Friends of MADACC proudly offers the Cheesehead Program, which helps lovable dogs from MADACC find their forever homes. These dogs have been at MADACC longer than others by no fault of their own – so their adoption fees are reduced to $25 thanks to Friends of MADACC!

All animals available for adoption include:

  • Up-to-date with all age appropriate vaccinations
  • Spay or neuter surgery
  • Microchip (includes registration)
  • Heartworm testing
  • Treatments for fleas/worms as needed

Fill out an adoption application here to become an approved adopter and meet your Cheesehead.
