If you've been thinking about getting a Siamese, then Siamese cat adoption may be a good solution for you!
Not only will you end up with a beautiful Siamese cat, you'll also have the satisfaction of knowing that you've helped save a cat's life.
Siamese cat adoption is not for everyone though; there are some things to consider. Rescue cats can make wonderful pets, but they can also have some past issues that may come along with them.
A person interested in rescuing one of these cats needs to be patient and understanding.
If none of these factors matter, then Siamese cat adoption could be your perfect fit.
There are several rescue centers across the United States, and all over the world. I'll list a few of the major ones in the US that you can contact.
All rescues centers give each cat a vet exam before adopting it out.
Vet work includes:
Most rescue centers have a few guidelines in adoption. The most common are:
Not allowing the cats to go outside
Cats can be returned to the rescue center if you find that they aren’t a good match
Not only do these Siamese cat rescue centers give a complete medical exam to each cat, they also do research and screening for potential candidates who are interested in Siamese cat adoption. This could be through phone calls, house visits, or interviewing by yourself and any members of your home. This is all done to ensure that you and your Siamese cat are a good match for each other.
This organization works with rescue centers across America to help to help find good, loving homes for Siamese cats.
You can adopt a cat directly through the SCRS if you live in the eastern part of the US, from Florida to Maine, and as far inland as Indiana and Missouri.
The fee for adopting is $125, which includes vet work. Senior citizens have a discount, which makes it $100. Transportation over state lines will require a Health Certificate, which costs $20, and also requires the use of a pet carrier.
The application process is online. You can learn more about the Siamese Cat Rescue Center.
