MIssion Persian Cats!
We are hoping to heop these Persian & Persian mix cats who are all looking for a new life in the USA! They have been living in a overcrowded foster home for at least 2 years as finding a new home as an adult cat in Egypt is extremely difficult!
This fundraisier is to raise the flight fee expenese to send these 6 kitties to the USA from Cairo, Egypt to JFK, NY, it is $200 each cat! Once they arrive they will be well cared for in our rescue, they will be under quarantine for 14 days. During this time they are examined by our veterinarian, we treat them for any conditions that were not treated in Egypt, and when ready we find them amazing homes.

Why do we rescue cats from The Middle East?
The streets are crawling with these beautiful cats!
A majority of purebred kittens are sold in pet stores for under $100 and there are pet stores on every corner in major cities all over The Middle East. People will breed their cats and sell them to the stores simply for money as it’s an “easy” way to gain a profit. There is no regard to the cat’s health or wellbeing, and anyone can take the kitten home. This usually ends up with dire results as these cats can end up abused, neglected, and left to starve on the streets.
Unfortunately there are no state or locally managed animal shelter systems, and when a pet owner must part with their cat(s) they usually just leave them behind, and that means on the streets. Most of the time, the rescuers find these cats on the street either begging for food or hurt and in need of veterinary attention. Cats on the streets are at high risk of torture and death. They face harm from other animals, feral cats and feral street dogs. There are also sick humans who will hurt them too. Remember these are purebred cats that are domesticated, they have no fighting instincts. They trust people and are usually unable to defend themselves. Sick people will enjoy torturing these homeless cats, some are poisoned or run over by cars and left to die on the streets. Yes this is commonplace, and not viewed as a crime. In most of these countries, there are NO consequences to the humans guilty of these horrific acts!
Our part in this rescue mission is to find these highly sought after breeds a new life here in the USA, it’s their only chance, and we are their only hope!
