Regular Hours

General Info:
To provide animal regulation and care services which protect the health, public safety and welfare of people and animals in Milwaukee County. MADACC currently 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 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 rescues strays and removes dangerous 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. They are often one of the most misunderstood organizations in any community. Although their mission is to save lives, their community's irresponsible pet ownership requires 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.

Madacc deals with animals to the best of its abilities. It has a 7 day holding period for strays and then they are evaluated for temperment (that is one of the longest holding periods in the COUNTRY). That is when they decide to whether put the dog down because it is unadoptable or to hold it. If deemed adoptable, the humane society can recieve dogs from there or they are held in MADACC. They have a facebook page wit... view more

Worst Place On Earth

The staff here is lazy and rude. Every time you call or talk to them they act like they are doing you a favor. They treat people like garbage because their pets get lost. I have also known people who could not afford to pay all the hundreds of dollars in fees to get their pet back and madacc tells them they have to come up with it in 7 days or they will kill the animal, no payment plan or anything. I also used to fos... view more

MADACC is a KILLING Business!

The county of Milwaukee has a contract with all animal shelters in Milwaukee County saying that any animal brought in not as a ""personal surrender"", meaning it is your pet & you are turning it over, has to legally go through MADACC first. They tax the 19 municipalities of Milw. County based on the head count from each zip code, & the kill over 50% of pets brought in. They killed over 7,000 lost or adoptable pets in... view more

I went there looking for my missing cat, everyone there was very sympethic and helpful. They are doing an amazing job with the enourmous amounts of animals they have. I personally saw cats in small cages, and a room full of sick ones. I don't think we can blame Madacc for this, this is because we have an overpopulation of unwanted animals. If I ever had to surrender one of mine I would not take them there because o... view more

Horrible Place

Please people dont bring your animals there cause if animal is not claimed in 7 days they will put it to sleep. They will not be safe there bring them to the humane society where they will be safe.

Absolutely great!

Last fall, I adopted my cat, and had already made an appointment for her to be spayed. The same day, we found out she was pregnant. Cindy was very understanding, offered me options, and after all was said and done, my cat had kittens. My cat was spayed recently, and everything went extremely well. I have to say, this was exceptional service. About 5 yrs. ago, I wouldn't have said this, but there is now a differen... view more
