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.

ADOPTED! Simone, New Orleans,  LA (updated December 3,  2016)

Simone the Cornish RexSimone the Cornish RexSimone is a sweet, gentle five year old spayed, front-declawed female.  After four and half years together, the family's other Cornish Rex started attacking Simone.  Therefore her family has made the heartbreaking decision to rehome Simone.  She's is a very affectionate, cuddly lap cat.  She likes to hunt bugs and play with string-like cat toys.  She's never been around dogs.

This is an adoption directly through Simone's people not through Cornish Rex Friends.  Cornish Rex Friends rescue is providing this listing as a courtesy. 

ADOPTED! Mickey, Phoenix, AZ (updated December 3,  2016)

Mickey in Phoenix

Mickey lost his home when his person had to move out of state to a place which doesn't allow pets.  He is an energetic, playful and affectionate four-year-old neutered male with all his claws.  A talkative whirlwind, he's always in motion--running, jumping and climbing.  When he's done playing he likes to cuddle with his humans.  He'd love to join a Mickey in Phoenixfamily with other active cats, cat-friendly dogs or children.      

Mickey has recently visited the vet for an exam, updated vaccinations and microchipping.  He has a follow-up visit scheduled for next week.  He has excellent litter box habits.

Homes within a four hours' drive of Phoenix, AZ are preferred.  We will consider shipping Mickey a further distance for the perfect match. 

We have two Yahoo! Groups, CornishRexFriends, our rescue-focused list; CornishRxBC, our everything else list: stories, pictures, health and behavior discussions, litter announcements, etc.
