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.

Cassius & Lizzie, Washington DC (updated October 1, 2017)

Cassius in windowCassius and Lizzie are a bonded pair of eight-year-old sweet Cornish Rex  Vibrant and kitten-like, they both love to be close and curl up on their humans' laps.  These kitties are fun, playful, funny, talkative, sometimes chill and most of all, great company.

As they are so interactive they would do best in a home where people are home most of the day, or at least not away for 8+ hours.  They crave activity and would love to have children or cat-friendly dogs to play and cuddle with. 

They are on a special diet to prevent urinary crystals but are in otherwise good health.  They are spayed/neutered and have all their claws.

A home within driving distance of Washington DC is preferred.  If a perfect match is further away we would consider transporting them.

Please submit an Adoption Application or contact Lisa for more information.
