About the Foundation
The Stanley J. & Mildred L. Zamo Foundation was established in 2001. It was the desire of Mr. & Mrs. Zamo that the Foundation be devoted to the care of animals, both domesticated and wild.
Grants will be made to charitable organizations that:
- Provide care for domestic animals that are abandoned or ill. The funds should be used for the purposes of providing food, shelter, and care for the animals.
- Provide habitat for wild animals. Preference will be given to programs that provide habitat for endangered or threatened species.
The Foundation generally restricts its funding to the State of Florida.
