Our Pet List

“A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.” Ernest Hemingway

Featured Pet of the Month:

Mackie is a very handsome white tabby male who is approximately 11 months old.  Mackie came to SCP as an orphan found in Bridgeport. He is a quirky guy who loves to play and get belly rubs but can get spooked very easily.  We are looking for a quiet, patient home for this sweet boy.  Do you or someone you know have room in your heart and home to give this sweet, wonderful guy the loving home he so needs?

Mark the Date: Spring is Here!

Just a reminder that we will be holding our annual Spring Tag Sale on Saturday, May 14, 2016 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Check out our May newsletter for the sale location. Our tag sales are our biggest fundraisers. We will be accepting donations after May 1st for the sale. Household items, books (fiction only), tools, jewelry, toys, and small furniture are some items that we are in need of. Unfortunately, we cannot accept large pieces of furniture as we have nowhere to store them. 100% of all proceeds from our tag sales go to help the rescued kitties we take into our foster homes. Please call (203) 375-7009 for drop off locations.



Cat Tips: A Pet Sitter Can Bring Peace of Mind:

Most cats don't enjoy traveling or being boarded, so if you're going away on vacation this summer, you might want to consider hiring a pet sitter. A good pet sitter will visit with your cat a couple of times a day, play with them, give them food and water, check on their health, and clean the litterbox. Many pet sitters are trained in animal first aid and are experienced in administering medications. Get recommendations from your veterinarian, or from friends who have used a sitter's services before.

Our website is revised every 3 weeks or so. We also post emergency adoptions and other short notice events on the site regularly.

WHO WE ARE

Stratford Cat Project, Inc. (SCP) is a federally recognized, non-profit organization. We are a group of residents concerned about the feral cat population and dedicated to rescuing the homeless and abandoned cats of Stratford. SCP is an all volunteer organization. We are not a shelter. All the cats that we help are fostered in our homes. We are presently operating solely on private donations and fund-raising. All proceeds and donations go directly to help Stratford cats.

VOLUNTEERS!

Volunteers Needed: Love cats? Have free time? Want to help? The Stratford Cat Project is always in need of volunteers. Fostering, helping out at fundraising events and adoptions and soliciting donations are just some of the ways you can participate. Please call us at 203-375-7009 if you are interested in helping our feline friends.

FOSTER HOMES

There is so much joy in knowing you have helped us save some kittens or adult cats in need as you help them get ready for their forever home. We furnish all supplies needed to care for our cats/kittens and provide a support system. Our adoptable kitties numbers are always growing, and it is sometimes necessary to turn strays away as our current foster homes become overcrowded. Please, if you can help, or if you know someone who can help, call 203-375-7009 today.

Our Wish List

URGENT: We presently have 54 cats that we are housing. We are always in need of food and litter. While our foster home number is lower we also have a food bank that provides food to families that cannot afford to feed their pets and helps caretakers of feral cat colonies. If you can make a donation, please call us at (203) 375-7009. Also, donations can be dropped off at 85 Champion Terrace, Stratford (on back patio) weather permitting.
Another way you can help - Please save all your cat food and litter coupons for us. Also, we save the PAW Points from Fresh Step Litter and redeem for coupons for free litter. Coupons and PAW Points can be mailed to: Stratford Cat Project, P.O. Box 1261, Stratford, 06615 or can be dropped off at any of our events.
Supply Donations Always Needed: We are in need of Friskies canned and dry food, wet wipes, trash bags 4, 8 and 13 gallons size, cat condos, litter, stamps, Walmart gift cards, bleach, scratching posts, rugs for cages, small plastic bags and paper towels.

SPONSORS

Want to help but don't have time to volunteer or foster? How about sponsoring a cat? A sponsor is someone who is willing to make a monthly donation for the care of one of our long term feline friends. As we all know, kittens are easy to find homes for. Sometimes it takes much longer to find a home for the adult ones. A sponsor will receive a picture of the cat they sponsor and are always welcome to visit. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please call Karin at 375-7009.

ADOPTING A FRIEND

We do require that an adoption application and agreement be filled out. There is an adoption fee of $125.00 for adult cat (1 year and up) and $150.00 for kitten (up to 11 months) All of our cats (adult or kitten) are spayed/neutered before adoption. All of our cats are tested, wormed and have received their age appropriate shots.
