Marty, Ragdoll Rescue

Ragdoll cat rescue does exist, but there is not one national Ragdoll Rescue that exists in the United States. However, don’t feel disappointed because there are several options for Ragdoll Rescue.

Here is a list of Ragdoll Cat Rescue Groups in the USA:

Here are other options for finding Ragdoll cats in shelters or online:

If you go to www.petfnder.com or one of the free classified ad sites, like www.craigslist.com or www.kijiji.com, you will need to do a search for a Ragdoll cat. Lots of times, people misname a Ragdoll cat and think they are Birmans or Himalayans or Siamese. And visa versa. So be sure to search unde a number of names and be sure to re-do your search on a daily basis. You might also check cities that are around you. For example, if you live in Kansas City and there was a Ragdoll available in St. Louis, you might be willing to drive 4 hours to get your floppy Ragdoll cat.

Other Options:

contact us if you’re interested.

Also, be sure to check out your local shelters. They sometimes do not have the staff to allow them to post all their kitties for adoption. A quick call to your local shelter might reveal a Ragdoll that is in need.

Yahoo! Ragdoll Rescue Group

If you sign up for the Yahoo! Group (just requires a free Yahoo! ID), then you can get daily notices of Ragdolls or Ragdoll wannabes (cats that look like Ragdolls but probably have no “Ragdoll genes”) across the country. Or go to Google (see search box below) and type in (your area) shelter OR (your area) cat rescue.

    We have a rescue ragdoll. The original owner passed away and her family could not keep the cat. She is not getting along with the other rescues we have in our home and it’s not fair to her or the others.

    Is there any way that I can be contacted if one becomes available in the middle Tennessee area?

      While I would love to have that as an option, I simply do not have the resources right now. If you’re on Facebook, I would suggest following Floppycats on Facebook as all Rescues are always listed on there.

    She is an indoor only cat, and we have no mice so I would say she is not a mouser. From what I understand, she prefers not to be around young children because they can get rowdy.

    Are you aware of any rescues near Asheville NC that are specific to Ragdolls. I have an older friend who can no longer care for her 41/2 year-old Anna Belle. I am exploring all options for the best new home.
    Thank you,

    I live on the Central Coast in CA and there’s a rescue group, Purebreds Plus:
    They often have Ragdolls for rescue. They have fosters here on the Central coast and all over Northern Cali.
    Highly recommended.

  6. My Border Collie and my dearly loved cat both passed away within the last two years. I find that my husband and I both need a fuzzy face to kiss. We miss them horribly. I have been studying Ragdolls and find that their personalities very closely match that of my Zach (my cat). I would be very interested in finding one of either sex to rescue. I live in Billings, Montana. If you need references of how I have cared for my pets, you can contact Moore Lane Veterinary Clinic as that is where they received their care.
