Unfortunately, most shelters are totally overloaded with healthy kittens and cats needing homes, and other than senior animals, I've never heard of one who specializes in special needs animals. Very few will accept special needs animals, as sad as that sounds,because they take much time and effort. As well as being over-crowded, shelters are also understaffed. Your best bet would be to appeal to a private rescue who uses fosters homes for their animals instead of a physical shelter building. These can be found listed with animal shelters in your phone book or online, or at www.petfinder.com. You can also try calling veterinary hospitals in your area as they often know of rescue organizations. Good luck.

I completely agree with Izzie's answer. Your best bet would be to find a local cat rescue organization. Veterinarians in your area might be able to point you in the right direction.

I found my cerebellum hypoplasia kitten from our vet. Have been looking on petfinders to find another cat with same condition. Mine is a joy. Have asked our vet to recomend if any more come into the office needing a home. Feel free to contact me if you are still in need of a home for your cats. We live in Michigan, if location is an issue, i would suggest that you contact your vet to help with the adoption
Please try going to the chkittyclub ( www.chkittyclub.com )and joining the yahoo support group, i KNOW lots of CH kittens and cats have found homes thru it!!
good luck to you and your kitties : )
