MIDDLETOWN—The Middletown Humane Society, an independent non-profit that was started 1959, is a no-kill shelter that does euthanasia only for humane reasons, such as putting an animal out of its misery. They have about 40 dogs and a little over 40 cats, close to their maximum capacity, and are staffed with about 12 employees, although currently hiring. “Our mission here is to help as many animals find loving, happy homes as possible,” said manager Maureen Hogan. “Everybody who works here loves them like they are ours. We really are a family here.” She says they appreciate when people keep them updated on their adopted pets and enjoy watching them transform from “nervous creatures to these loving pets that sit on your lap.”
