Assistance with the rescue, care, and loving forever re-homing of sphynx in need.
We are a consortium of dedicated sphynx owners and lovers, located all over the United States. We volunteer our time, resources and finances to help with the transport, fostering, treatment, care, and rehoming of sphynx in need. We also happily share information of and with other rescue organizations and individuals who are like minded in putting the welfare of sphynx first.
Recently, too many sphynx have been unnecessarily destroyed at 'shelters'. SOAR was conceived with the idea of rescue and foster in mind, a source of centralized information, and a bridge to linking sphynx in need to their final, forever homes. This page is currently a database for information and links to sphynx needing homes and care, either through other rescues or individuals that may or may not be directly affiliated with SOAR. While SOAR is itself still in its infancy as a non-profit organization, we are committed to helping those who are endeavoring to protect, foster, and care for sphynx in need. SOAR does not necessarily endorse a particular breeder, individual, rescue organization, etc... however, we do strongly advocate ethical breeding practices, and encourage responsible pet ownership. Please remember friends, a 'rescue' sphynx is not an avenue for a 'cheap' specialty cat; aside from rehoming situations for retired breeding cats, often these kitties have been in poor health or have been neglected, and will likely have special needs for the rest of their lives. It will take a determined, patient, and extremely caring individual who is willing to provide a nurturing, loving, forever home for these precious creatures. Sphynx ownership, under even the best of circumstances, is a huge responsibilty to undertake, and we encourage all to educate themselves about the breed, the risks of HCM and importance of annual scanning, in addition to proper general maintenance, grooming & care. A sphynx will affect your life in a unique way and those of us who are blessed to care for these incredible cats are forever touched. We welcome civil discussion & questions, and will do our utmost to work together as a community for the betterment of the breed.
