Some of our cats & kittens are in rotation at Petsmart in Peru, IL (5243 IL-251, Peru, IL 61354). Come out and see them! We will have cats in the store's adoption center until Sunday, Dec. 18. In addition, there is an adoption event at the store this weekend, Dec. 12-13. Volunteers will be on hand to facilitate adoptions. This is the purr-fect opportunity to adopt a new family member for Christmas!



Cindy came to us with her 3 babies with the intention that she would be returned to her neighborhood. However, we discovered she's a very friendly girl, and we'd love to find her a real home. She's about 3 years old (as of October 2016) and very sweet once she warms up. She's pretty good with other cats, but tends to slap the males away when they get too close. Can you blame her? All of her babies are happily adopted, and she's still waiting. She's a little shy, but once you give her a few days to acclimate to her new surroundings, she really opens up. She's very loving once you give her a chance.



All of our cats have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed, microchipped, and tested for FIV/FeLV. Our adoption fee structure is as follows:

  • $75 - Kittens/Young (Up to 1 year)
  • $50 - Adult (1 Year +)
  • $25 - Senior (7 Years +)
  • $0 - FIV +
  • There is an additional $25 fee for cats considered to be an "Exotic" (Siamese, Persian, etc...)
  • If you are a senior (65 years or older) you can adopt any of our senior cats (7 years or older) for only $10! Please mention this special when applying.

While we try to keep our animal listings up-to-date online, sometimes the age range may be labelled incorrectly. Please don't hesitate to contact us for the most up-to-date information on a particular cat.  Our cats are shown by appointment.

If you are interested in adopting or would like to meet our cats, please fill out our adoption application online at www.safehousepets.org/adopt and a volunteer will contact you promptly.



About Safe House Animal Rescue League

About Our Rescue Group...

For the homeless, abused, or neglected animals of the Illinois Valley area, Safe House is a beacon of hope, a place for second chances, a warm spot to rest tired heads, to heal wounds and start anew.

Safe House Animal Rescue League is a 501(c)3 (nonprofit) organization run exclusively by dedicated volunteers. We are implementing innovative and progressive life-saving programs throughout central Illinois that pave the way for No-Kill communities where no pets are killed simply for being homeless.

We focus on rescuing pets who are at the greatest risk of being killed in shelters or animal control facilities and have saved hundreds of lives through our adoption programs. Safe House is a foster home based rescue where all of our pets live in home environments with real families until they are adopted. This prepares them for a successful transition to your home and allows us to know each pet as an individual.

Please get involved and help us save more lives – volunteer, foster, donate.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Safe House is based in LaSalle County, IL. Our pets live in foster homes so pets are shown by appointment only, but our volunteers will meet you any time of day or night to introduce you to the pet of your dreams. We also partner with our local Petsmart for adoption events.
