The work of Southeast Corgi Rescue is carried out by many, and fosters and volunteers are the backbone of all we do for these dogs. We’re also blessed with a wonderful board that manage things behind the scenes – like the website, and fundraising and community education to mention just a few areas. For the day to day running of things, however, you will most likely hear from one of the four people who call these corgis their own.
From SATCHEL and JILL:
Helping mom with all her different roles at SECR takes two of us! We’re both rescues so we know the ins and outs of the business. Mom handles the adoption applications after they come in and is in charge of financial matters.
It takes a lot of work to review everything, but she always does a thorough job because she wants to make sure that each corgi finds the best fit in their new home – just like we found ours!
I’m actually a happy little guy but my eyebrows always give me a slightly concerned look. I share my corgi kingdom with two cats, twin boys, and the occasional foster. As a former rescue, I make an awesome foster brother and can help show new dogs the ropes.
Things stay busy around here as my human wears many hats. On top of working full time, she finds and organizes fosters and other volunteers for SECR and facilitates owner surrenders and shelter pulls. I’m a herding dog, but Mom has the search instinct for corgis in need and there’s always someone new coming into rescue!
My human lives in North Carolina but loves to travel to the other SECR states (SC and GA) to meet corgis and their families. Her corgi addiction began at age 3 when her family brought home their first corgi puppy.
I was found as a stray wandering the highway near Winston Salem and made my way to rescue. When I’m not helping answer internet and email inquiries about adoptions and posting to FB, you’ll most likely find me in the ‘dead cockroach’ position, snoring and enjoying my role as queen of the household.
From BANJO and MARGOT:
A Corgi’s work is never done, and Mom makes sure we’re always doing plenty of it on behalf of SECR. Both of us are rescues – Margot’s even an SECR alum – so we’re really the experts in making sure everything works here like a well-oiled machine. We help Mom manage the website and social media, making sure she’s sharing the greatest photos and important updates on the SECR Facebook page every day.
Mom has a full-time job outside of SECR so she’s pretty busy, but she always makes time for us and our Dad, and our two kitty siblings, Tweek and Olive. She also always tells us that SECR is one of the most important organizations there is, and makes sure we understand we should do whatever we can to promote adopting and fostering (Margot started out as a foster and Banjo as one of the best foster brothers there is), and raising money so SECR has the resources it needs to save more Corgis and Corgi mixes like us. Mom is great at sharing all the important information SECR supporters need to become involved.
