Areas we need help

Cat/Kitten Foster

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. Adult cats may have other needs.

Cleaning/Light Housekeeping

We need volunteers, once a day or more, weekly, from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., for light housekeeping. Socializing is appreciated as well. 

Building Maintenance

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

Cat Socializer

Socializing and having cats be used to humans is helpful to our placements. Volunteers will have light cleaning duties and be able to socialize with cats as well.

Social Media / Newsletter

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

Event Coordinator Volunteer

AFOC holds 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.
