Individuals interested in rescuing corgis can visit the website of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America, Inc., or Adoptapet.com for listings of corgi rescue organizations. Several rescue organizations are located across the country for Pembroke Welsh and other corgis, and individuals can also do a local search for organizations.
Another good resource is Corgi breeders who sometimes have rescues as a result of owners returning pets they no longer want. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of America encourages people to adopt a corgi dog instead of buying one. Typically, a corgi rescue organization requires prospective owners to submit an adoption application for review. Corgi rescues are tasked with finding the best human match for dogs in need of forever homes. Corgis in foster homes are occasionally adopted by foster caregivers, but most are living in temporary foster care awaiting a new family.
Most rescue corgi dogs and puppies are good dogs who are just as lovable and well-mannered as dogs available for purchase. Corgis are natural herders and enjoy physical activities such as agility training, and experts recommend obedience training. Corgis are full of energy and tend to bark if they don't get enough exercise, and are known for being strong-willed dogs. Families with young children aged 8 and above are good matches for rescue corgis.
