Welcome to London Persian Rescue

Our founder  is a trained midwife and maternity nurse. Barbara has been nursing and loving Persians back to health for over 20 years and is a respected authority on caring for the breed. Barbara works closely with breeders and welfare organisation’s on Persian rescue and rehabilitation.  

How we work

We’re independent, funded entirely by donations, homing fees and fund raising events. We have no paid staff. All our cats are fully health checked, vaccinated, flea treated, chipped, neutered  and where necessary have dentals and grooming prior to rehoming.


If you want us to rehome your cat please give us the full picture regarding their health and the reasons you can no longer keep them. We have limited capacity, so if possible please have your cat vet checked before they come in – that way we can get them placed quickly with a new owner. We’re in central London and cats will need to be brought to us – we don’t have capacity to collect in most circumstances.


We ask for a £200 donation when we re-home a cat. This helps us cover medical treatment and standard procedures including  neutering, coat care and dentals which most of our rescued Persians need before joining their new families. We home across the UK and cats are  collected at a mutually convenient time.
