Adoptable EMRO Cats - Updated February 8, 2017

We are happy you came here to look at our cats in need of a good home, and we hope you will find your new companion here. If you come here more often, please don't forget to refresh your screen periodically by pressing the 'F5' button to view the updated cat biographies.

If you are particularly interested in any new cat, please make an inquiry and put in an application for that cat. You find the application as well as other information about the adoption process on the Adoption Information page. There is no obligation to adopt until it is confirmed, and you have decide which cat is the one for you, and you will be considered next for this cat.

Many cats you see here are also available for sponsorship while awaiting adoption, and each cat may be sponsored by more than one person. EMRO also takes care of cats who are old, feral or have health issues preventing their adoption. These cats need Sponsors the most! You can find these cats HERE.

OFF-SITE - We have additional Native Maus, Mau-mixes, and non-Mau cats available for both adoption and sponsorship who are being fostered by volunteers or by rescuers in Egypt. You can find these sweet-tempered cats looking for homes of their own HERE. Please Note: EMRO is currently closed to in-takes until further notice and until the number of shelter cats go down.

We are always urgently looking for a Pet Escorts who are willing to accompany cats on their way to their new homes outside Egypt. Escorts are given a stipend of USD $50 (USA/Canada) or EURO €30. See Escort a Mau.

Unable to adopt? If you live in the Cairo area, EMRO is urgently looking for foster homes for some of our cats and kittens who would do better in a temporary, nurturing home environment. If you are interested in becoming a Foster Parent, click HERE.

Cats, kittens, and "Special Needs. Special needs" felines designated with the below cat icon indicate that they have Sponsors who have graciously volunteered to pay their travel costs out of Egypt. Potential Adopters need pay only the basic adoption balance plus the Pet Escort fee (if applicable) to get their adopted felines home.

EMRO's mandate is to rescue and rehome Native Maus and long-haired Native Maus, and all intakes are at the sole discretion of the founder, who may can be contacted at info@emaurescue.org. Please note that EMRO, although a non-profit organization, is NOT government funded and relies solely on the donations and good will of those using its services. We are a small shelter and are currently closed to intakes. Pet quality Maus remain available through EMRO to anyone interested (whether local or international) in helping save a Mau who satisfies our basic screening application and who are able to pay for its expenses in order to get to their new home (we operate on a cost-recovery basis). 

We're Home! No more cold, hunger, and no more being alone!
