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

Contact VIPP About Me

Tiny Montgomery has a big story but we don't know all the details. We do know that he was found under a crawl space of a home in Tacoma when he was only 4 weeks old. There seemed to be no mother nearby. The person who found this tiny white kitten knows our VIPP volunteer, Janet and called her for advice. Janet brought the tiny kitten to VIPP and he is currently in a foster home. Tiny will need to be an indoor only cat with his white fur. White kitties are prone to skin cancer. Also, preliminary test show that Tiny Montgomery may have an immunodeficiency and he could be susceptible to illness and infection if he were outdoors with other critters. VIPP will retest him when he is older to see if he indeed has this disease. This boy has the most beautiful blue eyes that will melt your heart. He is playful and curious and totally fun. Tiny Montgomery came to VIPP on 5/28/15.
