How Do I Give Up My Corgi?
You can give up your Corgi by letting someone you know adopt, finding someone online to adopt, or by surrendering him to a shelter or a rescue. You'll want to understand what each of these entails and which options will be best for your dog. After all, you want to make sure that she has a wonderful and happy life even though you're no longer taking care of her.
Rescues and Shelters
While many people think of these facilities first when they have to give up their dog, there are other options available that could be a better solution. These organizations do their best to take care of the dogs that come to them, and they work hard to get them adopted. However, there is no guarantee that your Corgi will be adopted after being surrendered to one of these facilities.
Rescues are no-kill facilities that are popular with people who have to give up their dogs. Because of this popularity, it means that the rescues are often filled up and won't have room. Shelters will have room because they make room by only keeping dogs for a limited period. They'll sometimes have to euthanize the animals in their care to make room for incoming dogs.
When you surrender your Corgi, you'll also have to pay a surrender fee. The price of this fee varies, but it's usually at least $50. When you contact the facility, they can let you know about all of the various policies they have and the cost.
Give Your Corgi to Someone You Know
Rather than surrendering your dog to a shelter or rescue, you might want to have more control over who gets to adopt her. A good option is to choose someone in your life that's been looking to adopt. You might have a friend or family member that has been looking for a great furry companion and your dog could be a perfect choice.
However, you still need to be sure that this is the right person to become the new owner. Will they have enough time to spend with your dog? Can they provide a stable and happy home? Will they take her to the vet when needed? Always make sure you're choosing the best new owner for your dog.
Rehome Using an Online Pet Adoption Site
Maybe you don't know anyone who's looking to adopt right now. If that's the case, you still have the Internet to help you find a home for your Corgi. There are sites like Rehome that are dedicated to helping you find the perfect owner for your dog. You can create a profile that includes a bio, videos, and pictures of your Corgi.
The bio should be clear and honest about everything your dog needs to do well. If she snaps at children, for example, this should be in the bio. You want to be sure that the adopters have all of the information they need to know whether she's the right dog for them. You'll appreciate that you have control over where your Corgi goes when you have to give her up.
