Know of a Cornish Rex in Need?

Cornish Rex Friends was formed by a group of friends working together for rescue and protection of the Cornish Rex breed. The founding group consists of responsible breeders, exhibitors and pet owners that have united to work together for the Cornish Rex breed.

We aim to:

  • Share information and giving assistance with the care of rescued Cornish Rex cats.
  • Share information on food, care and medical treatment.
  • Help with caring for abused Cornish Rex cats.
  • Work as partners with animal shelters and government rescue organizations.

We welcome those with sincere interest in working together as a group to coordinate Cornish Rex cat rescue efforts including placement and fostering. We welcome those interested in providing secure and loving foster homes and those interested in providing secure loving permanent homes.

This group is not an extension of any other Cornish Rex cat organization. We are dedicated to the health, welfare and protection of the Cornish Rex cat breed. We have volunteers nationwide and are based in Southern and Central California.

REMUS, Los Angeles, CA (updated May 13, 2018)

Remus is an approx. 9 year old male at the City of LA South LA shelter in need (he's mislabeled as a Devon). Talking with the shelter, they say he is super friendly, happy and appears to be in good health.

He was surrendered due to litterbox issues, so will need time, patience and someone with the appropriate space to try retraining techniques. Ideally, he'd start off in a small, contained area and gradually be given more space as he continues litterbox use.

If you are interested in fostering him for Cornish Rex Friends, please contact me, Lisa, at or text me at 818-269-3756. Cornish Rex Friends will cover the city shelter fees and approved vet expenses and are we are available via phone/email/text for questions and advice. If a great match, fosters get priority in adopting.

On a personal note, if this were any other time in the past 15 years I would have fostered him personally, as I prefer special needs cases. But, I am two months into an eight month down-to-the-studs house restoration/renovation project, it breaks my heart that I can't take him in.

To be added to our general interest list for future rescues please submit an adoption application.
