The non-profit Treetops Kitty Café is dedicated to finding permanent homes for rescued cats. We sell pet supplies, drinks & snacks, and for a small donation fee, visitors can sit & mingle with our many adorable adoptable cats.
Because we are a non-profit, and adoption fees cover only a fraction of the expense of vet care for our cats, we rely heavily on donations to remain open. Please visit our sponsorship page to see our incentives at different levels of sponsorship!
If you haven’t heard about them, cat cafés are a growing trend, with dozens opening across the US in the last few years. They have been extremely popular and have helped increase the number of cats adopted while spreading the word about rescuing instead of buying a pet.
The Treetops Kitty Cafe in Kennett Square, PA is run by the non-profit Treetops Animal Rescue and, opening in August 2017, it was the 4th cat cafe in PA (in 2016 two opened in Philadelphia and one in Pittsburgh). People pay a small donation to sit and mingle with the adoptable cats roaming free and can purchase drinks or snacks (or bring their own from our many great local eateries). We also have a small retail section selling premium brands of Verus & Annamaet for dogs & cats along with other supplies for cats such as litter and toys (visit our Products page for more information).
Under ABOUT on the top menu, you can find more information including FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions), Hours and Fees, and the Kitty Lounge Rules. In particular, children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult and those 14-17 must have signed permission from their parents (see Waivers and Volunteer Contracts under the ABOUT menu). Check out our special activities under EVENTS and please CONTACT US if you are interested in adopting, volunteering, fostering or donating!
TreeTops Animal Rescue has adopted out over 1,500 pets since 2006, saving them from being killed or homeless. We do not have a shelter and rely on volunteer foster families to care for our rescued animals as pets in their homes until they are adopted. However one of the most successful ways for our more outgoing cats to find their forever homes was in the Paws & Claws Pet Store, where a steady stream of customers met the cats running loose and fell in love with them. When the store decided to close, we decided to open the Treetops Kitty Cafe in the hopes that even more cats could find their forever homes. And because the Cafe is non-profit, all revenue from sales and donations goes towards our operating costs and for the care of rescued animals!
