Humane Investigation

MHF Founder, Hilleary Bogley, is a court-appointed Humane Investigator for Fauquier and Culpeper Counties. Having a humane investigator on staff enables MHF to assist with calls of concern and pro-actively intervene in situations of abuse or neglect.  When intervention is necessary, Hilleary offers education and assistance to help owners properly care for their pets.

Many of the rescued animals, removed or willfully released from owners, come to the MHF shelter to receive needed medical & behavioral care, providing a second chance at a life that they so deserve.


How YOU Can Help: Stand up for animals and speak up if you see something you feel is not right. Call MHF for concerns in Fauquier & Culpeper Counties or call the county shelter where the animal is located and they will direct you to the corresponding agency handling animal welfare concerns.


If you would like to contact the Humane Investigator, please call the shelter during business hours at 540-364-3272 or email


If you have an after-hours emergency, please contact Hilleary Bogley at 540-270-4207
