WHAT IS SOCK FIP?
Save Our Cats and Kittens from Feline Infectious Peritonitis (SOCK FIP) is a group of cat lovers, breeders, rescue groups, veterinarians and geneticists who are working together to support research on feline infectious peritonitis at the UC Davis Center for Companion Animal Health (CCAH). SOCK FIP is a volunteer organization run by people who have had personal experiences with this terrible disease. Funds raised will be directed to the CCAH and its experienced group of FIP researchers, who are part of a global coalition dedicated to finding solutions for FIP. SOCK FIP's mission includes helping cat lovers to gain a better understanding of FIP and learn ways to help prevent the disease.
This website is designed to provide comprehensive and up-to-date information on feline infectious peritonitis and FIP research, as well as support for those who are facing or have already experienced the loss of a beloved kitten or cat to FIP. It also can show how YOU can help us SOCK IT TO FIP!
SOCK FIP has been granted non-profit status by the IRS. All donations made to SOCK FIP are tax deductible and will support FIP research at UC Davis. For more information about giving, please click here.
ABOUT OUR LOGO
This sweet, loving little kitten, Lucy, was adopted at four months of age by the Sanchez family. The family adored her, but, tragically, Lucy died of FIP two months later. Claudia Sanchez, the artist, drew this portrait of Lucy as Lucy reached out with her tiny paw. The Board of Directors of SOCKFIP were so moved by Lucy’s story and Claudia’s rendering of her cat that we adopted Lucy as the cat in our logo.
