The Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) currently rescues and assures safe, temporary shelter, veterinary, and humane care for more than 11,000 stray, unwanted, abandoned, mistreated, and injured animals each year — more than any other animal control shelter in Wisconsin.
MADACC provides a central location for owners to find and recover their lost pets at 3839 W. Burnham St. in West Milwaukee and is open seven days a week, including evening hours on weekdays.
MADACC works with over 75 area shelters and rescue groups to place homeless animals into adoption programs so they have a second chance at finding a permanent, caring home. Dogs and cats that are eligible for placement but have not been taken in by a shelter or rescue group are available for adoption directly from MADACC.
MADACC also offers low-cost spay/neuter assistance, rabies vaccinations, and micro-chipping services.

Friends of MADACC
Friends of MADACC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of the animals in MADACC’s care, educating the public, and assisting the placement of adoptable animals.
We ensure that donations stay in Milwaukee County to help local homeless animals. Many of these animals are friendly, healthy, and highly adoptable, and our efforts help give them a second chance at finding permanent, loving homes.
Funds raised by our organization support:
- Facility improvements at MADACC, such as installing outdoor exercise kennels
- Educational programs like Battle Against Dogfighting (BAD)
- Spay/neuter programs to increase adoption placement for homeless animals and help reduce our local pet overpopulation problem
- Wellness programs that provide low-cost veterinary services including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and microchip clinics
