My name is Barbara Weber and I am the Founder of BARB’S PRECIOUS RESCUE AND ADOPTION CENTER in Palatine Illinois. Since we opened our doors in 2014, we have been a safe haven for more than 850 cats and kittens that have been abused, abandoned, homeless or neglected. Our Rescue provides food, shelter, and medical services -- including an on-site veterinarian -- all with the hope of finding a forever home for each and every animal in our care. We are 100% supported by public donations and a volunteer staff. We are a not-for-profit, 501(C)(3) organization with ALL funds directly assisting our animals. Barb’s Precious Rescue is a no-kill, cage-free shelter.
While our community and staff have consistently demonstrated the will and desire to increase our capabilities, we’re desperately missing one critical component: space.
Therefore, the time has come for us to expand! Thanks to the generosity of our Architect Julie Burroughs, we now have initial plans to increase and upgrade our Palatine facility. The addition will include space for mature and special needs cats, and a separate location for kittens and their Moms.
Not only will this help us continue our commitment to cats and kittens, but it will allow us to begin helping dogs and puppies, so we will create an entire private area just for them.
Thanks to the Ehlert Family Foundation, we have received a $350,000 grant that will cover a large portion of our construction costs. Words cannot express our gratitude!
We also received a very generous donation from the Wayne and Claudette Johnson Family. We truly appreciate your kind support of our Rescues!
Now, here is my ask of you…
We still need to cover $150,000 in associated construction expenses for our campaign, so please consider helping us meet our 2017 Capital Campaign goal with a donation.
