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.

Looking for a forever home

“Pawsitive” Alternatives for Shelter Surrenders
WAIF now offers two resources for pet owners who find themselves in need of rehoming their pets on their own, outside a shelter environment. In addition to our “Home to Home” platform we’ve had in place for almost two years, we now offer “Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet”. We recognize that it can be heartbreaking to relinquish a pet. WAIF may have resources that will keep you and your pet together. However, if that is not an option, these resources may be able to help.  Please visit our waifanimals.org/community-pets for more information.

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.
