St Francis Persian Cat Rescue is a small independent cat rescue based in the Bedale area of North Yorkshire in the UK. As our name suggests we specialise in the rescue and re-homing of Persian and other long haired breeds of cat. Although we are based in North Yorkshire we consider ourselves a national group. Indeed our supporters and helpers come from all over the country. We have NO PAID OFFICIALS.
The holiday season and competition for family finances are creating an unprecedented crisis with record numbers of owners abandoning their pets rather than pay cattery costs when they go away. St Francis Persian Cat Rescue, located near Bedale, is facing such high demand that even its overspill short-term foster homes are being taken.
The rescue has just won a pet food company’s Rescue Cat of the Year Award for a cat they rehomed. The rescue is so desperate it even has some fostering volunteers as far away as London and Bristol who are helping save cats lives by providing temporary homes ......
