Maddie's Fund: Building Community and Collaboration Against All Odds
Wei-Skillern, Jane
Publication date: 7/31/2015, pages 1-22

The Maddie's Fund case study focuses on the organization's collaborative philosophy and its system-level strategy of creating greater cohesiveness in the animal rescue movement that was fractured and had a history of "trashing and bashing." Unlike many other foundations, the Maddie's Fund has tried to create networks and collaboration across the animal welfare field as a whole with the goal of achieving a "no-kill nation" for American's companion animals (dogs and cats). The case protagonist is Rich Avanzino, largely regarded as the father of the no-kill ovement and the case ends with him leaving the organization and the future of Maddie's Fund.
