Volunteer at MADACC

Volunteering at your local animal shelter is a meaningful way to make a difference in the lives of homeless animals in your community. MADACC offers a wide variety of volunteer positions to help improve the lives of the over 11,000 animals per year that enter the shelter.

MADACC asks that volunteers commit to a volunteer position and schedule for 6 months or more. This commitment is necessary because it takes time and resources to properly train volunteers. In addition, the animals in the shelter need you and depend on you!


Steps to becoming a MADACC volunteer:

  1. Complete the ONLINE VOLUNTEER APPLICATION FORM. Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older!

  2. Attend a volunteer orientation session. Once your application has been accepted into our database, you will be invited to a scheduled New Volunteer Orientation.

  3. Complete Tier 1 duties - laundry, dishes, and general cleaning - to become familiar with shelter operations.

  4. Based on the needs of MADACC and your availability, train for a specific volunteer position. See below for potential volunteer opportunities.

    MADACC also has a limited adoption program that focuses on the two neediest populations in the shelter - kittens, cats and Pit Bull type dogs. MADACC utilizes volunteer foster homes around Milwaukee County while these animals await adoption to loving, forever homes. If you are interested in fostering for MADACC, please complete the FOSTER CARE APPLICATION.
