Looking to add to your family and do something good for the Middletown community at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter! During the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many shelters in Middletown and environs are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

In the search for an adorable new companion, consider beginning at a local shelter like No Paw Left Behind Animal Rescue, where Meela the dog is waiting patiently. 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 appropriate homes.

Whether you’re a dog person, or if cats are more your thing, there are several great options available. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
