Middleburg Humane Foundation joined the nationwide pet adoption initiative Clear the Shelters movement thanks to an anonymous benefactor.

“Middleburg Humane Foundation joins hundreds of other shelters in this nationwide event by waiving all fees for equine, livestock, cats and dogs,” said Polly Gault, executive director for Middleburg Humane Foundation (MHF). “The difference with our campaign is MHF still requires the completion of the adoption application and veterinary check. Our equine and livestock adoptions • home checks in addition to everything else,” she explains. The local Clear Our Shelter campaign continues until Sept. 8.

The foundation operates a private, nonprofit farm shelter in Marshall specializing 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. Visit the nonprofit’s website (www.middleburghumane.org) for more information and to view the list of available animals.
