Interested in making your community more humane?

MADACC has proposed ordinances geared toward creating a safer, more humane community to the 19 municipalities in Milwaukee County. Click here to read the one geared toward dog owners. Click here to learn about proposed TNR (trap-neuter-release) for feral cats. You may love them as presented. You many like them but want some changes. You may hate them and think that things are great. The point is, your municipality needs to hear from YOU the residents! MADACC can make suggestions just as any other government department. They will not be adopted or have something else adopted unless residents get involved! Read our press release here. Get involved!


Purrfect MKE Program

Each spring MADACC sees an influx of homeless cats in search of homes. To help reduce overcrowding in the shelter, Friends of MADACC waives adult cat adoption fees from June 1st – October 31st of each year.

There are many ways you can help the homeless felines of Milwaukee. Here are ways you can help:

Foster: MADACC is always looking for fosters to help reduce crowding at the shelter and to care for cats with high medical needs. Learn more about fostering.

Volunteer: Volunteer for MADACC at the shelter or volunteer for Friends of MADACC and help at our fundraising and outreach events.

Social Media: Share our posts on Facebook, follow us on Instagram, and show your pride with FOM’s new Purrfect MKE Facebook profile frame.

Pit Bull Proud

The Pit Bull Proud adoption program was created in 2014 to increase the number of Pit Bulls adopted into loving, forever homes. Pit Bull type dogs make up 45% of the homeless and neglected dogs brought into MADACC each year.

In 2018, Friends of MADACC revamped the program. Instead of subsidizing adoption fees, FOM will now provide our pit bulls with a welcome home kit to take home with them to their new family! The kit includes an easy walk harness, toys, and our new Pit Bull Proud sticker and bandanna. In addition to this,  an awareness campaign is run from June to October to showcase MADACC’s pit bull pride and raise awareness for these dogs. This campaign culminates with FOM’s Annual Pit Bull Awareness Day towards the end of October.

Weekenders Club

Do you want the love and companionship of a dog, but have only limited time to commit? Want to test drive a dog for the weekend before adopting? Want to make a difference in the life of an animal by having a weekend sleepover visit and letting us know what a dog is like in a home to help them find their perfect family? If you have answered YES to any of these questions, the MADACC Weekenders program is for you! Click the badge to learn more.
