Finding Siamese kittens for adoption can be a challenge, but worth it for someone devoted to these sassy, smart cats. There are more kittens in the world than there are homes for them, and a lot of these cats are purebreds. If you have your heart set on one of these intelligent, extroverted pets, you'll be happy to know there are several Siamese cat rescues in the United States and beyond. Begin your search with these 11 breed-devoted rescues, and you might just find the perfect kitty for your home.
Siamese Cat Rescue Center
The Siamese Cat Rescue Center is a network of rescues that saves Siamese cats and kittens from shelters before they're euthanized. To date, they have rescued over 25,000 felines! Volunteers travel to various shelters and take possession of the cats that they find, fostering them until they find a suitable forever home for each cat.
Siamese Cat Rescue Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. They exist on tax-deductible donations. If you're approved via your adoption application, they will see if any of their current foster cats match up with what you're looking for. There are several chapters of this organization across the United States.
- Rocky Mountain Siamese Rescue (Colorado)
- Siamese Cat Rescue Center (Virginia)
- Southern California Siamese Rescue (Southern California)
- Pacific Siamese Rescue (Northern California)
- Midwest Siamese Cat Rescue (Midwest)
Contact the rescue closest to you to see if they provide adoptions to your area. Some chapters will do out-of-state adoptions. In most cases, you will have to cover the cost of transportation or travel to pick the cat up yourself.
Purrs Abound Siamese Rescue of Michigan
Purrs Abound, a 501(c)(3) rescue, fosters Siamese cats and kittens that their volunteers find in shelters throughout Michigan and Northwest Ohio. They also assist with the placement of cats who need re-homing.
Adoptions are granted to those living in Michigan or Ohio, and many times, a transporter will bring the kitten with them to a home visit in your house after your application has been approved to see if it's a good fit.
Austin Siamese Rescue
The Texas-based Austin Siamese Rescue, a 501(c)(3) organization, rescues, re-homes, and rehabilitates Siamese and other Thai-breed cats and kittens in need. A telephone interview is required, and the organization will need you to provide references.
Kansas City Siamese Rescue
If you live in or near the Kansas City metropolitan area, the Kansas City Siamese Rescue may help you find an adoptable Siamese kitty. This 501(c)(3) rescue organization serves the Midwest and finds homes for Siamese and Siamese-mix cats. However, if the need arises, they will rescue other cat breeds and even dogs.
Purebred Cat Rescue
Purebred Cat Rescue specializes in purebred adoptions, but the organization also offers mixed breeds, including Siamese-mix kitties. While they do offer pictures of their cats so you can see them, they don't let you search by breed. You have to note preferences in the adoption application form.
Siamese Rescue of Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico has a high homeless cat population. The Siamese Rescue of Puerto Rico saves these kitties and finds homes for them in the United States in order to help reduce the island's overpopulation. If you find an adoptable Siamese kitty on their webpage and are approved, they’ll fly your sweet new pet to more than 30 U.S. states.
Local Options for Siamese Cat Adoption
Local city animal shelters and humane societies probably get more kittens than you would think. Purebred cats, including Siamese kittens, do pop up there from time to time. This is often the cheapest option when it comes to adoption fees, but these kittens tend to get adopted very quickly.
Beware of advertisements, as they may call themselves an animal "rescue" while they are actually trying to sell their cats. Adopting from 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations makes it more likely that you're supporting a real rescue.
Other Places to Rescue Siamese Cats
Several other sites have postings of cats for adoption from a variety of rescues throughout the country, and they include purebred Siamese and mixes.
- Petfinder allows you to search by location and breed, making it easy to locate a Siamese near you. In addition, you can specify the gender of the animal you want, as well as the age.
- Adopt a Pet also allows you to search by location and breed to find your perfect Siamese match. It boasts that it is the largest North American pet adoption website.
These sites are a compilation of rescues all around the country, and you can search by your ZIP code and breed to find a Siamese cat for adoption in your area.
Adopting a Siamese Kitten
Adopting a Siamese cat or a cat of any breed takes patience, understanding, and, sometimes, lots of work. Your new kitty may need extra time to adjust and get settled while they learn to trust you, but the feeling of saving a kitten's life makes it all worthwhile.
