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

Sophy and Tippy Made The News!

ECPR-5.jpgECPR adoptable bonded pair Sophy and Tippy have been with us for over a year. At 9 and 10 respectively, they are really hoping that 2018 is the year they’re going to find their forever home. They came to us through no fault of their own, their owner had cancer.

Q13Fox along with Pawsitive Alliance’s #WhyNotMePets campaign teams up to feature adoptable pets in the Seattle area, and last weekend it was Sophy and Tippy’s turn to shine! Check out their news feature HERE! If you’re looking for a bonded pair of adorable dogs who love walks and treats, Sophy and Tippy might be your perfect match!

 

Help George Find His Smile!

_DSC9919.JPGGeorge is a super sweet 8-year-old pug/beagle mix. We adore him, but we’ve noticed that George seems sad. Although we are doing everything we can to give him lots of love, we believe that he would feel much more comfortable in a home environment with less commotion. He’s a good boy who doesn’t ask for much, a warm place to lay and some petting. We understand that not everyone can adopt, but even a foster home would do George lots of good. Check out the link below to learn about our foster program!
If you cannot foster, please help spread the word any way you can so we can help George find his smile again

Sophy The Star Proudly Shows Off Her Jester Costume!

20180118_124637Today was Comedy Show day in the ECPR playroom, and adoptable pup Sophy earned the coveted role of Playroom Jester!

Even though Sophy and her bonded sister Tippy came to the rescue from a sad situation, their own had cancer, and they’ve now been with us for quite a while, they still find reasons to smile and enjoy life. We’re pretty sure it’s because they know that the perfect adoptive family for them is out there somewhere just waiting to find them. Perhaps they’ll meet at a comedy show??

If you’re looking for two goofy dogs who will hang on your lap when you’re relaxed, alert you to any danger that might be outside with a few barks, and prance alongside you on short daily walks, Sophy and Tippy are your gals!
Give us a call at 206 557 4661 if you’d like to attend a comedy show in which they are the stars (aka if you’d like to meet them!)

Lucy Gets Her TV Debut!

IMG_4468.jpg

Age/Gender/Size: 3 Yrs./Spayed Female/60 Lbs.
Likes: Puzzle toys, Sudoku
Dislikes: Uggs

“How many dogs do you know that are working on their PhD? Well, my name is Lucy, so now you know one! “Sit”, “Down”, and “Roll Over” were fun, but now that I’ve mastered them I’m ready for even more! They tell me that I am a very good girl and very smart too, and even without my doctorate, I am sure to impress you with my big brain. But I’m no bookworm, either – I love to run and romp and fetch and tug, so if you are an active person too, we could really have a lot of fun together! When it comes to people, I vibrate with happiness because I love being close to them (and the hot dog treats in their hands). Hiking pal or study buddy, I can be both to you – plus a total lover, all included! I may not have a medical degree (yet), but I can tell the cure for what ails you is ME! Love, Dr. Lucy (soon-to-be) PhD!”

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

LUCY was just a Superstar on the News, check out her Q13Fox Debut!

On a personal note, I’ve had the privilege of hanging out with Lucy a number of times although I’m not a kennel attendant. I can attest to not only Lucy’s high intelligence but also her eagerness to learn. Lucy does present a few challenges, she is dog-reactive, but the staff works with her on her training regularly and she has made vast improvements. I have no doubt that with a family that is willing to continue her training, she will absolutely continue to grow into her full potential as the amazingly wonderful companion that she is, and truly wants to be.

Give us a call at 206 557 4661 to learn more about Lucy!

 

Special Thanks to Animal Medical Center of Seattle!

This has been a special Holiday season here at Emerald City Pet Rescue! We are so fortunate that we have made it through another year of being able to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome many wonderful pets. Some we have rescued from high-kill shelters out of state, and others we have rescued locally. Some pets have needed extra medical or behavioral help and we feel so lucky that we have had the resources to be able to help them. This year has brought shy and/or fearful dogs out of their shells in their new forever homes, and it has seen three dogs who needed wheelchairs slowly regaining the use of their legs through patience, love, and physical therapy.

2017-12-18 11.06.57_resizedToday we had a visit from Jina who stopped over from Animal Medical Center of Seattle. They did their own “Santa Paws” event where people could come in and get photos of Santa with their pets, and they chose to donate all of the proceeds to ECPR to help our wonderful rescues!

We feel so fortunate that they chose to gift us with a donation. So many people in our Seattle community care about these animals, and we couldn’t ask for a better “Holiday gift” than that!

Thank you so much, Jina and Animal Medical Center, your generosity has touched us, and people like you make it possible for us to keep doing what we do!

Lark and Jigglypuff’s TV Debut

ECPR’s sweet bonded pair, adoptable pups Lark and Jigglypuff, had their TV debut last weekend! They were featured on Q13 Fox in conjunction with Pet Connection Magazine and Pawsitive Alliance.

They say, “There have been many love affairs throughout history – Antony and Cleopatra, Napoleon and Josephine, Peanut Butter and Jelly… and now the greatest of them all, Lark and Jigglypuff! That’s US! We are bonded in every way and love doing everything together, from eating to sleeping to romping to sleeping to cuddling to sleeping some more. We are both terribly shy at first, but with a patient approach and an available lap, you will watch us bloom into world-champion snugglers who love to share the love (with you)! We are quite quiet and sweet, and would love a mellow home to compliment our equally mellow energy, but small dogs our size are more than welcome (as long as they don’t hog all the treats, blankets, or affection). Let’s make this love one for the history books!”

Check out Lark and Jigglypuff ON THE NEWS, and if you think they might be the perfect addition to your family, give us a call at 206 557 4661
