Quade Foundation is named in memory of a family member whose spirit and devotion demonstrated that animals in our dominion cannot be held accountable for right or wrong. It is our place to help them live a fulfilling, healthy, and safe a life as possible within the capabilities bestowed upon us and to never treat any part of them with contempt.

A Final Thought:

“Before humans die, they write their last will and testament, give their home and all they have to those they leave behind.

If, with my paws, I could do the same, this is what I’d ask:

To a poor and lonely stray I’d give my happy home; my bowl and cozy bed, soft pillow and all my toys; the lap, which I loved so much; the hand that stroked my fur; and the sweet voice that spoke my name.

I’d will to the sad, scared shelter dog the place I had in my human’s loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds.

So when I die, please do not say, ‘I will never have a pet again, for the loss and pain is more than I can stand.'

Instead, go find an unloved dog, one whose life has held no joy or hope, and give my place to him.

This is the only thing I can give…

The love I left behind.” ~ Anonymous

An Idea Is Born

Regardless of breed all dogs are created equal. Their genes make them different and its up to us as stewards of the animal kingdom to ensure they have a safe and fulfilling life and allow them to live out their full potential.

Even if it's "a face only a mother could love" it only shows that for every companion animal there is someone that can bring love to a shelter animal in need.
