I was having a perfectly nice day, a stray adolescent kicking up my heels, when WHOOSH! Some woman caught me up and took me home. Well, in reality, it was pretty cold outside, and rained sometimes. Actually, the house looked pretty good!

Well, it wasn’t all rosy – she took me to a place called 'the Vet'. They did all kinds of things to make sure I was 'healthy'. My rescue lady told me that it's best to be spayed and up to date on vaccinations, so I felt somewhat better about the ordeal.

My lady brought me to PZF where I could live and play with friends while I waited to find another of those great homes like she had. Warm, windows to look out of, and lots of petting – do you have one of those? Where are you?

You may have guessed by now, I have a true tortie personality. If you would like a smart, fun, bos...ummmm self-confident partner in life – I’m it!

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.
