Adoption Application

If you are interested in adopting a Bengal from East Coast Bengal Rescue, we have a few requests. Before you fill out our Adoption Application, please review our guidelines on Bengal cat care, so that you will be prepared before adopting a rescue Bengal from us:

East Coast Bengal Rescue reserves the right to “match” the right cat with the right families; therefore, we cannot guarantee that your application will be approved for the particular cat that you are applying for. We work very hard to ensure that the cat we’re placing ends up in the most suitable, forever home.

We place our rescue cats as INDOOR ONLY.

IF YOU LIVE IN AN APARTMENT, please note that the Bengal breed is a HIGH ENERGY breed. They need lots of space and room to exercise, explore, and get that energy out. For this reason, many Apartments do not accommodate that need. We may successfully place Bengals in Apartments, but this is usually cats who are 10 or older, and also cats 10 and older tend to dislike other pets. We look at each Bengal cat’s needs, individually, and ensure that their energy level matches their new living environment.

Adoption fees vary and are based on Veterinary expenses and other factors.

Please be sure to fill out every space in the Application or it will not be accepted or processed.
