Tree House Humane Society and Chicago are doing something right.
After all, at a time when too many shelters all around the country are having difficulty adopting cats into homes and at the same time cat population is on the decline (by nine percent according to the American Veterinary Medical Association), this Chicago No Kill and cageless all-cat shelter broke their all-time adoption record in 2012. Over 800 cats found new homes in 2012! Making matters even more impressive, nearly all the cats are former (friendly) strays, and many also have special needs – some were missing a leg, others have the feline immunodeficiency virus, diabetes, even visually impaired as some examples.
