BELOW ARE OUR STRAYS THAT HAVE ARRIVED AT THE SHELTER WAITING FOR ADOPTION!!
Although AFOC may have puppies and kittens available for adoption, we encourage all potential adopters to consider the rewards of adopting an adult animal. Many young adult animals are full of energy and youthfulness yet beyond the early stages of housebreaking and chewing. Many middle age animals can provide wonderful companionship without the demands of early training. Evidence shows that adult animals are able to bond with a new adoptive family that provides a secure, loving environment. Some adjustment is always needed when a pet is taken to a new home, but can be facilitated by knowing the animal may be already house trained, respects certain rules and may even be happy to demonstrate the tricks it learned in its previous home. Discovering these little personality traits can be so much fun and ever so rewarding. Adopters are encouraged to speak to AFOC about the availability of adult animals. Our number is 860-827-0381.

When Foxy was rescued she had to be boarded at the Vets because there was no room at the shelter. She did not like the Vets. Finally when she arrived at the shelter she was very aggressive and we believe it was because her extended stay at the Vets. Over time and constant interaction with the volunteers she is now able to be petted and socialize with other cats. We do consider her adoptable, but she would need a special person who is able to understand that she has is not a mellow cat and would definitely be in charge.
