If you're looking to add a new addition to your family in the New Year, then check out all the senior cat's looking for their new forever homes.

This week, the Animal Welfare Society in New Milford wants to bring attention to some senior cats who are still waiting for their new forever homes.

We're starting off 2021 with a bang, and a bunch of beautiful kitties that are a little bit older, but are well worth it, plus they all qualify for the shelters "senior to senior" program. If you are a senior, you can adopt any of these cats for no charge.

There are so many fantastic companions, and all you have to do is call the shelter and ask about any one of them. There's Captain, Juniper, Spot, Mrs. Who, Eugene Levy, and so many more.

Most people have the wrong idea about what a senior kitty is, basically they are cats that are over eight years old. Since most cats can be around for 15 years or more, you'll experience many happy years together. It's your chance to bring one of these cats into your life, and give them a great forever home too.

For more information, and a little bio on each kitty, just visit the Animal Welfare Society's Pet Finder page, and check out all the senior cats that are up for adoption.

Because of the COVID-19 restrictions, if you're interested in adopting one of the featured pets, any dog or cat at the shelter, you must first fill out an application on their website at aws-shelter.org. Once your application is approved, you can call them at 860-354-1350 and schedule your one-on-one limited contact meeting.

The shelter is always in need of items to help keep the animals safe and clean. Right now, they are looking for bleach, paper towels and dry cat food.

If you can contribute, you can drop off the items at the shelter at 8 Dodd Road in New Milford. Just let them know you're going to drop something off, and you can do it with no contact by just leaving it in front of their building. You can also check the Animal Welfare website for their Amazon wish list, and have the items delivered right to the shelter.
