*** COURTESY POSTING - The Peter Zippi Fund for Animals will provide you with the appropriate contact if you are interested in learning more about this fabulous feline. ***

This gorgeous long haired tabby boy is about 8 years old and currently living at a vet clinic with his best buddy Bandit (see pic).

Boxer has tested positive for the Feline Corona Virus so he must be an only cat, or he can go to a home with another virus positive cat (like his buddy Bandit!).

Special Needs:

Feline coronavirus (FCoV)is a common infectious agent, spread by fecal-oral contact and/or inhalation. Most cats can clear the viral infection after exposure and have no evidence of disease. In a small number of infected cats, the coronavirus can mutate and cause FIP, an inevitably fatal disease causing immunosupression and multi-organ dysfunction.

Most cats infected with coronovirus show no signs of disease. The cats can live completely normal lives if the virus does not mutate into a virulent form.

Boxer is a super friendly guy who gets along great with feline-friendly dogs. (FCoV is not transmissible to dogs.)

He is otherwise healthy, neutered and up to date on vaccinations.

If you'd like to give Boxer (and perhaps his buddy Bandit too) a loving, indoor-only home forever, please contact the VCA College Park Animal Hospital in Cypress at 714-827-6861.

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.
