Please stop by their booth to visit, shop and support a great organization!

"Adopting one of our animals offers them a chance to have the life they richly deserve: to be safe from abuse, pain, fear and neglect…And adopting and providing a forever home to one of our animals will provide you with a forever friend!"

The Middleburg Humane Foundation (MHF) operates a private, non-profit, shelter located in Marshall, Virginia. It is our goal to provide a safe haven for abused, neglected, and “at risk” animals, both large and small.
We depend solely 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 Marshall in addition to a Thrift Shop in the town of Middleburg.
A few of our horses available for adoption:
Colby & Pepe - Colby is a 15 yr. old, gelding Bay Thoroughbred. He looks to be about 15 H high. Pepe is 6 yr. old, black and white, Shetland/Mini X. He seems to be about 9H. Colby is missing one eye, but that doesn’t slow him down at all. Both are incredibly sweet with people & both have had some training in the past. Colby & Pepe are very bonded with each other. They are looking for a home together.
Thelma & Louise - Thelma and Louise are two large Molly mules who came from a slaughter auction in Pennsylvania. There is evidence that at one point they were Amish buggy mules. They are both around 11 years old, and very healthy (they both have naturally great feet!), but because of trauma in their past they can be difficult to handle and would require an experienced mule person to work with them. We strongly feel that with the right handling/training, these girls will be able to do anything!
