Gloria, I took in a blind and deaf cat a couple of years ago (I think she could see shadows, maybe)- she was 18, and her owner was moving to Chicago and didn't want to be bothered with her- she was going to be put to sleep if no one took her, so of course Crazy Cat Lady here came to the rescue.

Gloria, I hope you will consider keeping him as he will do much better in a private home than a sanctuary. I have a blind cat and am going to take in a deaf cat so have been doing lots of research. He would be fine in one room of your house. He will learn his way around that room and feel safe.
