The Humane Society of Middletown was founded in 1959 by a handful of people with big hearts and small purses. We are a privately run animal shelter that is funded through the generosity of our supporters and not the Humane Society of the United States.
The shelter is going through momentous changes! We are now a low/no kill facility; no longer will animals be killed simply to make room for new ones. Our dedicated staff works hard every day to ensure that the animals in our care receive the best care that we can afford. We have improved each and every animal’s nutritional and medical needs. Socialization has become another primary goal, so we now have dog walkers and are providing educational opportunities for those who work with our animals.
The mission of the Humane Society of Middletown is to make possible, during their transitional period, a better world for the animals in our charge by providing compassion, food, medical care and shelter. In addition, we are dedicated to educating the community about humane care, promoting the human-animal bond and encouraging adoption.
- Maintain 0% euthanasia for all adoptable animals.
- Improve the health of our animals through proper nutrition and medical services.
- Enlarge our foster home program to alleviate overcrowding and to provide needed special care as well as socialization which will improve the retention rate of adoptions.
- Increase volunteerism and, thereby, promote proper animal care as well as improving the lives of the animals in our care.
- Increase awareness for TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release) programs for feral cats.
- Increase substantially the amount of income derived from donations and endowments.
- Create improved partnerships with area municipalities, businesses as well as area shelters/sanctuaries.
- Improve upon our post adoption services to increase the retention rate of adoptions.
Animal Farm Foundation Poster Project
Animal Farm Foundation is dedicated to dispelling the myths concerning ‘pit bull’ type dogs and their owners. Far too often, people believe the myth that ‘pit bulls’ (in actuality, there is no such breed) are vicious animals that are owned primarily by one of the worst segments of our society. The reality is that the vast majority of ‘pit bull’ type dogs are responsible owners. The goal of the poster project is to create a visual of that majority.
