|I would make sure you do have the landlords permission first, and depending on what the lease says, get it in writing, and explain to the landlord, you will be helping your son with this, and take responsibility if needed.
Another place you can try is Petsmart. There is a description of each cat on the card, and if they are good with kids, dogs, other pets, etc, so you have a genl idea of the cats personality, per say. Just as with the shelter kitties, these cats have been s/n and their shots. Most of these cats have foster parents, who would have very good knowledge, if that cat would match with your son and what he is looking for in a cat.
I would also already have a vet lined up, if you don't already, explain to the vet about your son and what your looking for as far as help. When he chooses that special kitty, take that kitty and your son in, so he can meet the vet, and be
comfortable with him/her, and ask the vet to explain to your son, about care, health issues, what to look for if the cat should need a vet, and vaccines.
Bless you for helping your son, and giving a cat a good home.
