Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue helps find homes for purebred felines.

In existence for close to 20 years, Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue places purebred cats—think Persian, Ragdoll, Maine Coon—with adopters seeking a specific breed. The website carries bios on cats available for adoption, and volunteers can add further valuable insight. Why should someone go through a rescue versus a breeder for a purebred? “They are saving a life,” says Laurel Fagan, who serves on the board of directors. Purebreds Plus (“plus” because they do sometimes rescue non-purebreds) is based in Northern California but also has fosters in Southern California, Oregon and Reno. The organization adopted out close to 370 cats in 2020. (707) 301-7377;
