overview MCR

Save-A-Pet is currently embarking on Phase III of our Main Cat Room Upgrade project! We are planning to purchase brand-new cat condos and living areas of various sizes, providing the vertical territory that cats crave and need. The condos will also offer all of our feline friends a personal, secure space, allowing them to adjust to shelter life and stress levels while still “showcasing” them to potential adopters. Additionally, certain condos and living areas will be designated for adoptable cats who require a special diet, or have non-contagious medical needs.

We are pleased to offer you a unique opportunity to honor or memorialize a loved one, companion animal, or animal lover by naming a condo or living area in our Main Cat Room. In recognition of your generosity, a plaque (with your quote or tribute) will be placed on your chosen selection for a two-year (renewable) period.  Imagine the pride in having a room or area of our adoption center named in honor of yourself, or in honor or memory of a loved one.  Know the joy of providing our cats with cozy, comfortable, and private spaces as they await their forever homes!

You can help make their lives a little better!

MCR Cat Condo


Save-A-Pet, a no-kill rescue and adoption center in Grayslake, Illinois — operating under the mantra of ‘Help, Heal, Home’ — is in the process of a long-overdue upgrade of its Main Cat Room.* Our vision to create a peaceful sanctuary, along with a stimulating, fun, and healthy environment for our cats is becoming a reality. The room’s design concept was donated by Rachel Bird of Once Upon a Design, and this soon-to-be-transformed space will greatly enhance the lives of our cats as they await their new families.

The new layout was created around the cats’ needs, while allowing visitors/potential adopters the best environment to meet our feline residents. The design will feature multi-level cat towers, discounted by the Mason Company. The room will also include solid, wood-constructed cat trees (made in the USA) — since cats prefer vertical space.

With help from Barron Paint in Grayslake, IL, Benjamin Moore is our paint of choice. We are selecting No-VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) paint, which is environmentally friendly and non-toxic. Feldco is also donating new windows. We have also consciously selected the calming color purple for the walls, as this color has been proven in research studies to significantly reduce stress in cats. Our healthy design approach with material selections will significantly benefit our cats and improve their quality of life.

And now a few comments from the perspective of two of our feline residents — Gary (a handsome orange tabby), and Mattie (a black and white beauty), pictured below:

Do you realize how exciting this is for all of us, a renovated space designed completely around us, in order to make our lives the best possible until we make our love connection with our new families? We have been calling Save-A-Pet home for a while, so needless to say, we can’t wait for all the work to be done. We are amazed at the generosity so far and, of course, all the hard work that has already gone into this project. Your donation will make a real difference in improving the quality of life for our feline friends. Thank you for visiting our page, and for your contribution. We hope to meet you soon in our new digs!’
