MHF is fortunate to have a group of dedicated staff and volunteers to care for the animals in the shelter and foster homes, and help our community by responding to inquiries about taking in animals, adoptions, animal care, finding affordable veterinary care, lost or found animals, assistance with community cats, and more. Being part of a shelter that rescues and rehabilitates animals is rewarding work and we all love what we do here. Our staff puts 110% effort into the animals and the shelter every day.
