Thank you for contacting my office with your concerns regarding the staffing of the Milwaukee Area Animal Control Commission (MADACC). I appreciate your taking the time to share your thoughts with me.
I am dedicated to ensuring that the animals in the City of Milwaukee are safe, healthy and cared for and I commend MADACC for providing effective and cost efficient animal control services. As you know, MADACC represents 19 municipalities in Milwaukee County and their work assures temporary shelter is available, veterinary and humane care for animals in need is prioritized and a central location for owners to find and recover their lost pets is accessible to the public.
I have heard from a number of constituents who share your concerns over the future of MADACC. I want you to know that I have shared your message with the other participatory municipalities and MADACC staff. I am confident that the recently appointed Executive Director, Karen Sparapani, will demonstrate capable leadership during this transition and I urge you to welcome her perspective and continue participating in this discussion in a productive manner.
Again, thank you for sharing your thoughts with me. Your concern for this issue is admirable. Please do not hesitate to contact my office with any other issues you feel merit my attention.
