NABB's Burmese Breed Rescue program was implemented in July 2000 to demonstrate our dedication to ensuring that unwanted, displaced or abandoned Burmese find safe, loving and permanent homes. Since its inception, we have successfully re-homed more than 1000 Burmese and the need continues to grow every year.
Most of our Burmese in need of rescue or rehoming are over the age of five and more often over the age of ten. We regularly have Burmese aged 10 to 15 that are in need of new homes in various areas of the country. Our adoption fee varies from zero to $200 depending on the situation of the particular rescue.
We do not have Burmese kittens for adoption and only occasionally we have young adults available. If you are interested in a Burmese kitten, you will need to purchase one from a breeder. You can find a list of breeders in your local area in our Breeder Directory.
Primarily, we use a referral process to help find permanent homes for Burmese that have been abandoned or displaced or for whom current owners can no longer provide a home. So, for example, let's say that there are two Burmese that need rehoming in Atlanta, GA. If you can provide a home, you contact the owner of the cat from the information provided by Burmese Rescue and you negotiate with the holder as to transportation arrangements. We work by connecting people together.
If you are interested in adopting a rescued Burmese, please join the Yahoo! group: "Burmese_rescue_list".
