How Kitties for Kids Works

Kitten Associates is a small, home-foster based cat rescue group located in Newtown, CT. Due to the recent tragedy in our town, we're going to open our doors, by appointment only, to residents of this community. We know the healing power of time spent petting a cat or watching them play with a toy can bring to a child and his or her parents. Each session will last for 30 minutes, but longer periods or repeat visits can be requested. For safety reasons we can only allow children over the age of 4 to meet our foster cats and kittens.

After visiting our kittens we'll be giving your child a FREE plush kitty as a way for us to give back and say THANK YOU to the people of Newtown for letting us be a part of this community.

If your child is under the age of 4 and over 3 years of age, we can provide a plush kitty instead of having a visit with our real kitties.

We're here to help put smiles back on your child's face and we hope that in our way we can do that.

 

For more information or to set up a visit, just email us at info@kittenassociates.org

 

Unspeakable Tragedy & Offer to Help

Kitten Associates was born and raised in Sandy Hook, Connecticut-a district of Newtown, CT. As the Founder of K.A., and a resident of this town for over 21 years, I extend my deepest, most sincere condolences to the families of this town-the result of a tragic shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School this morning.

We're a tight-knit community where everyone is your friend. I know that won't change and perhaps it will help us be even closer. We realize that cat rescue may not line up with ways to help the residents of this town, but we'd like to offer to any families with children over the age of 4 to come visit our kittens and have some time playing with them and petting them. If that would help your child smile, don't hesitate to contact us at info@kittenassociates.org and we'll set up a time you can come visit our furry friends.
