Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Community Cats

The Community Cats program delivers Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) services to feral and stray cats living within our communities. We are a sponsoring organization under Cook County ordinance 07-0-72, "Managed Care of Feral Cats," which allows us to recruit, train, and provide long-term support for colony caretakers--members of the community who provide continuing direct support of feral cat colonies. Additionally, Tree House Humane Society offers a Cats at Work program, which places sterilized and vaccinated feral cats in residential and commercial settings to provide rodent control.

Population(s) Served

The Adoption program places over 1000 cats each year. All adopters are provided with counseling regarding integration of their new pet into their household and sign an adoption agreement. Adoption counselors follow up with adopters one week after, and again one month after, the adoption.

Population(s) Served

Community Services provided by Tree House Humane Society include: (1) the Pet Food Pantry for pet owners with financial challenges; (2) Animal Assisted Therapy in which volunteers bring Tree House cats for visits with residents of senior care facilities; (3) Animal Behavior Counseling to help people resolve behavioral issues with their pets; and (4) Humane Education via presentations at schools, civic groups, conferences, etc.
