The Pembroke Welsh Corgi Club of the Garden State
was founded in 1984 as a not for profit organization dedicated to the promotion and preservation of the Pembroke Welsh Corgi breed. You can find out more about our club on our "about us" page.
Throughout the year we sponsor many educational and competitive events to highlight the special qualities of this wonderful dog.
We are proud to be a regional affiliate club of the

Our 2014 Herding Instinct was a Success!
Despite the bad weather we had 18 dogs come out and try their paw at moving sheep! Fifteen passed, giving us a "pass" rate of 83% for this year. Maybe corgis work better in the rain and mud!
Thank you Peg Forte (chair) and Katherine Spence (tester) for your hard work!
Results are posted on our Herding Instinct Page.
We have two rescue Corgis that need your help
Our "new" rescue dog Maxwell (at left) recently lost his family and is desperately seeking a new home where he can be loved. Max has been through our program before and was adopted by one of our club members who, sadly, passed away earlier this year. Please see his story on our rescue dog page.
Our "celebrity" rescue dog Spike (below, right) recently underwent successful cataract surgery on both eyes. His adoptive family reports that he is enjoying his new lease on life immensely. He likes to look out the windows of "his" home and even checks himself out in the morror! We are still accepting donations on the web to help defray the cost of his surgery.
In addition, donations can be made to Spike's fund by check to our rescue program or by check or credit card directly to Spike's veterinarians in North Carolina. Please see Spike's article on our Rescue Dogs page for details.
You can check out the full story on both these dogs on our page of rescue dogs. For more information on our rescue program, see our main rescue page.

SHOES! We still need your SHOES!
Big feet, small feet, happy feet, dizzy feet - they all (at least the human kind!) have shoes, and many feet have shoes they no longer need or want. The PWCCGS will take your unwanted shoes, recycle them and, at the same time, make money for our club!
Through ShoeBox Recycling we are collecting shoes to repurpose and redistribute to those in need. This keeps old shoes out of landfills and helps provide footwear to people around the world who might not otherwise be able to afford it. The PWCCGS makes $20 for every 40 pounds (approximately one shipping box) of shoes we collect and send in.
Club members are putting shoe collection boxes in several locations, and we will collect at our club events throughout the year. Please be aware that not all types of footwear can be accepted; you can find out more about this on the ShoeBox Recycling FAQ page.
If you would like to get a collection box (or two or three!) to put in a location near you, or if you would like more information about this program, please contact Karen Gunzel.
