February is Fix a cat month!
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
Hal is a dapper gentleman and on the small side for a male cat. Hal came to his person after a friend relocated. The new person has two small children and soon after Hal got settled, the family realized that Hal gets very anxious around little humans. Hal loves larger humans and he can be extremely sweet with older kids and adults. He doesn't do well around alpha male cats but he is good with female cats and dogs that are used to cats. Hal has never scratched the furniture and he always hits the litter box. Hal came to VIPP on 3/29/14
