The Atlanta Abyssinian Rescue




The Atlanta Abyssinian Rescue has been helping rehoming rescued Abys in the Atlanta area since 2009. The cat lovers who work here have been helping in cat shelters since 1984, so they are experts in this field. The people in Atlanta Abyssinian rescue are also Aby breeders, and this rescue work is a way of giving back to Aby owners in the area in need of help.

The Atlanta rescue will do its best to help directly any Abyssinian in need of a new home within a reasonable distance from the Atlanta area. This included vetting, fostering and placement. We have rescued Abys from kill shelters and found them to good, loving homes.

You need to send an application of adoption to the rescue first. If you are approved, you are given permission to visit, as this is a private foster home, not a public shelter. This means that the cats are given good individual care. The safe placement of the cats in new homes is a priority, which is the reason for the application process. This process ensures that the rescued Aby finds the perfect people and a new forever home.

Texas Aby Rescue? Not directly, sorry. NEW
by: Susan Graham - Atlanta Aby Rescue

As far as I know, only National Abyssinian Rescue and various volunteers in the area can help an Abyssinian directly in Texas. I have been able to help from a distance, counseling the owners of the pet so they can either temporarily handle the problem while I help them find a home, or resolve the problem so they can keep the Aby.
