The native Egyptian Mau is in danger of going extinct in their native homeland. ECRA works with rescue groups in Cairo Egypt.
Persian Cats, Siamese Cats, and Nile Valley Egyptian (Egyptian, Arabian Mau, Persian mix) are also put on the streets of Egypt to survive on their own. ECRA will be helping them find forever loving homes in the USA rather than live a short painful life or be poisoned to death.
>The Egyptian Cat Rescue of America is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit, 501(c)3, no-kill and life-enhancing cat rescue group located in the United States of America.
>"The purpose of the Egyptian Cat Rescue of America (ECRA) is to (physically) rescue, assist non-government organizations (NGO) and advocate (through education) for the endangered native Egyptian Mau, and Nile Valley Egyptian Cats." We support and work with Non Government organizations (NGO) who have rescued and placed thousands of abandoned, abused, stray and shelter cats and kittens in Cairo Egypt and surrounding areas.

Our adoption process begins with an adoption application which will be provided to any interested adult 21 years of age, or older. We will also require a veterinarian’s reference.
We are looking for very special people who truly care about these animals, not as property, but who will be accepted as loving, long-term companions being welcomed into the lives of their adoptive families. Our priority is to ensure the cats will never again need to be rescued, will never be hungry and, most importantly, will never be abused. In order to accomplish this goal, we ask all potential adoptive parents to fully fill out and complete a detailed adoption application.
Adoption from ECRA means that you will be asked to make a tax deductible adoption donation, pay for spaying/neutering, and any other medical care required before the felines are allowed to enter into the USA. Foster homes for cats and kittens newly arrived in the US are also available. We also request that the Adopter agree to follow-up visits and updates which will be made by a representative from ECRA. We wish to do everything possible to make ensure the animals we adopt out place find the best possible homes and Pet Parents once they leave our care.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
