7 years old, adopted by foster

August 6, 2022: Congratulations, Valkyrie!

There are few things better than rescue success stories, and that’s exactly what we have with our girl Valkyrie.

This sweet corgi / border collie mix joined the SECR family back in November and was down on her luck. She was suffering from pain and mobility limitations due to a previous hip injury, was battling resulting arthritis, and had elevated eye pressure that needed examination and monitoring. Valkyrie needed love and care from a dedicated family that could see her through her medical treatments. Lucky for her – and us – we placed Valkyrie with a perfect-for-her foster and, following a very serious but successful hip surgery, she sailed through recovery and bonded with her human and corgi foster siblings, Quincy and Millie.

After everything they’d been through together Valkyrie and family decided they were all in it for the long haul. We’re so excited we could bring them together and are happy to announce today that Valkyrie has officially been adopted by her foster.


November 5, 2021: Welcome Valkyrie!

We’re heading into the weekend with a growing family. Please put your paws together for our newest addition to SECR, Valkyrie!

Valkyrie is a sweet, 6-year-old corgi / border collie mix and we’re happy to have her with us to help her through a few critical health issues. She’s been battling a painful dislocated hip from a previous injury that will require surgery to repair, and also needs treatment for her resulting advanced arthritis. She’ll be seeing our veterinary specialists for a surgical consult soon, and will have several weeks of recovery post-surgery during which time she may need mobility assistance from a sling (and her humans). Valkyrie also has elevated eye pressure, so we’ll be monitoring that and taking her to a cardiologist and ophthalmologist if it doesn’t improve on its own.

Sometimes it takes a village when it comes to corgi care, and we’re certainly happy to have Valkyrie as part of ours. Welcome to the family, sweet girl! We’ll get you on your feet as soon as we can.
