Welcome ...

1 yr anniversary- back in 1985!

Vashon Island Pet Protectors, established in 1984, works each day to improve the quality of life for domestic pets on Vashon Island. This year we are celebrating 30 years of service to the community. Affectionately known Island wide as "VIPP,” Vashon Island Pet Protectors is a no-kill and non-profit 501c3 animal rescue organization run by compassionate and dedicated volunteers. Our primary objective is to make sure there are no homeless pets on the Island. We accomplish this by running an efficient lost and found operation and find new homes for relinquished dogs and cats. In an effort to prepare for Island wide emergencies, we have started a new micro-chipping program. All animals that we adopt out are micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and are current on their vaccinations. click to continue

"Skates", Brown Tabby, 6 year old

Adopt Me


Brown Tabby 
6 year old 
Contact VIPP About Me

Skates is a feisty 6 year old Tabby. Her original name was Snake when she came to VIPP and indeed, she can act like a snake in cat's clothing at times. Still, she can also be very cuddly and kind when she is in the mood. Skates earned her new name because playful nature. She moves around her digs at the shelter like she in on two pair of roller skates. She would make an independent but fun and entertaining companion.
