adoption information

If you are looking for a new family member or animal companion, ECPR has several animals looking for a new forever home. Our adoption process helps to ensure that the environment and situation are best suited for both the animal and the adopter. Have a look at our adoption process, and the animals currently looking for a safe, loving new home. 

3 things to know ABOUT ADOPTION 

1. Adoption is always contingent upon interviews and site visits, to ensure that the environment is suitable for the animal. 

2. After adoption, ECPR will schedule regular check ins to ensure that the animal and the situation continue to be the best for both parties. 

3. In the event that the adopter is no longer able to fully care for the animal, for any reason, ECPR reserves the right to reclaim to animal (as opposed to the animal being re-homed, re-dopted, or relinquished to any other rescue organization).

Ragan D. Gantt Emerald City Pet Rescue Scholarship

Emerald City Pet Rescue is pleased to announce Simona Nelson as the recipient of the 2024 Ragan D. Gantt Emerald City Pet Rescue Scholarship. Simona, a 2024 graduate of Vashon High School, has shown outstanding dedication to animal welfare and aims to become a Veterinary Technician.

Simona's heartfelt essay resonated deeply with our mission. In her own words:

"Organizations that strive to change the world of animal care, like your organization, are responsible for taking the proper steps to close the gap between animals and people. The gaps caused by people themselves. Having a peaceful sanctuary for horses and farm animals helps raise the voices of animals in need and spreads awareness of the magnitude of the issues these animals face. Because of organizations like Emerald City and Haven these animals have another shot at life. Being the voice for those who cannot speak for themselves is what I hope to be a part of, lowering abuse statistics and helping others feel the love that pets I’ve encountered have helped me feel. In helping these animals, they in turn can help us feel less alone."

We extend our congratulations to Simona for her achievements and passion for making a positive impact in the field of animal advocacy. She embodies the values and spirit we strive to promote at Emerald City Pet Rescue.

We would also like to express our appreciation to all the students who applied for the scholarship. Your dedication to animal welfare and thoughtful contributions have made a lasting impression on us.

Looking ahead, we encourage Vashon Island High School graduating seniors to stay updated on future scholarship opportunities. We will be reopening our scholarship program in early 2025, providing another chance for students to demonstrate their commitment to animal welfare and compete for this esteemed award.

Once again, congratulations to Simona Nelson, our 2024 scholarship recipient. We are incredibly proud of them and eagerly anticipate the positive impact they will continue to make in the realm of animal rights and rescue.

At Emerald City Pet Rescue, we remain dedicated to empowering the next generation of compassionate advocates. Together, we can work towards creating a brighter future for animals in need.
