PRISCILLA, Senior female Domestic Short Hair

Adoption Fee Waived for this Special Needs Senior!

Priscilla’s old life consisted of living in a cage in a garage. Since coming to our adoption center, she has developed allergies, possibly due to the stress of living with many other cats. She loves affection and needs to find a forever home where she can cuddle with her new family with no competition or worries!

SIGNORA “SIGGY”, Adult female Pit Bull Terrier Mix

Siggy is a super sweet little girl who came from an anxiety-filled home. Once she adjusted to her new home with CCAD, she became happy and playful. She can be shy around new people, but she so wants to find her forever home!

Please contact us for more information about adopting PRISCILLA or SIGNORA “SIGGY”. Also, please download and distribute the following fliers to local establishments to help Priscilla and Siggy find their forever homes: Priscilla, Cat of the Month, Signora “Siggy”, Dog of the Month.

Sweet Boy Cheddar Fund: Donations Needed!

Meet Cheddar!


At around 1:00 p.m. the afternoon of July 18th, our office manager, Debbie, heard some noise outside and opened the door to find this little orange kitten sitting on the doorstep. He looked at her with his beautiful eyes and said “Please don’t leave me; I need your help!” She then saw his tail, which was mangled.

Cheddar was taken to the Emergency Vet in Annapolis. The vet there thinks that “Sweet Boy Cheddar” either was hit by a car or his tail got caught in a fan belt. Cheddar had surgery early Saturday morning, 7/19. His entire tail was amputated.

8/1 Update:


Cheddar had his sutures removed yesterday. He weighed 2.53 pounds. He is now scheduled to be neutered and have his second distemper and rabies shot the week of August 17, 2014. He will then be ready to go to his “loving forever home”!

8/22 Update: Cheddar has been adopted!
