Doris Day Animal Foundation's (DDAF) mission to help animals and the people who love them. We fund nonprofit causes that need assistance in their work, caring for and protecting animals. In addition to assisting numerous organizations with various programs, such as spay/neuter, veterinary expenses, seniors programs, pet food pantries, wildlife rehabilitation and educational resources, some of DDAF's “legacy” project funding includes World Spay Day, the Doris Day Equine Center (located at Cleveland Amory's Black Beauty Ranch in Murchison, Texas), the Duffy Day Life Saving Program (giving a second chance to older and injured animals that may otherwise face euthanasia), the Doris Day/Terry Melcher Scholarship at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and many others.
