Who We Are

Thank you Explore Marshfield!

WE HAVE A TEMPORARY HOME! Renovations are completed at 210 W 29th Street. We are very excited to begin our next step in helping abandoned animals for our community in an actual facility, but fundraising efforts will continue to build a permanent facility on our land on Downwind Drive.

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.
