Every person working at this rescue has a passion for animals, and it’s wonderful to be surrounded daily by others who all share such an important common interest. We set out on this mission to teach young people about rescue, but Bethany and I learned a lot from this experience as well. We were delighted that these students chose to learn about humane education and we were so encouraged by their eagerness to learn and help. Together, as a community, we can continue to save animals in need and make a difference. These students made a difference for our animals, and they made a difference to the people of ECPR as well by reminding us that we are not alone in our passion and purpose.
If you are a school or a business who has the desire to learn and help, please contact us. We would love to continue to provide humane education to anyone willing to learn. The more we come together, the more animals we can save! At ECPR, we know that Love Can Save Lives. “
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!
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!
Yesterday (Thursday, January 15th) one of our amazing ECPR staff members went down to Seattle Animal Shelter to pick up two very special kitties and bring them into our rescue. After hearing their story, our hearts went out to them immediately and we just knew we had to step in and help.
Chloe is a five year old precious little girl, and Zorro is a 12 year old magnificent, refined Prince with diabetes who needs insulin shots daily, but is otherwise in good health. They have been together since Chloe was a small kitten and they are very dedicated to each other, such a wonderful bonded pair!
Chloe and Zorro loved their human very, very much. Unfortunately, she suffered from a long-time illness, but these two amazing little gems were an immense source of comfort for her, staying by her side day and night while she fought her disease up until the moment she passed on.
The amount of comfort and dedication that animals show their humans is always inspirational, but to know that these two dedicated themselves so fully to being a dependable source of comfort for their person while she struggled in that way shows what amazing, compassionate spirits these two beautiful souls have. We at ECPR are equally as dedicated to making sure they find a new forever home where they will be loved, cherished and appreciated for their exemplary courage, loyalty and compassion.
If you feel you are able and willing to open your heart and home to these very precious little felines and you have the desire to provide them with as much unconditional love as they show to others, please give us a call at 206 557 4661 so we can set up a meet and greet.
Kiddo, a precious senior male minpin, was unfortunately dumped at Carson Shelter due to his age. This sweetie needs a forever home to live out his last years in, please spread, share, and help this little guy find the parents he deserves! Check out an adorable video of his sad little eyes here, and more information about him here.
PUPDATE : Thanks to everyone’s quick responses and hard work, this precious pooch has been ADOPTED! WA-HOO!
