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.
