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 building a permanent facility for the greater Marshfield area. Construction on a new shelter at 3500 Downwind Drive began in September. MAPS is currently operating out of a temporary home at 210 W 29th Street and at our Adoption Center (cats only) located inside 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.
Kennel License Number: 411672

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 on private donations. Please consider a donation to MAPS and make a difference in the life of a homeless pet.
