Free turkey dinner for cat adopters

MILWAUKEE - The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) and the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) announced a joint promotion beginning today and running through the end of November. Together, they hope to find homes for 600 cats this month.

All cat and kitten adopters will go home with a free can of turkey-flavored cat food for their new companion, courtesy of General Pet Supply, and adoption fees for adult cats one year or older are entirely waived.

“Many families decide that this time of year is the perfect time to bring home a new family member. We want our animals to get the opportunity to be one of those lucky animals, and we are hoping to make that happen for 600 cats and kittens this November,” said Karen Sparapani, executive director at MADACC.

Although they are different organizations, WHS and MADACC experience similar peaks in animal intake, and know that working together on joint promotions helps to find homes for animals faster. More than 120 cats and kittens are available for adoption right now, as November is one of the busiest times of the year for area shelters. 

Waived adult cat adoptions include spay/neuter surgery, a microchip and vaccines. Adopters complete in-person adoption counseling per the usual process.  A $12 license fee will apply for all Milwaukee County residents at MADACC.

“If you’re on the fence about adopting, this is the time to take the plunge,” said Angela Speed, vice president of communications at WHS.
