Purrnino, the purrfect name for a purrfect kitty! This little man came to Tree House Humane Society in April of 2016 after being pulled from a traditional shelter. This boy loves to play the room. He’ll sit in the middle of a crowded area but will play hard to get if you try to pet him! He would be best in a home with a confident adopter who can provide a quiet and calm environment with plenty of vertical space. He would also do best without young children or high prey driven dogs or energetic dogs who love to chase. Purrnino may be shy during first introductions but after extra TLC and patience in the new home, you'll have a forever best friend. Purrnino will also need an adopter who is comfortable giving injections twice a day to help control his diabetes insipidus. Purrnino loves laps and cuddles once he feels secure and comfortable in his surroundings! Adopt this adorable, big eyed, lover boy today!
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.
* A photo I.D. * A second I.D. with current address and phone number (we recommend a phone bill). * If you rent, we need your landlord's name and phone number, or a copy of your lease stating that you are allowed to have cats. * All children under 12 in the household are required to be present for the entire adoption process.
