About Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC)
Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) provides animal regulation and care services which protect the health, public safety and welfare of people and animals in Milwaukee County.
MADACC rescues and assures safe, temporary shelter, veterinary and humane care for nearly 13,000 stray, unwanted, abandoned, mistreated and injured animals each year — more than any other animal 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 removes dangerous and stray animals from public areas providing effective animal control services by active enforcement of Wisconsin state statues pertaining to animal welfare.
MADACC is an organization charged with the responsibility of rescuing thousands of lost and homeless animals and animals suffering from cruelty, neglect and indifference.
Animal care and control facilities are often referred to derogatorily as "the pound" and are often one of the most misunderstood organizations in any community. Although their mission is to save lives, instances of irresponsible pet ownership require them to euthanize animals, and then they are faulted for doing so. These organizations don't have the luxury of shrinking from the life and death issues of animal welfare. They are the only animal welfare agency in any community that has to address the issue of pet euthanasia head on every minute of every day.
