If you are interested in a rescued Aby, there might be an Abyssinian cat rescue near you.
As sad as it is, not all Abyssinian cats find a home for life. Looking at these amazing, beautiful cats this is surprising - who would like to give them up?
Still, they may end up in a rescue center for many reasons - their owner has become allergic, perhaps even died. They may even have run away - cats tend to like to have an occasional adventure, if they manage to slip out. Most of the time they find their way back, but if they are scared and don't know the surroundings, they may get lost.
The saddest thing is that there are abandoned and abused Abys too. But just imagine if you could give one a loving home... That's a thought to consider... Abys usually adapt well to new households - they may need a short while to get used to their new Purrsons, but once they have done that, they can be the best pets. I know - our current Abys came to us at almost one year old, and after a few months they were showing their love with full force. We are met with head-butts at the door, purring cats sleep by our side in our bed, and we get the cat "love-looks" all the time (you know: the cat looks at you and blinks its eyes slowly, half closing them).
So if you feel you might give a home to a rescued Abyssinian cat, I hope the list here will increase and give you a chance to find such a rescue near your home.
I shall be grouping the shelters according to location.
Please take into consideration that most of these shelters work locally and are not in position to be able to work nation- or worldwide, unless they mention it.
If you represent an Aby Rescue and wish to have your information added to the list, you can do so at the end of the page
