Ragdoll Cat 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:

Ragdoll Breeders often have retired breeders that they are trying to home, so that is also an option. If you are a Ragdoll breeder and would like to advertise your Ragdoll breeders, you may do so for free, if you will adopt them out for free. Please 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.

Finding your Ragdoll cat rescue might not be an easy task, but it certainly will be a rewarding one. Be sure to check out Ragdoll cat names for your new kitty.

If you currently have a resident kitty who you are thinking about finding a friend for, be sure to read How to Introduce Cats.

    Hi, I’m Jennifer. I have a wonderful Rag named Lillie, she’s 3. I have recently rescued a really wonderful rag named Anabel; she is 16 years old and has been a true princess with one previous owner who is now living in assisted care. Anabel is accustomed to being an only-child. Lillie, I think, would like to be friends, but Anabel is too frightened. They share my bedroom although they can use the whole house. Before we got Anabel, she was left alone for an extended time, which is not good for a rag. Anabel was about 10 pounds overweight and has now lost 3. She suffers from arthritis and walking is somewhat painful. People would drop by and feed Anabel when she was left alone. My vet says she’s fairly healthy after a series of tests. Her teeth need cleaning. I have tried a series of ways to introduce the two cats, but Anabel would rather hide in the closet. Both cats are aware of each other, but tend to prefer to ignore each other. They eat their own food, never each other’s. Is this the best I’m going to get? At Anabel’s age, is she so set in her ways that the two won’t likely become friends? Sorry this is so long. Thank you for listening.

      What have you tried as far as introducing them? Anabel should have been put in a “Safe room” for at least two weeks before any introductions were made.

    • Anonymous says:

      I did have her by herself in a safe room for about 3 weeks, then I moved her next door to Lillie; Lillie sniffed under the door, but Anabel wasn’t interested in smelling her, she just wanted to lie down. Then I put them in the same room, Anabel stayed in the closet and Lillie avoided the closet . They know of each other and they eat their own food, but Anabel isn’t interested. Is she just too old to try and change?

    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.

    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,

    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.

    • Jenny says:


      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.

    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.

      • Diane Shafer says:

        Yes, we have introduced them. We live in Fenton, Missouri. Two cats have claws and fight her, and she takes her aggression out on our male, who is declawed. We’ve worked with her for quite some time now, and I feel that she would be better in a home with no other pets.

          • Destiny Macaraeg says:

            Do you still have her? How old is she? Does she do well with children? I have a 15 year old daughter, and two boys 4 & 7. My daughter and I are allergic to cats, but have been okay around these guys, I think…I’ll have to check with my daughter. Are they mousers???
