|In memory of Peter Zippi, a young man dedicated to the care of animals, The Peter Zippi 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 medical treatment, shelter, and adoptions for lost and homeless animals.|
Jake is one of the most loving cats/kittens we have ever come across. He was brought to the city shelter as a stray kitten, and spent from July until October there awaiting his “people.” We cannot understand why he didn’t get snapped right up, and the shelter staff didn’t either. The only reason he survived so long in a cage there is that they recognized his beautiful spirit and would not put him down. PZF received a call from the shelter that it was inundated with many more cats than they had space to keep. We were able to shoehorn a few more into our space, and Jake was first on the list. For all the time in the little steel cage, he never lost his willingness to trust and reach out for love. He leaps from the open door into anyone’s arms, motor running. He gets along well with the other cats, and is very active as an “adolescent boy" Jake will make your heart sing for a lifetime.
