Relinquishment Policies

If you need to talk to VIPP about relinquishing a cat, please call (206) 389-1085 or email For dogs- call same number or email

It is VIPP’s policy to accept Vashon/Maury dogs, subject to available resources. VIPP is not obligated to accept a dog that has been reported as being aggressive.
Any dog with an unknown history should be evaluated for temperament by a trained individual, who has been approved by the Board of Directors (BOD), prior to intake into the VIPP system.

Boarding for up to two weeks can be provided during evaluation if necessary. If the animal is deemed not likely to be trainable or, a danger to the community, the dog will be returned to the owner. If the owner refuses to take the dog back, or if the owner has abandoned or was abusive to the dog, VIPP will find an appropriate placement.

If the animal is deemed trainable, VIPP will use resources available in the form of volunteers and training programs to help make the dog adoptable.

If a dog is found to be dangerous due to aggression after relinquished to VIPP, the dog will be immediately removed from the foster home and professionally kenneled. At this time VIPP dog volunteers will have 15 days to assess the situation and make a recommendation to the BOD.

VIPP would like to have a copy of the medical records on the relinquished animal and a description of the animals personality and history. Our volunteers need this information to help find the best possible home. If your cat was raised around dogs or children, VIPP wants to know that. If your animal has trouble getting along with other animals and wants to be an only "child", we need that information too. Complete this form when relinquishing a dog

Anything that will help us place the animal in the right home. If you are able to make a donation to support your relinquished animal's care - VIPP appreciates that very much.
