The “Cutest BFFs in the Playroom” award goes to….
ECPR’s Chewey and Mommas! They love to hang out with each other, they think all of these other dogs with their four working legs and lack of wheels are just plain odd. They are in their own little wheelie club together where they joyfully roll around, or, more often, joyfully relax together while they wait to find their forever homes!
Chewey is a handsome 4-year old Chihuahua mix. After receiving surgery for a ruptured disc, Chewey has been using a wheelchair, but he doesn’t let that slow him down for a second as he makes the rounds visiting his favorite people! And c’mon, who doesn’t love a guy with his own set of wheels? He is charismatic, friendly, and very sweet but he does not get along so well with cats.
Meet Mommas! 4-year old Mommas is a fantastic dog that loves people and other dogs. Mommas has lived with children – and loved them, too! Mommas is looking for a loving home that can offer her stability and support as she adjusts to her new life on wheels. As with most dogs that lose their ability to use their back end, this is not slowing her down! Mommas still has a happy-go-lucky attitude and she is always eager for new adventures. Mommas will need an adopter who is willing and able to work with her special needs. Mommas likes cats too!

Meet Thelma, a VERY SPECIAL dog who came to us from SOI dogs all the way from Thailand!
Thelma is a ridiculous, goofy, ball of sillyness. She is an explorer and loves to sniff around in the woods. She has a fair amount of energy and she is always smiling. She is an accomplished climber and she is smart enough to open doors of varying styles. She has prey drive towards cats, but also does well with small dogs. She is incredibly playful with other dogs, but sometimes her excitement gets the best of her- she comes on very strong. She has alright leash walking skills and she is a fast learner. The leadership program is really starting to show results with her, she is learning to sit for pets instead of head butting you. She would be a good dog for kids with her happy, playful attitude.
Thelma is truly wonderful she but does require a very experienced new family due to her high intelligence and her past as a savvy street dog.
If you are in the Seattle area and you think you may have the confidence and willingness to make this wonderful girl a part of your family, give us a call at 206 557 4661
Here at Emerald City Pet Rescue, we have more than just cats and dogs for adoption. We’d love to highlight a very special little guy with us right now, Mister Hefner the bunny!
Hefner is a one-year-old English Spot. He would absolutely love a quiet home where he can explore the wonders of the inside to his heart’s content, and take his sweet time getting to know his people and surroundings.
Hefner was surrendered to Emerald City Pet Rescue along with his buddy, Holly, but they are not required to be adopted together. (However, they are quite a cute duo!).
Previous Rabbit Ownership Experience Required in order to take this little guy home with you, as rabbits require unique nutrition and care.
Hefner is fully vetted, neutered, microchipped, and available for adoption in the Seattle area. Call Emerald City Pet Rescue at 206-557-4661 to meet Hefner!
Meet Mr. Iggie, the ig-tastic chi-pom!!!
This 11-year-old Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix has made the trek from California in search for his forever digs in the Seattle area. Iggie weighs about 4 pounds; yes, 4 pounds! He is an adorable little man with an easy-going demeanor and a sweet personality. He adores people and enjoys happily trotting around for his afternoon walk. When he’s not sleeping (which is most of the time), this cuddle bug is happily lazing on the lap of anyone who wants some Iggie love! Due to his tiny size and medical considerations (including cataracts), Iggie would do best in a home with no boisterous young children or energetic dogs who may not respect his space.
Iggie is currently in a foster home being a lap-tastic little mini. He is fully vetted, neutered and microchipped.
If you live in the Seattle area and would like to meet this cutie-pie, please give us a call at 206 557 4661
Here at Emerald City Pet Rescue, we love it when children reach out to us and want to help and/or learn all about animal rescue! We firmly believe that having compassion for animals at a young age and learning about the responsibilities involved with caring for them gives them helps them grow into wonderful pet owners.
Today we had a visit from some students at the Meridian School in Wallingford. These wonderful kids got to learn about what we do as a rescue; save animals, help them medically, socialize and train them with positive reinforcement, and help them find loving, forever homes. They also had the opportunity to demonstrate their awesome animal-handling skills with Lily, Scout, and Athena. We love that Meridian is compassionate to animals and that they gave their students the opportunity to interact and learn about them and what it takes to care properly for a pet as part of their curriculum. We always welcome opportunities to educate, as we firmly believe that the best way to save an animal from losing a home is to make sure that pet parents have the knowledge and resources they need to cope with any challenges having a pet can bring.
Little Skye got all cozy in her blanket during her home-check and loved up to her new family right away! Such a tiny sweet bundle of joy, you would have no idea at all that she’s older than a decade! She still has the heart and soul, and even the curiosity and energy of a young pup. She quickly became a staff-favorite during her time in the ECPR playroom and she will be missed, but she deserves all the snuggles and loves the world can give her. Congratulations, Skye!
