Another month, another promotion to save lives! Friends of MADACC has generously committed to waiving adoption fees on adult cats and most dogs to help us keep our population moving through for October. A full shelter is one where disease and stress can hurt the animals. The sooner we get them back with their family or into a new family, the happier and healthier they are. Remember that dogs are dogs. They do dog things. They can chase smaller animals, they can chew your favorite things, they might even foul your carpet. But, they do these things because they are dogs. Goofy, weirdos that will only be as good as we teach them and guide them to be. Cats? Well, they are our overlords and we are their servants. But, how much must we all love them to let them poop in a box in the house and clean it lovingly? Adopt if you can! Foster if you are able! Share our adoptable animals!

Short and long term fosters NEEDED! Click HERE for more info!

From a weekend out of the shelter, to socializing kittens until surgery and adoption, to helping us learn about the personality of a shy animal – we have a foster option for you! Fosters also get to be first in line to adopt their temporary roommate, or to find a home for them via your friends and family. We need help every day to ensure all animals can find a second chance and our fosters are a critical part of that! See what opportunities are available.
