The City of Marshfield requires that any owner or keeper of any animal shall keep animals restrained or confined on the premises of the owner unless the animal is held by a leash. Any animal running at large in violation of the leash law may be picked up and impounded.

Any animal not redeemed by the owner after 10 days may be placed for adoption or disposed of in a humane manner.
