Rescue Spotlight: Milwaukee Pets Alive

Milwaukee Pets Alive (MPA) is a non-profit rescued group staffed by volunteers dedicated to ending the killing of homeless pets in Milwaukee. More than 6,500 homeless pets are euthanized in the Milwaukee area every year. The top priority of this organization “…is that all healthy, treatable and rehabilitatable animals at Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) achieve live outcomes.”  Milwaukee Pets Alive focuses on healthy, adoptable animals from Milwaukee Animal Control that have run out of options for getting out of animal control alive. These animals are placed into a loving foster home until a permanent home can be found through their website or adoption event.

If you live in the area and are interested in adopting, the Milwaukee Pets Alive website has a listing of animals available for adoption. If you see a dog or cat you are interested in, attend one of the MPA adoption events so you can meet and get to know your potential new pet. Finally, fill out the adoption application and pay the adoption fee which covers your pet’s vaccination, spay or neuter surgery, microchip and flea and de-worming treatments.

If you are not able to adopt but would still like to help, consider providing a temporary foster home for a pet in need. You can also volunteer to help MPA in other ways such as fundraising, helping at adoption events, adoption counseling, etc. This organization gratefully accepts your tax-deductible monetary donation, as well as donations of needed supplies such as pet food, toys, treats, towels and blankets, and cleaning supplies. PetMeds was proud to help support Milwaukee Pets Alive with a donation of pet supplies.
