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.
