If You Want To Adopt A Ragdoll Rescue – Visit Our Ragdoll Rescue List On Our Blog. Be sure to scroll through to see all the kitties available!
Unfortunately, as with most pure bred animals, Ragdoll cats need to be rescued! This is no one Rescue Group for Ragdolls in the United States. However, there are several Ragdoll Cat Rescue groups (please see the links to them below), but you can always check with breeders to see if they have any retired breeder Ragdolls that need to find a permanent forever home. If you are a breeder and would like to add your retired breeders on this site, please list them here.
Make sure you check out all the Ragdoll cat rescues, because if there is a cat that you are interested in, but is not in your area, sometimes arrangements can be made to get that feline to you!
Also, please be aware that most shelters list Ragdolls erroneously under Himalayan and/or Siamese, since Ragdolls are still not a very well-known breed of cat.
Another great resource for finding a Ragdoll is to do a search on Petfinder.com or Craigslist.com in your home town or surrounding areas. There are a lot of Ragdolls out there that have been called a Himalayan or Siamese, so be sure to check them all!
Finding a Ragdoll Rescue can be a lot of work, but it will be well worth your effort!
