Announcing Our October Pets of the Month:

Majestic grey and white cat with bright green eyes lying on a perch Black lab mix with tail wagging and Playful white lab mix
Adult female domestic short-hair

Alvanya is about 9 years old and came to our adoption center when her owner passed and the family member in charge of caring for her abandoned her at the vet’s office. She is an absolute darling of a cat: purrfectly gentle with people of all ages (she adores children!), comfortable around the other cats in our adoption center, and a wonderful size to hug! She would love to go home with you! Please come meet Alvanya. She would love the chance to charm you. Her adoption fee has been paid in advance by a caring volunteer who would like potential adopters to consider Alvanya.

Adult Lab mixes

Sandra D, black lab mix, female spayed and her brother Tippy, lab mix, male neutered; both are seven years old. They are lifelong siblings. Due to foreclosure, they lost their home and were turned over to a shelter. Chesapeake Cats and Dogs saved their lives. Now they need a new forever home. They were adopted together and play well together but can be adopted apart. Sandra D. is fun and good-natured, loves to be rubbed on, and loves to play with her brother, Tippy. Active and social, Tippy is more reserved and nervous and would do best in a home with adults. Both get along well with other dogs.

Please print and distribute the following flyers to local establishments so that ALVANYA and SANDRA D. & TIPPY can find their forever homes this month: Cat of the Month flyer, Dog of the Month flyer.

Tree of Life Pet Sanctuary Update:


142 generous people donated $10,335 to our Tree of Life Pet Sanctuary Indiegogo campaign!
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

While the Indiegogo initiative has closed, you may still donate to building the Tree of Life Pet Sanctuary by clicking HERE. Funds raised will be used to cover the down payment and perform necessary repairs prior to relocation. Once we have purchased the property, any funds raised specifically for Tree of Life Pet Sanctuary will be put toward paying off the mortgage and a building fund for the new state-of-the-art adoption center we’re planning on the property (pictured below).

Announcing our September Pets of the Month: HUGS and MICKEY!

Handsome buff-colored medium-hair cat with green eyes Beagle/terrier mix with brown and white fur and dark brown eyes enjoying being petting
Adult male medium-hair

Hugs is a 5 year old domestic medium hair that was returned to a local humane society. His absolute favorite activity is… giving and receiving hugs! He is a fluffy cuddle-bug who is super affectionate and loving. With other cats, he prefers being left alone, but isn’t assertive or aggressive about it. If you’re looking for a fluffy cat to cuddle with, Hugs is the cat for you! Please come to our adoption center and give Hugs a big hug!

Adult male Beagle/Boston terrier mix

Mickey is a seven year old Beagle/Boston mix who was rescued from a hoarding situation. He has been fully vetted including a dental and is a healthy little love bug. At 16 pounds, he could use some good food, a comfortable bed, and lots of attention. He would be happiest as the center of attention, but does get along with other dogs. Cats are an unknown, but he does need to go to a home without children.

Please print and distribute the following flyers to local establishments so that HUGS and MICKEY can find their forever homes this month: Cat of the Month flyer, Dog of the Month flyer.

CCAD is now An Act of Dog Rescue Rewards Partner!

10154018_647174375336889_920200470_nChesapeake Cats and Dogs has been selected as a “rescue rewards partner” at An Act of Dog – Museum of Compassion! Please be sure to check them out!

“Our project was created to fund the needs of these animals and all of the groups involved in saving them. Sadly, these crucial organizations are severely underfunded and cannot afford to save them all without our collective support. Our rewards donations allow them to pull shelter animals to safety, but the costs to keep these animals healthy and with good medical care, can run into the thousands for just one animal.

Every product saves a shelter animal!

When you buy one of our products, we give 100% of the proceeds from your purchase to the 100 rescue organizations in our partner program from all 50 states. Donations are distributed to them twice a year.”
