Additional adoption info

The Queenie Foundation runs a cat rescue/adoption program in the greater Hartford, CT area. We believe that one way to stop overpopulation is to place animals only after they've been sterilized. Our fosters are fully vetted before they’re ready to go home. All you add is love!

Occasionally, The Queenie Foundation posts animals who are available for adoption through other organizations or individuals, as a courtesy. If you have found an animal in whom you are interested who is not a Queenie Foundation cat, we invite you to contact the group or person whose information appears in the body of the profile. They can tell you all you need to know about the animal.

Requirements for adopting a cat: You must be a Connecticut resident and be at least 25 years old. You will fill out a Companion Animal Guardian History, provide the name and phone number of all the animal hospitals you've used in the last three years for a reference plus agree to a home visit via video chat. If you are approved, you sign an adoption contract and we email the cat's medical records to you. The adoption fee is $250 per cat (to be paid in cash) which includes, but is not limited to, spay or neuter, vaccinations, worming, and microchip.

Adopt a Pet is the easiest way for you to search for a new pet in Manchester, CT.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

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 dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
