Friends of Marshall Animals was formed in 2012 as a response to the growing awareness of problems at the Marshall Animal Shelter. We became a federally tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in June, 2018. Our ten board members, along with many volunteers and supporters, are working towards the goal of making ours a low-kill community.
