The Zimmer Feline Foundation is a 501(c)3 private operating foundation providing cat welfare services in New Mexico since 2010 and earlier (2000-2009) in Michigan under our predecessor Zimmer Foundation.

We do not solicit government funding or donations from the community.   But any donations we receive are fully deductible under current IRS regulations for a private operating foundation.  Alternatively, donations may be made to other cat organizations in our name that may have a more immediate need for funding.

Program Disclosures

We reserve the right to change or terminate any of our programs at any time, at our sole discretion, and without notice. Our liability to voucher recipients, veterinary clinics, and non-profits is limited solely to payment for the work we authorize that is done in accordance with pre-approved pricing and invoicing agreements. We accept no responsibility for any ill effects to cats or individuals resulting from the veterinary services we fund. Program eligibility guidelines are just that, and approval of individual applications is at our sole discretion. Prior participation in any of our programs does not guarantee future participation.


We have no formalized volunteer program but do appreciate community members and organizations who refer individuals to us that need help getting their cats fixed. We also appreciate those who put up our poster on community bulletin boards.
