Saving Tiny Seniors

The Gingerbread House is a Pekingese and similar small-breed sanctuary and rescue located in northern New Jersey. We welcome all small-breed pups that need a new home, and we are passionate about saving senior and hospice pups that have special needs due to their age or medical conditions and that would likely be put down if left in a shelter.









Our Promise

We are on a mission to save tiny seniors and end their abuse and neglect. We rehabilitate these precious pups and depending on their condition, they may be available for adoption or they may spend their remaining days in a Gingerbread House foster home. Either way, we ensure they receive the best of everything, and we will never euthanize solely to make space. They each deserve to be spoiled and loved for however much time they have left. We promise to make that happen!

Sanctuary Stories

Meet Henry! Henry came to us with Gracie from a horrific hoarding-neglect situation in upstate New York in December 2019. They are 18+ years old and were in such horrific condition, we thought they would last a week or two at best. But they are both going strong! Read more about their journey to see how far they’ve come!
