About the Campaign

Update: The puppy mill was raided by authorities and shut down, please see update section for more details

Corgis in a puppy mill,

Australian Shepards in a hoarding situation

There are nearly 60 dogs in total. Most are Corgis and Aussies, but not all. All of them need basic care, and it adds up so fast. Each dog costs about $275 for basic care like vaccinations, deworming, neutering, and because they are in Texas they need heart worm tests as well.

And then some have more needs. Like Morkie:

Morkie has a staph infection and years of neglect

She is thirteen years old, and so neglected. When, if ever, did she get to see a vet? When did she last have decent food? Until she was rescued in February, probably not for many years. She is safe and cared for now, but a good example of some of the more extreme cases from the rescue that need more than just basic care.

Many of the Corgi’s are young and cute. Though they need some behavior training, they are highly adoptable

Most of them are younger, many puppies, and in good health. The rescue North Texas Australian Shepard Rescue is dealing with them all, and simply cannot afford the cost. It is a small group of people, and they are spending all their time getting this dogs in safe homes, working on the ones that are not well socialized, all of these things, so that they do not have time to spend networking and asking for donations. Oh, and it looks like the breeder that they got the Corgis from will have another group coming in March!

Safe Corgi in a foster home:

What happens is some of these puppy mills, for various reasons, find that they have groups of dogs that just aren’t getting sold. They could kill the dogs, and the breeder in Oklahoma where the Corgis come from has been said to do this. Reports of drowning, shooting, and honestly even worse. But if a rescue will come and just take them all at once, that is easier for the breeder and so they will give them up to rescues, if the rescue is fast to reply and just comes and gets the dogs right away. Rescuers cannot wait. They cannot ask these breeders to hold on a month. They’ll just kill the dogs. And so when the rescuers got the word, they went right away!

The situation of the 30+ Australian Shepards, like Morkie:

(You may be surprised, but breeding operations like this are legal in every state but California. And in many states, like Oklahoma where the Corgi breeder is located, state laws actually protect breeders and make enforcement of animal cruelty laws, even by state authorities, very difficult.)

Your donation will get ALL these dogs ready for adoption, and importantly spayed and neutered! Those with additional needs like Morkie, will get the treatments they need. Donations are paid to the veterinarians and the rescue only, so please donate in confidence and make a difference right now.

    It makes me so sad to see how these poor dogs were treated. My friend, Lynn West, is fostering a pair of corgis, one of which is about to have puppies. Lynn is a saint.

    As a long time, lover of Pembroke, corgis of 21 years, I sympathize and am super unhappy about the situation. We currently have four Pembroke corgis and love them dearly. It’s really upsetting that people breed for money and then treat them like! Please do everything within your power to save and help as many as you can. I hope this donation does help some. I have shared the post and written about it too. 🐾🐾💚💚💕🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🥲🥲
