MADACC to Host ‘Purr-fect Paws’ Cat & Kitten Adoption Event

Aug. 10, 2011

The Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) will host another “Purr-fect Paws” Cat & Kitten Adoption Event on Saturday, August 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. MADACC is located at 3839 West Burnham Street in West Milwaukee.

 

The adoption event will feature approximately 20 adoptable kittens and cats from MADACC. There will also be photos and bios of additional kittens and cats available for adoption but not featured for viewing during the event. Staff and volunteers will be available to share information about the animals’ personality and behavior in order to make a good match for interested families.

 

The adoption fee for cats and kittens is $75 (or two for $125) and includes age-appropriate vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip, Felv/FIV testing, and treatment for fleas/worms. There is also an additional $12 fee to license a cat over 5 months old who will reside in Milwaukee County.

 

Those interested in adopting can “prequalify” by completing an adoption application in advance. If approved, the cat/kitten can be taken home the same day of the event. Stop in at MADACC before the event to complete an application. MADACC is open Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

 

This time of year, MADACC and other shelters are overwhelmed with kittens and cats, making it a great time of year to adopt a new companion. At MADACC’s first cat adoption event in June, 16 kittens and cats were adopted by families or placed into a rescue or shelter’s adoption program.

 

“In 2010, over 3,100 animals were placed into adoption programs. Over 450 animals were directly placed into new homes from MADACC. Adoption events help connect people looking to add a new companion animal to their family with some of Milwaukee County’s neediest animals,” says Kevin Wilken, MADACC’s shelter supervisor.

 

MADACC works with over 75 area shelters and rescue groups to place animals into adoption programs so they have a second chance at finding a permanent, caring home. All animals are evaluated by MADACC staff to assess their health and temperament before being eligible for the placement program. 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 currently rescues and assures safe, temporary shelter, veterinary and humane care for over 13,000 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 and is open seven days a week, including evening hours on weekdays. MADACC also offers low-cost spay/neuter assistance, rabies vaccinations and micro-chipping services.
