Helping Whidbey Island Pets and Their People

Whidbey Animals’ Improvement Foundation (WAIF) is a non-profit organization which was formed in 1990 in an effort to help Whidbey Island’s homeless companion animals. WAIF is dedicated to providing food, shelter, veterinary care, and nurturing to displaced pets until loving homes can be found for them.

NOTICE: Due to the steep increase of Delta variant Covid cases, we are conducting adoptions by appointment only at all adoption facilities. If you see an animal that you are interested in, please call our front desk at (360) 678-8901 for further information.
