Cookie (now Lucky} owes his life to the skill and care of Rachel our special Vet and the grant from our friends at Support Adoption for Pets

Cookie came to us after the owner of the Cattery he had been left at realised nobody  was coming back for him. Cookie arrived needing to be neutered, de- matted, micro chipped, vaccinated  and given a dental, which is fairly standard when our rescued Persians arrive at the Rescue. However his breathing problem wasn’t standard and poor Cookie needed a complicated, potentially dangerous operation to enable him to breath. We knew without the surgery Cookie could not survive and so the grant we were recently awarded by Support Adoption for Pets gave us the life saving funds to pay for his treatment.

Our fantastic Vet Rachel spent five hours performing this delicate and vital surgery, and due to her skill and the dedicated aftercare of her team he has made a full recovery. 

Here you can see Rachel and Cookie as she tells us his operation has been a complete success. 

With his clean bill of health Cookie then needed a new forever home and we are so delighted that a lovely couple have adopted him. Not only does he have a new Mamma and Pappa {as his new family are from Italy) he has a new name – Lucky, which suits him perfectly. If Lucky could talk he would say that from a life without a home spent in pain he has gone to living the ‘dolce vita‘ in his fabulous new home and just to prove it here he is in the  photo resting on Mums arm.  ~Thank you to everyone who helped us give Lucky his special happy ending and fresh start.



Welcome to London Persian Rescue – Rescuing and Re-homing Persians for 20 years

We are a small personal, specialist pedigree  rescue who rehome Persians and occasionally  associated breeds throughout the UK. We rarely if ever have kittens. We are a registered charity who rely on donations and fund raising to support our work. We have no paid staff, so every penny  is spent on our Persians.  Our cats are health checked, vaccinated, de-matted and chipped prior to re-homing. We offer support and advice on an on going basis, and many of our adopters keep in touch. Visit our available cats page to see who needs a home,  and read our rescue stories to share our happy endings. you can read more about us on the ‘about us’ part of the site.


Kind words from Sky TV Presenter Stephen Dixon

”I have had cats all my life. They aren’t our pets, but members of our family. It is devastating to think how many need our help through neglect and mistreatment.I am proud to support London Persian Rescue, and the work they do to help our beautiful friends find loving homes”
