Fellow cat lovers...we need your help! Former Tree House resident KittyPurr (adopted in 2001) needs a 6-month foster home. From mid-June through mid-December 2015 her guardians will be traveling the country for work, going to different towns every two weeks. The stress of all this travel is not what is best for a senior cat, nor is returning to a busy shelter environment. That's why we need YOU!

Are you, or someone you know willing to take her in for this period of time? Her guardians would cover all expenses related to her care and provide all food, litter, medication and supplies. She takes daily pill. She is 14 years old and very sweet! Please consider opening your home to this beautiful girl, who is so in need right now.

If you've been thinking about adopting a cat, this may be the perfect practice round!

If you are interested in fostering KittyPurr or you have questions, contact Catherine at

About Tree House Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

Tree House is a humane organization that promotes the inherent value of every animal and strives to educate the public about proper and responsible animal care, with a focus on the care and placement of stray cats with special physical and emotional needs. We are committed to finding every healthy and treatable animal a home.

Tree House was founded in 1971 and since that time we have expanded and enhanced our programs and services to become the largest, no-kill, cageless shelter for sick, injured, abused and neglected cats in the Chicagoland area. To date we have found homes for nearly 14,000 cats. In addition to our focus on the rehabilitation and adoption of stray cats, we offer many other valuable programs and services, including our Free Spay/Neuter Program, Pet Loss Grief Support Group, Humane Investigations Team, Youth Volunteer Program, Animal-Assisted Therapy, Behavior Hotline, Pet Food Pantry, and Education Outreach Program.

Our Adoption Process...

At Tree House, trained adoption counselors interview prospective adopters to understand their needs, and then adopters are escorted to the Adoption Floor to choose their future friend. Adopters are encouraged to take as much time as they need to find a cat. All adoption applications stay on file for three months so please don't feel that you need to rush to choose a companion cat right away.

Your adoption fee of $85 covers the cost of your cat's care at Tree House including: spay or neuter, deworming, flea treatment, FIV and FeLV testing, AVID microchip, veterinary examination, and all necessary vaccinations. We also give a 30-day health guarantee on all of our adoptions.
