Our Mission

Flip's Island Rescue & Sanctuary aka FIRS is a Washington State 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Corporation. We are a foster based rescue that is 100% funded through adoption fees and donations.

Our mission at FIRS is to provide the highest level of compassion for the animals entrusted in our care; to measurably reduce companion animals' overpopulation and to take a leadership role in promoting humane values and education for the benefit of animals.
