The Feline Connection champions for cats who need homes. We are committed to finding each cat a safe and healthy permanent home. We work to find the best possible home matches for each of our stray or friendly ‘colony cats’ based on their unique needs, and the needs of the adopter. We have no shelter location, so all of our animals are fostered with families in Rutland County, Vermont, mostly near Rutland. This gives us the unique capability to observe and interact with each cat in a relaxed home environment.
