Melissa is a Mom, Wife and Realtor, not always in that order.

ECCR began in April, 2017, after Melissa lost the two great loves of her life - Corgi Sammy and Corgidor Thora. She realized there were so many dogs who needed help, and the rescue was born.

While Melissa is Momming or Realtoring (we know those aren't real words), the rest of the crew is saving more dogs.

Transportation Coordinator

Lisa is the person that other fosters rely on for assistance and guidance with the corgis in their care. Lisa grew up with animals being a huge part of her life. She spent most of her younger years living on a farm with her goats, horses, and trusty dog companion Waldi. Lisa’s father was a horse and dog trainer who taught her all she knows about Gentle Training. Lisa lives in the quiet farmlands of central PA with her corgis Remy & Maizy.
