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 by filling out the form below or downloading one of these files: Microsoft WORD file, PDF file (to print). (If you download one of the files, you can submit your completed application 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 at 410-643-9955 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!
Adoption Application Form:
DISCLAIMER: Chesapeake Cats and Dogs (CCAD) does not guarantee that all prospective adopters/applicants will be approved. We reserve the right to choose the adoptive families we feel are most suited to the pet’s needs at the time of application. We evaluate all applicants on a case-by-case basis. People who are not approved may wish to reapply for a different dog or cat at a later time when their circumstances change. In addition, we reserve the right to redirect applicants to a dog or cat that better fits your lifestyle in order to have a successful adoption. If concerns present themselves at any time during the adoption process, we reserve the right to reevaluate your application.
Please note: if you filled out an application and have not received a response from us within 48 hours to verify your application was received, please contact us by email or by calling 410-643-9955.
