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.

Red & White Male, Tacoma, Washington (updated August 13, 2017)

Washington State Female Cornish Rex

This boy's person passed away leaving him without a home.  We don't know much about him yet.  The people with him who contacted us think the cat is approximately four, but he may be older. They say he's friendly and uses the litter box. Unfortunately we don't know any more right now.

***UPDATE: "She" is not a she, but a neutered male.  He's now in a foster home in Tacoma.  He's purry, affectionate and vocal.  We're in the process of evaluating his personality, health and habits in order to determine the best type of home for him.  We will be posting more pictures and information over the next two weeks.***

If you are interested in him please contact Lisa.

Lizzie & Cassius Bonded Pair of Cornish RexCassius and Lizzie are a bonded pair of sweet Cornish Rex.  They are eight years old and are vibrant and kitten-like.
