I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter...the cast-offs of human society. I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal. And I was angry.
"God," I said, "this is terrible! Why don't you do something?"
God was silent for a moment and then He spoke softly. "I have done something," He replied, "I created you."

BIG BERTHA (DOB ~09/25/2006) is a gorgeous female Lynx Point Ragdoll mix that was rescued from a Florida animal control facility. She had been adopted once and returned, supposedly because she was not very social. BIG BERTHA has some trust issues, but once she learns to trust you, she will be a very good companion, although not necessarily a lap kitty. She would enjoy a home with no other animals where she can be the center of attention -- and she loves her wet food! BIG BERTHA is spayed, up-to-date with vaccines, negative for Feline AIDS/Leukemia, microchipped, dewormed, has received flea and ear mite preventative, and is eligible to receive at least 30 days of prepaid pet health insurance at the time of adoption. BIG BERTHA's adoption fee is $100.00
WHO WE ARE:
Fancy Feline Rescue of the South, a non-profit, no-kill rescue licensed by the Georgia Department of Agriculture, is a small rescue organization with a big heart for the "Fancy Feline" breeds -- particularly Persian, Himalayan, Exotic, Ragdoll, Birman, Maine Coon, Siamese, and other CFA- and TICA-recognized breeds and mixes. Our goal is to provide tender, loving care and safe-haven for those cats that are abandoned, abused, neglected, or no longer wanted by their owners, and to find appropriate, adoptive forever homes for each.
While in our care, Fancy Feline Rescue of the South strives to give one-on-one socialization, providing the individual attention these cats so often need. We work strictly out of no more than ten exclusive foster homes. Those foster home are carefully screened, home visits are made, and each foster family is required to have no more than six foster cats at any time, thereby allowing individual attention and plenty of TLC for each cat.
Fancy Feline Rescue of the South is dedicated to providing individual attention and the best care possible for our cats. We evaluate each cat as to temperament, fully vet before adoption, and place them with the best adoptive home to meet the needs of the specific cat.
Fancy Feline Rescue of the South is an Affiliate Rescue of CFA Purebred Rescue d/b/a Purebred Cat Breed Rescue.
