How do i surrender my cat to be adopted responsibly without taking to a shelter?

i have this cat who is fully deaf & i want to find a good home for her where she is the only cat... she is very good with people but is very uncomfortable around other cats & other animals becaus of her deafness... see i dont want her stuck in a shelter for the rest of her life & i dont want her to be euthanized either since she's still young... so where can i take her here in baltimore, maryland, that can take in a disabled cat to stay at & get her adopted to a good home & family???? please, PLEASE HELP ME THANKS!!!!

Try cat rescue associations. Here are a couple of links I found in your area (I can only list three links, but just do a search for "cat rescue baltimore maryland"):

You could put an ad in the paper describing the situation. Maybe an animal lover will come forward. Good luck.

Try Lucky Cat Rescue. You could also contact Charm City Animal Rescue. They don't accept surrenders, but they could have information or assistance for you. You could also ask your local shelter or Humane Society about fosters or advice on other organizations.

If you don't mind me asking, why are you giving up your cat? There are organizations that can give financial and emotional support or foster your cat if you're having a rough time. Personally when I've fostered and looked for homes for a cat or kitten, the best way I've found to find a good home is to take a picture and show the picture off to friends and family. Even coworkers. I've never adopted a cat or kitten to a stranger.

because she attacks the other 2 cats that i already have & she's terrified to be around the other cats... i have tried everything to get her closer to the other cats, but she is too afraid of them cuase of her hearing issue so therefore she goes after them & they all hiss & growl at each other all the time... & apparently she was like that at her previous home which is why she can't be with other cats or other animals as well...

Lucky Cat is a foster program... they don't have a physical building. luckycatrescue.com

The Humane Society is at bmorehumane.org it's a no-kill shelter with a foster program as well.

Here's a support program, the APA SPCA:
