Thanks to Maddie's Fund, ‘Dogs Playing for Life’ receives $50K to expand shelter dog enrichment

Maddie’s Fund, a national family foundation based in Pleasanton, Calif, awarded Dogs Playing for Life $50,000 to expand the reach of their lifesaving education program model to 10 additional at-risk animal shelters across the nation.

This program provides behavioral health enrichment for shelter dogs in the form of playgroups. DPFL will deliver educational seminars for not only the shelter staff and volunteers at these 10 locations, but also to all the neighboring rescue groups’ and shelters’ staff and volunteers, for maximum lifesaving impact within a community.

DPFL, a non-profit organization that has worked with over 150 shelters in the U.S. and Canada, is leading an industry-wide shift to incorporate daily playgroups and enrichment for dogs as a standard of care.
