MHF Staff & Volunteers

MHF is fortunate to have a wonderful group of dedicated staff and volunteers. The MHF office receives approximately 40-50 phone calls per day requiring attention from a staff member in terms of a possible adoption, animal cruelty or neglect, spay/neuter assistance, lost or found, the unfortunate unwanted animals, coordinating volunteers and continual fundraising; and that's only the tip of the iceberg!


 We have an average of 60 animals in our care. In addition to the high number of cats and dogs, we provide care for horses and various other livestock. The majority of these animals have come to us from cruelty or neglectful situations; therefore, they require intensive daily behavioral and/or medical care.


Being part of a shelter that offers the rescue and rehabilitation of animals is the most wonderfully rewarding work in the world. We all love what we do here, and we put 110% effort into the animals and the shelter every day.
