Kitten Associates is a non-profit, 501(c)3, all-volunteer, home-foster based cat rescue located in Sandy Hook, CT. We rescue adults cats and kittens from kill-shelters or who are friendly strays that need safe harbor. We're one of the few, "No Kibble Fed" rescues in the country because species appropriate nutrition is a cornerstone of our rescue philosophy. We know that nutrition builds a lifetime of good health and we educate our adopters on how to provide that diet once their cat or kitten comes home. We also have a free cat behavior consultation service that strives to help anyone who needs it keep their cat in their home, so the cat doesn't lose their home and enter the shelter system.
We don't have a shelter or visiting hours. To learn more about the adoption process and how you can meet our adoptable cats, please visit our web site. We answer phones or (preferred) e-mail queries Wed-Sat from 12pm to 6pm. We are closed Sundays thru Tuesdays and on all Federal Holidays.
• Adopters must be over the age of 22 years old with a legal I.D.
• We're a "no kibble" rescue and require adopters to feed either or both a low carb, high protein, canned (wet) diet or a fresh diet (raw). We will guide all adopters onto food options (there are many to choose from) or they can opt to make their own (affordable and easy to do). Did you know that raw-fed cats don't have stinky poo?
• Must be financially prepared and able to to provide annual vet visits for their cat/kitten even if they seem healthy.
• Our web site has more information about our adoption policies in greater detail.
