wanting to find a Turkish Angora in or near MO

I am very seriously wanting to adopt a Turkish Angora cat, I have a lil Grey kitty at the house thats about a year old and she highly rambunctious I have thought that maybe getting another cat would give her a companion around the house to play with and that it might be something good for her.
I saw something on TV talking about Turkish Angoras and they seemed like a really cool breed. I am willing to look at whatever venues are available shelters, rescues anything like that. If I have too much trouble I would consider looking at breeders. But I would like to adopt if at all possible.
If anyone can offer any help to me that would be wonderful thank you.

Is there a particular reason that you want a pure bred cat? Or do you just want one because you thought it was cool?

If you really want a purebred cat do a google search and look on the site of the cat registering organization (sorry I have no clue what it is called). To buy a purebred kitten from a breeder you would most likely be looking to pay around $500.00 + (guess from what I've seen)

Go and take a look at local cat rescues and you may just find a Turkish Angora or even find another cat that you just fall in love with.

It will probably be a little while. I am just trying to find out where are the best areas for me to look as of right now.

to be fair I did mention I wanted to look at rescues before breeders, I was just having trouble finding anything on rescues specifically when I did internet searches. I would much rather adopt a cat then get it from a breeder, but I just was not having a lot of luck looking myself thats why i asked here to see if anyone could help me out.
and I just thought Angora were really pretty so i was interested in rescuing one of those specifically.
