Tree House Humane Society, right here in Chicago, is one of the most innovative cat shelters in America. Executive director Dave deFuniak talks about that rich history, and member of Board of Directors Barry Fulk speaks to the upcoming Black Cat Ball on Steve Dale’s Pet World, WGN Radio.
Listen HERE for cat talk on WGN…about how this shelter was brave enough to years ago use the term ‘no kill.’ And Tree House was among the first – likely the first in America, to house cats socially (not in cages), to support and partake in and advocate for trap-neuter-return, and to adopt cats with feline immunodeficiency virus.
The Black Cat Ball is Tree House’s premier fundraising event of the year! Tree House is in the process of building an all new shelter, a facility which is likely to lead the industry.Complete with a new state-of-the-art adoption center, cat cafe, education center for the community – the new Tree House shelter to open in 2016 in Rogers Park
around every corner! The Black Cat Ball is will celebrate and honor Tree House volunteers, supporters, staff and 44 years of companion animal rescue and adoptions, life-saving services and programs. on Saturday, November 21 at the Redmoon Theater, 2120 S. Jefferson. I will co-emcee with my old and ancient pal Paul Lisnek, host of “Politics Tonight” on CLTV and WGN news contributor.
