We are a NO-KILL small family rescue in Oakland, CA, an IRS-approved 501[c]3 non-profit, Breed Specific Animal Rescue. Our TAX ID# is 46-3585086. Mrs. Wren has been a vet-tech and dog/cat groomer for many years, involved with animal rescue work for 4 decades, and has specialized in rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing Yorkshire Terriers since 1995.
Wren Yorkie Rescue has participated in the Maddie’s Fund annual adoption events since 2010. Maddie’s Fund (www.maddiesfund.org) is a family foundation founded in 1994 by Workday co-founder Dave Duffield and his wife, Cheryl, who have endowed the Foundation with more than $300 million. Since then, they have awarded more than $153 million in grants toward increased community lifesaving, shelter medicine education, and pet adoptions across the U.S. The Duffields named Maddie’s Fund after their Miniature Schnauzer Maddie, who always made them laugh and comforted them during stressful business times when Dave was launching a startup software company. Maddie was with Dave and Cheryl from 1987-1997 and continues to inspire them today. #THANKSTOMADDIE Wren Yorkie Rescue rehomed 63 participating dogs during the May 30-31, 2015 event, and are SO grateful to the Duffields and their wonderful little furbaby.
