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!

November Providence Vincent House Visit

P4.jpgHere at Emerald City Pet Rescue, we love being a part of our community and sharing our adoptable pets, as well as ambassador dogs, with our awesome Seattle friends and neighbors! Not only does it bring joy to the people who come to interact with rescue dogs, but it also gives the dogs a fun social outing and the opportunity to interact with new people in a new setting.

We visit Providence Vincent House Senior Center monthly. Lily and Peaches, to ECPR ambassador dogs, enjoy giving cuddles and kisses to every new person they meet!

Biscuit and Cecily, current ECPR rescues, also joined us today at Providence and they both thoroughly enjoyed the attention and snuggles! They are such sweet little souls and sometimes the extra attention can do so much to lift our animals’ spirits. We’re so grateful!

Special thanks to Providence House for having us as visitors on a monthly basis, it’s such a fun enriching experience for both humans and furry friends alike!

November Pets of the Month

We have many wonderful pets available for adoption here at Emerald City Pet Rescue! We have large, active dogs eager to find families to take them on lots of hikes and runs, we have small, senior dogs looking for a couch to snuggle up on, we have mischevious kittens, and older, refined cats for the more mellow household. We even have bunnies, and sometimes guinea pigs for the small pet enthusiasts!

Sometimes, some of these wonderful pets end up staying with us for a while as we work toward finding their families, and they need a little extra boost out here in the digital world. Each month, we pick a special dog, cat, and critter (if they are available for adoption at the time) to highlight as our Pets of the Month! If you are not in a position to adopt or foster, we encourage you to share these pets with your friends and family. You never know when the right match will find them!

Geoffrey.jpgMeet Geoffrey! Six-year-old Geoffrey, a Shephard/Lab mix,  is a ball-fetching, people-cuddling boy who loves treats so much he’ll even sit for them on command. Good with dogs and people who love tossing toys and outdoor adventures, Geoffrey would benefit from a family that likes to play as much as he does. If your idea of a perfect day is a romp in the park and a snuggle on the sofa, your perfect dog may be Geoffrey!

Geoffrey is good with other pups and dog-savvy older kids but needs a cat-free and critter-free home. Geoffrey is fully vetted and microchipped.

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


Tiki.jpgWe’re in love with Tiki! She’s an eight-year-old Siamese (if you please!) who will quickly steal your heart! One look into Tiki’s big blue eyes and you can tell she has seen many things in her life! This sweet and wise lady is very gentle and always up for human love. It’s not uncommon to see staff and volunteers ooing and ahhing over Tiki while she soaks up the attention. Tiki enjoys roaming around our cat room and seeks out bits of sunshine to warm her fur. If you’re looking for a couch companion to cuddle and adore, then Tiki may be your gal!

Tiki is microchipped and fully vetted.

Some of our felines are offsite or in foster, so if you are interested in meeting them, please call Emerald City Pet Rescue at 206-557-4661.

Begin Again with Finnegan!

D11-07.jpgAs I walked into the office this morning, I was greeted by a giant fluff-ball with a wet nose and a willing kiss. Meet “Mister Personality,” AKA Finnegan! This amazing seven-year-old Border Collie mix is big, fluffy, and EXTREMELY snuggly! He may or may not be the guy frequently chosen to hang out in the office with our staff on a daily basis… (Who are we kidding, he is always hanging out in the office because everyone loves him!)

In addition to his thick coat of super-soft fur, this guy is a genius when it comes to learning commands! He is always eager to show off his impeccable skills with “sit”, “down”, and “shake” and he’s ready and willing to learn more.

Finnegan will never turn down a brushing session. He loves outdoor adventures, and although he can be dog-selective, he has yet to meet a human that he doesn’t adore! He prefers to be the star of the show as the only pet in his new home, but this guy loves so much and so endlessly that he’s all you’ll ever need! If you’re looking for a true charmer who can’t wait to spend life faithfully at your side, Finnegan is definitely your go-to guy!

Give Emerald City Pet Rescue a call at 206-557-4661 to learn more about Finnegan!

This Husky Will Capture Your Heart!

A1 2.jpgOh my goodness, have you ever seen a more handsome smile in your life? This adorable grin belongs to Alaska, a nine-month-old Husky who is searching for a forever home in the Seattle area.

Fall is in full swing, cold weather is upon us, and Alaska doesn’t mind at all! Like most young Huskies, this guy has a lot of energy. He would be a fantastic running partner or hiking side-kick! There’s something about his enigmatic blue eyes that really make a person stop in their tracks. Intelligent and boisterous, he has mastered commands like ‘sit’ and ‘down’ and he’s very excited to learn more. We’re not kidding – he LOVES to learn! When he knows that he’s done a good job, he uses his voice to express how proud of himself he truly is. In fact, he loves to speak — we’re semi-convinced that he thinks he can carry on a full conversation with humans! Even if we can’t understand what every vocalization means, his face and eyes also speak volumes to help guide us.

What coA3 2.jpgmes to mind when someone says the words dream home? Alaska asks for a home with a fully-fenced yard so he can play LOTS of Fetch, a home with adults only (he loves people, but boy, does he have a lot of boisterous energy!), no cats, but size-and energy appropriate dogs are aye-okay with him. He asks for lots of play, lots of cuddles, and lots of brain games. In return, he will give you loyalty, love, and countless looks of pure adoration!

Are you interested in inviting Alaska to be a part of your family? Give Emerald City Pet Rescue a call at 206-557-4661.

A Happy Ending For Lacey

A few weeks ago, we had a scare. Sweet pup Lacey was lost in West Seattle. Lacey is a shy pup, so we knew that she wouldn’t simply stroll up to someone so she could be brought back to safety. This was going to be a challenge. With the heat being so intense and lots of cars zooming down busy West Seattle streets, we were worried. We teamed up together and put up flyers everywhere we could. We raced out to any section in which a tip was received that she was spotted. We split up into teams and diligently searched from morning until night and even brought in Three Retrievers Lost Pet Rescue  to help with their search dogs. The full story of Lacey’s miraculous rescue effort is documented here on our blog.

ECPR employees quickly made their way just ahead of where the search dogs had led us. They quietly sat down on the ground, hoped, and waited. Finally, Lacey emerged, but the employees knew not to try and snatch her in case she got startled and ran again. She finally mustered up the bravery to approach her doggy-daughter, Leda, whom the employees had with them, and then she approached her favorite kennel attendant and licked her arm. A slip lead was quickly put in place and Lacey was saved!

Lacey’s story wasn’t over. She was brought back to the rescue, examined by our Veterinary staff and thankfully she was all right, but the last leg of her journey, finding a forever family, was still ahead of her.

The impact of Lacey approaching her favorite kennel attendant despite her timid nature and overwhelmed state of mind stuck with a lot of us, especially the kennel attendant whom Lacey finally trusted enough to approach. She was fostering another dog at the time, but as the days began to pass, the bond she knew she shared with Lacey did not leave her mind or her heart.

Yesterday, we brought Lacey to the kennel attendant’s home where she will be staying for good, officially adopted by the person she allowed to save her! We couldn’t ask for a better forever home for this special girl. It is truly inspirational to see the bond between a dog and a human grow so strong that it leads to an unexpected adoption. Lacey was the one who chose her family, and they welcomed her with open arms. It’s moments like this that make us proud to do what we do. Congratulations to Lacey and her new family, we are so glad that you got your “Happily Ever After!”
