There are many opportunities in the Milwaukee area to volunteer. The major shelters and animal protection associations always need help as does the Milwaukee County Zoo and many small shelters throughout southeast Wisconsin.
The Wisconsin Humane Society processes thousands of animals every year. Each need to be fed, cages cleaned, and medications administered. The staff could not do this alone. They need the help of the community to maintain these animals.
There are several areas to help at the Wisconsin Humane Society. Some opportunities are greeting, phone information, dog walking, small animal maintenance, dog walking, wildlife, and facility maintenance.
The Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) is always looking for volunteers. They care for more than 11,000 animals a year and offer many avenues for people to help. They require that volunteers are 18 years of age or older. MADACC has an online volunteer form and require the attendance at their training program.
The Milwaukee County Zoo also has a volunteer staff. With their vast population of animals from around the world, volunteers are a necessary part of their organization. Their main focus is the well-being of the animals and the education of the community about the animals and conservation.
There are also many small shelters located in and around the Milwaukee area. They too need help.
These agencies could not function without the help of volunteers. There are just too many animals.
