Reduce Intake at MADACC
Our ultimate goal is to keep pets in homes by providing vet, educational and training resources for families who are having a difficult time with behavioral or medical issues. Avoiding pet surrender is the best way to reduce shelter populations.
Increase Adoptions at MADACC
We work closely with MADACC to educate the public about the shelter's adoption program, advertise adoption events and fund low- and no-cost adoption promotions.
Through financial support from FoM, MADACC's staff spends their days providing the best possible environment for animals while they wait for their current/future owners.
