Boy, was I in trouble! Something happened to really hurt my tail. When I was taken to the shelter, it just hung lifeless. It had been badly broken at the base. Because of the nerve damage, it was never going to wave proudly again, and had to be amputated. It was really a beautiful tail, too! I have lovely thick medium length fur, and what a plume it was. But that’s all in the past. I am really very polite and loving, despite grieving my tail. I barely flinched when they drew blood, and didn’t even blink for my vaccination. I had lived outside for at least a while, as my toes are street-hardened, and my thick ruff was sorely in need of a brush-out. Now, as I have recuperated from the surgery, I am ready to find my new home.  I can see it now – loving arms holding me, safe and warm, and NEVER having to brave the hard streets and perils of outdoors again. A handsome young cat, I am intelligent and patient, and they are very nice to me at PZF.  Take your time; I can wait for my perfect home. If you wait too long, though, you may not find me still here. 

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.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Fees:

up to 6 months of age: $110.00

6 to 12 months of age: $85.00

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.
