Who We Are

Animal Friends of Connecticut (AFOC) is a non-profit, all-volunteer, animal protection organization, located in central Connecticut and dedicated to animal rescue. We rescue stray, abandoned, abused, and handicapped pets (mainly dogs, cats, and kittens). We also rescue animals from local pounds when their owners cannot be located. The animals are given medical care and vaccinations, are spayed or neutered, then cared for at our no-kill shelter until they are adopted into a loving forever home.

Animal Friends of Connecticut is fortunate to have been able to find caring homes for many homeless pets that otherwise would have been killed. No animal is ever put to sleep unless it is incurably ill and suffering, with no chance of recovering to an acceptable quality of life.

We are non-profit and fund our no-kill shelter, veterinary expenses, pet adoption, and basic needs of our rescues, through our fundraisers and from the generosity and charitable donations from people like you. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to help us with our abandoned pet rescue efforts by visiting our donations page:
