Empty the shelter: MADACC to waive all dog, cat adoption fees Oct. 12

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) is looking to empty their shelter by waiving adoption fees for all dogs and cats on Saturday, October 12.

More than 125 cats and 20 dogs will be available for adoption at MADACC’s adoption event. There will be kittens, cats and dogs available for potential adopters to choose from. Waived adoption fees include spay/neuter surgery, microchip, and up-to-date vaccines. A $12 license fee will apply for all Milwaukee County residents. Adopters must complete in-person adoption counseling.

The one-day event hopes to create space for hundreds of dogs and cats expected to enter the shelter's care throughout October and November. 

“Our goal on October 12th is to find wonderful homes for each and every healthy, adoptable dog and cat in our facility,” said Karen Sparapani, executive director for MADACC. “If you have been thinking about adding a feline or canine companion to your home, now is the time! Not only will your adoption fee be waived, but you will find a new best friend and save a life.”

MADACC's Empty the Shelter Day Adoption Event will take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

In order to expedite the process and cut down on wait times, MADACC is encouraging interested adopters to complete a free and non-binding adoption application for pre-approval ahead of the event. You can find the adoption application and more information by CLICKING HERE.
