Cats and Kittens Up For Adoption

All Animal Friends Of Connecticut shelter residents are spayed or neutered and up to date with shots prior to adoption.

If interested in adopting you must first call our shelter director Jean, at 860-489-4901 for a phone interview.

Although AFOC may have 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 cat 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.


Of course kittens have boundless energy,are highly entertaining, and greatly desired. Please keep in mind that kittens grow into cats very quickly. The choice is yours and the most important thing is being ready to make a commitment to providing a "forever home" for the newest member of your family.

Adopters are encouraged to speak to AFOC about the availability and compatibility of our adoptable cats and kittens.
Please call our shelter director Jean at 860-489-4901 to learn more about that cat of kitten that has caught your eye!


Barney is only about a year old.

He was dumped in Torrington and rescued by Animal Friends of CT.  

He has already visited Dr. S. so he is neutered, neg/neg., and has had his shots.  

He loves petting and attention.

His new roommate is Cinnamon and they bonded instantly. For that reason we are asking that Barney and Cinnamon are adopted together.

Please call Jean at 860-489-4901 if you're interested in Barney!


Lizzie is about 2-years old and is just a sweet girl.

She is a beautiful young adult Tortie female who was originally found by a wonderful lady who was very allergic to cats, but rescued her with the hope of finding a shelter to take her.
She believed she was someones pet because she was so sweet and friendly.
Two years ago she was adopted, but now is back at the shelter because her owner had to relocate.
Unfortunately this poor girl lost her home.
She's been checked by our Vet and is now looking for some good fortune and a forever home.

Please call Jean at 860-489-4901 if you're interested in Lizzie!


"Glenda", also known as "Girlfriend", is just that.
She is a very flirty girl who likes to pose for the boys in the next room.
She is gorgeous, affectionate, and loves to be groomed and petted, to get her ready for her date with you”.

Please call Jean at 860-489-4901 if you're interested in Glenda!


Curtis is a wonderful boy who welcomes any new cats in his room and makes them feel at home. He also was very frightened when he arrived.


Through interactions with our shelter volunteers, he has shown to be a wonderful boy who really deserves a home.


Curtis has formed a bond with the other cats in the room. We want Curtis to be happy we would ask that one of his roommates be also adopted at the same time.

Please call Jean at 860-489-4901 if you're interested in Curtis!


When Gaston first came to the shelter he was a friendly guy. 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 guy and we are hoping that his someone special comes along. He is very particular about which people he accepts.

Please call Jean at 860-489-4901 if you're interested in Gaston!


Feugo is young neutered male that was  found in a burned out and boarded up building in Hartford. He was found by the Hartford Fire Department.

Feugo is very friendly and gets along with other cats at shelter. He has no problem rooming with Big Boy and Vega at the shelter. He is pretty chill and very friendly.

Please call Jean at 860-489-4901 if you're interested in Feugo!


Phillip is 1 1/2 year old male LOVER boy!
He is currently being fostered by our volunteer Jane, and she says he is a great cat.

Phillip loves to play and his favorite toy is his own tail !
He loves his tail and probably because it's such a pretty fluffy one.

We believe Phillip is Maxine's brother, so maybe they would be a perfect pair to adopt.

If you are interested in meeting Phillip, please call Jean 860 489-4901.


Maxine is our flirty girl!
She is 1 1/2 yr old with a pretty blue/cream color.

Maxine is spayed and ready to go to your home.
She is as sweet as she looks.

We believe Maxine is Phillip's sister, so maybe they would be a perfect pair to adopt.

Please call Jean at 860 489-4901 to meet Maxine !
