Marshfield Area Pet Shelter will host its first “Whiskers & Wags” fundraiser at Hotel Marshfield. Featuring the theme “MAPS Uncorks The Wine,” the event will consist of wine tasting, appetizers, and live music with Joe G.

“We’re moving through a year of transformation and kicking things off with our new fundraiser, Whiskers & Wags. We’re excited to introduce this new event with the hope it will become an annual gathering for the amazing community supporting us,” said Patti Rahn, MAPS board president.

Advance tickets are available for $25 at Wildwood Animal Hospital, Castlerock Vet, Marshfield Vet, Century 21, MAPS Adoption Center in Marshfield Mall or online at www.marshfieldpetshelter.org/events. Tickets will be $30 at the door on the day of the event.

Major event sponsors are Century 21 Gold Key Realty and Hotel Marshfield.

Funds raised at this event will help support the day-to-day operations at MAPS’ intake facility and adoption center. Last year, MAPS helped hundreds of local animals find forever homes, thanks to the support of the local community.

“MAPS will uncork the wine, food, and fun! We’ll have delicious food pairings to the wine, live and silent auction items, a cash bar featuring our signature drink the “Old Fashion Danny Boy” and live music to dance the night away,” said Rahn.

Marshfield Area Pet Shelter is a 501(c)3 non-profit volunteer-based organization serving as a humane shelter for the greater Marshfield area. MAPS is currently operating in a temporary home on West 29th Street in the former airport terminal building and at an Adoption Center within Marshfield Mall. They are currently in the process of building a new shelter on Downwind Drive in Marshfield.
