Do you love the Corgi breed of dogs? Unbelievably, animal shelters and rescues have purebred dogs that have been abandoned or removed from their owners. How do you rescue a Corgi?
- Skill level:
- Moderately Challenging
Things you need
- Dog Crate
- Dog Kennel (Optional)
- Fenced Yard (preferable)
- Grooming supplies
Verify with your subdivision, township, city, or landlord that you can own a dog before committing to rescue a Corgi. Some subdivisions, cities, or townships have restrictions on the number of pets that each family can keep on their property.
Purchase a dog crate, leash, collar, dog dishes, dog food, and grooming supplies. If your Corgi has suffered neglect, you may need to bathe or even shave the hair off and let it grow back.
Locate a veterinarian who has a heart for caring for rescue dogs and offers discounts for services. Typically, rescue dogs need emergency office visits and medications to treat them for illness, undernourishment, and parasites.
Give area veterinarians your name and phone number and ask them to contact you if they hear of a Corgi in need of rescue.
Contact all of the kill shelters in your state and let them know that you will rescue any Corgi. You will need to complete a pet adoption application, which requires three personal references, veterinarian reference, neuter contract, and an adoption fee.
Contact Corgi breeders in your state and give them your name and phone number. Let them know that you will rescue any Corgi including a breeder that needs a new home, and any rejected, or imperfect puppy.
Breeders may require a pet adoption application as well. You can find a list of Corgi breeders at http://www.akc.org/breeds/pembroke_welsh_corgi/index.cfm>
Contact Corgi rescues to let them know that you will rescue any Corgi in your area. Rescues usually require an application as well. Here are some Corgi rescues to contact.
