Cinnamon Needs Your Help!

Here at Emerald City Pet Rescue, we are so thankful to have the opportunity to give our pups an alternative to staying in kennels. We have a wonderful playroom where they get to spend their days socializing with staff, volunteers, and other dogs and many of our adoptable animals thrive in this environment. However, sometimes we have a dog who feels a bit overwhelmed and overstimulated by the busy, social days and really needs a home environment in order to thrive, grow, learn to trust, and prepare to find a forever home of their very own. This is where our foster program comes in!

Cinnamon has had some experiences in her past that have caused her to be reactive and fearful in certain situations, so she would benefit most from an experienced adopter who can give her the guidance and training she needs to build her confidence. After all that she has been through, Cinnamon hopes to find someone to give her a chance and support her through her progress and setbacks, because she truly wants to trust and love humans.

Cinnamon is a great communicator and always lets you know when she’s feeling happy and brave, or when she feels insecure and frightened, and in time you will see her great capacity for love and affection! When Cinnamon trusts you, she lets her guard down and reveals her cuddly, snuggly, sweet side. Cinnamon also gets along with other animals, so a foster home with cats and other dogs are no problem at all, especially if you can keep the treats and cuddles coming her way!

ECPR Visits Providence Supportive Housing

Here at Emerald City Pet Rescue, we are very passionate about helping our animals grow, find trust and love, and find a forever home of their very own. We are equally as passionate about reaching out into the community and helping to connect people with pets so that everyone can experience the calming and therapeutic benefits that animals can bring to our lives.

Today, we had the opportunity to bring some lovely dogs to Providence Vincent House in Seattle. We met many wonderful people, and while they had the opportunity to learn about our rescue, our dogs had the opportunity to bring them joy. Communication can go beyond words, and it was wonderful to see these dogs opening up to new people, offering them warmth and love, and spreading happiness everywhere they walked with wagging tales, soft eyes and kissing tongues.

We were happy to be able to provide this opportunity for both the dogs, and for the residence at Providence Vincent House. We will be returning to their residence monthly and we look forward to being able to provide more opportunities to spread doggy-love into our community.

Special thanks to Emily Alder-Storm, a Social Work Intern from SU for Providence Vincent House, and Jennifer Bachhuber, Providence Vincent House’s program director, for facilitating this wonderful opportunity and allowing us to share our dogs with the residents!

Thank you for having us, Providence Vincent House, and thank you for giving our rescue dogs such a warm, wonderful welcome!

Our Dogs

The wonderful adoptable dogs that joined us today from the rescue were Kona, Pluto, and Hurley.

Kona came to us very fearful, having been picked on by other dogs and cats in his previous residence. He has come a long way toward trusting others, and he did wonderful at today’s visit to Providence Vincent House! He can’t wait to find a lap all his own.

Pluto is as sweet as they come! He is a hairless terrier, and he would be the perfect dog for someone that suffers from allergies but must have a pup to cuddle with. He loves laps, and his skin is so soft touch – like suade!

Hurley is still young and he has such a wonderful, curious nature. He can be a bit shy at first, but it doesn’t take him long to warm up. Once you’re in his cool-book, he never wants to leave your side!

All are currently available for adoption through Emerald City Pet Rescue. Click on their names to view their profiles and learn more information about these sweet, amazing pups!

Muttley Crew Makes Our Dogs Look Fabulous!

This past Sunday, February 19, Muttley Crew, a grooming salon located in West Seattle, was kind enough to invite some of our ECPR adoptable dogs down to their salon for a complementary grooming!

We want to express our gratitude and appreciation for such a wonderful act of kindness, our adoptable pups look absolutely FANTASTIC!

Meet our adoptable friend Capone! (Or as I like to call him, “Al Capone!”)

Capone has a lot of personality, and sometimes his camera shyness causes him to look disgruntled in photos but on Sunday, he was all smiles as he showed off his fluffy fur, fresh from a bath and trim! He knows he looks amazing!

Capone hopes this glamorous photo will entice you to take him home with you, he is currently available for adoption and he can’t wait to snuggle up in a forever home!

Check out how amazingly dapper Lizzie and Benji look after a fresh bath and grooming! These two are an adorable pair of bonded long-haired doxies and they will be available for adoption through Emerald City Pet Rescue soon. Keep an eye out on our website for more information on Lizzie and Benji coming soon!

Mister Elliot the cocker spaniel also gets an honorable mention because he looks absolutely charming – so much so, in fact, that one of our very own employees is going to welcome him into her home on a forever basis! YAY ELLIOT!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Muttley Crew, in addition to grooming services, also offers daycare and boarding. Thank you so much to the wonderful staff / groomers for the generous gift you gave us, and our pups! If you are looking for a place that can make your pup look his best, Muttley Crew is the place to go!

adopt-me-9

Meet Luke, one of our new rescue arrivals! This one year old rabbit is jumping with excitement to start the search for his forever home in the Seattle area. Luke found his way to our rescue after a good samaritan took him after being abandoned outside, but she could no longer care for him. During his time there, Luke did beautifully with the older children, cat, and dog in the home, so Luke is a great roommate to have! Already a kennel favorite, Luke is about as handsome as they get, with a sparkling personality to match. Described as a very friendly, social bunny, Luke loves getting affectionate attention from people and hopping around indoors where he can explore his surroundings safely. If you have previous bunny ownership experience and are looking for a lovely new addition to your critter clan, look no further than Luke!

Luke is fully vetted, neutered, and microchipped. Please call 206-557-4661 for more information on Luke!

Update : DRAGON HAS BEEN ADOPTED!!!! GO DRAGON, GO!

adopt-me Meet Dragon! This handsome three-year-old Holland Lop boy is excited to start the search for his forever home in the Seattle area. Dragon is not only as cute as they come in the looks department – he is also one of the friendliest, most social bunnies we have ever met!

While Dragon’s previous family could no longer keep him due to allergies, they could not say better things about his personality. In addition to being potty trained, Dragon is described as being an outgoing, affectionate, playful fellow who loves attention from humans! The only things Dragon loves more than toys and being cuddled are yummy treats like kale, parsley, and cilantro, which makes him easy to please. Fans of fluffy, friendly bunnies will surely fall in love with Dragon just like we have!

Dragon is fully vetted, neutered and microchipped. Please call 206-557-4661 for more information on Dragon!

ECPR’s Wonderful, Adoptable Kitties!

We are just so excited about our merge with Kitty Harbor, and we can’t wait to open Emerald City Kitty Harbor!

While the Kitty Harbor facility is being renovated, we have some WONDERFUL kitties here at our main facility on 1st and Hanford in Sodo waiting to find loving homes!

 

b1How cute is Blackberry??! Blackberry spent the first 13 years of her life in a warm home, though found her way to our rescue when her owner could no longer look after her. This lively, active girl loves to play with toys when she’s not stretching out near a window and enjoying the sunshine! Blackberry used to live with other cats. yet would prefer to be the only cat in her future forever home. She loves to receive affectionate attention without any other competition. While she starts out shy, it isn’t long before she’ll be leaning into your hand while you stroke her fuzzy cheeks – but you’ll know you’ve sealed the deal with her when she rolls onto her back to offer her belly up for rubs! A girl of few words, Blackberry is extremely sweet and prefers the mellow life in her golden years, so a home with people over 16 years old is on her wish list. In exchange for a quiet, loving, forever home, Blackberry will give you companionship and devotion for years to come…!

h Little Harley is such a charmer! At 6 months old, Harley is barely out of babyhood and is excited to get the search underway for his new forever home. This vet staff favorite gets along well with other cats and dogs, so he would do well with other furry friends in the home. Harley loves to play and loves attention so a person who loves to play hard or has plenty of time to spare is ideal for him. Although he is affectionate, Harley isn’t the cuddliest little guy in the world and is likely to wiggle free so that he can get started on his next adventure! Fans of spunky, friendly little guys who come dressed in their own formal wear (he is a “tuxedo” breed after all) are sure to be big fans of Harley!

Meet Keva and Sativa, two of our new rescue arrivals! Their devoted mama has fallen on hard times and is trying to secure a forever home for her two girls. This bonded pair of 7 year-olds has been through quite a lot of change in the last several months and lean on each other for comfort. What Keva and Sativa want more than anything is safety and stability so they can begin their new lives together. Shy and scared at first meeting, these kitties would prefer a quiet home without any dogs or young children, but welcome adults who can show them the patience they need to come out of their shells. Once they are comfortable with you, these girls love receiving affection, attention, and being brushed while sitting on your lap! Emerald City Pet Rescue is a firm believer in second chances, and we can’t think of a pair more deserving than Keva and Sativa!

mMeet Maddie, one of our new rescue arrivals! This sweet, beautiful little domestic short hair girl is looking forward to finding her forever home in the Seattle area. Maddie is a classic wallflower, just like the pretty girl at school waiting on the sidelines for you to ask her to dance. Once you take a chance on her with a smooth, patient, gentle approach, you will find her apprehension melting away to reveal a sweet, affectionate side. Not one for playing so much as snuggling, Maddie does fine with other respectful cats, but would prefer a home with kids 12 and up because she isn’t such a fan of excitement or adventure. If a quiet, easygoing, and lovable is what you’re looking for all wrapped up in a petite package that loves to purr, look no further than Maddie!

mi Meet Minou! This tiny little 3-month-old girl is looking for her forever home in the Seattle area. Petite and sweet Minou may be small in stature but she is big in heart, with lots of love to share for just the right person (or people)! While a lot of kittens are courageous, risk-taking little daredevils, Minou is very mature for her age and is a bit more cautious with new people and situations. One of Minou’s favorite things to do is to play with other kittens, which is a great way of helping to build Minou’s confidence (and also to help burn that kitten energy). Minou would love most to find a home where she won’t be lonely and by herself too much, so another kitty companion or someone who is home frequently would be ideal for her (or why not both?). If shy, sweet and beautiful are what you’re seeking in a kitten, Miss Minou may be your match!

ALL of our adoptable kitties are fully vetted, spayed / neutered, and microchipped. If you’d like to meet any of these fuzzy felines, give us a call at 206 557 4661!

Emerald City Pet Rescue’s Cats Have a New Facility!

It’s been an adventurous road, but here we all are, rolling toward the end of 2016 into a brand new year! It’s amazing to look back on how far Emerald City Pet Rescue has come since first opening our doors as a nonprofit in 2013. ECPR found its humble beginnings with our dedicated founder, Vivian Goldbloom, in a small room in the back of VCA West Seattle. We opened our first independent facility in SoDo on 1st Ave South and Hanford Street in the summer of 2014, and as each month goes by, we find ourselves fortunate enough to have the privilege of saving more pets.

 

We are very grateful for the positive support we have received from people all over the Seattle area. Orijen/Acana has recently begun providing us with an amazing monthly food donation to assist in keeping our cats’ bellies full and healthy. As we are now taking in more and more kitties, such a generous donation from a high-quality pet food brand has been so helpful! This brand is also sold at our retail store attached to our facility on 1st Ave South, and all proceeds go directly back into the rescue. If you’re looking for high-quality pet food and supplies at affordable prices, come in and check out our merchandise! Our retail employees are very knowledgeable regarding all of our products and will be happy to assist you in finding the right food and supplies for your pet’s individual needs.

 

Getting back to the kitties, we are thrilled about the merger and expansions Emerald City Pet Rescue is rolling out in 2017. Kitty Harbor, just off the West Seattle bridge and down the street from Luna Park Cafe, is currently closed for renovations, yet will re-open early next year as Emerald City Kitty Harbor, our very own cat-specific adoption location! Our facility on 1st Ave South in SoDo will then be our dog-specific adoption location. Emerald City Kitty Harbor will then be open 7 days a week, all year round! The kitties will even have an all-season “catio” — they are purrfectly excited!

In addition to Kitty Harbor, we recently opened Emerald Kitty Café at our Kitty Harbor location! Serving delicious Stumptown Coffee Roasters brews and espresso, we are currently open Saturdays and Sundays from 7AM until 4PM. Stop on by and warm up with a delicious latte while helping to support a noble cause. Soon, you will have the added bonus of being able to view adorable adoptable cats and kitties romping around behind viewing windows while sipping your coffee!

Emerald Kitty Café is also able to take any donations you may have, monetary or supplies, for our Emerald City Pet Rescue kitties.

With the addition of Emerald City Kitty Harbor plus another new facility in SoDo on South Idaho Street — which will house our very own clinic and provide more space for larger dogs as well as critters like bunnies, hamsters, chinchillas and more — 2017 is full of possibilities! We can’t wait to share more details with you as we continue to grow, allowing us to give more and more rescue pets a second chance to find the happy endings they truly deserve.
