Friends of MADACC 2-Year Anniversary

Join Friends of MADACC at a special event at O’Brien’s Pub (49th & Vliet) on April 2 at 7 pm.

This event is sponsored by WisconsinWags.com, who graciously donated a barrel of beer for the event. $10 admission gets you a wristband for free beer while supplies last! Learn about how you can volunteer, adopt local homeless animals, and support projects like Operation Sunshine, a project to build outdoor exercise kennels at MADACC’s animal care and control facility on 38th & Burnham.

At the event FOM will celebrate the two year anniversary of its volunteer program. MADACC’s volunteer program started with one laundry helper and has since grown in just two years to include dog walking, cat socializing, fundraising, foster/adoption, community outreach, and dog training. Through volunteer efforts, over 450 local, homeless animals were placed into new homes.

Friends of MADACC (Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting community awareness and improving the welfare of the nearly 13,000 homeless animals MADACC cares for every year. FOM is 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 adopted from MADACC and prevent animal cruelty and neglect. FOM ensures 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.
