ECPR Does Outreach at Market Commons Neighborhood Center

IMG_5465We love doing outreach events here at ECPR, it provides us with a wonderful opportunity to go out into our Seattle community and let them know about the amazing, adoptable pets we have available. It gives our dogs an opportunity to get out of the rescue, meet new people, and have a great socialization experience, and hanging out with dogs puts a smile on EVERYONE’S face!

Today was our first day doing a visit at Market Commons Neighborhood Center in Pike Place Market. We had four ambassador dogs with us, and also two sweet adoptable pups, Yella, and Harry! Both are sweet, cuddly, wonderful lap dogs who can’t wait to find a family to play with and curl up on the couch with. They were so happy to receive extra-special attention and lots of petting today! They were both curious and gracious in the new environment, they were eager and happy to meet new people, and we were very proud of how at east and friendly they were. They are wonderful dogs who will make excellent forever friends!

IMG_5463In addition to “Cuddle Visits” ECPR also offers Humane Education classes that range from after-school programs with very young children to extra-curricular High School programs.

If you would like a visit from ECPR at your school or Community Center, please contact our Education and Outreach Specialist at bethany@emeraldcitypetrescue.org

De-Stress With Dogs Event

IMG_3789Finals is a busy time in a college student’s life, and ECPR was so happy to be able to help bring them some cuddly stress-relief by arranging for some of our wonderful, adoptable pooches to take part in a “De-Stress With Dogs” event today, hosted by the College of Built Environments at Gould Hall at UW.
With us today was adoptable dog EUNICE, along with soon-to-be-adoptable pups BENJAMIN, PEANUT, and DUKE. Also along for the fun were staff dogs Athena, Peaches, Lily, and Delilah – and a good time was had by all! Every single dog soaked up the love and attention, and we are confident that both dogs and humans benefited greatly from the cuddle-time they all got to spend together. It warmed our hearts that our dogs could bring joy to others, and in turn, the love the dogs received helped a lot to lift their spirits and remind them of how wonderful they truly are despite hard times they have had in their pasts.
It means a lot to us when we have opportunities to take part in our community and we appreciate the privilege of being able to bring some of our wonderful rescue dogs out into the world to help make the day for college students just a little bit brighter.
At Emerald City Pet Rescue, we have a wonderful Education and Outreach Specialist who is always up for the challenge of arranging all sorts of opportunities, everything from reaching out to schools and offering Humane Education lessons, to senior center visits, to de-stress events, and more. Please reach out to us anytime if you would like to plan an event with rescue dogs in attendance by emailing bethany@emeraldcitypetrescue.org 
Also, don’t forget to check out our website to view all of our adoptable pets! Eunice, pictured below relaxing on a blanket is currently up for adoption, and Benjamin (in the adorable hat) Duke (next to Benjamin), and Peanut (who couldn’t stay still long enough for a photo, but he is a 3lb terrier mix, cute-as-a-button!) will all be adoptable soon!

Summer Starbucks Pet Fairs Begin!

Wahoo, today we kicked off the first of a group of summer events, the Starbucks Pet Fair! Emerald City Pet Rescue will be at Starbucks Plaza in Sodo (1st and Lander) twice per month throughout the summer on alternating Thursdays and Fridays. Joining us each time are a different assortment of awesome affiliates, and as long as the weather is good (today’s was beautiful!) there is nothing better than stopping by with your pet, grabbing them a treat, learning about animal rescues in the area, and more!

Today, we brought adoptable dog Merry Frost with us. She got to meet a lot of new people, she enjoyed a puppuchino, and more!

This 10 year old Chihuahua mix girl is looking forward to starting the search for her forever home in the Seattle area. Merry Frost is incredibly soft and gentle, with a graceful, delicate way about her that helps to show off her impeccable manners. She is also a fan of the mellow life, preferring cuddles and quiet time to a lot of unnecessary ruckus and adventure. When she isn’t enjoying a welcome round of butt scratches (one of her favorites) or some delicious treats, Miss Merry is busy charming the vet staff with her lovely personality and sweet, soulful eyes.
Merry can be vocal and should go to a house rather than an apartment or condo, and she would prefer a home with respectful children ages 12 years old and older. Because of this sweet girl’s low energy and mellow disposition, Merry would make a wonderful companion for a first time dog owner, or anyone seeking a snuggly lap dog to call their own! This little lady may be a bit gray in the face but don’t let Miss Merry’s age fool you – on the contrary, she is in great health and has many years ahead to share with a very lucky person (or two, or three)!
Interested in giving Merry a forever home? Give us a call at 206 557 4661!
