The Middleburg Humane Foundation recently began a spay and neuter service at their state-of-the-art clinic at their new shelter in Marshall.

This onsite clinic was made possible through a new partnership with Caring Hands Animal Support & Education and the Animal Welfare League of Arlington. Staff and volunteers along with veterinarians and vet techs worked together to check cats in and prepare them for the surgery as well as vaccinations, micro-chipping and recovery.

This is not a new concept and it should be noted that the Fauquier SPCA in Midland began a similar service in 2008 for feral cats and have since treated 3001 felines. This is the oldest spay and neuter service in Virginia. This program was initiated by the late Sharon Maloney, the president and a life long major force with this group.
