Daisy Mae's Story...
Zani's al fresco Summer Adoptions follow us on FB to find us this summer as we will try new locations to meet the needs of NYC and support the little stores:)
Daisy is a CH, or cerebellar hypoplasia kitten. She has a pretty severe case but she gets around. The video shows how she does it. She uses a litter box, and is getting better as she grows. She is very sweet has a loud purr, enjoys being held, and can be quite the little diva. She wants to be with other kittens, she has a brother who is not affected and she plays with him. It would be great if she could go with her brother, an orange tabby. She loves to play and if she is left out she cried to join in. Daisy is not free in the foster home, not caged. She gets around very well and is able to take three or four steps. She faithfully uses a litter box. She has learned to eat standing at times. We hope there is a special home for her out there.
Update: Daisy is now on daily medication for neuro reflexes and it is helping. She would need to be on this forever. It is not expensive.
Please note: kittens must be adopted in pairs or to households with age appropriate cat(s) to ensure proper socialization and companionship. NO exceptions! If you would prefer a solo cat, we would be happy to recommend those cats who would do best as solo cats.
All our cats are tested for feline leukemia and FIV and also microchipped.
Many of us (cats/dogs) will be on display on Sundays and sometimes Saturday--please ask by writing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and following us on FB. If you are seriously interested in adopting one of us in particular, please fill out an application by Friday so that we can be sure to be there. Otherwise we decide based on other variables. Usually we are in our foster homes so this is a bit more stressful and a slightly artificial environment but we do want to be seen and find our furever homes too. Please come! And if you can't adopt, you can always donate!
If you want to know about cats/dogs specifically being shown at our adoption locations, please email us email@example.com closer to the date so we know your interest and will make every effort to have that pet at the event or let you know how and where you can meet. It is extemely helpful and speeds up adoption if the application is filled out prior to visiting us so please do that before coming to our weekend events. Our weekend locations are: Sundays usually and some Saturdays. Follow us on FB for latest updates. Usually we are in our foster homes so all this is a bit more stressful but we do want to be seen and find our furever homes. Please come! And if you can't adopt, maybe you can foster. And you can always donate:) Cats and Dogs are spayed/neutered, UTD w/ all age appropriate shots and microchipped. Cats are feline combo tested for FIV/FeLV; dogs are heartworm tested and rabies vax'd, (NOT lyme vaxed but we seriously recommend it); rabbits are spayed/neutered. Please fill out an application and email to: For Cats: firstname.lastname@example.org For Dogs: email@example.com For Rabbits: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Zani's Furry Friends is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to rescuing companion animals from New York City shelters where, unfortunately, they are at significant risk for euthanasia due to overcrowding. Beyond directly helping the animals we save, their rescue creates space at the shelter—thus giving another shelter cat or dog an opportunity to await a chance for adoption or rescue and thereby potentially saving yet another life. Our mission is to help you find the perfect furry companion for your family and to help every animal we rescue find the forever home they deserve. Entirely funded by donations, we depend on our volunteers to continue our work. We do not have a shelter or boarding facility, but instead rely upon foster homes to shelter and nurture our furry friends until a loving forever home is found. Although not always sure of the pedigree or background of each cat or dog, those we place are generally well-socialized family pets who came to the city shelter through no fault of their own. We rescue kittens and puppies, nursing moms and litters, adults, seniors and special needs cats and dogs who deserve another chance for a loving home.
Our foster home network allows us to become fully familiar with each of our available cats and available dogs and helps us ensure the best possible match with adoptive families We are always happy to answer any questions you may have about adopting a new pet and will gladly provide any support you may need throughout the adoption process and after you bring your new furry companion home. An experienced team of volunteers, fosters and trainers are always open to providing assistance. Please submit either a cat adoption application or a dog adoption application if you are interested in one of our adoptable pets.
We are a member of the Mayor's Alliance and a New Hope Partner with the Animal Care & Control of New York City.

Our Adoption Process...
We do require an application from which we conduct reference checks and home visits, followed by an interview, and finalized with a contract and donation to help defray our costs.
