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.
