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

Myschief is an active cat who loves to play. He never gets tired of chasing his little furry rattling mouse, and will “fetch” it right back and drop it at your feet! Other great toys are things-on-a-string and laser mice. His favorite safe foods are anything fishy or meaty in a cat food tin, doesn't have to be grain free, just wet. (Oh yes, he will also try to eat your cheese, sometimes right off the pizza slice). He's not a lap cat, but will frequently settle near you and purr, and if he really loves you, he'll hug you around the neck and nuzzle your nose. His previous owner, who had two Pugs, told me Myschief would race around the house with them, sometimes being chased, sometimes chasing back!
Sadly, Myschief can be intimidated by other cats so he needs to be an only cat. He's fine with people old enough to play with him, but doesn't really understand the limits of babies and children up to about age 4 or 5. Otherwise, he's outgoing and will make friends with your visitors and their dogs. He's had a hard time lately and will appreciate a family who will cherish him for his free spirit. Myschief came to VIPP on 12/17/14.
