It's National Pet Day -- Meet Our Adoptable Pets of the Month!

It's National Pet Day! Here at Emerald City Pet Rescue, we give all of the rescue pets lots of snuggles every day, but today, we're trying hard to squeeze in just one more so that they know how truly special they are. We know that their forever homes are out there somewhere, just waiting to find them!

Every month, we choose an adoptable dog, cat, and critter to feature as Pets of the Month. This National Pet Day, we would like to highlight these cuties, and ask that you spread the word in your community -- every bit helps to assist us in finding the perfect forever home for these pets!

Meet our Dog(s) of the Month, bonded pair Oppie and Wiley! These two are true best friends who have playful and affectionate personalities. They both love attention and warm up quickly to just about everyone they meet. Oppie and Wiley walk beautifully on the leash and get along with other dogs and confident cats. Wiley plays fetch with herself and Oppie thinks he is a lap dog. They would thrive in a home with a fenced backyard and children who have big dog experience.

Our Cat of the Month is a very special kitty who is available as a forever-foster. What does that mean? Nickel is searching for a loving home where he can live out the rest of his days, but Emerald City Pet Rescue will continue to provide for his unique medical care. Nickel has a heart murmur, and takes medications and injections for hyperthyroidism, high blood pressure, and anemia. As an older senior, Nickel prefers peace and quiet rather than lots of activity; his favorite things include curling up on heated beds and being softly brushed. In the past, he has coexisted peacefully with respectful cats and small dogs. Due to his fragility, Nickel would do better in a home with no children.

Last but certainly not least, our Critter of the Month is Sapphire, a chinchilla! Sapphire is three years old and he weighs four pounds. He is a very social, curious, and adventurous chinchilla. He is very sweet, and quick to warm up to new people. He is quite comfortable and happy in his large habitat. He has not lived with other chinchillas before, but he could potentially be introduced to a resident chinchilla. Sapphire must be an indoor-only chinchilla.
