honor of their beloved Miniature Schnauzer, Maddie.
