THE CHI SOCIETY of Ct is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) volunteer rescue network. We do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they live in our foster homes until they can be placed in suitable, caring, permanent homes. We work with local animal control facilities to help homeless dogs throughout the New England area and we also have a very successful Texas program, having brought hundreds of homeless dogs up North and into loving homes. In addition we provide sanctuary for a number of dogs, who, through no fault of their own, have been deemed un-adoptable and would have otherwise been euthanized.

We provide food, shelter, medical care, grooming and exercise as needed for all of our dogs. For more information, email us at TheChiSociety@gmail.com

Please keep in mind that all of our dogs have come to us because they either got lost, were abandoned, surrendered, neglected or abused and have been through some scary and confusing times in their lives. They need an adjustment period to be the very best they can be. We ask that anyone who adopts a dog through our group commits to give the dog AT Least 3 weeks to acclimate to its new surroundings. During this transition time, it is not unusual for dogs to nip, snap, bark or have "accidents" in the house, because they are nervous, confused or sometimes scared. Many times formal training can help you learn to handle your dog and help form a bonding with your new family member.

Rescued dogs can make fabulous, loyal and loving pets if you give them the four things they need most...time, patience, affection and understanding. We expect our dogs to be treated as family members in their permanent homes. No one will ever love you like the dog that you rescue! These dogs possess only one fault: They place all their trust and love in you! We ask that you commit to this dog and be worthy of that devotion.

Southern Comforts non-profit 501(c)(3) that is a Texas based rescue group dedicated to rescuing dogs from local kill shelters. Once out of the shelter we place them into foster homes where they are spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, vaccinated, de-wormed, heartworm tested and treated if found to be positive. While in their foster homes they are evaluated for the homes they would be best to be placed in. Seeing if they are good with children, other dogs, cats, needing someone with them most of the time or independent enough to entertain themselves till their families return home from work. If not housebroke we work on crate training along with housebreaking. The more we know about our rescues the better chance we can find the perfect home for them.

We work closely with a number of local shelters in going in to take good pictures of the dogs in their shelters for them to post locally increasing their chances of finding home and for us to post for adoption up north. The important thing being they get out of the shelters and into the safety and love of their forever homes. As space opens in our foster homes the dog is pulled from the shelter and kept in foster homes a minimum of 2 weeks, while we learn more about the dog while getting the vetting done.

We post our dogs with The Chi Society of Ct. where we take applications, and search for perfect homes for our rescues in the New England States. Due to the lax spay/neuter laws in Texas our shelters are always at full capacity. It is a constant race to get the dogs in need out of the shelters and into foster homes before they are euthanized because of overcrowding. The Chi Society has graciously offered to help us in our endeavor to get as many dogs posted for adoption as possible and help in working our adoptions from their end in Connecticut.

Although the name is new to the Chi Society website we have been working in tandem for the last year while with another rescue group.  A few of us have broken away and started our own rescue group to work solely with The Chi Society. Over the last year we have adopted hundreds of our rescues through this alliance and hope to continue to do so till the spay neuter laws change in Texas and there are no more dogs in danger sitting in shelters.
