Welcome to the PAWS Adoption Center web site. PAWS Adoption Center is a no-kill, non-profit animal shelter located in Middletown, Ohio, and is dedicated to providing care and shelter for unwanted dogs and cats and placing them in loving homes. Our mission is to reduce the number of homeless pets by promoting adoption, spay/neuter, education and responsible pet ownership. We house approximately 80 dogs and cats looking for permanent, loving homes. PAWS is conveniently located off the I-75 corridor and has served Middletown and surrounding communities for over 32 years. Please explore our site to learn more about PAWS and the wonderful dogs and cats we have available for adoption.
