By any measure, Middleburg, Virginia is an animal-friendly town. So it is little wonder that the community embraces the mission of the Middleburg Humane Foundation.

Middleburg Humane provides refuge and seeks homes for all manner of neglected, abused, unwanted or abandon animals. Toward this end, the foundation operates a private, 4.5-acre farm shelter located in Marshall, Virginia.

In order to provide the level of expert care necessary and to maintain the facilities for that care, fundraising is an ongoing process. Numerous benefits are held throughout the year, and the foundation’s black tie fundraiser, held annually in June, is perhaps the premier event.
