Do you want to provide loving care to cats and kittens? There are two main activities that our volunteers provide: 1) loving care by holding, petting, socializing, and playing with the cats and kittens and 2) ensuring that their environment is clean and safe. Volunteer orientation & training is provided in 2-3 on-site sessions. Partnering with a seasoned volunteer is part of this training.
We need ADULT VOLUNTEERS, AGE 18 AND OLDER to socialize with the cats and kittens by touch and play which is essential to maximize their development and ensure they have every opportunity to lead a well-adjusted life. There are also cats/kittens that need particular care due to recent surgery or other medical conditions.
Cleaning duties include scooping kitty litter pans, cleaning cages, cleaning the adoption area, and laundering bedding and towels.
Please complete and submit a volunteer application, https://www.peterzippifund.org/volunteering/.
About PETER ZIPPI MEMORIAL FUND INC
1560 PACIFIC COAST HWY, HERMOSA BEACH, CA 90254, US
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 any companion animal species.
Peter Zippi Memorial Fund is an organization committed to making a difference in the lives of animals. We were founded in memory of Peter Zippi, a beloved animal lover who had a profound impact on the community. Established in 1977, our organization began with a small group of passionate individuals dedicated to honoring Peter's memory and his unwavering love for animals.
At Peter Zippi Memorial Fund we focus on the rescue and rehabilitation of abandoned and homeless cats in addition to providing financial assistance through monthly spay-neuter events and our spay-neuter voucher program. We strive to reduce the stray cat population by promoting responsible pet ownership, and advocating for affordable veterinary services including spay-neuter surgeries.
Over the years, our collective efforts have led to numerous heartwarming success stories. Through tireless dedication and the support of our community, we have rescued and rehomed thousands of cats in addition to facilitating free or more affordable spay-neuter surgeries for thousands of companion animals (mostly cats and dogs). This would not have been possible without the generosity and support of our supporters. Contributions, whether through donations, volunteer work, or advocacy, have been instrumental in bringing about positive change in the lives of animals.
