Featured Shelter Pet: Mocha

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.

Mocha sit 2018


Do you like long, leisurely walks in the sun? Snuggling on the couch when it’s raining or cold? Need a natural stress reducer (and like giving belly rubs)? If you answered yes, then Mocha could be the dog for you!!

Mocha is a gentle and laid back 9 year old, spayed, female, pit mix. She absolutely loves everyone but she is selective when choosing her doggie friends. Although she lived with another dog before coming to the shelter, we are looking for a home where she would be the only pet.

 Due to her reaction to some dogs, an experienced dog owner would be preferable, and she will not be adopted to a family with young childen. Come to the shelter during visitation hours to meet Mocha - she could be the next great love of your life.

Why Your Donations Are So Important

    Mansfield Shelter Friends, a non-profit organization, pays for all veterinary expenses; the town does not cover veterinary expenses. Funding for veterinary expenses comes from your donations, fundraisers, and adoption fees.

    Animals that enter the shelter are examined by a vet before they are eligible for adoption. The animals are updated on vaccinations, tested for various diseases, and neutered or spayed if necessary. Additional veterinary care, well beyond the basic vaccinations and spay/neutering, is frequently provided. Animals often require medications, lab work, dental care, and sometimes specialists.

    Mansfield Shelter Friends, Inc. is very grateful to all the people who donate so generously. Fundraising is essential for us to provide the best care for the cats and dogs to make them healthy, adoptable pets. By sending in your checks you make a difference in the care we can provide for the animals.
