About Our Rescue Group:

GNHCP is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) organization whose primary purpose is to provide low-cost spay/neuter assistance to people feeding feral and/or stray cats, or to someone who has taken in a stray cat. Our foster cats available for adoption are brought in through our t/n/r (trap/neuter/return) and rescue work. We do not operate as a shelter and take in people's cats that need to be surrendered.

Our Adoption Policy

We require potential adopters to complete an adoption screening form and be interviewed to assure that our cats and kittens find good and permanent homes. Please contact us at (203) 782-2287. We prefer that you do this before coming to the Center for the purpose of adopting a cat or kitten.

Kittens must be eight or more weeks old before they can be adopted so they can receive their first Distemper Series vaccine and be tested for FeLV/FIV. They will also need to have a second distemper shot and rabies vaccine and be spayed or neutered.

We require an adoption fee of $100.00 to help defray the costs for vaccination and spay/neuter expenses. This adoption fee must be paid in full at the time of adoption. There is no flexibility in this arrangement. The adoption fee is the fee required per cat.

We will make the appointments for subsequent vaccinations or spay/neuter at one of the veterinarians that works with our organization. The follow up schedule will be noted in the adoption contract.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
