Founded in memory of doctors Richard and Betty Agee, the parents of Cindy Minghelli, we memorialize their life-long careers caring for both humans as well as their furry little friends. Loving all animals, trained and licensed wildlife rehabbers (squirrels, raccoons opossums, skunks, and some reptiles), Cindy & the late Ed Minghelli established Agee in October 1999, to help end the suffering created by today's often-deliberate massive pet (dog and cat) overpopulation.

In July 2003, we relocated to California and have taken on our biggest challenge - to open "Fat Kitty City", a permanent sanctuary to provide MAXIMUM care to our animals. Most rescue groups, though doing their best, simply house animals in small, individual cages, or large "warehouse" commercial buildings. There, cats do not have a "natural" environment, resulting in many contagious diseases spreading rampantly through the facility. Nor do they take feline AIDS (FIV) positive animals, or those needing other, serious medical regimens. These are the "discarded" poor souls, with nowhere to run.

We have now established a "Sanctuary" for unwanted pets and are busy trapping, spaying, neutering, adopting, and caring for rescued animals. At our Sanctuary, FatKittyCity doesn't merely "warehouse" a bunch of animals in one, indoor warehouse, where diseases can run rampant, it allows kitties to roam indoors and outdoors, in a protected environment, simulating a "forever" home. They have the necessary room to actually run, play and climb trees!


The Agee Memorial Wildlife Fund, Inc., (Agee) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, dedicated to ending needless animal suffering, through spaying, neutering, socializing, adopting, and other aggressive approaches. We currently operate our one-of-a-kind sanctuary, "Fat Kitty City" on a twenty-acre, tree-studded natural environment in Northern California.


Due to the volume of cats that come through our clinic, we are always in need of monetary donations to help with the operating cost of our spay and neuter programs.

We are also expanding our clinic, building a new medical facility, so we will be able to safely handle the volume of cats and kittens that we provide medical care for. Our new clinic will be able to house our cats with medical needs and will provide an improved surgical center to perform procedures on the hundreds of cats and kittens that we treat every year.

In addition to our new clinic, we are in need of an expanded and new updated senior enclosure. Senior cats deserve a space of their own, in a calm and serene environment. This new enclosure will be located away from the busy main area of the sanctuary where the younger cats are.

Finally, FKC needs a new litter shed to house the huge number of bags and tubs of litter needed for all of our furry friends.

Canned cat food, kitten formula and litter are always in need and appreciated!
