Tree house and covid-19


Tree House is committed to keeping everyone – including our staff, volunteers, visitors, and cats – as safe as possible while we continue to fulfill our mission. 

We are closely following CDC guidelines and continue to provide for our community through stray cats and kittens and to our community members who need help with feeding their pets, and with TNR and adoption services. 

Below is a list of our services that have reopened with modified hours or protocols. This list will continue to be updated as things develop, and we appreciate your understanding and flexibility.
