Remember Donations Save Lives

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 copy

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.

Portia2493 copy

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.

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.

  • We are in need of a donated car in good running condition. It will help us transport our residents to and from the Vet. Many of our residents are in their senior years and need more constant Vet care.
  • PLEASE Donate SO WE CAN CONTINUE OUR WORK.
  • We are also in need of a outdoor shed for storage if anyone wishes to donate one.
