Looking to adopt a CH kitty? Here are a few great places to start your search:
One of the premier online adoption resources is Petfinder.com, where thousands of shelters around the country post profiles of hundreds of thousands of adoptable pets. If you’re looking to adopt a cat with special needs, such as cerebellar hypoplasia, here’s one way to narrow your search:
Visit Petfinder.com’s homepage and choose the type of pet you’re interested in along with your zip code:
Once you press Search, you’ll be taken to a page with all of the adoptable pets in your area. This is the page where you can narrow your search. As you look down the left rail, you’ll see your options:
- Age: Baby, Young, Adult, Senior
- Gender: Male, Female
- Size: Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large
- Other Considerations: Declawed, Housetrained, Special Needs
- My Household Has: Cats, Dogs, Young Children
- Show Me Pets Named
After you click each refined characteristic, the page will automatically reload with those specific pets. It’s important to keep in mind that clicking “Special Needs” will return results with any animal in your area with special needs. That could include kitties with FIV, who are blind, have special household needs and more. However, this refined search does make finding a CH kitty a bit easier!
Adoptable CH Cats List
If that seems like a bit too much work, check out the Adoptable CH Cats List on this site. It’s an aggregated list that I try to update monthly. What’s great about this list is that you can search by availability, gender, location and more. I hope to soon add age category, too.
If you’d like to have a CH cat listed on the Adoptables page, please read this.
Cerebellar Hypoplasia Cats and Kittens Facebook Group
The Cerebellar Hypoplasia Cats and Kittens Group is another great place to hear about CH cats that are up for adoption, as the moderators post them as soon as they hear about them. This is also a great place to find out about kitties that are in immediate need of adoption or foster. If you join this group, you can usually find a more up-to-date list of adoptable CH cats here as well.
