My Name is Pauline Wright and I am the Rescue Manager. In 1988 I opened a small Boarding Cattery and although I had always loved cats I had never been in contact with any of the Pedigree Breeds.
The cattery soon welcomed Siamese, Burmese, Birmans and Persians and eventually I was asked to keep or re home one of my boarders, a large handsome Persian boy who we called Teddy. We quickly became besotted by our new arrival and planned to breed Persians. My husband bought me two breeding queens, but he died shortly afterwards. I did not have the heart to carry on with the plans, but decided to start a rescue centre for Persians instead.
I have worked in co operation with another cattery owner from Wakefield, Audrey Rae for many years. The Cats Protection League and the RSPCA soon heard about our work and we take in hundreds of cats between us each year.
Our rescue cats all have the freedom of our large house and gardens. more ....
AS MANY OF YOU MAY KNOW, we have a number of rescue cats who live here permanently, in our home of course! Due to age or long term medical/behavioural problems and because none of our cats are euthanized unless absolutely advised by the vet, they become pets and take over!
We've decided, reluctantly, to take a leaf out of the larger Rescues' book and ask you lovely lot if you'd be happy to sponsor one or more of these chaps and chapesses. It would help greatly with their medical and living costs, we as usual, wouldn't be taking a penny. A monthly donation is what we are asking for, as much or as little as you can afford, this can be done via the 'Paypal' link or as a Bank transfer to the Rescue. You will receive a Certificate showing details of the cat you are supporting and there will be twice yearly updates which can be sent electronically or by mail.
Asking for financial support is our least favourite thing but our costs never seem to go down.
PLEASE NOTE: That all our cats are spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated (including Felv) and have any relevant veterinary treatment completed ( dentals, etc.) and due to the high cost of this treatment we ask from £250 per cat and from £300 for any cat younger than three years old. All our cats come with one months free insurance and a free food pack. Please also note that on the rare occasion that we have kittens they are more expensive.
St Francis Persian Cat Rescue have helped hundreds of Persian cats since we started rehoming unwanted and homeless animals in 1993 when we first opened our doors. We have a wealth of experience and there really is nothing we have not seen. All of the cats that come into St Francis Persian Cat Rescue are checked by our Veterinary Surgeons Bishopton Veterinary Group. They are blood tested for Feline Leukaemia and Feline AIDS.
The cats are spayed or neutered and vaccinated against Flu, Enteritis and Feline Leukaemia. Teeth are checked and dental work carried out if needed. Any other conditions that require attention are also treated regardless of cost. The cats are also de-matted and thoroughly groomed.
