Welcome ...

Thank you and Happy Holidays!

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

"Bruce", shepherd mix, 1 1/2 years

Adopt Me


shepherd mix 
1 1/2 years 
Contact VIPP About Me

Meet Bruce…a year and a half old shepherd mix with a heart of gold. After a rough start in life, this boy is aching for that special someone to call his own. A forever home where he never gets left behind or casually passed on to a shelter because his playful pup energy wasn’t convenient anymore. Someone who is as dedicated to him as he will be to them. Bruce loves people and is gregarious and friendly when given the opportunity to meet someone in a way that makes him comfortable - but he does still have some baggage from his past and will need a home that is committed to making sure he is not put in uncomfortable situations. Above all, Bruce is a true gem of a dog. Maybe not the easiest dog you will ever have, but absolutely the best.The kind of dog you will be telling stories about and hold in your heart forever.

Because we would like this dear one to be the center of attention, no kids please but he absolutely ADORES playing with other dogs and would love a poochie playmate. For more information please contact VIPP at dogs@vipp.org or call 206-389-1085 and press 1 for dogs then 2 for adoptions.
