Ragdoll Kittens are so fluffy and cute it’s easy to understand why they have become so popular, especially if they can be adopted for free. Unfortunately, there are very few places around that will specifically shelter Main Coon cats but most places may have mixed or free primary coon cats available among many other breeds you may look at.
As is sometimes regular when seeking to adopt a Ragdoll Kitten for free some local shelters and adoption centres ask that you pay a small fee to help them keep running, but this is a low price to pay when you finally find a real Ragdoll with a great personality and traits.
Most the free Ragdoll cats you will find in shelters have been sadly abandoned by a previous owner, so this will make it more difficult to tell if you are dealing with a purebred Ragdoll kitten or not so be sure to do the research and In the end go with the aim of re-homing one of the cats to a loving family as this is most important.
Please find below a few places where to find free Ragdoll Kittens:
Check Online for free Ragdolls
Probably the easiest most hassle-free way to find free Ragdoll Kittens is to check online to see websites or owners listing them for adoption in your area. This way, you get first to have a look or request an image of the kitten or cat and do your research talking to the owner without having to commit to a viewing.
Check with local shelters.
Once you’ve done some research on what to look for in your Ragdoll Kitten, it’s a good sign you are ready to take a look at the cats at your local shelter. Shelter workers are not always experts on the cats or their breeds, so it’s essential to know how to spot a Ragdoll Kitten or Cat.
Some people say finding a purebred Ragdoll kitten for free in a shelter can be ‘rare’, but you would be surprised how many can be housed they’re waiting to be given a loving home.
Check With Breeders and Organizations Related To The Ragdoll Breed
There may in some cases be an opportunity to get free Ragdoll cats directly from a breeder for free generally due to them being overpopulated or having a large litter of kittens that require re-homing.
It’s a good idea to keep checking in with local breeders and leave your contact details with them so they may contact you if such an opportunity arises.
Keep Your Options Open
Due to where you are living, it may sometimes be tough to find free Ragdoll kittens, but this does not mean you have to give up entirely. There is an increasing likelihood that you would be able to find an older Ragdoll cat to adopt, which can give you just as much love and affection as a kitten.
The goal should always be to make the Cat you re-home happy and put them in a loving environment. Always keep in mind that ‘free’ may not always be the case when it comes to adoption but will be a much lower cost than buying a purebred Ragdoll kitten directly from a certified breeder.
