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

Embellished By Mary

Embellished By Mary was created because I was constantly ruining clothes with paint, tears, stains and more. But I loved the clothes and couldn't throw them away. Well as they say, necessity is the mother of invention. So I started taking the ruined clothes and began putting appliqués over the problems. Pretty soon I was painting my own patches as well as painting directly on the clothes. Beginning March 1st through October 31st, I will be holding classes on Sundays from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM in creating beautiful one of a kid clothes out of clothes you already have or you are welcome to buy something from Mary's Closet. In addition, appliqués and hand painted patches will be available for purchase. The class is $30/per person per hour. If you have clothes you would like transformed but do not want to take the class, you are welcome to schedule a time to meet and I will transform the clothes for you at a cost of $30 per hour plus materials you may want to purchase from my inventory.
