Facts about Dash

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: White (Mostly)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
My name is Dash (Mr. Dash as my foster mommy calls me) and for good reason. Look how gorgeous I am. I have beautiful almond shaped eyes
and a dashing goatee. My personality is quite extraordinary. I was living on the side of a busy freeway onramp by the airport and had to survive on the streets for almost a year. Some nice people came and rescued me so I could find my human to love furrrever. With that said, I thrive on human companionship and get super excited when someone walks in (probably cause I was so cold and lonely out there on the streets). I get so happy in fact, that I need to open my mouth to purr as heavy and loud as I do, which my foster mommy says cracks her up (it makes her laugh). Once you walk through the front door, I’m like your shadow and will follow you around waiting for the lovefest to begin . Being stroked on my head and scratched under my chin are my most favorite spots which triggers biscuit making. In fact, I make enough biscuits for an army. Once I settle down from the excitement of having my company come home, I plop down next to you and will just lay and purr and fall asleep with contentment. At this point, I enjoy just having a hand lay on me so I feel the constant physical touch from my human. That helps me know that I’m not alone. Oh, I enjoy spooning at bedtime too. I will purrrr you right to a sound peaceful sleep. So, if you’re looking for a great kitty who yearns human companionship (with no other pets), I’m the fellow for you.

About Helping Persian Cats

About Our Rescue Group...

Helping Persian Cats rescues Persians, Himalayans, Exotic Short Hairs and other cats, and places them in responsible and loving homes with people who care! Our network of volunteers rescues primarily purebred cats, from local animal shelters in the southern California area, and from breeders who are no longer able to care for their cats, and from private owners in special circumstances. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. Contributions to Helping Persian Cats are deductible under section 170 of the IRS Code. We rely entirely on donations from the public!

Our volunteers and foster homes work hard every day to help Persians and other cats who are in need. All of our foster cats live in cage-free foster homes where we can best assess their personalities and health prior to adoption.

We believe that the happiest and healthiest life for a cat is as a spayed or neutered pet. We ensure that all of our adoptable cats are spayed and neutered BEFORE placing them in new homes. We do not rely on "promises" to get the operation performed in the future.

In addition to spay/neuter, all of our adoptable cats have been seen at least once by a private veterinarian, are tested for feline leukemia and aids, are vaccinated for FVRCP, are dewormed and flea-free, and have received other medical care as needed.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We show our adoptable cats every other Saturday at Petco in Santa Monica from 11:30 to 3:30pm. The address is 2910 Wilshire Blvd. To find out the date of our next adoption event, please email us at

If possible, we recommend that you submit your application prior to attending our adoption events.
