9 Purebred Cat Rescue Groups

Here is a roundup for some brilliant cat rescue groups across the US that specialize in purebred cats. I know what it is like to want a particular breed but also really want to adopt a pet in need rather than buy from breeders. So here is a list of rescue groups that have some amazing cats for adoption. Of course you should check your local shelter first but if you live near one of these organizations it is worth checking out.

All of these organizations run off of donations and volunteers. So if you have time or money to donate they are always looking. You can also help by sharing this blog post to help spread the word.

    I think it’s wonderful that these rescues exist. I know a lot of people like certain personality types or the look of a specific breed. Personally, I wouldn’t feel right buying from a breeder, but I would feel good about adopting a purebred from one of these rescues. I’ll share this with my Facebook friends. Thank you for raising awareness about breed-specific rescues!

    It just shows you…even purebreds can end up in a shelter. We’re glad these rescue groups exist. Thanks for sharing.

    I notice there are not many rescues on the East Coast! Spots and stripes is now closed. Northeast?

      I’m still searching for Florida. You can always search petfinder by breed. Please let me know if you find any new ones!

    Is it possible for me to adopt a cat/kitten? And I handle the shipping fee to Philippines..

      I do not work directly with any cat rescues. It is much better for you to look local animal rescue groups near you.
