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
Vinnie Van (on hold)
- DLH black and white
- DOB around 2012
Vinnie was named by the person who found him because he looks like a particular breed of cat called a Turkish Van. These types of cats are long hair and they can have one blue eye and one amber eye. Vinnie sports both of these features. Vinnie Van was originally found near the equestrian park in mid December. Vinnie spent a month at the shelter before getting adopted. Unfortunately, the new owner discovered that Vinnie was afraid of a dog who likes cats. Vinnie's new peeps tried hard to help him adjust but he just couldn't adjust to living with a dog. Vinnie has a clean bill of health and he has had a recent dental. Vinnie does great when he is in his safe area with not dogs. He would likely do best in a quiet home. Vinnie came to VIPP on 12/14/15 and then again on 3/12/16.
