Newtown residents Monica Roberto and Kim Coleman had a dream – to establish a sanctuary to care for, house and assist in the adoption of homeless and neglected animals.
For the last five years, their organization, The Animal Center, has worked tirelessly to achieve this goal.
Roberto and Coleman began the journey by establishing a cat rescue program. To date, The Animal Center, with their legions of volunteer members and supporters, have placed or cared for more than 1,500 cats and kittens. The success of this program is a testament to the tremendous dedication of this group.
