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 at 860-225-1339 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 us at 860-225-1339 to learn more about that cat of kitten that has caught your eye!
What a pretty pose ! Eliza, about 4 yr old , came to our shelter as a tiny kitten with her mother and sibling kitties. Because her Mother had a wound of unknown origin, they all had to be quarantined for a period of time, thus losing valuable socialization time. Eliza has made gains and looks forward to visits and petting from volunteers. With the right adopter, Eliza could learn to trust and love even more.
Please call 860-225-1339 if you're interested in Eliza!
Christine / Chrissie
This is Christine/Chrissie.
She was relinquished to us due to a major change in her household.
She is 4 years old, completely up to date on vet visits, shots and she is microchipped.
She was accepting of being held and petted immediately but she is confused and scared and had a very bad first night at the shelter. She needs a gentle, loving home. No dogs and preferably no cats while she adjusts and learns to trust again.
Please call 860 225-1339 if you are interested in Chrissie!
"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 860-225-1339 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 860-225-1339 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 860-225-1339 if you're interested in Gaston!
Every year we are called to rescue and find homes for kittens and their mothers. We have many young mothers and their litters in AFOC foster homes until the kittens are old enough to be adopted. This is a very dynamic situation as we are taking reservations, adopting them out, and taking in new ones frequently. Many of the kittens pictured may already have been reserved or adopted but we have many more coming into our foster care. Most of the latest pictures and information is on our Facebook pages (both the official AFOC and those of our volunteers, and our director George). Please call George at 860-693-0303 if you are interested in our kittens and or their mothers.
