These young cats arrived almost feral, but through constant interaction with the volunteers they are improving. They are now comfortable with the volunteers, but still afraid of strangers. If you are interested in any and want to give them time to get to know you we would be happy to arrange visits where you could just sit and get to know them. You are welcomed to come as many times as necessary so they and you are comfortable together.

Meet Patches.

This poor kitty was found in terrible condition. She is about a 1 year old  and only weighs 3 pounds! She is too friendly to be a feral cat and was probably someone's pet who either escaped or was thrown out to fend for herself. Patches now has a home.

      This poor declawed kitty was found with a injured tail. AFOC was called to rescue this girl. She was injured and her tail was broken and now has to amputated. Considering the temperature outside and the fact that she is declawed her chances were not good to survive. We thank the lady who called us and probably saved her life. She is now receiving the medical care she needs.

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.

Foster Homes are desperately needed for more info. call 860-827-0381

Our greatest need is fostering mothers who are nursing.

This is what can happen when people list pets as free to a good home.

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.
