About Middleburg Humane
The Middleburg Humane Foundation (MHF) operates a non-profit, 23-acre farm shelter located on the west side of Marshall, Virginia. It is our goal to provide a haven for abused, neglected, and “at risk” animals, both large and small.
MHF specializes in the rescue and rehabilitation of animals that come to our shelter from a vast variety of situations. After much needed nurturing and medical care, our animals are placed available for adoption. We are reaching our goal of a humane and responsible community through outreach programs of assistance, education, and where necessary, intervention.
We depend on donations from individuals, businesses, and foundations, as well as funds raised at various events throughout the year. MHF also operates a Grooming Salon at our shelter in addition to a Resale Boutique Shop on Main Street in Marshall.
We at MHF believe that all animals, both large and small, have the right to safe and sanitary living conditions, protection from abuse and neglect, and to live their lives in an environment free from pain and fear.

Live Release Rate Information
Middleburg Humane Foundation's Live Release Rate is 94% for dogs and 92% for cats. The Annual Live Release Rate does not include 7 cats that died in shelter care.
We calculated this percentage using the following formula:
Adoptions + All Outgoing Transfers + Return to Owner or Guardian divided by Total Outcomes (excluding owner or guardian requested euthanasia and cats that died while in shelter care)
MHF is fortunate to have a wonderful group of dedicated staff and volunteers to address daily inquiries about a possible adoption, animal cruelty or neglect, spay/neuter assistance, lost or found, the unfortunate unwanted animals, coordinating volunteers and continual fundraising; and that's only the tip of the iceberg!
On average we care for 60 animals. In addition to the high number of cats and dogs, we provide care for horses and various other livestock. Most these animals have come to us from cruelty or neglectful situations; therefore, they require intensive daily behavioral and medical care.
Being part of a shelter that offers the rescue and rehabilitation of animals is the most wonderfully rewarding work in the world. We all love what we do here, and we put 110% effort into the animals and the shelter every day.
