Tree House Humane Society is a cage-free, no kill, humane organization specializing in the rescue and rehabilitation of sick and injured stray cats. They were founded in 1971 when a group of families in Chicagoland united to form an organized network of animal welfare agents. By 1975 the network had grown and the founders legally incorporated as a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, and purchased the well-known property at 1212 West Carmen Avenue. Tree House quickly gained a reputation for offering valuable advice on healthcare, lost pets and household dangers. Currently, Tree House is Chicagoland’s largest cage-free, no kill shelter for sick, injured and abandoned cats. Since its founding, Tree House has found homes for more than 16,000 cats and kittens. In addition, they offer many other programs and services including the Free Spay/Neuter Program, TNR Feral Friends Program, Pet Loss Grief Support Group, Humane Investigations Team, Youth Volunteer Program, Animal-Assisted Therapy, Behavior Hotline, Pet Food Pantry, and Education Outreach Program.
Their Mission Statement is as follows:
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 and to helping lead the way to a No-Kill nation.
Tree House is a non-profit charity, and all donations are fully tax-deductible. They do not accept any federal or state funding.
