Want to add to your family and give back to the Middletown community at the same time? Then you should consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or organization. During the coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

There are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages without a home in New Jersey — and many of them are located in your area. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new friend is at Your New Best Friend Dog Rescue, where Krease the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in permanent homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We round up a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Jojo, a Domestic Short Hair mix up for adoption. If dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
