About Project Maddie


What would you do if you had to choose between feeding your beloved pet and feeding yourself? How would you make that choice?

This is a decision hundreds of pet owners across the Greater Toronto Area are forced to make each and every month. Some of them are seniors, some of them are living with disabilities, and some of them have been impacted by the decline in the economy. The one thing they all have in common is the love and devotion they have for their companion animals.

Project Maddie helps pet owners who are at risk of losing their pets by collecting and distributing donated quality pet food. This offers temporary relief to those who might otherwise have to sign a beloved companion over to an animal shelter. Project Maddie is a non-profit organization and we are in the process of applying for Registered Charity status. We receive no government funding and rely entirely upon our supporters to make sure help is available whenever and wherever it’s needed.

Project Maddie’s aim is simple:

Keeping people and pets together

    I am on ODSP and have a difficult time making ends meet everyday, for both my dog and myself. My dog Peekoo is a rescue dog ,whom I adopted 2 1/2 years ago from TAS. He is the love of my life! He has a sensitive tummy and only eats Science Hills Diet small bites Adult 1-6 Advanced Fitness dog food. Would you happen to have that available? He goes through 1 bag every 3 to 3 1/2 weeks. Many thanks. Marla & Peekoo

    Hi. My name is tina. I saw a progra!m on cp24 about your organization and was interested. How would I go about getting help from you guys. My fiance and I are both on social assistance and have difficulty most months in having enough money to feed our three cats. I have been urged on several occasions to “just get rid of them” but its something I could never do. Of the first two, one was born on my bed and the other was born under a couch in my moms house, and the third one (same cat parents as the first two) ended up going semi feral because their mom moved them outside for about six weeks before I got her ( it turns out that my mom had a black mold problem and the kittens mama moved out to under the deck with her second batch update of kittens — six at the time. Then my mom called animal control and lied to them saying she had stray cats on her property because she didn’t want to pay the humane society the $50/cat for the now seven cats she didn’t want). Cold I know. Anyways I have food right now but I know that before the end of the month is up I will most likely be out of food. I am unwilling to get rid of them and would rather not eat if it meant that they could eat for a day. Unfortunately at this time I do not have a phone with time on it. I can only be reached by email. I also have an app on my not working phone that allows me to make calls via the internet. But it is an American number that shows up on the call ID. If you could email me your contact info I would greatly appreciate it.
