Covid19 Operation Updates

March 26th Update

Starting on March 29th, MADACC hours will be changing temporarily due to the “Safer at Home” act. MADACC will be open to reclaims and stray intake from 10 am -5 pm. We plan on maintaining these hours until May 26th. MADACC is an essential service, so we must remain open to serve Milwaukee County.

MADACC will continue to do adoptions from 11-4, seven days a week, with the exception of being closed on Easter Sunday. When adopters arrive they will be able to ring the bell for entry. We are limiting the number of adoptions occurring at one time to promote social distancing and disease transmission. We ask that prior to leaving the house, you check MADACC’s website to make sure there are animals you are interested in adopting available.

MADACC will continue to serve the community for all animal control services. We have suspended public surgeries and vaccines until further notice.

We are looking for donations to support the animals at MADACC. You can donate directly to MADACC here:… using Amazon.

The MADACC staff appreciate the public’s support during this difficult time.

March 16th Update

In order to comply with CDC, AVMA and other State and local guidelines to maintain public health and safety, MADACC’s lobby will remain open for stray intake and reclaims and adoptions ONLY. Our doors will be locked and all visitors will be required to ring our bell to have a staff member assist them. While staffing levels permit, MADACC will continue to pick up animals in the field. Should staffing levels diminish, we will only pick up animals in urgent cases (sick, injured and assisting law enforcement).

Until further notice, please renew dog and cat licenses online:

Normal weekly vaccine clinics and public spay/neuter surgeries are being canceled until further notice.

Please do not bring in donations in person.

We are temporarily NOT accepting gently used supplies/softgoods (blankets, towels, toys, etc). While we appreciate your support, we are unable to accept these items.

If you would like to donate, you can send donations from Amazon:

We are also in need of fosters for adoptable animals due to the likelihood that adopters will not be here in the numbers we need. Both dogs and cats will need some temporary housing. Click here to learn about fostering.

Thank you for your support.


MADACC Kitten Intake 2020

Follow the MADACC Kitten Tracker and see how many kittens are being brought in due to human irresponsibility. If your indoor/outdoor cat is not sterilized, or you are feeding outdoor cats that breed, you are contributing to this high number every year. It is so important to have your cat sterilized. There are so many cats that need homes and every shelter is inundated all summer and fall. It is up to you to get these cats sterilized. Contact MADACC for sterilization options today!
