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!

January Providence House Senior Center Visit – Adoptable Dogs Cecily and Laverne Receive Lots of Love!

IMG_5243.jpgWow, it’s 2019 already? Where does the time go?

Here at Emerald City Pet Rescue, we’re very excited to help more pets find forever homes. We brought two rescues with us to our monthly visit to Providence House Senior Center in downtown Seattle today, Cecily, and Laverne! Cecily does not currently have a public adoption profile because unfortunately, she has cancer, but she is still looking for a “fospice” situation so that she can spend her final days in the comfort of a loving home. If you are interested in fostering Cecily, (all medical expenses are paid for by ECPR), please visit our website at http://www.emeraldcitypetrescue.org and fill out a foster survey.

Cecily very much enjoyed visiting with some new people! She is small and very sweet, happy to receive human attention, and content to hang out on laps.

IMG_5260.jpg Laverne is an older chihuahua at eleven, but she is just as wonderful and loving as Cecily. She enjoys getting her ears scratched, hanging out on the couch with you, and receiving treats. She would be a wonderful Netflix or Hulu binge partner! If you’re interested in adopting her, give us call at 206 557 4661.

We love opportunities to bring our wonderful rescue dogs out into the public to meet and interact with people. They bring so much joy to everyone who meets them!

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!

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!
