LOST AND FOUND

Corgis are truly special family members, and we hope that they are never separated from us.  Occasionally, though, a corgi becomes lost – bolting through an opened door, escaping from a car following an accident, or fleeing in fear during a thunderstorm or fireworks – in spite of our precautions.  Sometimes these corgis are found by caring people who contact Sunshine Corgi Rescue.

If you have lost or found a Pembroke or Cardigan Welsh corgi, please contact one of our board members listed on the Board of Directors page.  We will do our best to help reunite corgis with their families.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Make sure your corgi wears a collar with identification, including a county license and rabies tag.  Dogs adopted through Sunshine Corgi Rescue are given a tag with an identifying number.
  • Collars and tags can be lost or removed, so your corgi should also be microchipped.  Be certain that the microchip registration information is up to date.  When your corgi visits the vet, ask that the microchip be scanned;  sometimes chips can migrate.
  • If your corgi is lost, file a missing dog report with your county animal control and local humane society, and check back daily.
  • Have a current photo and detailed description of your corgi available.
  • Create and distribute fliers in your neighborhood and any areas where your dog may have been spotted.  Include a current photo and precise contact information.  Offer a reward, but don’t specify the amount.

 

SENIOR CORGIS
Make new friends, but keep the old;
Those are silver, these are gold.

~  Joseph Parry

For the last several years, many families have suffered from job losses and home foreclosures, and, sadly, their corgis have also been affected.  Changes in financial circumstances have forced some families to surrender their dogs who have lived with them for many years.  Other corgis have found themselves homeless when their owners have passed away or moved to nursing facilities.  Many of these dogs are seniors who  have never known another home.

Have you considered adopting a senior corgi?
Older corgis ROCK!

~  What you see is what you get – size, personality, grooming needs – no surprises!
~ Seniors are grateful and loving and often create an instant bond with their new families.
~ Seniors settle in quickly and know what it takes to get along with others – both canine and human – in their new family.
~ Older corgis enjoy easy living and a laid back lifestyle.  They are content with short outings and ask only to be your loved companion.

Please visit our Available Dogs page and take a look at the seniors.  Do you have room in your heart and home for one of these treasures?

Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be. . . . .
~  Robert Browning
