A New Kind of Shelter

Shelter Chic is a women-led revolutionary nonprofit, no kill, New York City animal shelter whose primary mission is to find homeless dogs and cats their forever homes. We feature a cutting-edge boutique for animals and their humans, whose proceeds go entirely to running the shelter. Our organization is founded on the principles of passion, style, spirit, and spunk. We believe every animal, whether they were formerly a stray, a rescue from an abusive situation, or a purebred surrendered by their owner deserves a fairytale ending. This is no ordinary shelter, yet our mission is the same: give our cats and dogs their happily ever afters.

Shelter Chic’s primary mission is to find more homeless dogs and cats forever homes. Our positive, stylish, and fun atmosphere welcomes people who, for various reasons, prefer to buy their pets from stores or breeders. We aim to take away the stigma associated with animal shelters and its animals and attract a diverse crowd looking to welcome a four (or three!) legged addition to their family. Rather than wearing generic “Adopt Me” vests (not every dog looks good in orange), our animals will strut the streets of New York in adorable outfits and accessories. Staff and volunteers will model Shelter Chic apparel with edgy slogans and innovative designs, all in the name of promoting animal adoption. With our fierce marketing, Shelter Chic is pushing boundaries and drawing attention to a cause that is still unknown to many. We believe that every cat and dog has their own unique personality and no matter where they come from, they all deserve to look good, feel good, and live the life in loving homes. Shelter Chic strives to educate the public about the importance of adoption and other issues relating to animal welfare in a friendly and fun way. We welcome all, promote love, and encourage spoiling our furry friends because in the end, they're the ones who rescue us.
