Who are we?
Gnocchi’s Den is a Vancouver based company created by Winnie, with the help of Gnocchi the Chihuahua. Gnocchi is our CEO, while Winnie is just… um… the minion. We’d like to think we’re a superhero duo though.
What do we do?
Gnocchi’s Den offers your urban canine friends (ok and feline friends as well) apparel that is affordable and well-made. On top of that, we also donate $5 to either BC Chihuahua Rescue or Richmond Animal Protection Society (RAPS) for every piece of apparel that we sell.
Look good, feel good AND donate to a good cause? Yep that’s definitely our motto :)

Why do we support BC Chihuahua Rescue and RAPS?Believe it or not, our very handsome CEO Gnocchi is a rescue. He was abandoned at 6 months old because he has liver disease. Thanks to BC Chihuahua Rescue and RAPS, he was given a second chance to enjoy his life being a very loved (well, spoiled really) Chihuahua. His feline siblings were also adopted from RAPS, and so we would love to give back to these two amazing organizations.
