We were founded in 1990 to help with placement and care of unwanted and abused Persian cats
In 1990, a Persian cat named "Rudy" was left at the cat grooming shop of Wanda Roe. The caregiver did not return for Rudy. So, Wanda found a new home for Rudy with one of her grooming clients. Having been able to place Rudy so quickly, Wanda thought of Maureen Munns, who ran Persian Rescue in Livermore, and offered to place some of her Persian Rescues.
Wanda and Maureen worked together until the late '90's, when Maureen retired from Rescue. At that time, most of the cats in Rescue were housed and adopted at Wanda's in Mill Valley, CA.

THANK YOU!! To the veterinarians for their support and services and reduced rates!!
