ALL ABOUT DOGS and CATS   Resource Center for Canine & Feline Lovers
Purebred Cat Breed Rescue  provides lists of Purebred Rescues (clubs and groups) by
breed so that you can easily find out if there is cat waiting for you, or find a home for
your cat. You can also post inquiries to the Purebred Cat Rescue community bulletin
board. They provide advice on choosing a cat and cat care, as well as information about
cat health, animal welfare advocacy, and the animal rights movement. Purebred Cat
Breed Rescue is international in scope.

Purebred Cat Breed Rescue represents the efforts of the organized Cat Fancy to provide
a safety net for Purebred cats. The alliance of cat fanciers, rescuers, and cat lovers  are
actively supported by the
Cat Fanciers' Association, Inc. (CFA),  The International Cat
Association, Inc. (TICA) and the American Cat Fanciers Association, Inc. (ACFA), as well as
by cat lovers from all over the world.

Each breed of cat has its own special characteristics and needs. Some need more care
than others. For a quick guide to personlaity, size, grooming requirements, activity level,
and the breed's average child-friendly and pet-friendly rating, please see the chart
Cat Breed Characteristics
Purebred Cat Rescue organizations are made up of people who are expert in
identifying the various breeds of cats and dealing with the specific needs of
the breed(s) that they rescue. They  promote & rescue purebred cats and  
endeavor to place these purebred cats into caring, loving homes for adoption.
Purebred Cat Rescue
Breed Rescue cats may come from Animal Shelters, Humane Societies and sometimes
from individuals that have no other choice  than to relinquish their pet. These cats are
examined by a
veterinarian  for Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus
Infection, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, wormed and

Rescued cats are
NOT used for breeding nor are they available for breeding.

Rescues provide temporary homes for these cats. In those cases where the rescued cat
has previously acquired any problematic attitude or behavior, Rescues work with the
animal to correct these problems before placement.  Breed Rescuers work with these
animals within their own homes, not in shelters.

Cat Breed rescue groups are usually nonprofit, all volunteer organization and the bulk of
donations go directly to help rescue at-risk purebreds. Administrative costs are in large
part covered by the cat registries who support them and by volunteers who donate their
time and expertise. Every cat they rescue is spayed and neutered before placement
