Chesapeake Cats and Dogs: A life of love and dignity for all animals


Adoptable Cats | Adoptable Dogs | Petfinder

fancy_fosterMost of our adults cats reside at our cage-free adoption center in Queenstown, while our young kittens and dogs are in foster homes or at Dandyland Pet Care Center in Centreville. (Please click here to see the list of dogs currently waiting for a foster or forever home at Dandyland.) We are a no-kill animal rescue that gives our animals as long as they need to find the right home!

Because our cats live in our cage-free adoption center and our dogs are in foster homes or at Dandyland, our organization is uniquely qualified to match potential adopters with the right animal for their home. A lot of the animals in our rescue are from kill shelters. When you adopt from us, you are saving two lives because you are allowing us to save yet more animals from kill shelters. Please consider adopting from us, so that we can continue our mission of providing a life of love and dignity for all cats and dogs.

Adoption Process:

Adoption Application:sleepingmeme Online Form, Microsoft WORD file, PDF file (to print)

All applications are processed by volunteers in the order they are received with the intent to make the best match for families and dogs/cats. To adopt from us, please fill out an adoption application: you can complete an application online by clicking here; or download one of the files above and then submit the completed form by email, by fax at 866-811-5119, or by dropping it off at our adoption center during open business hours. This application will give us the information we need to make sure the cat or dog you’re considering is the right fit for your home. The adoption donation ($100 for cats; usually between $200-400 for dogs, depending on breed) helps to cover the costs of spaying/neutering, testing for contagious diseases, micro-chipping, and required shots. Please contact us if you have any questions. Please understand that it may take longer at times for us to process applications on high-interest animals, such as kittens or puppies. Thank you for understanding!

Please be aware that our dogs are in foster homes and are not located at our adoption center in Queenstown. You can contact us by email to arrange a meeting with a dog, or you can meet some of our dogs at an adoption show or fundraising event.

AUGUSTINE: adult female

Augustine lost her home when her family didn’t want a litter box in the house while it was on the market. She is generally a quiet cat, but she also loves the chance to play! She dreams of a finding a home with people who love her and finding a lap to sleep on!

JASPER: Adult male Dachshund/Beagle mix

Jasper is a combination of doxy and beagle (and something pot-bellied looking at his belly!). He has a loving disposition and adores being called a good boy. He gets along with his foster yorkie brother. Jasper enjoys indestructible toys and has a fondness for squeakers and stuffing. He likes receiving affection and also likes to give affection! He’s quite the love-bug!
