|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.|
Hello! I'm Zipper, a handsome young grey tabby male with white mittens.
I was "relinquished by owner" to a city shelter. My recent tail amputation had healed.
I was quite confused, as someone cared enough about me to take care of my injured tail, but, for some reason, couldn't keep me.
So when the people from The Peter Zippi Fund came to visit the shelter, I came forward to greet them and gently asked for affection. They were quite smitten with my gentle and loving personality and took me with them that very day.
My doctor gave me a clean bill of health and estimated my birth date to be in the first week of June 2013.
I am a bit depressed without a loving indoor-only home of my own, but I'm confident the right family will come along soon.
I'm a quiet guy, but I do love to play! And catnip? Wow. I love it!
I'm a bit wary in new situations but once I feel secure, I'm absolutely fine! I really respond to gentle affection from humans. I take my time getting to know other cats and very active children. A gentle, feline-friendly dog is okay with me - after we're properly introduced, of course.
I'm healthy, neutered, tested negative for FIV and FeLV, microchipped, and up to date on my vaccinations.
If you have room in your heart to heal my own broken one, please come
meet me at PZF on Thursdays between 5pm and 6pm or Sundays between 1pm
and 3pm. You can call 310.379.1264 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
if you'd like more information about me, and please remember to provide your phone number so our adoption counselor can contact you.
Gentle loving purrrs,
