stray animals should be brought to MADACC to give
the owner the opportunity to claim their lost pet.
If an animal is wearing identification or a
microchip is found during scanning, attempts will
be made immediately to contact owners.
Long Does MADACC Hold Animals?
Under law, stray animals are sheltered for a
minimum of 7 days.
If unclaimed after the 7 day hold, the
animals are evaluated for health and temperament
and offered to local shelters, breed placement
groups or euthanized as a last resort.
Happens To The Animals?
- Upon admittance, animals are scanned for a
microchip, given a health exam, dewormed and
vaccinated, given food, water and clean bedding,
and if a stray animal, its photograph is posted
onto MADACC’s website,
- All adoptable or potentially adoptable animals
that have completed their stray hold period and
were not claimed by their owner are offered to our
animal placement partners.
