Animal Friends counts on donations to survive. As the summer months are before us and people are on vacation, donations really drop off. Please remember us during the summer so we can continue to provide for the many animals in our care. Please donate!
We are looking for a few good foster homes if interested call 860-693-0303 for more info.
When these young cats arrived they were almost feral, but through constant interaction with the volunteers they are improving. They are now comfortable with the volunteers, but still afraid of strangers. If you are interested in any and want to give them time to get to know you we would be happy to arrange visits where you could just sit and get to know them. You are welcomed to come as many times as necessary so they and you are comfortable together.
Want to help spread the word about the need to find homes for these cat? You can help by making copies of the poster (click here to print)and distribute them to your veterinarian, supermarket bulletin boards, and any other places that allow postings from the community. Also, please ask your veterinarian to include AFOC on their list of suggested shelters when people contact them looking for a new pet. Thank you!!

Piper was found in Bridgeport with a litter of 5 kittens. She was starving and stopped producing milk. Her kittens all survived and have been adopted. Piper is fully recovered and has recently been spayed. She is now very healthy. Piper is a petite, sweet and very loving girl. She is very young, we believe she about 7-9 months old. Piper loves attention, has a wonderful disposition and the prettiest green eyes. She will make a great pet for someone.
Portia is a sweet young girl who is so friendly that as soon as you entered the room she will came to greet you This girl is one of the special cats that you could just pick up and hug. When rescued it was noticed that she had a head tilt. Upon examination by the Vet it was determined she was born with it. It doesn't effect her ability to be just lovable especially with those beautiful amber eyes. She is healthy and playfully and would make a wonderful companion. If interested call 860-232-1393.
Shelter Volunteers Needed.
We are looking for new volunteers to help out at our New Britain shelter. If you are available for a few hours during the morning and want to help take care of the many cats in our charge please call 860-827-0381 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for an interview. Volunteer positions may be for just one day a week or several days depending on your schedule. Just let us know what day(s) you would like to volunteer and we will work with you and your schedule. You will find it very rewarding and the animals need you now.
This is what can happen when people list pets as free to a good home.
Quote from a dog fighter
“The hardest thing is to get enough dogs and cats for baiting. One good source is the local newspaper that offer a cat or dog for free. My wife dresses up neatly and collects them for me. If that source is running dry we just hire local gang kids to fetch dogs and cats. They scour the backyards and alleys and take whatever number we need. They make sure they leave the doors or gates open so people just believe they accidentally left them unlatched and that’s how their animals got out and got lost.
