Homeward Bound Adoption Event!

MADACC will be hosting their “Homeward Bound” dog adoption events each Saturday, June through September, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Each year MADACC takes in thousands of stray and abandoned dogs, and in 2013, 45% of those dogs were pit bull terriers or pit bull mixes. In honor of those 45%, MADACC will offer a discounted adoption fee of $45 for pit bull terriers and mixes adopted June through October. The dog adoption fee is typically $100 the remainder of the year.

All MADACC dog adoptions include up to date age-appropriate vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, microchipping (including registration), heartworm testing, and flea/worm treatment. There is also an additional $12 fee to license a dog over five months old that will reside in Milwaukee County.

MADACC works with over 75 area shelters and rescue groups to place animals into adoption programs so they have a second chance at finding a permanent, caring home. Many of the dogs and cats that are eligible for placement but have not yet been taken in by a shelter or rescue group are available for adoption directly from MADACC.

To view some of the animals available for adoption, visit www.petfinder.com/shelters/WI13.html. Potential adopters can “pre-qualify” by completing an adoption application in advance at www.madacc.org/adoptions.htm and emailing it to adopt@madacc.org. Applications can also be filled out at MADACC, Mon. – Fri., 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sat. – Sun., 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
