Doggie Adoption Month at THE BLACK DOG: 9/7

Saturday, September 7: Black Dog Adoption Event
11am to 2pm, 117 Main St, Annapolis, MD 21401-2002, United States

Join us for our dog adoption event with Chesapeake Cats and Dogs at The Black Dog Annapolis store on Saturday, September 7th from 11am-2pm! A representative from the organization will be on site with several dogs for a meet & greet, the first step towards finding each dog a loving family. PLUS…The Black Dog will donate 20% of its total sales made during the day of the event to the visiting shelter. We have also provided each shelter with unique Black Dog Doggie Starter Kits featuring a selection of Black Dog treats, toys, and exclusive offers to give to each dog’s new adopted family when they bring their new pup home. Finding homes for these rescue dogs is a mission close to our roots. Our namesake, Black Dog, was a rescue pup herself and many of our own crew members have rescue dogs as part of their families. We hope to see you there!

Fosters Needed!

We are looking for responsible animal lovers who are looking to become a fos- ter for our sanctuary. It is a very rewarding experience. Fosters help us take in  kittens, cats and dogs who we otherwise can not. CCAD covers ALL the nec- essary veterinary care expenses for your foster. We support you in every step  of the way. Benefits of Fostering:  You are saving a life! By fostering, you make it possible for CCAD to rescue a dog or cat from a kill-facility. Without foster homes to provide temporary care for dogs and cats, CCAD is limited in the number of homeless animals we are able to rescue.  Through the socialization and home environment you provide, you increase that  animal’s chance of being adopted! As you learn about the dog’s and/or cat’s per- sonality, our rescue group is better able to place them in permanent homes. This is a  wonderful gift you can give to people looking to adopt.  Your own pet will learn more social skills and have a temporary companion and playmate! It’s a good way to see if you are ready for an additional pet. It’s not always clear whether an additional pet would fit in with your family at the present time. With fostering, you have a chance to see whether or not adopting is right for your family. Maybe providing temporary foster care is better for you.  The dog or cat gets to live with your family rather than at a shelter! Animals get  stressed from shelter conditions. With time, many cats and dogs develop psychologi- cal issues as pent-up energy, frustration, aggression or boredom builds. Home envi- ronments and one-on-one attention prevent this.   Fostering lets you actively participate in the rehabilitation of a traumatized or needy animal! Due to the attention and security you give them in your home, your foster can become very different—less timid and less emotionally or physically injured.  It’s a way to help without spending much money! CCAD is responsible for ALL the necessary veterinary care expenses for your foster. We will support you every step of the way.  Any volunteering makes a person feel good! Fostering is a way to give back to your community. If you love animals, there is nothing more rewarding than helping a homeless dog or cat.  Fostering teaches children about compassion, generosity, and responsibility!  There are MANY other reasons to consider becoming a foster, but most of all, fostering is incred- ibly satisfying! The day your foster finds their perfect forever home is a day of rejoicing and  knowing that they wouldn’t be where they are without all of your efforts and affection!
