Shelter animals are cared for every day of the year by a group of volunteers, and by the Animal Control Officer. 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 only accepts  animals that are surrendered or found stray in the Town of Mansfield.
