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!  EBONY & IVORY, Minneapolis, MN (updated June 30, 2019)

Ebony and Ivory are an incredibly sweet bonded pair of spay females.  They will turn 11 years old on July 1.   Ebony is black smoke, Ivory is blue point and white with beautiful blue eyes.  Their person was no longer able to care for them. 

They got along well with a cat-friendly 45 pound Labradoodle and their previous person's grandchildren.  After a proper introduction we feel they would do well with cat-friendly dogs and other calm, easy-going cats.  

Both are in general good health and are front declawed.  They visited the vet recently for senior blood panels, both showed no obvious illnesses or conditions.  Ivory has a heart long-ago diagnosed heart murmur but shows no symptoms.  They have excellent litterbox habits.  

They are located in Minneapolis, MN and must be adopted as a pair.  Adopters within a 5 hour drive will have priority.  

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