  • We purchased our shelter 15 years ago and now our shelter is now in need of some upgrades. We are asking for additional funds to complete this process. PLEASE  DONATE SO WE CAN CONTINUE OUR WORK.

These poor kitties are really attached to each other and would really like to be adopted together. They have formed a bond that AFOC feels would be too upsetting to separate them even though it is harder for them to find a home  If you have room in your heart for two loving cats please consider adopting them.

Meet Rosie and Gertrude.

They are adorable adult dogs who have been rescued together. We are asking they be adopted together. We believe they are a Yorkshire mix.

Watch the video and see how  they just can’t wait to greet people come to see them.

This is what can happen to free animals. Tragic.

Quote from a dog fighter

“The hardest thing is to get enough dogs and cats for baiting. One good source is the local newspaper that offer a cat or dog for free. My wife dresses up neatly and collects them for me. If that source is running dry we just hire local gang kids to fetch dogs and cats. They scour the backyards and alleys and take whatever number we need. They make sure they leave the doors or gates open so people just believe they accidentally left them unlatched and that’s how their animals got out and got lost.

Can you guess which cat this is?   Answer

Shelter Volunteers Needed.

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 860-827-0381 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 and your schedule. You will find it very rewarding and the animals need you now.
