About Our Rescue Group:We are a rescue specializing in rescuing persians, himalayans, exotic shorthairs, and ragdolls. Most of our rescued cats are pulled from shelters. Some are given up by their owners due to family situations, financial situations, or a behavioral problem the cat is having. All cats are treated for any existing medical condition(s); they are spayed/neutered, FIV/FELV tested, and given all necessary immunizations before adoption; and any behavioral problem(s) the cat may have is addressed and resolved. All of our foster kitties are housed in actual homes with foster parents - so they get used to being in a home environment.
Come Meet our Pets:We are a foster home based organization. Unfortunately, we do not have a shelter location. Anyone interested in meeting a kitty must first submit an application and be approved to adopt. Than we will set up an appointment for the adopter to go to the foster home where the kitty is located.
Our Adoption Process:We try and match up cats with the best possible living environment for everyone involved. Some cats need to be in homes with no children, no dogs, no other cats - and some cats LOVE children, dogs, and/or other cats! We want to make sure that everyone in the family is happy!
Adoption approval requires that an application be completed. Two personal references and a vet reference are required (three personal references if you don't have a vet) - these will be checked! We also require that a contract be signed - this states that if you are unhappy with your cat that you will return him/her to us, ect. Once you contact us, the application and the contract will be emailed to you. Once we get the application back and the references check out, and the applicant passes an interview, the adopter is approved!!
We do not ship or provide any transportation. We only adopt to residents of the state of Texas and the immediate surrounding states.
Our adoption donation for persian, himalayan, ragdoll and Maine Coon breeds are as follows: adult cat is $150, a kitten is $175 to $275 - depending on age, gender, and breed of kitten. Other breeds may have differing adoption donation amounts, depending on the rarity of the breed (for example exotic shorthair adults are $200 and up, rex breeds are $250 and up). Declawed cats, add $25 to adoption donation. WE ONLY ACCEPT ADOPTION DONATIONS BY CREDIT CARD (VIA PAYPAL) OR CASH - WE DO NOT ACCEPT CHECKS!
If you want us to hold a cat for you, we require a that a non-refundable deposit be made (refundable only if for some reason the cat becomes unadoptable). The deposit is half of the total adoption donation amount. The deposit will apply towards the adoption donation.
Except for the persian, himalayan, and exotic shorthair cats listed on this site, South Texas Persian Rescue cannot guarantee the parentage or breed of cats on this site (unless otherwise noted that the cat is "purebreed").
