Become a MADACC Transfer Partner

Program Purpose

The goal of MADACC’s Animal Placement Program is to maximize and expedite the transfer of adoptable and potentially adoptable animals to shelters and breed placement groups. CURRENTLY MADACC IS ONLY ACCEPTING TRANSFER APPLICATIONS FROM GROUPS WHO WISH TO ONLY PULL DOGS OVER 40lbs, CATS, SMALL ANIMALS, REPTILES and FARM ANIMALS! NO EXCEPTIONS!

Eligibility Requirements for Program Partners

Program partners must submit a completed application, which includes information regarding veterinary services and adoption, sterilization and euthanasia policies. The application must be reviewed and approved by MADACC.

Program partners must have a mandatory spay/neuter policy for all adoptable animals (unless it is not recommended by a veterinarian for health reasons).

Program partners must provide proper housing and veterinary care for animals, and foster homes must follow licensing and limitations laws established by their local municipalities. Program partners must comply with all federal, state and local animal and animal welfare laws.

Program partners must agree that animals transferred from MADACC will not be used for experimental research, resale or commercial purposes, or for any use other than adoption as a companion animal (family pet, assistance, therapy or service animal).

Program partners must conduct a pre-adoption assessment with each individual(s) interested in adopting an animal(s)

Program partners will provide an adoption contract for adopters that require dogs and cats be sterilized, inoculated against rabies, licensed according to local and state laws and require the animal owner to abide by all state, county, and municipal ordinances regarding animal ownership.

Program partners must provide MADACC with the names and contact information of the agency representative(s) that are authorized to select, pull and transport animals. Only authorized representatives presenting a picture I.D. will be allowed to enter the MADACC shelter and perform these activities.

Program partners cannot pull animals for other organizations unless authorized by MADACC’s Shelter Supervisor.
