Most of you have probably heard about the “Betty White Challenge”. We lost this amazing champion for animals on December 31, 2021. To honor her on what would have been her 100th Birthday, we join animal lovers everywhere in asking you to consider donating $5 (or more) to an animal cause. The Feline Connection would gratefully accept your donations. Let’s do Betty proud!


This Community is dedicated to eliminating the misery and suffering of homeless, stray, and feral cats.

A healthy cat is a happy cat. Our work focuses on the health and safety of the cat, a great experience for cat adopters, and an ethical approach to cat rescue operations.


Interested in giving a cat a loving Forever Family? Please fill out an Adoption Application. To place a cat on hold, a $50 deposit fee is required. Cats can be placed on hold after your Adoption Application has been approved.


Pandemic Protocol UPDATE from The Feline Connection


As a foster-based rescue, we can only save as many cats and kittens as we have foster homes for. Kitten season is just beginning and our foster homes are already full. We are in desperate need of foster care providers, especially ones who are willing to provide semi-feral pregnant cats with a safe place to have their kittens. If you would like to try your hand at lion taming, let us know!

In addition to lion-tamers, The Feline Connection is in need of some mouse clickers; volunteers who work from home helping with the day-to-day operations of the rescue. “Work” when you want, where you want, for as long as you want! Specific responsibilities we need help with include:

  • Adoption/foster application processing (Remote)
  • Adoption follow-up (Remote) •
  • Monitoring Lost & Found pages on Facebook (Remote)
  • Coordinating the placement of, monitoring, and maintaining the feral cat houses in the greater Rutland area.

How can you help?

Adopt

Fuzzy best friends are waiting for you to take them to their forever home.

Donate

It takes about $200 to rescue a healthy stray. We are only able to rescue as many of the cats as we can afford.

Foster

Fostering cats and kittens saves lives. Provide a temporary home to a homeless cat.

Volunteer

It takes a community to help cats. Join us. There is something for everyone to do.

About Us

We provide options for homeless cats. We manage several feral cat communities and assist stray cats to find their Forever Families.
