Shelter Chic: A Foster-Based Rescue Group Run by Volunteers

Shelter Chic’s primary mission is to find forever homes for homeless dogs and cats in need. By promoting adoption in a fun, positive, and whimsical way, we reshape the despondent stigma surrounding animal rescue and homeless pets.

Juliet's "Happily Ever After"...

On a visit to the Associated Humane Society of Newark, one dog caught our eye. Extremely skinny Juliet was standing in the back of her kennel with raw, red skin, swollen paws covered in sores, shaking with her head down. We did not know what exactly was wrong, but we knew she needed medical attention right away. 

Our GoFundMe Campaigns

Puppy with Rare Skin Disease

Tiny Layla was found as stray in appalling condition, her skin was raw, she had almost no fur and she was obviously very uncomfortable. After weeks of tests and trying various medicines, we got the awful news that Layla was suffering from a rare skin disease.

Help Chubbs Fight Liver Disease

Chubbs is a 28 pound, 9 year old cat abandoned in an overcrowded kill shelter. But Shelter Chic saw even through the cage bars how much love Chubbs had to offer - he actually reached out through the bars of his cage, grabbed his rescuer and would not let go!

Sabrina's Road to Recovery

Sabrina is a five-year-old pit bull recently pulled from a kill shelter in New Jersey. In most ways, she’s the perfect dog: even-tempered, loving, good with kids, dog-friendly, and great with new people!

New Hope for Aloha

Aloha is a beautiful, one-year-old German Shepard mix. She is a wonderful dog who suffers from severe social anxiety after being abused in her previous home.

Pretty Pitbull Charity Pin

Anyone who knows this breed recognizes that classically adorable "pittie smile". Add a pink bow and it's cuteness overload! 100% of the proceeds from this pin will be donated to Shelter Chic!
