The Pup Collection

I created the Pup Collection with my own special pup in mind.

Introducing Chica

In 2012, I adopted my adorably chunky chihuahua-mix Chica. I nearly overlooked her at the shelter because she was parked in a small corner taking a nap. Luckily, I took a second look!

The bond that we experience with “Man’s Best Friend” is like no other. I was fortunate to quickly establish this bond and connection with Chica (she cuddled with me on the couch within hours of adoption).

I adopted Chica from the Humane Rescue Alliance in Washington, DC. She was surrendered by her original owner to a high-kill shelter in South Carolina. She was brought to DC where she was cared for at the Humane Rescue Alliance until we were united together.

It is absolutely fitting that the Humane Rescue Alliance is the charity represented by the Pup Collection. Aside from their mission to bring people and animals together, they are dedicated to providing affordable veterinary care. They offer a low cost vaccination clinic as well as a discounted full service vet clinic to income-qualified families.


The Humane Rescue Alliance is involved in many more endeavors that I cannot squeeze into this blog post. Please check out their website to learn more about the awesome work that they are doing.
