We facilitate the rescue, and rehoming of abandoned, lost or abused Abys in almost any type of situation. NAR's network extends from coast to coast.

If you have a distressed Aby, have found one, or know about one, please contact us and we will do what we can to help.


Somali/Abyssinian Breed Rescue & Education

PO Box 838
Cary, IL 60013 


S.A.B.R.E. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit breed rescue and education organization that was founded in 1994. Our goal is to provide a haven for unwanted purebred Abyssinian and Somali cats and place them in responsible homes, as well as educate people about these wonderful cats and their needs. We place spayed and neutered cats either by taking custody and fostering them, or by assisting owners place their cats in new homes directly through our "match up" program. All cats adopted through S.A.B.R.E. are guaranteed FeLV/FIV negative, current on their vaccines, and spayed or neutered (with no exceptions!). We screen potential adopters because our goal is to adopt out each animal once, so we want to make sure we place the cat in the right home on the first try. Although we have a waiting list, a cat is not placed on a "first come, first served" basis, but rather is placed in the environment that is best suited for its particular situation.If you want a kitten, S.A.B.R.E. is not the place to look. Although we have had rare occasions where we find kittens in need of rescue, this is not the norm. Most of the cats that come through S.A.B.R.E.'s care are older than two, often older than five. Abyssinians and Somalis are beautiful animals, with friendly, outgoing dispositions. They are very athletic and active cats which thrive on interaction, affection, and play. Although beautiful, an Abyssinian or a Somali is not the ideal cat for everyone. They have a lot of energy and demand a lot of attention. People who purchase one on impulse from a pet store are often unhappy to find that instead of a mellow, independent, albeit beautiful cat or kitten, they find themselves with a cat that follows them about the house, gets underfoot, and may cause destruction if ignored. They are much like dogs in this manner. They also retain their kitten-like vitality for many years, often long after their owners expect these cats to "mellow out."

Or you can submit a cat picture and have it shown next to the information about the cat and your rescue until the cat is placed, then send another picture in and update your listing as often as every few days!  All reputable rescues and rescuers can list for FREE.
