Vashon Island Pet Protectors was founded in Vashon, CA in May of 2019 by five individuals with a single common bond - a love of animals. We had a desire to help those animals that found themselves lost, abandoned, neglected or mistreated and through no fault of their own were without a family and a loving home. Vashon Island Pet Protectors was founded with the premise and intent of assisting animals in need of re-homing assistance. We found that the other breed specific rescues at the time were selective about the animals they would/could help and many in need did not receive needed assistance. Instead, they languished in shelters; possibly meeting an untimely and unjust demise there. We were especially concerned about those discarded by their owners and placed in shelters due to age, health, behavioral or other problems that made them less likely to be adopted through an all breed shelter environment.
We adopted Chloe when she was 8 years old, about 4 years ago. GLWR made sure we got the perfect fit for our family. She is now 12 and honestly the best dog I have ever had (don't tell my first Weim)! They were honest, efficient, and really care about the dogs. Keep up the great work!
