Nearly 30 cats, including five kittens, were rescued Thursday night when a tenant lost their rent in Waterford.
Thanks to social media, all but seven of the felines were adopted.
The Stonington Animal Rescue Project, a private organization, helped with the rescue after the owner was evicted.
"He thought he had more time He didn't. He needed to find a home right away for a large number of cats," said Rae-Jean Davis of the Stonington Animal Rescue Project.
The project founder credits social media platforms like Facebook for spreading the word. The organization has received thousands of posts.
The cats were checked out and have a clean bill of health.
According to the organization, the owner started out with three cats but he did not spay or neuter the felines.
"There are low cost spay neuter clinics that can help with that but he didn't so they were breeding," said Davis.
The organization has other pets available for adoption as well.
