Hi I am posting this here bc i trust you guys. I have a cat to give away to a good home. She needs medical attention, she has a nasty rash on her back it might just allergies but we don't have enough money to care for her we already have like 10 cats and 2 dogs. She just came into our house one day and we found her owners and gave her back but she kept comming to our house and last time we went to take her back the people had moved. There is also the problem that she will "mess" in any clothes lying on the floor b/c she is declawed (prevous owners) she has to have a special litter. But aside from this she is a sweet heart who gets along with all our animals and kids, she is a grey and white domestic long hair. So shes free to anyone on here that has had an account for awhile or at least past this post date. Our animal shelter is very quick to put animals down. I know b/c i worked there. So I don't want to take her there but she is suffering so I'm going to try this first. Just post back to me if you can help. I live in Cook County IL.

You might try <a href="http://www.petfinder.com" target="_blank">www.petfinder.com</a>. I know it's not the same as giving her to someone you know, but it's better than a shelter.

you are near Chicago? If you can't find anyone, you might want to try contacting Tree House Animal Foundation and see if they have space. They take in homeless cats and they are a no-kill shelter. Sounds like the kitty was abandon by its previous owners. They moved and didn't even come to find it. That is horrible.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.treehouseanimals.org/" target="_blank">http://www.treehouseanimals.org/</a>

I know that Tree House is for sure because I used to work there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> So, I think they will be very safe to call in case you need to.

I know that Tree House is very small and seem to take only really helpless cases. If you're in Chicago, I think that the Anti-Cruelty Society on Lasalle & Grand is a really great place. I got all 3 of my kitties there. They screen adopters carefully and place animals quickly into good homes. Everytime I've gone, even when I come back the next day, I don't recognize any of the cats. They are for sure no kill, I know one of the vets pretty well.

The Anti-Cruelty Society euthanizes.<br><br><br><br>
Tree House will take cats that have been abandoned by their owners like if they move and abandon the animal or the owners die.

I still think that anti-cruelty is a better choice due to the foot traffic, I had never even heard of Tree House before a store owner sent me there to buy a cat tree from them. I've been to a lot of cat shelters and know a lot of people who work in the field. I wouldn't be shocked to learn that Anti-Cruelty euthanizes a small amount of animals that are not fit for adoption. I think that they do a great deal of good. Are you saying that you think that they euthanize on a regular basis?

You could also try strays in the garden, paws, TLC in Lockport, also plainfield humane society. What part of Cook are you in? I'm at the far south end and familiar with some in my area. I can't take on another cat right now (and I have many others that I could take anyway). You could also check at vets in your area, many will do work with rescue organizations and may know of more no kill ones in your area.
