Welcome to EndFIP.com, a website created by and for individuals who believe in, and want to actively support research into FCoV eradication and ending Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP), without the use of laboratory cats. It was created with the purpose of promoting knowledge amongst cat lovers, breeders and rescuers. It is a place where people can come to learn latest news on FIP prevention and most importantly progress in the goal of eradicating FCoV the virus that causes FIP. This website also exist to promote fundraising for much needed research.
The EndFIP® trademark was issued on October 2017 and is identified with fundraising efforts to support research programs, veterinary programs and campaigns to promote education and awareness of Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) and its underlying cause, feline coronavirus (FCoV).
EndFIP® efforts are focused on research into FCoV eradication which would end FIP, without the use of laboratory cats. Fundraising is essential to the pursuit of this endeavor. The EndFIP® trademark will become synonymous with this approach to this uncommon, but frequently fatal, condition.
Since obtaining the trademark, EndFIP® Leader Ms. Maria S. Bonino has work in building the EndFIP® brand identity to support research of this feline infectious disease and was diligently involved in the process of creating this website which is critical for long-term efforts on research and awareness strategies about this dreadful and often misunderstood disease and to help differentiate the EndFIP® brand from others.
Ms. Bonino is the founder and managing director of a wealth management firm based in the United States. She was educated both in Europe and South America and has work in the financial sector since 1999. On October 2013 she lost her beloved 14 month- old Russian Blue Luca to FIP and joined the ranks of countless cat owners who feel utterly lost and frustrated by the lack of knowledge and resources to combat this dreadful disease.
Luca is the reason and inspiration behind all Maria does to create awareness about FCoV and FIP and she extend her empathy and sympathy if you’ve come to this site because you have a sick cat at home and been given the dreaded diagnosis of FIP.
We need you to EndFIP®. From donations to the Luca Fund, to helping spread information and awareness, your contribution is welcome and appreciated. Find out how you can help us.
