TempleDolls Ragdolls places one kitten with a child/adolescent or senior with a therapeutic need each year. The kittens are given at no cost to the family, and the costs of raising the kitten are funded by crowd funding donation. Stay tuned for updates on this page as I build it, adding info and testimonials from our past recipients. We have done 6 therapy placements to date!!
Now accepting nominations for the 2018 placement!
The deadline for nominations is August 15th, 2018.
Do you know a young child or adolescent in need of a ragdoll companion? This is a therapeutic placement, so we are looking for a kiddo with a serious physical or emotional need. The family must have the financial ability to provide for the needs of the kitten.
