The aims of The Norwegian Forest Cat Rescue and Welfare Society is two fold. Our priority is to attend to Norwegian Forest cats in need of homes. Details of this service can be found on our WELFARE page. The Society is also active in promoting  the important work of the Norwegian Pioneers by encouraging to maintain the traditional type and preserve the original characteristics and essence of this natural majestic breed. This aim will be pursued through the following objectives:

To promote responsible breeding, only from selected cats showing the best qualities from healthy bloodlines, to improve on size, coat quality and other characteristics which enable this breed to survive the Scandinavian climate, not forgetting the wonderful "Wild Expression" these cats are well known for.

We will promote the breed and its heritage by raising public awareness.

Provide advice and ongoing support for members and younger generations of Norwegian Forest Cat owners, breeders and exhibitors by promoting responsible ownership and good husbandry practices.

Act and assist in all aspects of welfare needs of the Norwegian Forest Cat.

To arrange fundraising events, seminars, small fun shows, talks and other social functions to raise funds for the welfare section.

To encourage people to become members therefore, their membership fees go to welfare.

Share the experience and pleasure of owning the Norwegian Forest Cat.

To remain independent of other organisations which allows us the freedom to make appropriate choices in order to fulfil our aims.
