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 has been the Paws & Claws Pet Store in Kennett Square, where a steady stream of customers meet the cats running loose and fall in love with them. So when the store closed this year, we decided to open the Treetops Kitty Cafe, the 4th cat cafe in PA and the only one in our corner of the tri-state area outside of Philadelphia. Because the Cafe is non-profit, all revenue from sales and donations goes towards our operating costs and for the care of rescued animals. Go to our Donate! page on the top menu. to help us raise funds to keep this new non-profit TreeTops Kitty Café open!
If you haven’t heard about them, cat cafés are a growing trend, with dozens opening across the US in the last few years. 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). 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. At the Treetops Kitty Cafe, we also have a small retail section selling premium brands of Verus & Annamaet for dogs & cats and Oxbow for small mammals, along with other supplies for cats such as litter and toys.
Although our cats are sweet, social, and healthy, before entering the Cat Lounge area, all visitors must sign a waiver stating they understand the possible health risks of being around cats. Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult, and those 14-17 must have a signed waiver from their parents. Please read about hours and fees under ABOUT on the top menu!
