Our Mission

Our mission is to use our specialized knowledge of cat breeds to provide an appropriate foster alternative for homeless purebred cats and kittens whose special requirements are difficult to meet in a shelter environment, in addition to helping as many special needs domestic cats as our resources allow.

Our goal is to provide the best match between cats and their adoptive families and to place as many purebred and special needs cats as possible into loving homes.

About Us

Specialty Purebred Cat Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit organization founded in 1999.  We specialize in finding quality homes for abandoned/surrendered purebred cats. We are the largest rescue organization of its kind in the Midwest and we are well known and respected throughout the animal shelter community.

Our group is composed of wonderful foster volunteers who generously open their homes and hearts to abandoned and abused purebred cats. Our volunteers work hard to find homes for these felines. We are capable of fostering over 100 cats at one time, spread among the group. However, we always have a considerable waiting list of cats that need to come into our limited foster space. Cats are kept in homes in their own rooms and are given the best of care.

Foster homes are located in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, eastern Iowa, and southern Michigan. Cats are seen by appointment only after an adoption application has been submitted and approved.
