Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: A non-profit 501(c)(3) organization founded in August 2007 in Walnut Creek, California, the White Kitty Foundation is the brainchild of Cris Tarozzi.  Cris has a long history of caring for pets, and decided to turn her passion into this Foundation. The White Kitty Foundation: • provides adoption assistance to pet owners who can no longer care for their pets, regardless of the breed, age or condition of the pet • aids the elderly in planning for the care and guardianship of their pets when they are no longer able to provide for such care • helps rescue, heal and shelter abandoned pets until permanent forever homes can be found for them • works with other local community-based animal rights groups through coordinated fund-raisers, adoption efforts and community education.

I love the White Kitty Foundation and Chris. I found myself in a situation with no place for my 16 yr old large red tiger cat. Normie was my best friend and best cat ever. Chris took him in for the time I needed to get a place to live. He passed to the Rainbow Bridge almost 3 yrs now. I am so thankful for the extra time I was allowed to spend with my best friend because of White Kitty & Chris. Chris has a picture of me (Sue) & Norm. My new kitten who is now all grown up I got from Anje. She rescues and hand feeds kittens who have no mommy or their mom doesn't care for them.

I've been working with Cris and her foundation for well over a year now and I must say that I have never met another person so dedicated to the work that they do. She is the most selfless person I have ever met and would do anything for her dogs. She makes sure that every dog that comes through the foundation finds a real "forever" home with people who will make sure to take care of them and not only give them love but also make sure that they eat healthy food and get proper exercise. This foundation is really about the animals, which can't be said for all the other adoption facilities around here.

I am a canine massage therapist and came across the White Kitty Foundation whilst looking for a charity to volunteer with and have been with them ever since. I love the fact that they rescue dogs and cats that are about to be put to sleep just because they have been in the shelter their alloted time and nobody else wants them. The White Kitty do a fantastic job at caring for those animals that are overlooked by adoptees because they are too old, too ill or are labelled with behavioural issues. They frequently have fund raising events to raise money and awareness and could even do with more volunteers to help walk and socialise the animals and even foster them. They do an outstanding job and have changed their whole way of life, sacrificing many things in order to make this foundation work.

Having been involved in this young non-profit since its inception, I have had the pleasure to work with the founders and Board on special events and fundraising. The Fall Borges Ranch BBQ brought out the best in people and their pets as we celebrated the life and health of George - a seven-year old German Shepard-mix, who was battered, shot and then dumped at the Shelter. After surgery and recovery in the care of the White Kitty Foundation, George has recovered from his physical injuries, and while he requires lifetime care, George has found love in a permanent sanctuary home! Along with the great "grub", the fiddle and strings music, the barn dancing and auction on a warm and sunny fall day...there wasn't too much else for which we could wish.
