We love our wonderful community!
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
- DSH orange and white polydactyl
- DOB 2004
Tess is a smart, loving, easy going polydactyl which means that she has extra toes on her two front paws. Tess is 10 years old and has been a part of her family since her adoption at 8 weeks old. A move has meant that Tess has to find a new home. Tess loves humans and she gets along with other pets, dogs included. When Tess is feeling like having some fun, she will play fetch with a small bag of beans or a tinfoil ball. Tess is pretty adaptable too. Once she gets used to new surroundings you will quickly find Tess on your lap begging for scratches behind her neck. Tess makes the most of her scratching post and has always been consistent with the litter box. Tess came to VIPP on 8/28/14.
