About Us

Welcome to The City of Refuge, a dog sanctuary founded by a couple who were deeply moved by the heartbreaking situation of street dogs in the rural areas of Puebla, Mexico. My wife and I tried our best to help by adopting as many dogs as possible, finding homes for others, and nursing many back to health. But the sheer number of dogs in need and our limited resources and space made it clear that something more needed to be done.

So we decided to take action and build The City of Refuge, where every dog would be given food, shelter, good health, and most importantly, love. We believe that every dog deserves a second chance, and we don't want to turn any dog away. They all deserve better than that. That's why a significant portion of the profits from Pampering Pups, our online pet accessory store, will go towards funding the construction and operation of The City of Refuge.

By choosing to shop with us, you're not just pampering your pup, but you're also making a difference in the lives of many more. Every purchase helps us to provide a haven for street dogs in need, and to give them the care and attention they need to thrive. We believe that the love and companionship of a dog are one of life's greatest gifts, and we want to make that gift available to as many as possible.

Thank you for joining us on this journey and being a part of our mission to make the world a better place, one dog at a time. Together, we can give hope to so many more.

Thank you for shopping with us.
