With so many puppies everywhere (have you noticed a theme in this weeks blogs? Haha!) our amazing kennel staff has devised a clever way to keep all of the dogs a bit more on track. In the playroom, there is now a fenced divider so the puppies have their space to romp around and be puppies, and the adult dogs can have a bit of a calmer, slightly less exuberant environment. This is definitely the dog-version of how we have been handling our abundance of kittens, where they get some time in the playroom and then later on the adults get their own time as well. Here at ECPR, we strive to keep everyone as healthy and happy as possible and no matter how creative we have to get in order to ensure the quality of life of these animals while they are in our care, we are happy to do it!
Along with so many intakes, we have had an abundant number of adoptions so far this week and we couldn’t be happier about it! Making the choice to welcome a rescue animal into your home and to invite them to be a part of your family is a gift that your new pet will appreciate for the rest of his or her long, happy life. Some of these sweet faces have been through unfortunate times, and to be loved and saved by a person or by a group of people is truly the pot of gold at the end of their rainbow.
Our wonderful pittie rescue, Sweetie Pie, is back in the building after her leg surgery! She is resting comfortably on her bed in reception being loved on all by every single staff member here (we all adore her so much!) and we are confident she will heal up like a champ and be back to her playful self in no time. She is still looking for her forever family, and anyone who does decide to adopt that wonderful dog will be getting a best friend for life who will brighten up their day with her always-positive spirit and her wonderful sense of adventure. If you’re interested in making this dog-safe, kid-safe little angel a part of your family, give us a call at 206 557 4661 to set up a meet and greet!
We are all pretty worn out (pets and staff alike!) from all of the kitten and puppy play, so we’re all looking forward to sinking into our pillows and getting a good night’s sleep, only to get up in the morning and do it all over again because none of us would have it any other way. We love what we do, and we appreciate all of the generosity and support ECPR has received since we have existed. To be able to come together for such a wonderful purpose and see so many animals getting their well-deserved happily-ever-after’s is the gift that keeps on giving. That’s why our motto is Love can save lives.
