SPECIALTY PUREBRED CAT RESCUE is a foster home-based rescue specializing in quality care for homeless purebred cats in the midwest. It has been around for almost 10 years and prides itself on dealing with the complex needs of neglected felines. Most of the cats that come into the rescue are Persians, Himalayans and Exotic Shorthairs, with various rare breeds (such as Bengals, Abyssinians, Rex, Sphynx, etc.) becoming available throughout the year. Only a few cats at a time are accepted for maximum care and there is always a waiting list for cats to come in. All breeds are considered. No mixes except for Rex or Sphynx. See the web site for other details.
ADOPTING A FRIEND
If you are looking for a particular type of cat or just have questions, please visit the rescue's website (see below) for more information on cats available. There is an adoption application form on the website, which you can send in via e-mail. All cats available for adoption have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, tested for feline leukemia, dewormed, temperament tested, de-flead (if needed) and have their coats in reasonable condition. Most older cats have had their teeth and ears cleaned. Adoption fees are $200-$300 for kittens, $150 for cats 1-7 years, and $80.00 for cats 8 years and older and special needs. For Persians and Himalayans it is of great concern that they go to homes that understand their considerable maintenance needs.
