A Richmond spay-neuter clinic that was temporarily closed in April has shared good news about its fundraising efforts toward reopening.
Fix Our Ferals announced it has $100,000 left in its goal of raising $250,000 for the reopening of a sustainable clinic at 12226 San Pablo Ave.
And it just learned that Maddie’s Fund, a family foundation created in 1994 by Workday co-founder Dave Duffield and his wife, Cheryl, has pledged to match every donation made toward the clinic for up to $50,000 through Oct. 15.

In a Facebook statement, Fix Our Ferals officials said they are “thrilled” with the Maddie’s Fund pledge.
Fix Our Ferals has offered affordable spay-neuter services in the East Bay since 1998, helping to humanely reduce the cat population in Alameda and Contra Costa counties and to spread the word about trap-neuter-return (TNR).
In July 2012, it opened its Richmond spay-neuter clinic and has since “fixed” nearly 20,000 East Bay felines. In April, a lack of funds forced its temporary closure while the clinic reorganizes into a “high-quality, high-volume” operation that’s more sustainable.
“In our absence, many cat caretakers and TNR volunteers are unable to access spay-neuter that they can afford,” Fix our Ferals officials said. “Therefore we are working hard to re-open as soon as possible.”
