Middleburg Humane joins “Clear the Shelter” effort

The Marshall-based Middleburg Humane Foundation has joined the “Clear the Shelter” movement, thanks to an anonymous benefactor.

The donation allows the foundation to run a slightly different campaign through Sept. 8.

“Middleburg Humane Foundation joins hundreds of other shelters in this nationwide event by waiving all fees for equine, livestock, cats and dogs,” Executive Director Polly Gault explained. “The difference with our campaign is MHF still requires the completion of the adoption application and veterinary check. Our equine and livestock adoptions require home checks in addition to everything else.”

Those who wish to adopt can check the foundation website for a list of available animals.

The Middleburg Humane Foundation operates a private, nonprofit farm shelter in Marshall. The foundation specializes in the rescue and rehabilitation of animals that come from a variety of abusive situations. After medical attention and care, animals are made available for adoption. MHF focuses on the hardest situations, from large animal rescue involving horses and cows to animal seizures, chained dog assistance, community cat trap, neuter and return to rehabilitation throughout Virginia and a 50-mile radius from the shelter.

The foundation believes 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.
