Emerald City Pet Rescue’s Cats Have a New Facility!

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.

Chewie and Mommas are Besties!

 

CM1.jpg

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!

cm2Chewey 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!

If you might have the perfect home for one of these two special babies, give us a call at 206 557 4661!

Mischevious Thelma Wants a Home!

thelma1Meet Thelma, a VERY SPECIAL dog who came to us from SOI dogs all the way from Thailand!

Thelma is a ridiculous, goofy, ball of sillyness. She is an explorer and loves to sniff around in the woods. She has a fair amount of energy and she is always smiling. She is an accomplished climber and she is smart enough to open doors of varying styles. She has prey drive towards cats, but also does well with small dogs. She is incredibly playful with other dogs, but sometimes her excitement gets the best of her- she comes on very strong. She has alright leash walking skills and she is a fast learner. The leadership program is really starting to show results with her, she is learning to sit for pets instead of head butting you. She would be a good dog for kids with her happy, playful attitude.

thelma2Thelma is truly wonderful she but does require a very experienced new family due to her high intelligence and her past as a savvy street dog.

If you are in the Seattle area and you think you may have the confidence and willingness to make this wonderful girl a part of your family, give us a call at 206 557 4661

Meet Hefner the Bunny!

Here at Emerald City Pet Rescue, we have more than just cats and dogs for adoption. We’d love to highlight a very special little guy with us right now, Mister Hefner the bunny!

Hefner is a one-year-old English Spot. He would absolutely love a quiet home where he can explore the wonders of the inside to his heart’s content, and take his sweet time getting to know his people and surroundings.

Hefner was surrendered to Emerald City Pet Rescue along with his buddy, Holly, but they are not required to be adopted together. (However, they are quite a cute duo!).

Previous Rabbit Ownership Experience Required in order to take this little guy home with you, as rabbits require unique nutrition and care.

Hefner is fully vetted, neutered, microchipped, and available for adoption in the Seattle area. Call Emerald City Pet Rescue at 206-557-4661 to meet Hefner!

DailyECPR : We Love Lincoln!

Lincoln2.jpgWe are pleased to introduce you to….. Lincoln!

Five-Year-Old Lincoln came all the way from Soi Dogs in Thailand to join the ECPR Family! Cuddly, friendly Lincoln has quickly become a staff favorite. Lincoln is a sweet, well-socialized fella, who makes the funniest noises when he’s trying to communicate with you.

Lincoln is very treat-motivated and learns quickly. He is very good at communicating with other dogs, though he can be impatient with them from time to time so Lincoln would prefer a home with either senior or mellow dogs (or, ideally, the only dog in the home so as to have the spotlight all to himself!) Lincoln is looking for an active family that will take him on daily hikes and adventures where he can show off his amazing walking skills! Lincoln needs a cat-free home, and because he can be vocal, apartments and condos are not for him, either. Because of his past, Lincoln would do best in a home with a fenced yard to prevent him from escaping, he needs to be 100% leashed.

LincolnLincoln would prefer a home with people 12 years old and older. A lot of training will be required for Lincoln, so experienced adopters who can provide him with these opportunities are ideal for him. Are you the right match for this international super-dog? Give us a call at 206 557 4661

Lincoln is fully vetted, neutered, and microchipped.

DailyECPR : Iggie is ig-tastic!

Iggie.jpg

Meet Mr. Iggie, the ig-tastic chi-pom!!!

This 11-year-old Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix has made the trek from California in search for his forever digs in the Seattle area. Iggie weighs about 4 pounds; yes, 4 pounds! He is an adorable little man with an easy-going demeanor and a sweet personality. He adores people and enjoys happily trotting around for his afternoon walk. When he’s not sleeping (which is most of the time), this cuddle bug is happily lazing on the lap of anyone who wants some Iggie love! Due to his tiny size and medical considerations (including cataracts), Iggie would do best in a home with no boisterous young children or energetic dogs who may not respect his space.

Iggie is currently in a foster home being a lap-tastic little mini. He is fully vetted, neutered and microchipped.

If you live in the Seattle area and would like to meet this cutie-pie, please give us a call at 206 557 4661
