Come meet us – our bags are packed and we’re ready to go home . . . “

We are so excited to announce that we have teamed up with Community Animal Rescue Effort – CARE to foster cats and kittens looking for good home!

From C.A.R.E.: “The majority of our cats and dogs come from Chicago Animal Care & Control. We sometimes get cats from a downstate shelter in Hoopeston, Illinois, and occasionally from other sources. We prefer to help the local animals here in Cook County, and help make Chicago a more humane, no-kill city. We also accept owner surrender pets, as space allows.”
Go give their Facebook page a like, and check out all of their cats (https://carenorthshore.org/cats) and dogs (https://carenorthshore.org/dogs) that are looking for their furever homes!

Low-dust, clay-free, and perfectly clump-able, it’s made with Japanese Free litter scoop and $5 offHinoki wood and green tea. Why Hinoki Wood and Green Tea? Bacteria are often the culprit when it comes to litter box odors. Hinoki Wood and Green Tea team up to suppress bacteria and odor naturally!

Hinoki Wood: Hinoki Wood, or Japanese Cypress, has long been a prized wood in Japan for the construction of temples, shrines and even hot tubs due to its resistance to humidity. By curbing humidity, Hinoki Wood naturally suppresses the growth of mold and bacteria which in turns help control odors.

Green Tea: Green Tea contains catechins, compounds with antioxidant properties. The catechins naturally help suppress the growth of bacteria and orders.

  • Cat food—both kibble and canned food
  • Cash donations to buy dog and cat food!

Donations can be dropped off here at our store.

Some fun facts:
– Even a $5.00 donation goes a long ways!
– the shelter is all-volunteer, with no paid employees.
– The co-founder pays for most things out of her own pocket.
– The local vet clinics no longer give a rescue discount so rescue pays full cost for all spays, neuters etc.
– In spite of the name, they rescue both dogs and cats!
