"The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing."
These young cats below arrived 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 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!!
These kittens were dumped at the Canton’s Emergency Vet. AFOC has taken all 21 of them. These poor little kitties were taken from their mothers and some are too young to be adopted. We will find foster homes to socialize them. All this is possible because people care and have given. This will be a great drain on our resources. We would appreciate any amount that you can give.
UPDATE ALL the kittens that were abandoned in Canton are ill and in need of immediate medical attention. They are at the vets being cared for and funds are DESPERATELY NEEDED to pay their Vet bills. Please help and pray for them. AFOC has taken on a large financial strain in taking these 21 kittens. Sadly one has passed and now all have become ill. The Vets are treating them. Can you imagine taking 21 kittens to the Vets what your Vet bill would be? We now have them at two Vets. All donations are tax deductible or if you prefer sending a donation directly to our Vets They are Canton emergency Vet at 135 Dowd Ave. Canton, Ct. 06019 or Avon Vet at 328 W. Main St. Avon, 06001, but PLEASE make sure you note it is for AFOC. Thank you in advance for your help.
A elderly fellow who was save by a caring gentleman who noticed he was stuck in a storm drain in Bristol. He was able to release him, but when he saw what bad shape he was in he called AFOC. Stormy was taken to Emergency Vet in Canton where is receiving the medical treatment needed. Just look at those handsome whiskers. He is just one of many that AFOC has provided emergency medical help too. Because of emergencies like Stormy we are asking for donations to help with their Vet bills. If you find it in your heart to help Stormy or other strays please consider making a donation by PayPal. or by mail. The address is below.

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.
