What do we do with the donations we receive?

We are a 501c3 non-profit cat rescue organization under the umbrella of The Vermont Volunteer Services For Animals Humane Society. A majority of our funding comes from you, our supporters, through donations. 100% of the funding we receive goes to the animals and buying the supplies we need to support our mission. Everyone at The Feline Connection is a volunteer. We would not be able to accomplish all we have accomplished without the support of our donors and the community of businesses that help us in one way or another.

Thank you!

Amira – 3 days old in this photo. She is the kitten of a stray mama cat, Zara who was lucky enough to have her kittens in one of our foster homes rather on the street. Yes, she is already spoken for, though she has quite a bit of growing to do first.

    Hello Claudia!

    Thank you so much! We always need cat food. If you are in the Rutland, Vermont area, you could bring them by to one of our Raffle events. Or, you could have it sent to us from one of our Amazon Wishlists, which are available on our Donate page.

    We also made it possible to by Raffle Tickets online yesterday. The baskets have to be picked up in the Rutland area.

    Thank you again from all of The Feline Connection community!
