Chula Welcome! Vanity

The Middletown Humane Society is a Low/No Kill privately run animal shelter in Middletown N.Y., serving the City of Middletown as well as surrounding communities.

Come in and visit us. You’ll now find people who are happy to guide you through the process of finding just the right pet be it a cat, a dog, a hamster or even a bird. We will also guide adopters through the process of welcoming shelter animals into their homes. Can’t keep your beloved pet? If there is space, we can provide transitional housing and will work hard to find another loving home.

Want to help but not adopt? Sign-up as a volunteer or perhaps as a foster care parent. We can always find a use for another pair of helping hands.

Nathan Winograd, a leader in the No Kill Movement, calculated that people “only need to increase the market for shelter pets by three percent in order to eliminate killing.”


Please help the Humane Society of Middletown do its part:

Don’t Shop, Adopt!

Be Careful With Your Animals In The Hot Weather:

Make sure that they don’t stay out in the sun for too long (shade is what we should all have), give them plenty of clean fresh water and DO NOT over exercise! Your car will become an oven in no time flat even with the windows open, so NEVER LEAVE an animal in a parked car. It’s also illegal! Exercise your dog in the morning or evening when it’s not as hot. In extremely hot weather keep your dog off of asphalt. Dogs are much closer to the ground, and their bodies absorb the heat much faster than we do. Paws can burn because they don’t wear shoes! If it’s too hot for you to walk barefoot on the asphalt, it’s too hot for them as well.

If you find an animal left in a parked car please call the police! Animals can die quickly! On a cool day of 82, a car can quickly reach a temp of 109 without the windows open and 98 with them open! Get more info.
