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.

Good Afternoon! Two weeks go by quickly! Just wanted to give you a small update. Gnocchi has really opened up to us and is quite talkative now. She spends all…


It is WAIF’s goal to ensure for our shelter animals a smooth and stress-free transition into their new adoptive homes. The 4th of July can be a very frightening time for our animal friends so during the week of June 27th through July 5th, WAIF will not be processing adoptions. WAIF will be open to take strays in, allow viewing of shelter animals, and to take adoption holds. Animals will be available for their forever homes on Wednesday, July 6th. Have a safe and happy 4th of July!

WAIF has homemade shelters available for feral and free-roaming cats to protect them from the harsh winter elements. A limited supply is on-hand and if you would like one, please call (360) 678-8901 to make arrangements for pick up.
