MHF rescues, rehabilitates, and adopts out at-risk animals and promotes animal welfare through community outreach and humane education.
(Located in Marshall, Fauquier County, VA)
The Middleburg Humane Foundation specializes in the rescue and rehabilitation of domestic animals and livestock. The animals in our care enter the shelter from a variety of situations, including neglect and abuse. All animals are vetted at intake and, when necessary, provided medical treatment to return them to health. Many of the animals that come to MHF require specialized care.
In 2021 MHF took in more than 780 animals, exceeding the number of animals helped the previous year.
Through our Trap, Neuter & Return Program we spayed/neutered more than 781 cats in 2021, which received surgery in our operational in-house clinic.
Our neonatal nursery program, Kitten College provided care for 351 kittens. Nursing mothers and their kittens and orphaned kittens found outside are brought to the shelter, vetted, then placed in foster care for socialization. Once the kittens "graduate from college" (i.e., become socialized) they are placed available for adoption.
We have room for a variety of equine and livestock on our 23 acres of shelter grounds. At any given time we might have horses, cows, pigs, goats, and poultry in our paddocks and in our barn.
As 2022 progresses, MHF hopes to continue its track record of positive outcomes for vulnerable animals in the community.
