Important Note

Piglet is best friends with Cha Cha. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Say hello (twice) to Cha Cha and Piglet, two of our new rescue arrivals! This bonded pair of 3 year old boys are hoping for a forever home for the holidays and beyond. Cha Cha and Piglet found their way to Emerald City Pet Rescue after their owner could no longer care for them, though they don’t ask for much – plenty of yummy treats and a quiet home to keep warm in would be just fine. After all of the changes they have been through, these boys look to each other for comfort and to keep the loneliness away. Handsome but timid, these boys can be easily startled by sudden movement and loud noises, so adventure seekers look elsewhere – these boys love the mellow life! Because of their shyness, Cha Cha and Hazel are looking for a home with no small children, but older, respectful kids would be fine with them. While their modeling skills leave something to be desired (they’re a little camera shy), their cuteness is best experienced in person where you can see their fuzzy, funny little personalities truly shine!

Cha Cha and Piglet are fully vetted, neutered, and microchipped. Please call 206-557-4661 for more information on Cha Cha and Piglet!

About Emerald City Pet Rescue - Seattle

About Our Rescue Group...

Emerald City Pet Rescue exists to rescue abused, neglected and homeless animals from the streets and shelters, primarily those in the Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties in California, and place them into loving and forever homes. Emerald City Pet Rescue is a 100% non-profit organization run entirely by dedicated staff & volunteers who offer their time and resources to house, train, rehabilitate, transport and care for these animals.

We are a non-profit rescue group, founded by Vivian Goldbloom.

Emerald City Pet Rescue is dedicated to the following goals:

* Rescuing stray animals from kill shelters, primarily dogs and puppies of the Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties in California, who have not been adopted and are scheduled to be euthanized.
* Emerald City Pet Rescue takes the animals who have been in the shelters the longest and will die unless rescued.
* Securing a no-kill facility where rescued pets can be safely sheltered without the threat of euthanization until we find adoptive families for them.
* Providing the best medical care possible to neglected, abused and injured animals.
* Rehabilitating hard-to-adopt animals and finding them loving homes.
* Promoting the importance of spaying and neutering pets in order to drastically reduce the number of unwanted animals on the street.
* We are proud to announce that we sponsor low cost spay and neuter events.
* Educating children and adults on responsible pet guardianship.


Our primary focus is to find safe, loving homes for unwanted, neglected and/or abused animals. We rescue dogs from kill shelters who could be loving pets, but are about to be euthanized due to overcrowding, illness or disease. Emerald City Pet Rescue also helps whenever possible animals who are in need everywhere. The homeless, the abandoned, the unwanted.

Most recently, Emerald City Pet Rescue is proud to announce that we are also saving dogs from other countries, where there are no animal shelters or help offered. We bring them to the United States, into our rescue group and offer help to the rescuers in these countries. We also work with other rescue groups we like to refer to as our “Sister Rescues” to help save even more lives.

Our Adoption Process...

Emerald City Pet Rescue takes particular care in placing our animals, pure and mixed breed alike. Our screening process includes a meet and greet, reference checks, and a visit to the potential owner’s home to ensure the home and family is compatible with the pet’s needs and our requirements. We feel compatibility in personality, activity level, and skill set are crucial aspects of the adoption process. These qualities help us ensure we are giving each pet and potential adopter the best chance at a harmonious, loving, and fulfilling forever home. Often, we will accept multiple inquiries for a particular pet in order to ensure placing them in the right home. We will always consider each potential adopter in the order in which they have contacted us, yet there are occasions when we will recommend an alternate match for a potential adopter based on the criteria mentioned above.

We ask adoptive owners to sign a detailed contract obligating them to give the animal a loving home. Emerald City Pet Rescue has a lifetime policy of always taking our animals back, no matter what the circumstance.

All Emerald City Pet Rescue adopted pets come fully vetted until healthy, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, fecal clear, treated for any parasites, worms, or fleas, groomed, and microchipped. Your adoption of an Emerald City Pet Rescue pet also includes a new leash, collar/harness, a free initial vet exam at one of our participating vets, and a 30-day obligation-free trial of pet insurance through Trupanion.

Our adoption fees range from $100-$500.
