Meet Stormy, our February Kitty of the Month!

S1.jpegSweet Stormy is hoping to find a home this month! Stormy is a thirteen-year-old gray domestic shorthair. She came to Emerald City Pet Rescue after her elderly owner was no longer able to care for her. This fluffy seventeen-pound girl is a bit shy when she first meets new people, but a bit of patience, a soft voice, and a gentle hand can quickly win her over. You know she’s given you her heart when she rubs her head on your hands, drools on you, and makes biscuits.

S3.jpegStormy enjoys the quiet life and she is hoping to find a relaxing home with plenty of couch and window lounging. She’s not up for the company of other cats, and she would do best in an adult-only home. Meds for arthritis help to keep her comfortable.

If you are looking for a quiet companion to binge Netflix with (or Hulu, or Amazon Prime, she’s not picky!) Stormy is definitely your girl. If you’re in the greater Seattle area and you’re interested in meeting this refined lady, please give Emerald City Pet Rescue a call at 206 557 4661

Axel Still Searches For a Forever Home

IMG_20181226_191348_563.jpgWho knows “sit”, “shake”, and “lay down” better than one-year-old German Shepherd, Axel? This boy is so smart that he could teach a course on basic commands, but he’s too busy chasing after toys in his foster home to do his homework. When he’s not improving his walking manners with his Halti or playing with dogs as energetic as he is, Axel is expanding his skill set with “watch me”, “leave it” and “gentle” because what he loves most is to make his favorite humans smile. Axel has it all – good looks, a big heart, and an entertaining personality. Although he is doing fabulous in his foster home, Axel still dreams of a forever home to call his own. If you have what it takes to keep up with this active boy, Axel may be the guy for you!

Axel needs a cat-free home but enjoys other size/energy appropriate dogs. Very dog-savvy older kids will be considered, but adults only for walks. Axel is fully vetted and microchipped.

Please call 206-557-4661 for more information on Axel!

Critter Connections!

Here at Emerald City Pet Rescue, we love our adoptable cats and dogs more than life itself! Awareness about the importance of rescue is spreading.

Every few months, we do an event here at the rescue called “Critter Connections” and we invite people to stop by so that they can meet and interact with our adoptable critters! (Other animals besides cats and dogs that are seeking forever homes.) Our adoptable critters include, but are not limited to, bunnies, guinea pigs, hamsters, chinchillas, and hedgehogs.

We had a great event last Saturday with our adoptable bunnies! Lots of people stopped by and met with our furry, hoppy, friends. Our knowledgeable staff was also on hand to answer any critter-related questions people may have had.

If you are interested in meeting our adoptable critters, or if you’re interested in learning more about their care, keep an eye on our social media for the next time we set up a Critter Connections event!

Can’t wait that long? Don’t forget to also keep an eye on our website for currently available critters at http://www.emeraldcitypetrescue.org
Feel free to give us a call at any time if you’re interested in meeting them! 206 557 4661

January Dog of the Month – Skylar!

skylar_PF1.jpgOur Pets of the Month are often animals that have been in our rescue for a long time, still searching for their forever home. Have you met the ADORABLE Mister Skylar? He’s a six-year-old, 17lb Yorkie mix with a BIG personality!

This energetic guy is super smart! He’s mastered tricks such as “sit”, “down”, and “high five” but he can’t wait for his new family to teach him even more! We’re not kidding, this guy LOVES to get his learn on! He’s all about one-on-one time with his favorite humans and snacking on stinky treats.

Skylar loves to run, or as we call it, “do zoomies” where he darts back and forth with his tongue out and a goofy grin on his silly face. Belly rubs are also one of his favorite things once he gets to know and trust you!

Skylar is looking for a home that can provide him with lots of physical and mental stimulation. He’s got no beef with cats, but he would do best as the only dog. Trust us, he’s got enough love, curiosity, and energy to keep his family entertained all by himself!

If this guy sounds like he may be just what you’re looking for, give us a call at 206 557 4661.

ECPR Visits Providence House for Paw-liday Party!

BL1.jpg For the past year and a half, Emerald City Pet Rescue pays a monthly visit to Providence Vincent House (Senior Center) near Pike Place Market. We take a few rescue pets with us each time that we feel will do well in that environment, and today, we brought Benji and Lizzie,  a bonded pair of adorable, adoptable senior dachshunds who are excited to find their forever home soon! They were a hit! They wore ADORABLE Holiday sweaters, they visited with all of the seniors, and they received lots of treats and snuggles. Our ambassador pups, Peaches, Lily, and Scout were also charmers as usual.

P5.jpg This year, Providence House decorated their event room for the Paw-lidays, and they took up a collection among their residents to provide us with donation money as well as some toys for the pups! We are so grateful for their support! Events like these are pure positivity for the seniors, and it brings us joy as well to be able to share the happiness of our wonderful rescue animals with others.

A special shout-out and Thank You goes out to Providence House for the kind and wonderful donations, you all really brightened our day! We look forward to continuing our monthly visits with you all in 2019!

Roller Derby Donates to ECPR!

Last Saturday, December 15th, 2018, the Tilted Thunder Rail Birds Roller Derby had a Bout in Monroe, Washington. One of our ECPR employees, Animal Caregiver Dom is on the derby team and arranged for a fundraiser to help our pets! People brought in beds, blankets, toys, and other items to help keep the pups healthy, warm and happy during this rainy winter season.

We were able to be there as well with a few ambassador pups to help represent the rescue and bring some smiles to the faces of the competitors as well as their friends and family.

We want to express our gratitude to everyone who donated, we very much appreciate all of the awesome donations, and we know the animals appreciate them, too!
