Our Partners in Caring for Cats

Tree House cannot do its work alone and is privileged to have many partners who collaborate with us and support our work.



Merrick Pet Care provides wet and dry food for our resident cats. In addition, every Tree House adopter goes home with a bag of Merrick cat food and a gift certificate for another bag. Merrick’s food donation is equal to tens of thousands of dollars. It not only provides quality nutrition to our cats but helps Tree House extend its services by decreasing shelter expenses.

For many years, Pioneer Pet has provided SmartCat Litter for our resident cats. They also provide a coupon for a bag of litter for every new adopter to ease the transition to their new home.  SmartCat litter is All Natural, made 100% from farmed grasses. Because of Pioneer Pet, Tree House does not have to purchase large amounts of litter, saving money, and, thereby, we can serve more cats.


Tree House has been a member of the Bissell’s Partners for Pets Program for several years enabling Tree House to participate in events, sweepstakes, and apply for grant funding.

Tree House also relies on other animal welfare partners to carry out our work.  Two significant shelter partners are Anti-Cruelty Society of Chicago and Chicago Animal Care and Control (CACC).  


Anti-Cruelty Society

Tree House partners with the Anti-Cruelty Society (ACS) in an array of ways.  We transfer cats from ACS when they would be best cared for in our environment, usually cats who have complex health issues.  We also participate in staff cross-education and sharing resources, when possible.

Chicago Animal Care and Control

Tree House transfers homeless cats from CACC on a regular basis. Annually, we admit nearly 150 cats from CACC who would have nowhere else to turn.  Many are seniors, sick, or injured. Tree House helps them recover and find adoptive homes. Tree House also places feral cats that are brought to CACC in Cats At Work sites, saving the cats’ lives and providing valuable rodent control in both commercial and residential settings.

Professionals in the animal welfare sector participate in the Society for Animal Welfare Administrators (SAWA).  Senior leaders at Tree House are members, attend conferences, and frequently present to peers at these meetings. Tree House values the opportunity to learn from the experiences of other shelters and to share what we have learned, as well.
