MADACC cares for approximately 10,000 stray neglected, abandoned, and injured animals each year and your generous donations help keep them safe, healthy and comfortable.

MADACC is always happy to accept donations from the public. Canned cat food and dry dog and cat food are always our biggest needs year round. We cannot accept open bags of food, and suggest you bring those to Wildlife in Need in Oconomowoc for their wild animal patients.

MADACC also accepts financial donations that are put into our animal medical care fund for animals who need extraordinary care while in our facility and our spay/neuter fund that is used to give animals who are not reunited with their families a second chance and be put up for adoption.

Cage Comforters

The MADACC Cage Comforter Program enlists volunteer sewers to make small comforters and toys for the kittens, cats and small dogs in our care. Our animals love their comforters! The comforters not only ease the stress of our homeless animals, they also help to ease the transition when the animals are transferred, because they take their comforters with them to our animal placement partner organizations.

Because of the number of animals we care for each year, a great many comforters are needed. We are looking for volunteer sewers as well as donations of material, batting and thread. You can also make a monetary donation earmarked specifically for this project.

If you can help by sewing, donating or offering suggestions to make this program a success, please contact Kathy Shillinglaw at 414-649-8640.

Cage Comforters Specifications and Instructions:

Comforters can be made from any type of material except looped fabric like chenille or terry cloth that might get snagged in the animal’s nails. They should be a finished size of:

Cat Cage Comforter/Blanket Sizes

Cat Condos 27″ x 27″ (We need Kuranda Cat Beds, too! Order here)

Cat Front Lobby Condos

Sleeping Area: 10″ X 24.5″

Play Area: 28.25″ X 24.5″

Thank you for creating a gift of comfort for a homeless animal in desperate need. You have increased her chances of adoption by helping her to relax so she can put on her best face for potential transfers.



Want to be more involved in helping provide resources for the animals at MADACC? Consider joining Friends of MADACC (FOM).

FOM supports a network of volunteers that provide educational programs, training, foster care, dog walking and cat socialization to enhance the quality of life of animals at MADACC. Their goal is to increase the number of animals transferred or adopted from MADACC and prevent animal cruelty and neglect.

They ensure that donations stay in Milwaukee County to help local homeless animals.  Many of these animals are friendly, healthy, and highly adoptable, and our efforts give them a second chance at finding permanent, loving homes.  Funds raised by FOM support:

– Facility improvements at MADACC, such as installing outdoor exercise kennels

– Educational programs like Battle Against Dogfighting (BAD)

– Spay/neuter programs to increase adoption placement for homeless animals and help reduce our local pet overpopulation problem

– Wellness programs that provide low-cost veterinary services including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and microchip clinics
