We are husband and wife team Vincent and Michelle Gugliuzza. We operate two non-profit organizations, Focus On Ferals, Inc., and Strays Unlimited, Inc. We are nonprofit 501c3 organizations and all donations are tax-deductible.
Both of our organizations are no-kill, meaning any animal that does not get adopted stays will us for its entire life. We have many cats with special needs, including AIDS positive cats (non-transferable to humans), cats with cerebellar hypoplasia and blind cats. We help private residents, businesses, apartment complexes, etc. with stray and/or feral cats through trap, neuter, adopting out. We have great success taming feral cats and finding good homes for them. One of our goals is to end the overpopulation and abuse of stray and feral cats and educate the public about the sad situation of homeless cats.
We do rescue small dogs, depending on the situation.
All of our kittens and cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies and distemper, and are tested for feline AIDS and leukemia before they go to their new homes.
If you are interested in adopting a cat from us please click on the application button here on our Petfinder page or go to our website, focusonferalsinct.org. and go on the Cats and Kittens For Adoption page, click on the application button and submit one there. The adoption fee is listed on the application.
Once we receive the application, we review it. If it is approved you will hear from us within three days to set up a time to meet our cats.
We do not have regular business hours. It is by appointment only.
If you would like to make a monetary donation of any amount, it can be mailed to Focus On Ferals, Inc., P.O. 56 Uncasville, CT 06382, or called in using a credit/debit card to Colchester Veterinary Hospital at (860) 537-3435. They will apply it directly to our account.
