This morning on the NBC Local News an advertisement was displayed for Barbs Precious Rescue, a feline rescue and adoption center that Barb established in Palatine, Illinois (313 North Quentin Road). She began her rescue with felines, but plans to add canine rescues by the year 2016 when they are able to expand. Currently this home-style rescue can house 50 cats/kittens at any one said time.
The mission of Barb’s Precious Rescue and Adoption Center is simple, including wanting it to be:
- Be a safe and humane haven for cats and dogs that have been abused, abandoned or neglected
- Provide medical care and a healing environment for the recovery of sick and injured animals
- Provide food, shelter, socialization, and a loving environment for all animals in our care
- Manage a network of individuals willing to provide quality temporary foster homes for rescued animals
· Identify loving “forever homes” through our professional adoption services
Since there is an overabundance of kitties that have been let loose to survive on their own, thankfully there are such individuals willing to help rescue them and do everything possible to locate their forever home. Barb’s Precious Rescue supplies a safe and humane haven for such kitties that have been abused, abandoned or neglected. They provide them with medical attention, food, shelter, and most importantly, love!
Barb’s Precious Rescue and Adoption Center is a volunteer, not-for-profit, 501 (c)(3) organization. Their funds directly assist the rescued animals. They are a No-Kill facility and even take in severely injured cats that require extensive medical attention – even surgery.
The compassion that this rescue shows stresses their level of commitment. They dare to care for and socialize each of their rescued friends. Once the animals recover, they are introduced to a cage-free environment; one in which they are free to roam and get to know other cats of varying ages and the volunteers before they are ever placed for adoption. The sick and/or injured animals get to have their very own quarters; a quiet environment where they can recover.
The great thing about small pet rescue organizations like this one is that the animals are treated individually – according to their own needs. They are each prescribed the best possible care that can be provided in order to get them back on their feet and ready to face their forever family when they are ready to do so. Larger organizations try, but are not always able to deliver this type of personalized service!
Barb’s is doing great. They only opened in September and already have several kitties off the street, recovering and ready for a new forever home.
Thankfully, Barb’s Precious Rescue and Adoption Center thought to advertize on a major broadcasting channel. This way they get the exposure that is needed to help them place the felines in good homes of their very own while setting themselves up for success. Check them out at http://barbspreciousrescue.org/.
