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

Contact VIPP About Me

Sophie has been in a foster home for three months so far. She is an affectionate and playful kitty who purrs and talks. The first week, she was rather shy and hid in the living room. By the second week she was jumping on my lap for pets as I sat at the computer or on the couch. By the third week she was playing with string as I pulled it along the floor. During the fourth week she started to encourage me to come play in the living room with her and her new favorite toy; a peacock feather. She finds me, gets my attention, and then runs back towards the living room. If I do not follow, she repeats that until I come in and play with her or she gives up. She especially likes it when I pull the feather under some paper or around the couch. She clearly likes being with people because she will follow me around the house. She is friendly with my visitors. She is very quiet at night. Sophie uses her litter box well and is ok left alone for long days or even overnight. She has no problem being an indoor cat. Sophie would be best in a quiet home with no other pets though she may be ok with dogs as she used to live with a Rottweiler. I understand that she is not fond of other cats but have not seen her interact with them. She has had some stresses in her life that caused her to pull out her hair and now it just seems to be a habit. She is a great companion and hopefully will find her permanent home soon.
