Rescue & Rehome

If you are interested in adopting a cat from us please note that we only accept applications for individual cats. Please see our TBRCC Rescue and Rehome Facebook page to see if you and your home would be suitable for any of our currently available cats.

The British Ragdoll Cat Club provides a Rehoming Service with a network of willing volunteers situated all over the country ready to help. Over the years, we have been asked to help rehome Ragdolls when people's circumstances have changed and they are sadly no longer able to keep their cats and we have done our best to help.

We do not home cats on a first-come-first-serve basis. Each one is assessed individually for its character and temperament and its previous lifestyle is taken into consideration. When we are certain that we have found the right home, arrangements will be made for the transfer.

We like to arrange a visit to prospective new homes by an experienced member of TBRCC before placing a cat. This ensures that the home suits the needs of the cat(s) being considered and also provides the opportunity for adoptees to voice any queries that they may have regarding the general care and upkeep of the Ragdoll breed.

Something to take into consideration is that, like most pedigree cats, Ragdolls are indoor cats and you will require to provide them with a litter tray. It is not recommended to allow them complete freedom as their easy-going nature could make them less aware of danger. No one is ever prepared for the heartbreak of a much loved pet being run over by a car or taken away by a stranger. However, if you have a safely enclosed garden your pet will enjoy playing in the fresh air, especially if you are with him or her.

Invitations to adopt a Ragdoll cat from us will only be open as a cat in our care becomes ready for its new home. Please only apply if you feel you meet all the criteria listed. You may see that many cats are advertised as not being available to homes with children and/or other pets. This is because we do get large numbers of cats in rehome that have had to be removed from these situations as they cannot cope or they are older cats and never lived with other pets or children. For the benefit of the cats (their welfare is paramount) we will never place them in a home where we think the conditions are not suitable for that cat.  We only accept applications to take on a rehome cat when we have a cat available. We do not keep a waiting list. 

As this service is operated on a UK-wide basis by just three main volunteers and a small network of support helpers, we do ask that you be patient with us. If you wish to rehome your Ragdoll then please email in the first instance where you will be sent a form to complete.  Unfortunately, we do not always have spaces for cats to come into our care all the time.
