Fostering an animal from MADACC is one of the most important ways you can contribute to saving the lives of Milwaukee County’s neediest animals. MADACC’s foster care program is in place to provide temporary homes for animals that are waiting to find a permanent, loving home; awaiting a place within one of MADACC’s partner adoption programs; or in need of time to receive extra medical attention. Foster animals may also be too young for adoption, need special socialization or basic training, or require a quieter environment that MADACC can provide.

The foster program includes dogs and cats, and you can foster animals even if you have pets of your own.

Consider fostering and give MADACC’s animals one of the best possible chances of finding a forever home. Contact Kathy Shillinglaw at for more information.
