Our silver paws sweetheart!

Chippy is a super duper sweet senior guy who has a sad back story. He spent his life well-loved and cared for, but his elderly owner passed away a couple months ago. Chippy, orphaned and tied up with his former owner's estate, stressed himself terribly while all alone in his apartment. We are so thankful that his owner's estate conservator came by regularly to feed, walk, and love on him during this terribly lonely time, then reached out to us for help. Once Chippy was cleared to go to the shelter, we scooped him up as soon as possible. He's now in a wonderfully loving foster home where he's receiving lots of TLC. He had a comprehensive senior check-up done and is getting bloodwork and a thorough dental cleaning while he's with us. The stress of losing his owner was so hard for Chippy that he lost about half his fur while waiting in "estate limbo". We've got him on salmon-everything in hopes that his omegas will bounce back and his fur will regrow! Chippy is so meek, mild, and mellow. He just wants a quiet companion who will take care of him til the end. He may have many years left, who knows! If you've got a soft spot for a sweet senior guy who's been through a tough time, please consider Chippy. He's waiting for your application!

About St. Francis Animal Protection Society

About Our Rescue Group...

In early 1971, Helen Galantiere had a vision; she was frustrated by the inadequacies and ineptitude of local and national organizations that claimed to be working in favor of the animals. She became a pioneer in animal rescue by starting one of the first 501C charitable organizations dedicated to educating people about the proper way to care for their pets, working to stop laboratory testing, and addressing the issues of overpopulation and crowded animal shelters. Incorporated in December 1971, The St. Francis Animal Protection Society was launched in 1972 as she worked tirelessly to place thousands of homeless pets, while writing a weekly column for the “Marin Independent Journal” titled “Animal World” educating the public on humane animal care. She touched the lives of many people and creatures; dogs, cats, and an occasional monkey or rabbit that came her way, and although her tough demeanor with people often left enemies along the way, she never relented on her quest to be a presence for the animals. On March 23, 2010 she passed away at home with hospice care at the age of 89. Her daughter, Caron, now runs St. Francis, continuing the legacy that her mother started forty years earlier.
