Mission Statement

Tree House is a humane organization that promotes the inherent value of every animal and strives to educate the public about proper and responsible animal care, with a focus on the care and placement of stray cats with special physical and emotional needs. We are committed to finding every healthy and treatable animal a home.


Since its founding, Tree House has created innovative and progressive approaches to animal welfare that not only enhance the lives of companion animals in our community, but also bring a greater awareness of animal welfare issues to the general public.

Admission/Adoption: Tree House’s primary mission centers around the rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption of sick, injured, abused, and neglected cats. Since our founding in 1971, Tree House has rescued and adopted more than 25,000 cats.

Spay/Neuter Program: Tree House has sterilized more than 30,000 animals through public spay/neuter as well as our Community Cats/T-N-R (trap-neuter-return) program.

I have volunteered for Tree House doing a number of different tasks to help cats. I would recommend them because they help cats that really need help: sick, injured, abused, neglected stray cats. Also since they do a lot of education they affect a lot of people and how they treat animals. They also have a TNR (trap-neuter-return) program which is really important in counseling/educating people on how to help outdoor unowned (often feral) cats. I think when volunteering for any nonprofit you must be patient and consistent to prove you are serious and find the right niche for yourself. Tree House is a great place. They could really use you as a volunteer, or donor, or potential adopter of a special needs or non-special needs cat or kitten.
