Fiesta Hermosa – Spring 2018
Thanks to the Chamber of Commerce for Hermosa Beach for another successful event. We talked to many families that have adopted our cats and kittens in the past and we saw many pictures of them.. That is always something we look forward to. We had 8 adoptions, Jake, Justin, Dudley, Jelly Bean, Marshmallow, Wilbur and Peaches and Elon Meow. They are all in wonderful homes thanks to this event.
A big THANK YOU to Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau for another great Fiesta Hermosa weekend.
We placed 5 cats in just 3 days (Portia, Mason & Dixon, Ginger and Alice).
We have 1 more going soon (Mia) and a couple potentials.
Placing these fabulous felines, meeting our neighbors and hearing stories about former “Zippi Cats” makes for a fantastic weekend in Hermosa Beach, California.
Our Volunteers of the Year for 2016 are
Christine Lugo and Jeff Kardatzke.
Together taking charge of our website and all other social media, they have improved the quality and coverage that PZF has seen this past year. We now have story and photo displays for all our cats and kittens, increasing adoptions. Facebook now gets top attention. Not only are there always new pictures of our adoptable cats, but many adopters share their pictures of new family members. PLEASE “Like” us on Facebook! Our website has also been enhanced with more timely notice to readers of off site adoptions, changes in our on site adoptions, and events in which we encourage their participation or support. We feel so fortunate and happy to introduce Christine and Jeff as the PZF volunteers of the year.

Welcome to the new PZF Neff/Hoskinson Hostel!
After years of dreaming about it, our new hostel is finally a reality and a great showplace for all our adoptable “kids”.
Volunteer Christine Lugo and her husband, Jeffrey Kardatzke, donated one set of the very modern cages and Cynthia Higgins donated the other. These will house the cats and kittens when they are not out playing in the room.
We’re very proud of our many volunteers who worked tirelessly on the financing, the construction and the decorations, too.
We’d love to have you stop by and see it for yourself; perhaps even meet your new forever pet. The hostel is located in the lobby of the VCA Coast Animal Hospital in Hermosa Beach.
