We rescue Persians and Himalayans from kill shelters, concentrating on one rescue at a time. Each rescue is seen by a veterinarian and treated and medicated if necessary; neutered or spayed; tested for FeLV and FIV; given its distemper shot; thoroughly groomed (including stripping if necessary) and bathed; and evaluated for its personality, and its likes and dislikes.
Adopting a friend
Potential adopters must have a reference from a veterinarian (which will be checked). We strongly prefer that adopters have had previous experience with Persians. Adopters must also sign a contract agreeing to return the kitty to us if it cannot be kept for any reason; agreeing to keep the kitty indoors; and agreeing to provide all necessary care. There is a $125 adoption fee, which helps to indicate the seriousness of the new family, and which helps (barely) to defray the costs that are put into each rescue.
