MADACC to Host “Pit Bull Proud” Dog Adoption Events

Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission will be hosting “Pit Bull Proud” dog adoption events each Saturday, June through September, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Weather permitting, adoptable dogs will be outside in fresh air kennels waiting to meet potential adopters and to soak up sun. 

Each year MADACC takes in thousands of stray and abandoned dogs, and in 2014, 45% of those dogs were pit bull terriers or pit bull mixes so MADACC has decided to offer the pit bulls for adoption for only $45. Normally it costs $75 to adopt an adult dog from MADACC. 

In addition to the reduction in fee, adopters will also receive a voucher for free manners class at the Wisconsin Humane Society. 

All MADACC dog adoptions include up to date age-appropriate vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, microchipping, 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.
