Petite Trésors Rescue & Sanctuary -

        a 501c3 nonprofit 

Go Fund Me Through theCovid 19 Pandemic

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 Airbnb has cancelled all bookings. We are in dire need of funds to feed, get veterinary care and cleaning supplies. We have filed bankruptcy and are surviving solely on social security. We literally can't make it. We are requesting donations to care for our current 20 dogs and 2 cats.

It takes a village and the town of Chesterton Indiana and the Porter County Government has failed us. Please help today. To read about our Dog Hospice https://petitetresorsrescue.com/contact

Save Our Nonprofit for Abused, Handicapped & Senior Dogs Before I Die

Petite Trésors Rescue & Sanctuary​


Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit Petite Tresors Rescue and Sanctuary, a 501c3 Dog Hospice for abused, handicapped and senior dogs, and any donation will help make an impact.

Since the beginning of creating our dog hospice In 2014, we have struggled. We receive no funding except for donations we ourselves raise. The majority of funding so far has been by offering our additional space and Experiences we have through Airbnb. Unfortunately due to the Pandemic, Airbnb has canceled all Experiences and we are in dire straits. Currently we have filed bankruptcy and listed Le Château de Chien, the farm we purchased and renovated to house the hospice, for sale.

Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me and the many helpless dogs that we have given refuge.

The Goal We Want to Achieve

Our mission is to provide refuge for life to abused, handicapped, and senior dogs. To support this endeavor, we created several Facebook groups and pages about different experiences and products we have created to generate funds to support the shelter.

About Our Dog Shelter


Petite Trésors Rescue & Sanctuary is a 501c3 nonprofit organization for abused, handicapped and senior dogs. We are located in Chesterton Indiana where we purchased a 10 acre farm to create this sanctuary.

The dogs live on the first floor with us as a family, while the entire upstairs was renovated for Airbnb. Our shelter is only 10 minutes from Indiana Dunes Lake Shore.

What makes us different is we operate like a hospice giving unconditional love, where these precious beings live with us as family. They are free to roam in and out, never caged and sleep with us every night. It takes a village to do this and we are inviting you to ours. Help us care for these voiceless angels.

We need volunteers who do everything. If you don't like dogs but do like to garden, we need you. If you like to do carpentry and have the time to volunteer there is enough work to keep busy for years. If you like to sew but have run out of projects our rescues are always shredding something. If you love to paint, we need it. We are not tech savvy, therefore if you are and would love to share your time, please give us a media presents. Are you an attorney that wants to do good? We are desperate for help. Do you have a skill such as upholstery? Would you like to give a class here? Are you a Potter? Would you give classes here? Are you bored or just want to sit and watch TV all day, but would also be happy to pet a dog while watching? Come on over. If you have read this far, we think you get the general idea, and just maybe have a skill or time or both we haven't mentioned. Please don't hesitate to reach out.
