Like every rescue group, we need food, money, and foster homes! We're always looking for foster homes and volunteers in the Central Texas area. This includes San Antonio, Austin, and surrounding areas. Please contact us if you can foster a dog from time to time! I desperately need foster homes to save the Danes and Corgis in need! And, since rescue involves money (lots and lots of it) most of which comes from my pocket, we can always use donations.

On average, each dog costs me $325 to get ready to adopt out. That's not to say that every dog costs that much, but some dogs cost in excess of $1000 to get healthy enough to adopt out, plus the food and other expenses for the time they're here. CorgiDane Rescue is applying for a 501(c)3 tax-exempt status, which will make contributions tax-deductible.
If you wonder why you see so many "other" breeds on the website, it's because I do help owners of other breeds when they need to rehome their pets. I have several mixed-breed dogs here that I desperately need to find homes for so I can help more Corgis and Great Danes.
A word about Corgis: Corgis shed, they bark, they herd little kids, they shed, they need a job to do, they do not obey without question, they shed, they may eat things that they shouldn't eat, and, yes, they do shed!
Helping Udders is a great organization that makes dog toys out of recycled milking materials, and donates 25% of the proceeds to dog rescue organizations. Click below, and if you buy any toys, a donation will be made to CorgiAid (www.corgiaid.org).
We have joined Paws for Courage, a network of rescuers and shelters who will provide shelter for pets of victims of domestic violence while the victims are in domestic violence shelters. If you or someone you know is in a violent situation and is afraid to leave because domestic violence shelters don't accept pets, please click here: http://www.pawsforcourage.org/img/banner.jpg
As a member of AAPAW (Alamo Area Partners for Animal Welfare), CorgiDane Rescue is active in several different community initiatives. Amongst these are Lug Nuts, which gives dog owners, especially owners of Bully breeds, an opportunity to compete with their dogs in a weight-pulling competition. This helps channel the competitive spirit away from dog fighting and towards something fun, healthy, and rewarding. We are also involved in Training Wheels, which "brings the shelter into the community". This is a community outreach program which seeks out pet owners in need before their problems become so insurmountable that they surrender their pets to the shelter. If you would like to participate in either of these two programs, please contact us and let us know!!! You don't have to be a dog owner, just an animal lover! This is a great way for people who love pets but can't currently own one to be involved in the animal welfare community! We welcome volunteers, whether for our rescue or for any other animal welfare organization. Please contact us if you're interested in volunteering!
