Ms. Sam Bates, Vice President and Adoptions Coordinator at Sunshine Corgi Rescue, shares the story of the organization with The Daily Corgi:
Fast forward twenty years. We now cover the entire state of Florida and average about 80 rescue dogs per year. Hard to believe there are so many. We take in any Corgi in need regardless of age or medical status. We strive to offer the best of care. All dogs are made current on vaccines, spayed/neutered, heartworm tested and microchipped. Many have had extensive surgeries or long term treatment prior to being placed in a new home.
Adopted dog Zen
I have been quite fortunate to share time with some wonderful dogs along the way. A few came to foster and never left. The youngsters are fun and challenging. The seniors are a treasure. The graying muzzles and cloudy eyes are testament to the long lives they have lived.
Adopted dog Ida
Some are products of broken homes, deaths in the family, illness of owner or allergies in the family. Others are surrendered because people are moving, they shed too much or they are destructive in the home. Many are rescued from shelters with no history as to their past life.
Adopted dog Chewie
We are thankful that the Corgi breed is generally resilient and adapts quickly to new environments. Most that possess behavior problems seem to come around quickly in a Corgi savvy home.
