Update:  Gabby and Bridgette, the girl Corgis, are still at the West Branch, MI humane society per my call today.  A lady is going to let them know tomorrow if she will take both/one or not at all.  The girls are a mother and daughter whose master moved and couldn't take them. They have not been neutered and are $50 per dog altho you have to put down an additional $50 per dog until you send them proof of "fixing".  It is a "low" kill shelter and I'm not familar with what that means as our County is no kill.  And I should have my head examined for even calling!!  But at least, I'm not crying:)

Over the weekend, I went with my gut feeling and decided not to adopt the two girl Corgis at West Branch Humane Society.  When I called today to advise them, the Corgis had been adopted.  And, the good news, they were kept together.  So, they have a new home with an older Corgi.  I was pleased and will continue my search however bittersweet it is!!

Per a phone call from West Branch humane society, the girl Corgis are still available.  The person who was interested did not follow thru.  I will call them Monday with a decision, however, if someone wants them in the meantime, my decision will not matter.  They are not being held for me.  The lady at the WBHS said they are coming out of their shells and are even tempered.  She felt they were scared at first as they had one master!!  Oh and they do ride well:)

Low kill in Michigan basically means that is a dog/cat is so feral that it can by no means be rehabilitated or is so sickly that the dog/cat would have a poor quality of life after treatment then they will put the dog/cat down.

They are not allowed to euthanize because a dog/cat has not been adopted in a certain time frame. Instead they will ship the animals to another low/no kill shelter in the state that has a higher adoption rate for that breed.

I believe they have to keep in an 85% adoption rate to be considered Low Kill. Where No Kill has to stay within a 90% adoption rate.

I helped set up the No Kill shelter in Gaylord,MI with lots of grants and petitioning local farmers to be a drop off site for feral cats after they have been spayed/neutered and given shots. I'm really happy to see the progress our state is trying to make when it comes to the conditions and regulations of Animal Shelters.


I really believe Cesar Milan has it right, "You don't get the dog you want, you get the dog you need". Whichever way you decide, remember that whatever happens for a reason.

LOL!!  No, and it's quite tempting.  West Branch is about 2 hours away via the freeway.  They are going to call me tomorrow to let me know what the lady decides.  For some reason, if she takes one, I hope she takes both.  If she does, then I'll know they weren't for me.  I'll post after I hear from them.
