It is with overwhelming sorrow that we announce the passing of Mary T, our beloved founder and the driving force behind Mary T’s Chis and Small Dog Rescue.

Mary had rescued dogs on her own for years, so establishing an official nonprofit dog rescue in 2018 was a natural progression of her life’s work. She was so proud of the rescue that Mary T’s Chis has become.

We want to thank all of you—her followers and friends, our adopters, and our volunteers (past and present)—for helping Mary bring her calling to fruition.

Mary believed with her whole being that she was put on this Earth to save dogs. To say she devoted every last piece of herself to this rescue is not an overstatement.

And her work is not done yet.

In honor of Mary T, please help us find forever homes for the last 20 dogs she so meticulously saved. Consider adopting, sharing our future posts, and contributing to our fundraisers. Mary needs us to get it done!

We currently have 16 dogs ready for adoption and we’re taking applications on the other four. Visit our website at for a roster of them all.

Mary needs all of us to pull together more than ever to save the dogs!

We love you, Mary. And we will always, always miss you.

​A Little About Us

We are a foster based Non Profit Charitable 501C3 Chihuahua and small breed rescue based in Michigan. Our group is made up of dedicated, passionate volunteers that all believe, "Every dog deserves a forever home and a second chance." We  work endlessly to rescue as many dogs in need as we can. 

Even though our rescue is a Non Profit Charitable Organization we go beyond basic vetting on most of our dogs to provide them the best. We strongly rely on donations, fundraisers, and volunteers to continue our work and efforts helping these dogs.

We need your help to continue to educate people of the importance to sterilize and properly vet all dogs. Please Adopt, Don't Shop!

Won't you please help be a voice to the voiceless?

Remember your donation is never too small, every little bit helps.

We need fosters and more fosters. We need fosters yesterday. We need them today, tomorrow and the next day. The only way we can save more dogs is if people step up.
