Building Update – Construction of the new building is progressing quickly! With plumbing, electrical and HVAC now complete, the focus has shifted to siding, drywall and interior finishes. Drive by and you will see the amazing progress and a notably different silhouette. Our small farm-house Rescue will almost triple in space to 7500 square feet!
Expanding the Love Campaign Update - To date, we have raised nearly $600,000 but we still need your help to finish the building by raising an additional $400,000. Exciting sponsorship opportunities ranging from $500 to $50,000 are available. Please consider helping the Rescues in our community by donating towards our expansion. We are so grateful for any and all support. You are making a difference in their lives!
Extending a VERY heartfelt thank-you for the generous support of the Ehlert Family Foundation as well as that of the Johnson Family. We are also extremely grateful to the Scornavacco Family, Style by Carden Exteriors, Allied Building Products and Owens Corning for your generous donations of roofing labor and materials. We also appreciate the kind help of our Rescue supporters who have donated or bought bricks. Bricks are still available for anyone interested in commemorating the new facility with a personal message or corporate logo.
We've done some really wonderful things together and with your help, we'll do even more. Thank you for your kindness, love, and generosity, from all of your friends at Barb’s Precious Rescue and Adoption Center in Palatine, Illinois.

About Barb's Precious Rescue
BARB’S PRECIOUS RESCUE AND ADOPTION CENTER in Palatine Illinois opened its our doors in 2014. Since then, we have been a safe haven for more than 1000 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 were desperately missing one critical component: space.
Thanks to the generosity of our Architect Julie Burroughs, in 2017, we embarked upon a plan to increase and upgrade our Palatine facility. The new addition opened in early 2020 and includes space for mature and special needs cats, and a separate location for kittens and their Moms. Additional construction continues into phase II during 2021.
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.
