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.
