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!
