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
Snork aka Bubbles
- DLH Grey and white
- DOB 2005
Snork started out as “Bubbles” but became "Snork" around her 1st birthday. She was born in the late summer of 2005, and she came to her home in September of that year. As a kitten and young cat, she was somewhat of a loner. As time went by, she became more and more people-oriented, and now she can be quite affectionate with people with whom she's familiar and comfortable. She has been an indoor cat for the last four-plus years.
She grew up with other cats and has spent the past four years with a small dog. She's more affectionate with the dog than he is with her and she has even tried to comfort him several times when he was hurt.
When she gets adopted, she's likely to find a place to hide for a few days, but if she is placed in a calm environment and treated with kindness, she will bond and become affectionate with her new person. She loves to sit with people and purr while watching movies. Snork came to VIPP on 2/5/14.
