The first step in adopting a Siamese cat is to select a rescue organization to work with. Each rescue organization has slightly different rules and policies about the adoption process. In general, after selecting a rescue group, the second step is to submit an adoption application.
As a typical example, as of 2015, Southern California Siamese Rescue requires prospective adopters to submit an adoption application, veterinarian references and a non-refundable fee. If the application is accepted, the next step involves an interview by staff from the rescue group. Next, the adopter works with the rescue to identify a suitable cat for adoption. The final step is to pay an adoption fee to the rescue group.
