Looking to add to your family and do something good for the Middletown community at the same time? Perhaps it’s finally time to adopt a pet! During the coronavirus pandemic, many animal shelters in the Middletown area 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 across New Jersey — many of whom are located near you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to start your search for a lovable new companion is at A Second Chance For Ziva Inc, where Patches the dog is waiting patiently, or another local 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.

Here at Patch, with a little help from our friends at Petfinder, we create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, meet Dunn, a Chihuahua mix up for adoption. If cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
