  • 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 have been with us years and they do their best to greet visitors who are looking for a companion. They are still hoping, but we at AFOC aren't giving up on them even if they give up. Please consider adopting a older cat. They have MANY more years to give someone love and companionship.

Animal Friends of Connecticut is looking to interview for the position of Shelter Coordinator.

If interested please call 860-827-0381 for more information.

Gina and her brother Gideon are waiting for a home.

They are very close and we are asking they be adopted together. They are young and playful. Really like chasing the string.

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.
