Volunteer Your Time

We are always looking for volunteers to help at our shelter.
Duties include light housekeeping and taking care of our feline residents.
Volunteering can be on your schedule and you can come as often or as little as you like.
Come with a friend or older child and enjoy a very rewarding experience.

Kitty Scratch

We are looking for new volunteers to help out at our New Britain shelter. If you are available for a few hours during the morning and want to help take care of the many cats in our charge, please call us at 860-225-1339 or e-mail: to arrange for an interview.


Volunteer positions may be for just one day a week or several days depending on your schedule. Just let us know what day(s) you would like to volunteer and we will work with you. You will find it very rewarding and the animals need you now.

We also need volunteers to work on the newsletter and organize fund raising projects.

Volunteer at Animal Friends of Connecticut to foster kittens.

Baby Kitten Fosters

We always need new volunteers to foster baby kittens.

​Our baby kittens may be with or without their mothers. The choice is yours.

With mothers, the kittens require very little attention as the mother cat will take care of them.

Motherless kittens, less than 4 weeks old, need to be bottle fed and stimulated to potty.

Kitten fostering may be up to an 8 week commitment. At 8 weeks of age the kittens are ready for adoption.

If you are interested in fostering kittens in your home, please contact George at 860-693-0303.

The following volunteer opportunities are available:


  • We are looking for anyone with carpentry, plumbing, electrical, painting, roofing, etc. experience to help maintain our shelter in New Britain CT.

  • Animal Friends does hold a number of fund-raising events during the warm months, ending with our Bake Sale in late October , but we could really use a dynamic planner and coordinator to raise monies for us during the year. If you have experience organizing fundraising programs, public relations skills , ideas and time to offer, we would greatly appreciate your help.

  • We need volunteers, once a day or more, weekly, from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., for light housekeeping and socializing with our feline residents.

  • We are looking for volunteers, with good writing skills, to help with our quarterly newsletter. Volunteers would write short stories about our adoptees in their new homes as well as our shelter cats waiting for their forever homes.
