Referrals

The Society only considers requests that will benefit Marblehead residents. If you have lived in Marblehead for at least two years you can request financial assistance through the Marblehead Female Humane Society (MFHS).

Requests can be made through a number of local certified organizations who then refer the requests to the MFHS Board for review and disposition.
