CT Cat Connection, a 100% volunteer no-kill cat shelter, is looking for dedicated volunteers who like to help homeless cats find their forever homes. We are looking for volunteers to come in daily - both morning and evening - to help care for the cats. This involves cleaning their cages, giving them fresh food and water, changing their bedding, and scooping cat boxes. Purrs and head taps are perks of the position!!

Additional ways to volunteer:

  • Cat Care - feeding and cleaning the cats - two shifts available: AM (7-9am start) and PM (5pm start)
  • Driving cats/kittens to vet appointments and back to the Adoption Center
  • Trapping strays
  • Fostering - short term (days/weeks/few months) for cats and kittens
  • Grant writing
  • Office Support
  • Facility cleaning, dishes, laundry, lawn care/gardening
  • Medical Support - giving cats with chronic conditions or temporary illnesses, medication

Some opportunities request a steady commitment while others can be done sporadically or as demand dictates. Skills needed vary by role, but the most important one is that the volunteer is compassionate and cares about cats!

Mission Statement

We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to the welfare of animals with a 'No-Kill' policy (with medical exceptions). Our efforts are focused primarily on finding loving homes for the many cats that are strays, abused, abandoned, surrendered or impounded. All animals are given medical attention and vaccinated before placement and spayed and neutered if at least four months of age. We are a small shelter comprised of 100% volunteers dedicated to helping homeless cats find their forever families


Connecticut Cat Connection was started from a one person rescue in the 80’s by taking in one stray at a time, to working with other rescue organizations in the 2000’s, to expanding to its own organization under the name Cat Haven in 2003. Due to the increasing need to help more cats and the expense associated with any animal rescue, in 2007 the organization became a non-profit and officially changed its name to Connecticut Cat Connection. In October 2010, CCC expanded yet again and opened it's first brick and mortar, street side Adoption Center in Windsor, CT, making their mission of "Finding 'Forever Homes' for every cat...", a little bit easier. What began by taking in a few cats a year, to 100 cats a year, then upward of 200 cats a year in 2010, has now increased to approximately 400 cats a year. In 2011, CCC placed cats with approximately 213 families
