Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control (MADACC) has killed 2833 animals so far this year. (This does not include those that died in their kennel, were dead on arrival, or were owner-requested euthanasia).
Four birds, 1713 cats, 1069 dogs and 47 other animals died at MADACC. The charts below show comparisons from last year to this year and also the breakdown of the July statistics. As you can see, in July 2012 alone, MADACC killed 499 cats and 205 dogs.
The key to solving the problem is knowing that there is a problem. If you did not know that MADACC had such a high death rate for animals in Milwaukee County please share this blog post with your friends and neighbors.
