Mature responsible adults are needed at our Cat Adoption Center at PETSMART in Waterbury, Connecticut. If you can dedicate 1 morning or afternoon a week to help us with kennel work and playing with our cats we could use your help.
The cats love getting special attention and playtime out of their cages. Volunteering is very rewarding because you are helping these animals in need.
Must be 21 years old to apply. Please call Hanna at 203- 597- 1236.
Rose Hope Animal Refuge relies solely on donations to do their work. You can donate items that we need for our animals care:
Large Garbage Bags
Canned Cat and Kitten Food
IAMS Cat, Dog and Puppy Food
Fresh Step Cat Litter
Blankets and Beds
Frontline or Advantage
During Kitten season, KMR (kitten formula) is in great demand.
Hanna can meet you at Petsmart to pick up items by calling her at 203-597-1236 or come visit us during adoption us to drop off a needed item on our wish list.
Rose Hope Animal Refuge is always in need of safe and reliable foster homes for our animals. Kitten season is especially stressful. Foster families must be able to provide care and food to the animals and to transport them to adoption events or to the vet. Rose Hope Animal Refuge takes care of all medical needs. Dogs and puppies need foster homes too! Please call Hanna at 203- 597- 1236.
Request an application by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org,
with the Subject Heading: (Name of Animal), your name, and veterinarian’s name & phone number.
We’ll email you an application; easily done on an iPhone.
If you are approved, you may be able to adopt the animal on Saturday or Sunday, and take him/her home with you pending a meet & greet, completion of application, veterinarian reference check, and interview w/Hanna.
PLEASE CALL HANNA WITH ANY ADOPTION QUESTIONS & INQUIRIES AT 203-597-1236. Completion of an application does not mean that you are approved. You MUST have a veterinarian reference to adopt. When we check a veterinarian reference on your current or past pets, we are looking for a vaccine history, spay/neuter and if you have followed through with veterinarian recommendations for your pet(s). All pets must be up to date on vaccines and spayed or neutered. For adoption of DOGS you must own your own home.
All our animals over 4 months of age are spayed or neutered. When adopting a puppy or kitten under 4 months of age, you must sign a contract agreeing to spay or neuter by 6 months of age. You must be 21 years of age to adopt. You will also meet with one of our adoption coordinators for an interview.
Sometimes there is more than one application for a particular animal. We choose the home that best suits the pet. We reserve the right to refuse an adoption. Most of our animals have been through some kind of trauma in their short lives. Our animals can not speak for themselves, so as their guardians we speak for them.
