Who We Are

Located in Marshfield, Wisconsin, the Marshfield Area Pet Shelter is a 501(c)3 non-profit volunteer based organization actively engaged in raising funds to build a permanent humane shelter for the greater Marshfield area. MAPS is currently operating out of a temporary home on W 29th Street and at our Adoption Center located inside the Marshfield Mall. Open hours at the Adoption Center are Monday - Friday from 4:30-6:00 and Saturday from 11:00-2:00. Currently, we do not have open hours at our intake shelter on 29th Street, but appointments can be scheduled to meet our adoptable pets once we receive an approved adoption application.

We rely heavily on donations to help animals in need. We believe all animals deserve this chance. We receive no city, state or federal funding, nor any funding from national or regional humane societies or associations. The future success of our shelter relies solely on private donations. Please consider a donation to MAPS and make a difference in the life of a homeless pet.
