Purr-fect Paws Cat & Kitten Adoption Event

June 6, 2011

The Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) will host a “Purr-fect Paws” Cat & Kitten Adoption Event on Saturday, June 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. MADACC is located at 3839 West Burnham Street in West Milwaukee.

 

This event will feature adoptable cats & kittens from MADACC and is a great way for people find a companion animal to add to their family. Staff and volunteers will be available to share information about the animal’s personality and behavior in order to make a good match for interested families.

 

The adoption fee for cats & kittens is $75 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. To view adoptable animals, visit www.petfinder.com/shelters/WI13.html. 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. Contact Marissa Saad at msaad@madacc.com to obtain an application.

 

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.

 

“In 2010, over 3,100 animals were placed into adoption programs. Over 450 animals were directly placed into new homes from MADACC. Events like our ‘Shelter Stars Showcase’ for dogs and ‘Purr-fect Paws’ for cats 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 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 pet and is open seven days a week, including evening hours on weekdays. MADACC also offers low-cost spay/neuter assistance, rabies vaccinations, and microchipping services.
