Emerald City Pet Rescue - Animal Supply Store Online Now!
Our animals are rescues mostly from California, and also abroad who have been either abandoned and or turned in to high kill shelters. The ages span from puppies to 10 plus years of age, and in some cases the animals are in need of significant vetting, in order for them to return to full health. One thing for sure, these pets give back much love to their new owners. Oh so loving they are because they know they have received the biggest gift of all, the gift of compassion, and a second chance from their new owners. So if you are considering a new pet we encourage you to look into adopting our wonderful rescue dogs from Emerald City Pet Rescue.
All the best,

All Emerald City Pet Rescue Adopted pets come fully vetted until healthy, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, fecal clear, treated for any parasites, worms, and fleas, groomed, and microchipped.
Emerald City Pet Rescue, founded by Vivian Goldbloom, exists to rescue abused, neglected and homeless animals from streets and high kill shelters and place them into loving, forever homes. Sometimes these animals can come from other countries and sometimes from right around the corner, that are homeless, abandoned, and the unwanted. Emerald City Pet Rescue is run by dedicated staff and volunteers who offer their time and resources to house, train, rehabilitate, transport and care for these animals.
Emerald City Pet Rescue is dedicated to the following goals:
Rescuing stray animals from high kill animal shelters who 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. We operate a no-kill facility where rescued pets can be safely sheltered without the threat of euthanization until we find what we feel is the right adoptive family for each pet.
Providing the best medical care possible to our animals and to
rehabilitate hard-to-adopt animals to help them increase their chances to find loving homes This includes spay or neuter, all inoculations, microchips, and anything else they need to get healthy and happy. The microchips ensure the best possible chance to get a pet back if they are ever lost and registration of their microchip is a requirement in our contract.
Promoting the importance of spaying and neutering pets in order to drastically reduce the number of unwanted animals on the street.
What we do.
Our primary focus is finding safe, loving homes for unwanted, neglected and/or abused animals. We rescue dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens from high kill shelters who could be loving pets, but are about to be put to sleep due to overcrowding, illness or disease. We also work with other rescue groups, we like to refer to as our “Sister Rescues” to help save more lives as well.
Emerald City Pet Rescue takes particular care in placing our animals, pure and mixed breed alike. Our screening process includes meet and greets, reference checks, and a visit to the potential owner’s home to ensure the home and family are compatible with the pet’s needs and our requirements. We feel that compatibility in personality, activity level, and skill set are crucial aspects of the adoption process. These qualities help us ensure that 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 just the right home. We will always consider each potential adopter in the order in which they have contacted us but there are occasions where we will recommend an alternate match for a potential adopter based on the criteria mentioned above.
We ask adoptive owners to sign a detailed six page contract obliging 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.
How we do it
Emerald City Pet Rescue is run by staff and volunteers who are dedicated to raising funds, fostering and caring for the animals and participating in adoption events until homes are found for these amazing pets.
Emerald City Pet Rescue also relies heavily on our foster program which introduces animals into a family environment and gives them the love they crave.
The majority of the animals that come to Emerald City Pet Rescue are from high kill shelters and are in immediate danger of being euthanized. Although we wish we could place each and every animal that is wandering the streets or belongs to an owner that feels forced to give it up, it is not within our power to take them all in. However, there are ways that you, the individual who cares, can help…
Found an animal
Have you found an animal wandering the streets without tags or identification and don’t know what to do next? Emerald City Pet Rescue is required by law to take the animal to a local animal shelter where it can have the chance to be reunited with its owner. However, here are our suggestions on how to take steps on your own to reunite it with its’ owner. Taking the animal to a local veterinarian to scan to verify if the animal is microchipped with any possible owner information, this is usually offered at any veterinary facility at no charge to you. Found pet signage without too much information included about the pet, to insure that the actual owner is the one responding, is also very helpful, as well as checking on-line websites where lost pets may be posted.
Re-homing an animal
Although we wish we could help every animal looking for a new home, we are many times unable to take in animals from the those that are trying to find a home for an animal in need. Emerald City Pet Rescue takes in the majority of our animals from the high kill shelters when the animals are hours and even moments away from being euthanized. When we are able, Emerald City Pet Rescue will do our very best in helping all dogs in need, the homeless, the abandoned, the unwanted. However, we hope you will take some of our suggestions on how to find a new owner for a homeless pet.
Giving up an animal
Every day, over 40% of phone calls and e-mails that we receive are from owners who are giving up their animals. We are not always able to take an animal from its owner unless a monetary donation is made to Emerald City Pet Rescue in order to cover expenses until a new home is found, which can often be several months (this is not always the case, all cases and doggies in need come from different circumstances, if we are able to help we will). If you would like more information on how to re-home your animal, here are some suggestions.

Special Need Dogs
Pirate is a 6 year old Chihuahua mix who came to us from California. Pirate has some anxiety issues that can cause him to come off as aggressive at times. He does not enjoy being picked up or having treats, bones or food removed from him. Pirate will need an experienced foster or adoptive home who has the time to help Pirate unlearn some past behaviors and introduce the correct ones.
Manny is a 3 year old Pekinese mix. Manny is a very loving dog who will form a bond with one or two people in his life, and then become protective of them. Because of his over protectiveness Manny can come across as aggressive at times. Manny seems to prefer women and children to men. He has a very strong dislike for bikes, skateboards and anything else with wheels. Manny will need an experienced adoptive or foster home, who is fully aware and willing to work with Manny’s issues. He is not the dog for a first time adopter.
Charlie is a 10 year old Shih Tzu mix. He has limited vision and requires and adopter who is willing to work with him as his vision continues to decline.
Chester was adopted and returned to us due to aggression issues with other dogs. He has been in intense training for the last 2 months and is doing wonderfully. Chester is a great dog with his people, and would make a great companion for the right person. His behavior towards other dogs has improved, however he should be the only dog in the house. Chester does not get along with cats. All of his paperwork from his training will come with him, as well as the option for the new owners to go down to the training facility for a refresher course.
Minnie Me is a very sweet little girl, who was rescued from a high kill shelter in California. She gets along great with other dogs and all people. Minnie is around 2 years old. She would make an excellent addition to any family, as she is a very loving dog. Minnie does have a slight medical condition and will need to be on daily medication for the rest of her life.

Sid was rescued from a high kill shelter in California on his last day. He was very scared when he arrived to us, but has slowly come around. He needs stability, patience and love. Sid is terrified of men and boys, and would do best in a female only household. He also doesn't like other male dogs. Some female dogs are OK, but it would be in his best interest to be the only dog.
