open board positions
If you are passionate about animal welfare and see yourself as a leader, a chair on the FoM Board might be for you. Board chairs are responsible for strategic oversight of all activities, managing the operations of the organization and overseeing committee and volunteer work. Board members spend between 2-10 hours per week on Friends of MADACC, not including monthly board meetings and other events. (Note: Chair positions are unpaid)
If you have an interest in raising awareness, advancing the wellbeing of animals, helping people and like working from the comfort of your own home, we would love to hear from you!
We have project work in marketing/graphic design, outreach/resource help, and fundraising. We are always looking for people who have specialized skills and experience in these areas but prior experience is not a requirement.
Don't see your skillset listed, but would still like to help? If you have a passion for helping animals, we would love to talk with you! Reach out to email@example.com or fill out our volunteer form, and let us know how you think you can help!
By volunteering your time and skills to FoM initiatives, you'll help families and their pets receive veterinary and pet supply resources in the community; enrich the lives of animals at MADACC, increase the number of adoptions from MADACC, and provide free spay and neuter solutions for animals in Milwaukee County.
Friends of MADACC offers many opportunities to get contribute, including hands-on volunteering and board positions. Learn more about our established opportunities below - but feel free to reach out directly if you think you have a skill set that we could use!

FoM is 100% volunteer-based, so all of the funds we receive are used directly to help animals in our community!
Help our organization be able to continuously provide resources and supplies to those in underserved areas of Milwaukee County by purchasing an item from our Amazon Wishlist.
Select Friends of MADACC as an AmazonSmile Charity when you shop on Amazon for your everyday purchases, and our organization will receive a percentage of the proceeds, which allows us to continue providing critical services to pets in our community.
MADACC is always happy to accept donations from the public. Canned cat food and dry dog and cat food are always their biggest needs year round. They cannot accept open bags of food, and suggest you bring those to Wildlife in Need in Oconomowoc for their wild animal patients.
