About Us

Peter Zippi


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 helped approximately 16,000 animals (mostly cats and dogs) since then. The Fund is run by wonderful volunteers who work tirelessly to help those who can’t help themselves. Our mission is to network to end homeless pets through the intake and safe placement of cats and kittens and the provision of financial aid to community members for spay and neuter of community cats or any companion animal species.
