Who We Are

Friends of MADACC (Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting community awareness and improving the welfare of the nearly 13,000 homeless animals MADACC cares for every year.

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

We 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 our organization 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
