The Wreath Sale - Friday, Sat & Sun, Nov 28,29 & 30!
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

When we got Rollo, we wondered if VIPP got the cat that was described in his relinquishment paperwork. First of all, his former owners named him "Killer." This cat is so mellow that we opted for a name change right away. Second, the cat had been sequestered to the outdoors because of litter box issues. Since Rollo has been at VIPP, he has hit the litter box like a champ. Third, he was described as a feral cat that had been hanging around as a found cat. It seems that Rollo had been in the owner's care for several years. The former owners had dogs and perhaps Rollo was afraid of them which might explain his "feral" behavior. Rollo is one special guy who needs a great home for his retirement years. Rollo came to VIPP on 4/29/14.
