Tree House Humane Society is “a cageless, no kill humane organization specializing in the rescue and rehabilitation of sick and injured stray cats”. They are committed to decreasing the feline overpopulation through programs such as low cost spay and neuter and TNR, as well as are nationally recognized experts in feline care and behavior. Currently they sponsor 150 colonies and more than 400 cats throughout Chicago, have sterilized over 6,000 cats since the opening of their BDVM Spay/Neuter Clinic in 2009, and have adopted out over 16,000 stay cats since the facility opened in 1971. They also offer a Pet Food Pantry Program to help those with companion animals that are on a low or fixed income, and help those that have outdoor managed feral cat colonies that practice TNR.
