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.

2024 dog licenses are now on sale on our website here. Licenses purchased now are good through December 31, 2024. WAIF only sells dog licenses to dog owners residing in unincorporated areas of Whidbey Island.

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.
