What is Friends of MADACC?
Friends of MADACC (FoM) is the non-profit fundraising arm of MADACC. FoM provides wellness programs that focus on helping families keep their pets healthy; community education around treatment of pets and resisting pressure to engage in acts of cruelty; and financial support to help MADACC best care for the our community's stray and abandoned animal population.
FoM is run by a volunteer-based board of individuals, dedicated to community engagement and support!
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.
Public Education and Support
We work within our community to provide the support and resources that allow families to keep their pets safe, happy and healthy.
