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. “

Yay for March, it’s Adopt A Rescued Guinea Pig Month!
Here at Emerald City Pet Rescue, while we love our cats and dogs, we don’t want people to forget that we rescue critters of all kinds! We have rabbits available for adoption, hamsters, gerbils, and yes, even guinea pigs!
Cha-Cha and Piglet have been with us for a few months now and they’re very excited about their future forever home! These two are a bonded pair of adorable chubby little boys who love to squeak, love to eat, and love to explore.
Cha-Cha and Piglet are looking for a mellower lifestyle without a lot of hustle, bustle and loud noises. These two are refined gentleman, they’d rather wiggle their noses at a spot o’ tea than go out to a party! Do you have room in your home and heart for these handsome fellas?
Joining our guinea pig pack are Mister and Dumbo, soon to be available for adoption! These two have the most hilarious facial expressions, always looking skeptical and irritated until you hold up food. Suddenly they come to life and wiggle over to you eagerly (it’s always great to know the key to winning a pet’s heart!) Just look at these goofy little boys, how can you not love them? Keep an eye out on our website at http://www.emeraldcitypetrescue.org for when these boys are ready for adoption!
It’s been an adventurous road, but here we all are, rolling toward the end of 2016 into a brand new year! It’s amazing to look back on how far Emerald City Pet Rescue has come since first opening our doors as a nonprofit in 2013. ECPR found its humble beginnings with our dedicated founder, Vivian Goldbloom, in a small room in the back of VCA West Seattle. We opened our first independent facility in SoDo on 1st Ave South and Hanford Street in the summer of 2014, and as each month goes by, we find ourselves fortunate enough to have the privilege of saving more pets.
We are very grateful for the positive support we have received from people all over the Seattle area. Orijen/Acana has recently begun providing us with an amazing monthly food donation to assist in keeping our cats’ bellies full and healthy. As we are now taking in more and more kitties, such a generous donation from a high-quality pet food brand has been so helpful! This brand is also sold at our retail store attached to our facility on 1st Ave South, and all proceeds go directly back into the rescue. If you’re looking for high-quality pet food and supplies at affordable prices, come in and check out our merchandise! Our retail employees are very knowledgeable regarding all of our products and will be happy to assist you in finding the right food and supplies for your pet’s individual needs.
Getting back to the kitties, we are thrilled about the merger and expansions Emerald City Pet Rescue is rolling out in 2017. Kitty Harbor, just off the West Seattle bridge and down the street from Luna Park Cafe, is currently closed for renovations, yet will re-open early next year as Emerald City Kitty Harbor, our very own cat-specific adoption location! Our facility on 1st Ave South in SoDo will then be our dog-specific adoption location. Emerald City Kitty Harbor will then be open 7 days a week, all year round! The kitties will even have an all-season “catio” — they are purrfectly excited!
In addition to Kitty Harbor, we recently opened Emerald Kitty Café at our Kitty Harbor location! Serving delicious Stumptown Coffee Roasters brews and espresso, we are currently open Saturdays and Sundays from 7AM until 4PM. Stop on by and warm up with a delicious latte while helping to support a noble cause. Soon, you will have the added bonus of being able to view adorable adoptable cats and kitties romping around behind viewing windows while sipping your coffee!
Emerald Kitty Café is also able to take any donations you may have, monetary or supplies, for our Emerald City Pet Rescue kitties.
With the addition of Emerald City Kitty Harbor plus another new facility in SoDo on South Idaho Street — which will house our very own clinic and provide more space for larger dogs as well as critters like bunnies, hamsters, chinchillas and more — 2017 is full of possibilities! We can’t wait to share more details with you as we continue to grow, allowing us to give more and more rescue pets a second chance to find the happy endings they truly deserve.
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!
