Announcement: During the coronavirus shutdown, the Chesapeake Cats and Dogs Sanctuary will be closed. If you are needing assistance, you may call 1.410.643.9955.  The office will be available for walk in after this crisis passes. 

Until then, we hope you will continue to support our effort.  Please donate by clicking the “donate” button on the right.  The requirements for food, shelter and medical attention will remain during this shutdown.  Over the past 14 years, CCAD has stepped up to support those cats and dogs who can not support themselves.  We will continue our rescue work.

Give us a call. You may also contact us by email at

Thank you for your support. To help us through this difficult time, please donate using the donate button to the right

Site updates and improvements

Attention:  We have had reports related to applications for dogs and cats that are not not getting feedback on in our normal 24 hour response response goal.  We need your help in making sure our goals are achieved.  If you submit an application and do not receive a receipt verification in 24 hours please call our hot line at 410.643.9955 and let us know.  We appreciate your help.

Operations are being streamlined, personnel reassigned, volunteers motivated and Administrative procedures and By-Laws are being rewritten by our action committee. As a part of that reorganization, we are completely revising our web presence. Plus we have some new designers to improve security and usability. The old web was showing its age and more content needed to be included. Because of that, we have an “out with the old and in with the new” initiative dedicated to streamlining and improving the CCAD web site. Over the next 30 days you will see the site change and grow. We ask your patience during this time.

Above all, we hope you will continue to assist us in achieving our mission with donations, adoptions, and fostering. CCAD was the recipient of a donated addition to the sanctuary on Sunday, 4 January by a generous boy scout troop. See the picture below. The future of America is bright with qualified and generous young men like those in the Boy Scouts. Their efforts added to the girl scout who helped at the successful Breakfast with Santa make the world a better place.
