Birman Welfare and Rescue is one of the largest pedigree rescue organisations in the Cat Fancy and a Registered Charity.Thank you for visiting our website.
We were proud to have been awarded the "BEST RESCUE AWARD" by the GCCF for a second time in May 2016. We were not allowed to enter in 2015 due to winning the previous year but were back in the line up in 2016 and won the award once again!
We have safehouses across the United Kingdom for the cats in our care, which are cared for by a dedicated team of volunteers. Our safehouse holders are chosen carefully, we only place a dedicated safehouse where there is no other rescue safehouse, this ensures they have the time to dedicate special care to some of our more needy cats.
Genuine offers of homes are always needed and single cat homes are often required, especially for older cats whose devoted owner may have died or for health reasons are no longer able to care for their beloved Birman. These cats have so much love to give and their average age tends to be between 6 - 10 years, which is not considered old for a Birman. Abandoned or lost Birmans are also cared for while we try and find their owner or for a thoroughly vetted home.
All cats are neutered and micro chipped before leaving our care. Vaccinations are also brought up to date if required.
Occasionally we have younger Birmans but very rarely kittens as these are usually returned to their breeder where possible.
