Last Saturday, December 3, 2016, we here at ECPR held our second annual winter adoption event! Special thanks to Mudbay Uptown in Queen Anne for hosting, they have a WONDERFUL adoption center in their store and their staff is so kind and accommodating!
A few ECPR employees, a handful of our amazing volunteers, and a group of dogs ventured into the chilly unknown on this hopeful day. A supportive volunteer supplied us with plenty of coffee to lift our spirits and our energy, and as we readied some kennels for the dogs, we were sure to give them lots of pep talks! “This is an important day for you! Remember to smile, stick your tongue out a lot, and be your best selves! If you meet the perfect family for you, be sure to let them, and us, know!” The positive energy proved to be contagious and soon tails began to wag and little snouts began to smile.
At 11AM, prospective adopters began to venture toward the adoption center wondering if the perfect addition to their family was just a kennel away. The pups kept true to their word and charmed everyone they met with kisses, cuddles, wagging tails and cute little toothy grins. They spent more time in warm human arms than they did in their kennels, and by the end of the day, lots of people were entranced by their amazing sweetness!
As our facility is not a walk-through shelter (our pets spend their days in a playroom rather than in kennels) these off-site adoption events are such a fun and positive way to introduce them to prospective adopters who got to spend that special one-on-one time meeting them up close and seeing if there is a potential bond in their future. We were so thankful for the opportunity to watch our dogs fall in love with so many people, and to watch so many people falling in love with them! We are confident that in no time at all, the pups that attended this adoption event will find their perfect forever homes in no time at all.
Special thanks to Mudbay Uptown for providing both the space, and the help. They are amazing!
Special thanks also to our wonderful ECPR VOLUNTEERS! So many of you came to offer your support and assistance, we couldn’t have done it without you!
Lastly, special thanks to Erin Lynch whose wonderful photography skills really captured the spirits of our pets so well! Her pictures are below, and she is available to do photo sessions with you and your pet for the holidays!
