Our Mission at East Coast Bengal Rescue is to rescue Bengal cats and other hybrid cats. Hybrid cats also include Savannah cats, Toyger cats, and Chausie cats. We are located in Virginia and typically serve the East Coast, from Maine to Florida. 

We are members of a very large community of Bengal Cat enthusiasts. This includes other Rescue Organizations, Adopters, Fosters, Behavioral Experts, Medical Experts, and yes – even Breeders.

It’s also a goal of East Coast Bengal Rescue to build a large social media presence so that we can find cats in need, and find them wonderful forever homes. This is how we find cats in need of rescue and identify potential adopters. It is also a great way for us to educate Bengal cat owners about their  behavioral and medical challenges. You can follow us on  Facebook and  Instagram.

With the support of these individuals, we have are developing a nationwide foster network. We work with individuals who rescue, transport, foster, and care for these cats who are in a transitionary state. At times, we help current Bengal owners place their cats in new homes. In other cases, we rescue cats from Shelters and place them into Foster care while we search for their forever home. It takes so many resources and individuals to saves the lives of these cats. We couldn’t do this without each individual’s participation and support.

We ensure that all of the cats in our program are seen by a Veterinarian and receive Medical assessment and treatment. In the case of Owner Surrender we ask the Owner to cover veterinary expenses before taking him / her into our program. When we rescue cats from Shelters, we ensure that the cat receives whatever care is deemed necessary by the Veterinarian.

In the end, we are as firmly dedicated to the cats in our program, as we are to our very own feline family members.
