Culpeper, VA. January 7, 2020 – To those concerned and in the interests of public awareness, I will be continuing my work as a Circuit Court Appointed Humane Investigator (HI) for both Fauquier & Culpeper Counties independent of the Middleburg Humane Foundation (MHF).
In May of 2016, I submitted my resignation as President of the Board of Directors and Executive Director of MHF. I resigned over differences in animal rescue procedures and overall shelter philosophy. For the past 3+ years, I continued my rescue work on staff at MHF focused on Humane Investigations and the Chained Dog Assistance Program (CDAP).
On November 18, 2019, in a meeting called by the Chairman of the Board, Joshua Muss and Executive Director Rose Rogers, I was informed that as of November 21, I would no longer be an employee of MHF. I was offered an Independent Contractor option at MHF for Humane Investigations and the CDAP to continue.
After consideration, I chose a different option and separated from MHF. Now, Humane Investigations and a chained dog assistance program will continue through a network of rescue organizations. I am currently partnering with the Culpeper Humane Society with support services through For the Cats Sake, Equine Rescue League, MHF and many others. Working together to be kind to all animals in our community.
Animal welfare is my passion, I have served Fauquier County for over 25 years and Culpeper County for the last 13 years, as well. I am dedicated to continuing my work of providing services to ensure that all animals have the right to safe and adequate living conditions, protection from abuse and neglect and to live their lives free of fear and pain.
