This months partners

Each month, Boxes for Happiness teams up with five new shelters around the U.S.A., giving each shelter 5% of profits raised from that period.

To see our other shelters we’ve supported in the past, check out our previous partners page. If you have a shelter you think we should support, please get in touch to let us know—we’re always looking for new shelters in the US.


Windy Kitty Cafe

Jenny lived and breathed cat cafe research with her invaluable partners David Rotter Lindsey and Levi Kane and Olivia Tiner until it was reality. She opened her doors on December 18, 2017.  Though two cat cafes, first Purrfect Roast, then The Catcade, came along before TWK, she strives to make The Windy Kitty stand out a a place that is what one thinks of when they think of a traditional cat café.  No gimmicks, no frills, just a lot of cats in a place with all the ingredients one needs to relax. Jenny insists this be a place that all feel they belong and feel like they are in a second home, it was after all built off of public support and contributions. She can't wait to meet you at the happiest place in Chicago!

The Catcade

Mission: To rescue cats from life-threatening situations such as high-kill shelters and to find friendly, quality homes from them through our adoption program

The Catcade is a non-profit, arcade-themed cat rescue, and lounge. We simulate a home environment where instead of being in cages, the cats get to interact with friendly humans in a free-roam living room atmosphere. 

Alive Rescue

ALIVE Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, founded in March 2008 as a rescue and safe haven for animals. From March 2008 through November of 2012, we ran operations solely through the use of our foster homes. In November of 2011, we signed a lease for a building (“the Little Barn”) in the Roscoe Village neighborhood of Chicago.   For nearly one and a half years, we rehabbed and re-designed the original structure, preparing it to become our first adoption center.  On May 5th, 2013, we opened The Little Barn, celebrating this accomplishment with dozens of our donors, volunteers, and the animals we rescued.

Tree House Humane Society

Tree House is a humane organization that promotes the inherent value of every animal and strives to educate the public about proper and responsible animal care, with a focus on the care and placement of stray cats with special physical and emotional needs. We are committed to finding every healthy and treatable animal a home. Since its founding, Tree House has created innovative and progressive approaches to animal welfare that not only enhance the lives of companion animals in our community but also brings a greater awareness of animal welfare issues to the general public.

Harmony House for Cats

n June 1970 a group of animal lovers founded Animal Protective Association. For seven years, APA cared for cats in foster homes and at veterinary hospitals until each cat or kitten could be adopted into a loving home. A generous bequest in 1977 enabled us to purchase a two-flat building on Wrightwood Avenue, with large airy rooms for the cats to play and explore, and separate rooms for admission and introduction of new cats to the current residents. The warmth of this homelike environment allowed adopters to get to know the cats’ personalities before choosing a new pet. They could find out which one is a cuddly lapcat, or who wants to chase and wrestle with a cat buddy.
