Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in Milwaukee, WI – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.

The animals chosen for Pre-Select are highly desirable dogs and cats due to age, size, personality, and health. These animals were previously sent to other shelters out of the area, but due to a high demand for companion animals here in Milwaukee, it made more sense for MADACC to make these animals available for adoption.

You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a Milwaukee pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in Milwaukee is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a Milwaukee animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.Among these programs are the “FREE Ride Home” Program that provides one free ride home per year if an animal is picked up wearing a current license and has a current rabies vaccine (Milwaukee County residents only). We have developed a robust foster program for kittens that helps us have open space for incoming adult feline strays (always looking for more foster homes – click for more info). We also have a transfer program where adoptable animals are transferred to other adoption facilities throughout Wisconsin once their stray hold is complete. Finally, MADACC now offers a full-adoption program that is no longer limited to only cats and pit bull type dogs called the Pre-Select Program.
