Days until the move
Streamlined For Felines
With more natural daylight, a residential feel, and Chicago’s first cat café, the new building's design fulfills every cat's fantasy.
Care for Everyone
A full-service public vet clinic will help us provide quality care for pets that otherwise wouldn't get the chance.

With increased space and diverse cat suites, the Real Tree House Cats will be less stressed and have plenty of opportunity to socialize.

Meet the Cats
The cast is always changing, but the action never stops.
The Road to the New Home
After 43 years and over 20,000 cats saved, Tree House is ready to move.
Tree House was founded as a coalition of foster homes
Opened one of the first cageless, no-kill facilities
Became the country's first shelter to house FIV+ cats
Created an in-house clinic and surgical suite
Added a second location and spay/neuter clinic in Bucktown
Adopted out our 20,000th cat
Broke ground at our new location, announcing Chicago's first cat café
As Chicago's first no-kill shelter,
Tree House has made huge strides in serving sick and injured cats and eliminating the homeless cat population, but we've only just begun. We're at a pivotal point in this production and need your support to help make Chicago a no-kill city.
