Friends of MADACC (Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting community awareness, improving the welfare of nearly 10,000 domestic animals MADACC cares for every year, and providing resources and education for community pets.

Friends of MADACC is managed by a board of directors and with the help of volunteers provides wellness programs that  focus on helping low income families keep their pets healthy; education programs that focus on educating the youth on the importance of treating their pet as a family member and resisting pressure to engage in acts of cruelty. Spay and neuter programs to help reduce the pet overpopulation in Milwaukee County.

Friends of MADACC uses its resources to provide an enriching environment for the animals during their stay at MADACC.

  • 15 outdoor kennels that are used for adoption events during the warmer months.

  • Facility improvements – a new outdoor exercise and play yard for the dogs to burn off energy and work on obedience.
