Welcome ...

We love our wonderful community!

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

"Dandelion", DSH orange tabby, DOB 2001

Adopt Me


DSH orange tabby 
DOB 2001 
Contact VIPP About Me

Dandelion is a golden girl with a golden coat. Dandy, as she is known to her former persons, showed up on their property back in 2001 pregnant with kittens. The folks who took her in discovered that she had belonged to the neighbors daughter but she could not care for the cat so Dandy stayed at the new home. Before her persons knew it Dandy had yet another litter and some of those from the first litter were having kittens and kittens were sprouting like Dandelions all over the place. VIPP was contacted and we helped spay and neuter everyone including Dandy who lived the rest of her life in the comfort and warmth of her new home. Years later, the house has been sold, one of her persons has passed away and the other one is moving across the country to be with family. Now Dandy has to find a new home. She is used to a quiet home so she would do best in that setting. Dandy came to VIPP on 3/22/14.
