Please help a purebred Abyssinian in need of a new home!

Is it a purebred Abyssinian?


Already have a houseful of kitties or allergies that prevent you from adopting?
You can still be kitty mom or dad by virtually adopting. The adopters of your kitty will be told that the kitty they picked out was lucky enough to have your love and support. Virtual adoption is a great way to make a real difference in the life of your purr baby! Virtual adoption fees are used to help YOUR baby get tested, spay/neutered, micro-chipped and vaccinated. Click on the links below to help the Aby you would love to have as yours, if only you could.
Thank you!

Here's some information on Abyssinians and what to expect.
They are active, playful, affectionate cats who enjoy interaction with their humans and usually get along well with other animals such as dogs if they are raised with them, or if they are friendly and nice too.

Didn't find the Aby you were looking for?
Perhaps one of the retired Abys would be a good alternative for you

15 year old ruddy spayed female Abyssinian named Sasha. "Sasha is a very special girl. You will need to have love and patience to take Sasha home. Silly Sasha does not like change.

We go through Petfinder and Adopt-A-Pet regularly looking through hundreds of listings every week that are listed as "Abyssinian" for purebred Abyssinians who are homeless in shelters, sometimes close to being euthanized. We also are on the National Abyssinian Rescue email list and put available Abys from it on this page. People contact us directly to ask for help in placing an Aby, too. We NEVER get a listing from an individual website trying to place a cat or kitten without permission!

If you know of an Abyssinian who is in a shelter or in need of a new home, please contact us with the information and a photo. We will do our best to make sure the Aby gets a forever home as soon as possible by contacting rescue organizations in the area and listing the Aby on this page. If there is a correction or update, please contact us with that information also. Thank you for caring.
