A sweet young woman saw my picture on Craig’s List. I was a very cute baby. She brought me home, and almost immediately realized it was a mistake. Oh – she loved me all right, but she didn’t have enough resources to take proper care of me. I needed my shots, food, litter, and also to get fixed. She brought me to a VCA hospital and asked if they would take care of me, and “voila!” I had yet another home.

I was pretty much a feline Dennis the Menace there. Being caged alone, I was not learning proper social skills with other cats and kittens, and to be honest, I was pretty rough and tumble with the people as well.
They asked PZF if they would be able to take me in, and that was a good idea.

At PZF, I was housed with some other kittens and cats. A sweet but bigger kitten “whumped” me every time I became unruly until I figured out kitty manners. The volunteers wouldn’t put up with any biting or scratching shenanigans, either, and taught me that hands were for loving. Wow! What a great idea!

Slowly but surely, I have become more polite in my interactions. I am very smart, and once I got the concept, it didn’t take long for improvement to be noticeable daily.

If you are looking for a feline family member who will keep you smiling, I’m your guy. I am still Dennis the Menace, but will just charm your socks off with my insatiable curiosity and, well, busyness.

About Peter Zippi Fund For Animals

About Our Rescue Group...

In memory of Peter Zippi, a young man dedicated to the care of animals, The Peter Zippi Memorial Fund For Animals was founded in 1977 by Dr. Alice Villalobos. We have adopted out over 14,000 pets (mostly cats) since then. The fund is run by wonderful volunteers who work tirelessly to help those who can't help themselves. The fund sponsors spay/neuter vouchers to qualified persons, and shelter for and adoptions of lost and homeless animals.

Cats older than 1 year: $60.00

Over 5 years old to qualified person over 60 years old is free.

These are the minimum fees required. Please note they include the first (and sometimes more) vaccinations, microchipping, spay/neuter surgery, treatment for fleas, worms, and fairly often, costly treatment for other maladies, which result from abandonment

Of course, if you would like to make a larger donation to help cover our care for the homeless animals, we would be delighted. All donations over the minimum fees are tax deductible, and will receive written acknowledgment.

We have an adoption questionaire to fill out prior to being approved, and a personal interview with an adoption counselor is required; at our discretion, a home visit may be required. Adopters agree to keep cat(s) indoors only and to not declaw.
