So you want a Siamese?
If so, the next question is whether Rescue is the right avenue of adoption for you?
Determining this early on is key. Rescue cats are cats that were no longer wanted or able to be cared for. They are wonderful, deserving cats, but they are not without their issues. Our job, which we take very seriously, is to get to know you, to get to know our cats, and to work together to find a great match.
Because many of these cats come with baggage, Rescue is not always for everyone. We're looking for adopters (Rescuers if you will) who have the patience, understanding and compassion to work through issues that may arise. We're here to help you. If you need a cat within a few days, if you aren't interested in dealing with any issues that may arise, if you must have a specific age and look, Rescue may not be the best solution for you.
The Siamese Rescue website provides a group of individually operated non-profit Rescue Organizations the opportunity to engage in a common purpose and to come
together at one Internet presence. Each organization represented
here is a separate non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation with its own Board,
policies and procedures, but working towards a common goal - to
rescue homeless and abandoned Siamese cats and rehome them in carefully
screened, permanent situations.
This nationwide effort to rescue Siamese before they are euthanized at shelters requires an enormous amount of time, energy, and money. You won't find a more dedicated group of individuals willing to put forth everything they have to save this wonderful breed. There just isn't enough, however, to go around. Enough transporters, enough fosters, enough money. Many of these cats require extensive medical work to get them back on their feet, and we are willing to do it, if we can.
Please consider supporting any or all of the Center's efforts - if you can donate - whether it be in supplies, in elbow grease, or in funds, your help is key to our success. All of the Centers would greatly appreciate any support you can provide them.
Select the Organization which is closest to you from the Navigation bar on the right, and you will be taken to their webpages.
While our focus is on our Rescue Programs, we strive to offer a variety
of information and resources related to the Siamese cat. We hope you will
enjoy learning more about the breed by joining the family of 'Meezer' friends
at the Siamese Internet Cat Club, and if you can't adopt at this point in
time, please consider volunteering in one of many ways to help our effort to rescue this most wonderful breed!
Siamese Rescue of Kansas
Siamese Rescue of KS was the first licensed Siamese Rescue organization. It was founded in 1997 and continued until 2004. During this time, they rescued and placed over 834 cats and were active in the placement of many other cats.
"Through a very special cat named Duke, we met Siri, who founded the Siamese Cat Rescue Center in Virginia, and the ball began rolling with the establishment of several other Siamese Rescues across the nation.
While we are very sad to close our doors, we are proud of our accomplishments and the influence we had on cat rescue across the nation."
Thank you to our fosters and volunteers who improved the lives of many cats and beans along the way.
