Full Answer

First, check your local shelters. Ragdolls are sometimes picked up as strays or surrendered by their owners for any of a number of reasons. Most shelters will only hold animals for a short time before euthanizing them, so these are the animals most in need of rescue. Checking back frequently is a good idea, as the turnover is typically very high.

You may also choose to utilize a registry such as Rescue Me or Adopt a Pet that can help you to locate an adoptable Ragdoll near you.

Rescue Me has a map that will show you where available Ragdolls are located by state or country. You can also sign up to receive an e-mail notification whenever a Ragdoll becomes available, or you can opt for daily or weekly notifications instead. They also list other resources, such as local rescue organizations, that might have adoptable Ragdolls.

Adopt a Pet has a search engine that enables you to find rescue Ragdolls within a chosen distance of your home. It allows you to specify sex, color and hair length if you wish to. They also have a tool that will email you when a cat matching your criteria becomes available.
