Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving, and who deserves contributions more than wonderful rescue pets?
Emerald City Pet Rescue, although still a new organization officially launched in 2013, is growing fast! Our motto is “Love Can Save Lives” and we strive to give each animal we rescue and rehome all the love and care they deserve, and more.
For this Giving Tuesday, we want to introduce you to one of the many pups near and dear to our heart that has come upon us, a sweet-as-pie Pitbull named Sweetie Pie!
Sweetie Pie was found as a stray, wandering the streets. She was thin, covered in scars, and we suspected she had been the mother to a litter of puppies in her recent past.
Despite the vague story that Sweetie Pie’s health could tell us, never have we met a dog more loving and kind. Her eyes are filled with hope and wisdom beyond her years, and when she raises her head and looks up at you with her tail softly wagging, you can’t help but reach down and give her a little hug.
At Emerald City Pet Rescue, the health of our rescue pets is our top priority. Sweetie Pie came with challenges that weren’t visible to the naked eye upon being taken in by us, but that didn’t scare us any more than it scared her! Sweetie Pie needed two ACL surgeries to repair her knees, and if that wasn’t difficult enough, she then developed tumors which turned out to be cancerous and had to withstand chemotherapy! What amazed us beyond belief was that no amount of pain or struggle dampened her spirits for a single moment. The moment she’d return from a surgery or a vet visit, even when she was supposed to be on bedrest all she wanted to do was play. We can’t fathom where she found her energy and optimism! Sweetie Pie was a rare, precious gem that brightened each day she was here at the rescue with us.
We are so happy to conclude that after all the hardships that Sweetie Pie endured, she finally found the happy ending she deserved a hundred times over. A wonderful couple adopted her and now she spends her days playing with giant sticks (HER FAVORITE!) and running along the beach with the wind in her face. It fills our hearts with joy knowing that we were able help her along on her long, difficult journey to happiness, and we wouldn’t have been able to help her without amazing, generous support from the surrounding community.
