Our 2014 Holiday Letter

Persian and Himalayan Cat Rescue

Serving San Francisco/Northern California.

PHCR helps the rescue, placement and care of unwanted and abused Persian cats.

A big and heartfelt thank you to a great friend.  Sadly, we recently lost a true friend of Rescue, Ms. H. Campbell.  Because Ms. Cambell loved the cats and valued and supported our rescue work, she remembered us in her will.  Her legacy means a great deal to us, and will live on in being able to help these cats for a long time to come.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Ms. Campbells family and friends.


We support our Rescue operation through:
