It is our belief that only the reverence for life in its many expressions can bring us humans into a new relationship with the future and this planet and it is towards this that we work and do what we do.

CAT PEOPLE explores our fascinating relationship with cats through the lens of some the most remarkable, and surprising "cat people" in the world, defying the negative stereotypes of what it means to be a cat person while revealing the fundamental truths of what it means to have deep bonds with these fiercely independent, mysterious creatures.
Our Next Phase
We are in urgent need of expanding our rescue and sanctuary for it’s continued existence. Upfront we’re in need of a new place to create another sanctuary where the overflow of cats can live and we can once again start taking in rescues. Can you help us make it happen? More details coming soon!
Some Kind Words From Some Kind People!
Kallista and Athena are 2 years old sisters, born on a street in Athens. The care they received at GLPCR was wonderful. They were nurtured, well socialised, played with, and above all, loved as though they were Joan and Richard's own! Joan kept me updated and sent me lots of photos to show their progress.
In January 2019 I saw a picture GLPCR posted of Luna, she was all alone looking. I knew I had to do something, so I wrote to GLPCR to adopt her. Joan told me it was not going to be easy as Luna was quite feral and shy. Two months later she was ready to travel and thanks to one of GLPCR helpers, she arrived by plane to Switzerland.
We read the story about Pantouff's rescue and we wanted to adopt him. He stole our hearts from the beginning. We decided to bring him to Holland ourselves. GLPCR got all the paperwork in order for us; a passport for the cat stating its vaccinations and info about the chip. All the cats are chipped, and spayed / neutered.
