1,000 Attend Pet Shelter Breakfast, Raise $12,600 for Local Animals

MAPS Fundraising Breakfast Another Record-Breaking Event

Marshfield Area Pet Shelter again broke records at the 6th annual “Paws & Pancakes” MAPS breakfast fundraiser on Sunday, February 26th at Knights of Columbus Hall.

A total of 1,023 people enjoyed a delicious breakfast, fun raffles, and other great opportunities to help local animals. For the sixth year in a row, the attendance record was broken, easily surpassing last year’s attendance of 953 people.

“Every year we hope our event is bigger and better than the previous year and every year we are blown away by the large number of people who come out to support us,” said MAPS President Karen Rau. “It says a lot about people wanting to help animals and what a great community we live in.”

The breakfast raised $12,600 to help MAPS with the day-to-day operating costs for the animals at their adoption center and temporary shelter locations.

“The proceeds from this event will help us care for hundreds of innocent animals,” said Rau. “We are very thankful for our community’s generous support.”

MAPS would like to thank everyone who attended, volunteered, and supported this year’s breakfast fundraiser, including premier sponsors Thrivent Financial, Bushman Dairy Distributing- Morning Glory Dairy, and Catholic Financial Life.
