Corgi Connection of Kansas is an ALL volunteer rescue that helps homeless or abandoned Pembroke or Cardigan Welsh Corgis. We take in Corgis that need us and adopt them out to wonderful new homes. Though our focus is centered in the state of Kansas we will assist in Corgi rescue throughout the Midwest.
We do not have a shelter facility. All dogs are housed and cared for in our network of foster homes. This allows us to get to know the dogs personality and provides insight into the proper placement for the dog in its new forever home. We carefully review applications and place the dogs in approved, responsible, permanent homes.
Each dog receives the best medical care. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered, brought current on all vaccinations, heart-worm tested, groomed, and started on flea and heart-worm prevention.
Corgi Connection has had some terrific adoptions over the past few months to include placements in Wisconsin, Texas, Massachusetts and Missouri, not to mention several right here in Kansas! I am so proud of the dogs that have been adopted as they are bringing such joy to the families they are now part of and the dogs are now safe as well.
The latest from Corgi Connection:
It has been a very trying and rewarding summer for Corgi Connection of Kansas. We took in two pregnant corgis who were given up by their owners and we had 13 puppies on our hands. Thanks to some terrific fosters we have placed all but one of the puppies (adoption pending) and we hope to have mom Ellie placed soon. All this took place while preparing for the Second Annual Kansas Corgi Gathering.
The Second Annual Kansas Corgi Gathering was a great success!
More than 100 people and corgis met that day for an afternoon of play, run, chase, treats and prizes! Lots of fun pictures to see and some video on this Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/events/413830358738090/
Approximately $4,000 was raised through the quilt raffle, silent auction, sale of t-shirts and donations. All of CCK's vet bills are currently paid! Remember however, CCK is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization making donations tax deductible and donations are always welcome!
CCK had an international adoption this summer. A wonderful little male named Corky now calls SW Canada home with Jean Hamilton. She drove all the way from north of Seattle, WA to Kansas to get this perfect match for her.
Corgi Connection now has an "official" logo. It's basically like the web page but it will now be offered on t-shirts and any other CCK stuff. We're very proud of this logo as we hit our fourth year.
Corgi Connection's FaceBook page has received lots of comments, questions and other posting. Thank you Corgi Connection adopter and volunteers, Peggy Medina and Dallas Hayes. The FaceBook tends to get update quicker than this website due to convenience. But both will continue to operate.
Adoptions have continued to be steady, but now we have been pounded with requests to take Corgis in to rescue. Many of the requests are coming from individuals who are having trouble with their personal Corgi. While I work with dogs that have "issues," I am not an animal behaviorist and try to give preference to dogs in shelters and puppy mills.
