We run our rescue and adoption programs entirely through a volunteer foster network. We don’t have a shelter. This means we have no central location where our animals live, nor do we have viewing hours because our animals are in the safety and comfort of private homes throughout Fairfield, Litchfield and New Haven Counties. To adopt, please fill out our adoption form (below) for the animal(s) in which you’re interested. Email the form back to us. When we receive it, we will contact you to answer any questions you may have and to set up an adoption appointment.

Your adoption fee helps cover the veterinary expenses we incur for that cat or kitten prior to adoption. The veterinary care covered by the adoption fee includes:

  • General Physical Exam: $50-60, Avg. Retail Value
  • Spay or Neuter Surgery*  $125-400, Avg. Retail Value
  • FVRCP (Distemper vaccination): $30-35 per booster, Avg. Retail Value
  • Rabies Vaccination (if appropriate for age of kitten and health of animal): $20-$25, Avg. Retail Value
  • Deworming (at least one): $10-25 per dose, Avg. Retail Value
  • Testing for feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus:  $55-60, Avg. Retail Value
  • External parasite treatment (fleas, ticks, mites– as needed): $10-15, Avg. Retail Value
  • Total Avg. Adoption Value:  $300-595

*We have a neuter-before-adoption policy. Early-age spay/neuter is endorsed by the AVMA, the CTVMA, and is best practice in animal sheltering. If the early age spay/neuter concept is new to you, check out this informative article from Best Friends.
