This 501c3 Nonprofit was created in 2014 to give refuge to abused, handicapped and senior dogs. To begin this venture we bought a 10 Acre farm and named it Le Château de Chien. The intent was to hold farm weddings to fund the shelter. Sadly the neighbors complained to the county and we were told we needed a variance to hold weddings and the neighbors voted against our request. This left us scrambling to find alternative ways of funding. Our daughter mentioned Airbnb and we joined. To our amazement we received SuperHost status our first year and have maintained that designation to present. Our Airbnb is seasonal. People love to come here because they can bring their dogs and hike the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. We are solely dependant on the funds from Airbnb and the Experiences that people can book to fund our shelter. Since the beginning of the Covid 19 Pandemic our Airbnb has suffered. We are in dire need of funds to feed, get veterinary care and cleaning supplies. We continue to request donations to care for our current 16 dogs and 2 cats.
We need sponsors to finance dental procedures for 20 dogs.
We need their decks replaced because of rotting wood.
We need a truck. Our current 1 and only vehicle is a 2000 Miata which doesn't fit enough dog food or rescues.
You can help us simply by registering our 501c3 nonprofit, Petite Trésors Rescue & Sanctuary as the charity you want Amazon to donate to on Amazon Smile for all your Amazon purchases. Amazon will donate a portion of their money based on the purchases you make. This costs you nothing.
