Shelter Chic is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit animal rescue organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming shelter dogs and cats, taking away the stigma associated with animal shelters and their residents, and promoting animal adoption in a fun, positive, and inviting way. We bring light to the fact that there are a wide variety of animals that end up in shelters – including puppies, kittens, and purebreds – through no fault of their own. Our goal is to ensure that the most commonly passed-over rescue animals (including the seniors, those with special needs, and breeds with negative stereotypes) are given the opportunity to find loving, forever homes.
