When The Market Commons opened its doors in September, we couldn’t have dreamed of all the love and puppy hugs that would be happening inside of our newest community gathering space. At The Commons it’s all about helping our neighbors make connections, whether it’s to community resources, people or puppies.
When Emerald City Pet Rescue had some puppies in need of cuddles,The Market Commons knew just who to pair them with: the residents at Heritage House, an assisted living center in Pike Place Market. Now every month when the puppies come out to play Heritage House residents are the first ones to sign up for their dose of puppy love.
In the first six months of operations, staff at The Market Commons has helped make 4,623 connections.
