My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:


Zyppr is a 4 yr. old, 40 lb. Staffordshire Lab mix. She originally was found at 9 months of age in the Bayou in a hoarding situation. She was brought to Southern California and is currently residing in the city of Tehachapi.

Zyppr is a very loving, happy female who loves to play with her toys and chase balls. She also enjoys going on walks and is great on a leash. She is a cuddle bug and will snuggle in bed with you but is also okay in her own bed. She is a very smart and perceptive.

She is loved by everyone where she is living now but she is not good with the family’s other female dog. She would be great as the only dog or with another medium-sized male dog as a playmate.

Zyppr is up to date on her vaccinations, is spayed and microchipped.

This special lady needs a special someone or family to call her own!

If interested in learning more about ZYPPR please CONTACT Roxane at or text (310) 985-4132.

Her fosters will travel 2-3 hours away from their home in Tehachapi if the right adopter is found!

More about this rescue

Whiskers & Tails Foundation was founded on February 1, 2005 by Lynne Amano, a vegetarian. Our primary mission is to rescue dogs, cats, to assist needy pet owners, to educate the general public on the humane treatment, and care of all animals.

Our goal is to prevent animal cruelty, and make their lives better while with us. We continue to form relationships with local animal shelters, rescue groups, individuals, volunteers, city, county organizations and supporters. We also donate to other organizations to assist them with their mission objectives.

One of our programs assists senior citizens with their companion animals by finding temporary pet housing, while the owner is hospitalized, in recovery, or permanent homes in cases of the owner's terminal illness, or death.

Whiskers & Tails Foundation believes in spay and neuter of all animals, especially feral cats. We rescue barnyard animals, and educate public on backyard wildlife.

Whiskers & Tails Foundation is a registered 501 (C) (3) Non Profit Organization, Tax ID #02-0737421. We are based out of the sunny Southern California, in the City of Rancho Palos Verdes. Our funding comes entirely from donations, our adoption fees and fund raisers. We do not receive any City, County or Government funding. Your tax deductible donation is used 100% for the welfare, and veterinary care of the animals while they are with us.
