There is just something special about adopting an animal in need. They seem to be thankful for finally finding a home and give lots of love in return. This is especially true when it comes to felines. But many of you probably have your heart set on a particular breed.
One popular breed is the Scottish Fold cat, which is often a very hard animal to find. So you might be thinking how would I possibly find one of these in an animal shelter? But you might be surprised by what you might find.
A Scottish Fold Rescue is a group of people that specialize in finding homes for this specific breed. They often take in animals of this breed from people who can no longer care for them, from shelters and from kitten mills.
There are many of these groups spread around the country and are also in just about every state. So finding one might be a little difficult but you should be able to find one in reasonable distance from your home. In case you can’t find one, don’t worry because many of these groups will work with you and you can have your new pet shipped to your home. There are several transportation companies that specialize in bringing pets from one place to another. For a small fee you can have your new cat brought right to your door step!
These groups work tirelessly to bring both animal and new owner together. This is a great way to find the breed that you want and give back at the same time. They do a great job at helping people find the perfect pet.
Often times, these groups bring in animals that need a lot of care. As stated above many come from kitten mills and have to have extensive care to get them back into health. This often costs the group a lot of money and supporting them by getting your new pet from them will help make up for that cost.
So if you are looking for a Scottish Fold kitten or a full grown cat, why not get one from one of these groups? Instead of spending lots of money buying one from a breeder, adopt one and at the same time do something wonderful for the world of felines. Just think of how thankful your new pet will be once you bring him or her home.
