Although AFOC may have puppies and kittens available for adoption, we encourage all potential adopters to consider the rewards of adopting an adult animal. Many young adult animals are full of energy and youthfulness yet beyond the early stages of housebreaking and chewing. Many middle age animals can provide wonderful companionship without the demands of early training. Evidence shows that adult animals are able to bond with a new adoptive family that provides a secure, loving environment. Some adjustment is always needed when a pet is taken to a new home, but can be facilitated by knowing the animal may be already house trained, respects certain rules and may even be happy to demonstrate the tricks it learned in its previous home. Discovering these little personality traits can be so much fun and ever so rewarding. Adopters are encouraged to speak to AFOC about the availability of adult animals. Our number is 860-827-0381.



Mango is a super friendly young male. He is just so lovable that he will steal your heart. 

Curtis is a wonderful fellow who welcomes any new cats in his room and makes them feel at home. He also was very frightened when he arrived. Though interactions with the volunteers he has shown to be a wonderful fellow who really deserves a home. Curtis has formed a bond with the other cats in the room. We feel for Curtis to be happy we would ask that one of his roommates be also adopted at the same time.

If you would like to tell us about how you and your adopted friend are doing just e-mail us at


When he first came he was so frightened but believe it or not Curtis helped her calm down and now he welcomes attention from the volunteers. He just needs a little time to trust.

Bella is a shy girl who will be your best friend once she trusts you. She is about  4 years old and really has nice colors. Bella needs someone who will let her blossom into a wonderful companion.

     When Gaston first came to the shelter he was a friendly fellow. As time went on during his stay he changed. He could not get along with the male cats and some male volunteers. He was separated but finding him a roommate was difficult. Finally it was determined that a mild tempered female calmed him down. He would do better with an experienced adopter. He is a handsome fellow and we are hoping that his someone special comes along.

Meet Big Boy! A friendly fellow who probably was abandoned because he was already neutured. Even though it was thought he was in a cat colony a volunteer noticed he was constanly trying to get into their enclosed porch. He probably was unsure at first so the effort to catch him at first was unsuccessful. With a successful rescue he was Vet checked is now at the shelter. He is has a mellow personality and is doing well with his litter retraining
