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!

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
