MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) is waiving adoption fees for all adult cats starting June 1st and running through September 30th.

MADACC faces capacity challenges during the warmer months. Officials are now asking the community to consider adopting one of their many adult cats that were not reclaimed by their families and are now ready to join new families.

Waived adoption fees include spay/neuter surgery, microchip, and up-to-date vaccines. A $12 license fee will apply for all Milwaukee County residents. Kittens (under 5 months old) will be available for adoption for a $75 adoption fee. Adopters must complete in-person adoption counseling.

MADACC is able to hold this event after receiving a grant from an anonymous donor. These funds will be used to sterilize, vaccinate and microchip the adult cats making it possible for them to find new homes.

In order to expedite the adoption 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 your arrival at MADACC. You do not need to have an appointment to stop in and you can come in anytime MADACC is open to the public to see the adoptable cats available in our lobby. You can find the adoption application and more information on their website at madacc.org or call 414-649-8640.
