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

We Sell Products and Experiences

To help fund the shelter we are constantly brainstorming creative experiences and products that have a connection to our mission. The mission of giving safe haven to discarded dogs who have nowhere else to go and have been abused, handicapped or just old, which brings

incontinence issues, blindness, hard of hearing and severe dental issues. All of the maintenance for the farm and costs associated with caring for dogs in a hospice is overwhelming, which makes the cost of keeping the doors open an extremely difficult task. These are some of our endeavors.
