MAPS serves up warm food for cold noses
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD — On Friday, Sept. 30, Marshfield Area Pet Shelter (MAPS) held its fifth annual Cold Noses/Warm Hearts fundraising dinner at Hotel Marshfield. The event featured food, raffle baskets, silent auction items, and an update on MAPS’ progress.
The funds raised will be used to provide housing and care for approximately 400 animals MAPS takes in annually. MAPS is the first humane organization serving lost and homeless animals in the Marshfield area.
“We are so grateful for the community’s continued support of our cause,” said MAPS President Karen Rau. “The generosity of our donors and the dedication of our volunteers is incredible.”
With MAPS assuming the city contract for stray cats and plans to care for stray dogs in the near future, Rau added that continued financial support is needed as MAPS grows.
“Every dollar makes a difference,” she said.
MAPS will be hosting two microchip clinics at its Adoption Center in the Marshfield Mall on Oct. 22 and Nov. 12 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information visit www.MarshfieldPetShelter.org or call 715-486-5140.
