Who is the ACRP?
A volunteer group of people who are familiar with and love this very rare breed of cat and are dedicated to the rescue and placement of any abandoned or surrendered American Curls.
What is the purpose of the ACRP?
To assist in educating shelters, rescue groups and veterinarians about how to identify an American Curl; and to aid in the rescue and placement in permanent, indoor homes of any abandoned
or surrendered American Curls found on the street, at shelters, rescue groups, or veterinarian offices.
The ACRP was founded in 1996. Over the years we have had an increasing number of Curl rescues that ACRP was
actively involved with (several situations have involved mulitple Curls being rescued). We have dedicated representatives but have a continued need for volunteers, foster homes and
How does the ACRP accomplish its goals?
: We are available to answer your questions about this breed and apparent American Curls if you do not find the answer in our
, and how to identify this breed versus a cat that has ear damage or is actually another breed such as the Scottish Fold.
: an ACRP adoption form is used to help ensure the best possible match between a rescued Curl and a prospective owner. A contract, vet references, and an adoption fee are required to adopt an ACRP American Curl.
Any American Curl rescued by ACRP will be tested for
FIV/FELV, spayed and neutered if whole, and brought current on vaccinations (FVRCP and Rabies). Foster and receiving homes that are utilized to house rescue Curls, depending on funds
available, may be doing so at their expense until such time as the cat is placed. The foster/receiving home through careful observation while caring for the Curl will make every attempt to
ascertain a rescue Curl’s needs to better match it with a new owner.
: We accept donations via the Amazon Honor System, and we have a Cafe Press powered store
