Nine months ago, an enthusiastic group of volunteers took the plunge and purchased this c.1900 farmhouse on over 5 acres of rolling land with the dream of turning it into the area’s ONLY pet sanctuary. The first phase has been to renovate the old house into the Chesapeake Cats and Dogs offices and a “free roam” living environment for the cattery. The new center will have additional living spaces for our “special needs” felines and kittens as well. We care for the animals with special needs that other area shelters do not have the time and resources to manage.
Since acquiring the property, we have gutted the interior, installed new electric, plumbing and HVAC, insulation to keep our guests cozy, vinyl windows, vinyl siding, exterior doors, a handicapped accessible bathroom, all new drywall surfaces, and a REALLY expensive well. We have scrounged and sweated and begged to get to where we are and are SO close to finishing, we can almost see the finish line!
