WEST MILWAUKEE — Have you been thinking about getting a cat?

There are about 150 cats in the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission’s shelter and hundreds more in foster care.

All stray cats in Milwaukee County are cared for by MADACC, according to the commission’s news release.

To encourage adopters to adopt from Milwaukee, MADACC is doing a promotion called #Meowaukee, in which all adoption fees are waived for cats 6 months and older. This program is sponsored by Friends of MADACC.

Adoption fees for adult cats are waived, and kitten adoption fees are $100. Adults are 6 months and older.

Milwaukee County residents must purchase a $12 license for animals 5 months and older. MADACC encourages people to bring a cat carrier or they can buy a box for $5.

All adoptable cats are vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, and spayed/neutered. Click here to see adoptable animals.

Potential adopters can “prequalify” by completing an adoption application in advance on MADACC’s website.

Applications also can be filled out at MADACC. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Adoption hours are from 1 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. MADACC is at 3839 W. Burnham St
