If you're thinking about adopting a cat, why not contact a specialist Siamese cat rescue center?
The lists below will help you find the nearest one to you.
These centers are generally run by individuals or small groups of people who are passionate about the breed and who, in many cases, have dedicated their time and their own money to rescuing and caring for pedigree cats.
They may be breeders or ex-breeders who have the cattery facilities to offer cats space in their own homes, or otherwise cats may be fostered with volunteers until permanent homes can be found for them.
... know that taking in an abandoned cat may not be for everyone. It's not always plain sailing. Many cats taken into adoption centers come with 'baggage' and behavioral problems.
They may have been harmed or mistreated in the past and may not be too trusting of humans, and it may take time (in some cases, a lot of time) and patience before they settle in and become loving family pets again.
Before contacting one of the centers below, do please take a look at my Siamese Cat Adoption page, which gives you a full list of things to think about.
And if you'd like to know what adopting a cat can be like, why not take a look at Siamese Cat Adoption Stories?
I've put together a list of all the rescue centers I can find around the world. You'll find this list below. I'm not associated with any of these groups but if you have problems contacting any of the centers listed, please let me know
so that the details can be updated.
... and you can't adopt it yourself and don't know what to do with it,
rather than handing it in to a general animal pound, why not try
contacting your nearest center for advice on what to do next?
If you do, and it isn't listed here and you'd like to be included, please contact me by using the form on my 'Contact Us' page.

Each of the centers is an individual charity offering advice, information and re-homing. They are always, always grateful for donations and practical support.
Siri Zwemke, who started the Siamese Cat Rescue Center in Virginia from which all the others sprang, has written an honest, funny and sometimes heartbreaking book, Rescue Meez, about her experiences. Available on Amazon, all purchases (and reviews) would be a great help to the rescue effort.
