Tree of Life Pet Sanctuary Donations:

We are trying to build a NEW state-of-the-art home for our cats and dogs on a 5.5 acre site near Chesapeake College​. Currently, we attempt to fill this need by utilizing our very small rented space, spreading our animals amongst willing foster families, and boarding with a WONDERFUL kennel facility, the Dandyland Pet Care Center in Centreville, MD. The Tree of Life Pet Sanctuary will eventually allow us to consolidate our efforts at one location and better serve our community. Please click here to learn more!

The Nelson Cheddar Fund:

Nelson Cheddar came to Chesapeake Cats and Dogs with a fractured front leg. With some expert veterinary care and a lot of extra tender loving care, Nelson’s splint was able to come off, and we thought he was on the fast road to recovery. Unfortunately, nature could not heal Nelson’s leg, and it eventually had to be amputated. He is now doing well and thankfully is no longer in pain. Because of your donations, he made a complete recovery and was adopted to a wonderful, loving home. The Nelson Cheddar fund was created to help animals with expensive medical needs. Won’t you help other cats and dogs like Nelson Cheddar get a second chance at life? With your donation to the Nelson Cheddar fund, you can help more animals just like him. Please consider donating to the Nelson Cheddar fund.
