An All-Volunteer Organization

From a core group of seven volunteers, PPCR grew until now we have several dozen members, including foster moms, transporters, web support, reference checkers, and so many more. No member of PPCR is paid a salary, so every penny donated to us goes to care for the cats we rescue.

We are lucky to have, among our fosters individuals who are knowledgeable about the characteristics and needs of specific breeds, such as Persians, or hybrid breeds, such as Bengals. In addition, we have volunteers with extensive experience in rehabilitating sick cats, socializing shy cats, or helping owners with cat problems they face at home. We also have fosters who specialize in caring for kittens, and of those, some have special skills required to care for pregnant cats and provide appropriate neonatal support to a feline mom and her litter.

Intake and Foster Care

Of course, we dream of the day when there will be many fewer cats needing rescue, but in the meantime, we feel proud to be able to find homes for hundreds of cats each year.  Most cats come to us from shelters, some from individuals, and at times we help breeders dissolve their catteries.  Inevitably, some also come to us in connection with animal-control actions against hoarders or kitten mills; we have helped in several large-scale situations involving 50 or more cats, from all over the West Coast of the United States.

The majority of our cats spend weeks or months (and occasionally years) in rescue in-home environments, where once they have recovered from the initial trauma of abandonment, they live lives similar to what they hope to experience in their new, forever homes.  Cats requiring veterinary care receive needed treatment.  Cats who enjoy the company of other cats have opportunities to mingle, and many have regular interaction with children—some even with dogs!  Thus, we are able to give potential adopters extensive information about the personality and needs of each cat.

We do tend to have more cats in need than we have foster homes available, so are always looking for new fosters.

It’s no secret that we see pets from all walks of life at Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue. Some animals arrive because they were lost, alone and abandoned on the street trying to survive. Others arrive because some circumstance makes it impossible for their person to keep them, and so it becomes our goal to find them a new home. Some are sick and injured, some are healthy and some have never known what a true “home” could be. No matter their background we are here to show kindness and act as a safe haven for those in need. 

Ahhh yes, kindness; Kindness is the ability to communicate with love, listen with patience, and act with compassion. It is such a simple way to show another that there really is love to be found in the world.

You can make a difference to every cat and kitten that comes through our rescue. A special heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you for your support.

Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue


Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue (PPCR) is an all-volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, socialization, and rehoming of purebred and other exceptional cats and kittens into permanent forever homes. We are further dedicated to educating the public in the proper care of specific purebred breeds and in the importance of spaying and neutering pets to control the animal population.


$70,000 - MEDICAL SPONSORSHIP: This is the area highest in costs. With rising veterinarian costs we never seem to have enough to cover everything! This program covers anything outside the normal rescue and foster care. This is typically advanced medical care such as orthopedic surgery, eye care/surgery, and other specialized surgeries or medical treatments based on the needs of the cat or kitten. There may also be special medical costs due to the effects of abuse and neglect. Our fosters manage the care and provide them with a safe and caring “home” to recuperate. We will have specific fundraisers via sponsorships throughout the year to raise funds for specific cats and kittens.

$45,000 - RESCUE & FOSTER: Purebreds Plus takes in between 300-450 cats and kittens a year. The cats and kittens are placed in volunteer foster homes that care, love and rehabilitate them as needed. Donations for this critical area covers all associated costs for food, supplies, general medical care, spay/neuter and behavioral support if needed. It should be noted in-kind donations are also appreciated, typically cat and kitten food, through our published Amazon Wish List.

$30,000 - HIDDEN SUPER STARS: Our newest program addresses cats that are just not as adoptable. This includes special needs, serious health conditions that will limit their lifespan, and seniors with ongoing conditions where they need to be kept healthy, comfortable and most of all loved. Donations fund the care and maintenance for these cats and kittens until we can find that very special adopter.

$10,000 - KITTEN SAMURIA: This is a special program for neonatal and underage kittens. Our experienced fosters take on these babies. It is a true labor of love. Donations cover special formula and other required supplies until they are eating solid food and ready for adoption.

$20,000 - FIP PROGRAM: Feline Infectious Peritonitis is not what any cat owner or rescue wants to hear. Until very recently this was a death sentence for the cat or kitten. We slowly started treating cats in 2020. We now have this phenomenal program in place. There is hope! Our supporter's compassion and generosity make this program a reality!
