We're On Netflix!

We're immensely proud to be part of the new Netflix series called Cat People! We had a team of 15 people following us around for an entire week last year - filming our every step and capturing daily life at our sanctuary. Our episode will be called 'God's Little People' and will air on July 7th 2021. Watch the trailer here!

Help GLPCR build a dedicated cat sanctuary

We are in urgent need of expanding our rescue and sanctuary for it’s continued existence where the overflow of cats can live safely and where we can once again start taking in rescues. Please consider supporting our campaign by donating on PayPal: https://www.paypal.com/

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.
