Over $ 6,000 raised

Weiler convenience stores in Marshfield have started selling shirts specially designed to raise funds for local animal welfare organizations Marshfield Area Pet Shelter (MAPS) and the Midwest Horse Welfare Foundation.

“Shelters don’t have any income, so they need all the funds that any business or person can raise,” said Kelly Weiler, owner. “This year has been particularly difficult for the rescues as they have had to cancel fundraisers. We wanted to do what we could to help!adopt do not buy shirts

She added that being locally owned, she enjoys giving back to the community where she lives and works.

“We are a local business. We live and work here in this community and it’s important for us to do what we can to help it thrive, ”Weiler said.

Showcasing bright colors and the slogan “Adopt, Don’t Shop,” the shirts were a popular item. Customers could also sponsor a horse feed bag for MHWF. With the help of the ProVision Partners cooperative, 40 bags of Purina Equine Feed were donated to the rescue.

In total, the fundraiser raised more than $ 6,000. All funds raised went straight to the rescue, with Weiler donating all costs for the shirts. The shirts were printed locally at Premier Printing in Marshfield.

On January 27, Kelly presented a check for $ 3,285.08 to MAPS and MHWF.
