Mansfield Animal Shelter, Mansfield, Massachusetts
Last Update: 10/6/15


Featured Shelter Pet: Gizmo

Although ALL the pets at Mansfield Animal Shelter deserve loving homes, there are some animals that we especially hope will find homes soon. These animals have either been at the shelter too long (any amount of time in a cage is too long) or don't adjust well to shelter life. Please consider giving a home to these special pets.


A Special Cat
Who Needs A Special Owner

Such a gentle, affectionate boy! Gizmo is a large, extremely sweet cat. Gizmo is a five year old male who lived with one owner since kittenhood, but was surrendered because of his owner’s health problems. His former owner said Gizmo loves to cuddle, be petted, sit on laps, and sleep in bed with you.

Gizmo is back at the shelter after recovering from a bladder infection, and he has improved tremendously.  He is on a special diet of only wet food. Gizmo will need a special home where the owner understands his needs. Whoever adopts Gizmo will get one of the sweetest cats ever!

We could use your help.
Adults are Especially Needed.

The Mansfield Animal Shelter is one of the most active shelters in Southeastern Massachusetts. The shelter has one of the highest adoption rates and an excellent reputation.

With the exception of the Animal Control Officer, shelter animals are cared for every day of the year by a group of volunteers. Veterinary expenses are paid for by your donations and adoption fees, not by the Town of Mansfield, through the non-profit Mansfield Shelter Friends, Inc.

The shelter accepts only animals that are surrendered or found stray in the Town of Mansfield.

Thank You for Your Donations!!!

Mansfield Shelter Friends, Inc. is very grateful to all the people who donate so generously. By sending in your checks you have made a difference in the care we can provide for the animals.

Although we would like to concentrate on the animals, not on money, fundraising is essential to achieving our goals in caring for the animals. Your donations help volunteers give shelter animals the veterinary care they need. Since the Town of Mansfield does not pay for veterinary expenses, Mansfield Shelter Friends uses donations and adoption fees to cover animals' medical expenses.
