Your donations to the
Mansfield Shelter Friends
are used for the care of the animals.

You can use PayPal


Mansfield Animal Shelter accepts surrendered dogs and cats only from Mansfield residents.
Proof of residency is required.

When a stray or surrendered animal enters the shelter, if it is not up to date with vaccinations, it is kept in quarantine until it receives a medical examination by a veterinarian, and vaccinations. Stray animals are not available for adoption for 10 days, giving owners time to claim them.  There is a small fee charged when owners come to collect their pets.  The shelter uses these fees to feed and care for the animals.

The Fees

A fee of $20 for a dog or cat is requested; however, no pet will be turned away because of an owner's inability to pay. If you have current veterinary records for your pet, we request that you bring them with your pet. If your pet is not up to date with vaccinations, and you are able to have your pet vaccinated for rabies and distemper, and combo tested, we would greatly appreciate it.

Additional donations help to offset a portion of the cost of caring for your pet and others. All incoming pets will be vaccinated and spayed or neutered if necessary.

The Process

Please allow enough time to properly relinquish your pet. The admissions process may take 20 minutes. We will request some background information about your pet, and ask you to fill out a questionnaire telling us about your pet and his or her time with you. This helps us place your pet in an appropriate home. It would be helpful to the volunteers if you call the shelter before bringing you pet in, so that they can prepare a cage.
