If you have a cat you need to re-home, rather than turn him over to a rescue group or shelter, we suggest that you actively pursue finding a new home on your own. You not only know this animal best and the type of home most suitable for him, but you can also focus all your efforts on this pet. Most shelters and rescue groups are overwhelmed by the sheer number of stray animals needing homes at any given time. Follow these helpful tips from Best Friends to find your pet a new home.
If you live in Newtown and need to find a new home for your cat, we suggest contacting the Newtown shelter at (203)426-6900. If you live outside the Newtown area, you can locate your local shelter or rescue group at Petfinder. Simply go to “Find Animal Welfare Groups” on their home page.
