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.

4th of July can be a very stressful time for companion animals and those at our adoption facilities. To help ensure a smooth transition from shelter to home, WAIF will temporarily halt adoptions of our dogs and cats from June 29th to July 8th. However, WAIF adoption facilities will be open normal business hours Wed-Sun 12pm-4pm for animal viewing. Interested adopters can place a hold on their dog or cat and adopt when adoptions resume on July 8th. Our shelter will be closed on July 4th in observance of the holiday.

Special Announcement! On Saturday, July 27th,Miyoko Schinner, founder and CEO of Miyoko’s, will be conducting a vegan cheese making demonstration with proceeds benefiting WAIF animals and community programs. Learn more and purchase tickets here!
