Ragdoll Rescues

bulletPlease note:While we welcome the listings of all Ragdolls needing rescuing, Ragdoll International cannot certify that they are pedigreed Ragdolls and cannot be responsible for anything that may arise between parties involved in the listing or adopting of these rescues. All agreements are between the individual private parties and not by Ragdoll International. Either parties may refuse or accept any offer or request.

Unfortunately every year some Ragdolls end up in shelters and foster homes and need to be placed in loving forever homes. This page is intended to try and help place these Ragdolls. Ragdolls that are rescued and in need of placement along with those looking to adopt a rescued Ragdoll may list on this page.


bulletWhile we support and are trying to help all Ragdolls in need of rescuing, listing of Ragdoll Rescues on this page may only be listed by an RI member. Anyone is welcome to make arrangements to adopt one of these Ragdolls listed on this page by contacting the person on the listing. If you are not a member of RI and have a Ragdoll Rescue to list, think about joining RI or contacting a member to list the Ragdoll rescue for you.

If you would like to list your rescued ragdoll here or are willing to adopt a rescued ragdoll, please send your information to webmaster@ragdollinternational.org or fill out our brief Ragdoll Rescue Application.

This page is only intended for rescues and not retired breeders or available ragdolls. See other pages on website for those listings and adoptions.

Here is a brief description of the problems we have been having with Kuma since the arrival of my daughter who is now 13 months old :(

"Kuma is 4 years old. He has visited a vet, they took stool samples and we have tried to change his food to see if it was a reaction to the food. We tried grain free cat food, soft cat food, and organic cat food. They could not find anything wrong with him. 

He has behavioral problems and litter box issues- charging me, jumping on me, meowing late into the night, no longer lets me brush him--anything to get our attention. He has a lot of fur matting because he struggles when I attempt to brush him. I had a groomer come to our house to shave off his mats. He vomits a few times a week and poops out side his litter box. We have never had an issue with urine until last night when he peed in my daughter's play tent and pooped inside of her play tunnel. 

The only thing I can think of is that he is no longer getting love and affection from us and is extremely stressed out about it. Im sure you know that ragdolls love to be cuddled and pet. We used to have neighbors with a 5 year old and 6 year old who I babysat and the kids would always play with him- pick him up, carry him around and he did great with them. However with my daughter he charges after her and displays aggressive cat signals- not fearful behavior but more of a "bullying" stance. I have tried to discipline him, I have tried to ignore it, I have tried to let him go outside when it gets bad (he loves to sit outside on our balcony) We made an area near the window where the baby cant bother him but it has only escalated."
