Breed Rescue & Education
PO Box 838
Cary, IL 60013
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."
PUREBRED RESCUE (CPR) is a 501(c)3 no-profit organization,which
was founded in 1994. Mission Statement:
We are a permanent committee of cat fanciers, affiliated with the "Responsible Cat Fanciers of the Northwest", who seek to
improve the life conditions of pedigreed cats of
all breeds recognized by the various registries. We plan to do this through education, identification, rescue, and
placement. Our goal is to reduce the abandonment and
surrender to shelters of pedigreed cats.
