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!
Now we need your help. We are fundraising here to complete the interior trim, painting, cabinetry, vinyl flooring. and a handicap-accessible ramp. Please click here to help!
Princess Jazz is a 6 year old diabetic Cairn Terrier who fit right in to her foster home with 2 permanent canine residents. She is a very sweet girl who loves toys, is good on a leash, is house-trained, and sleeps well at night. She is about 6 years old, weighs about 15 pounds, and is diabetic so needs insulin shots 2x/day (she accepts this without complaint!).

MICKEY:Adult male Beagle/Boston mix
Mickey is a seven year old Beagle/Boston mix who was rescued from a hoarding situation. He has been fully vetted including a dental and is a healthy little love bug. At 16 pounds, he could use some good food, a comfortable bed, and lots of attention. He would be happiest as the center of attention, but does get along with other dogs. Cats are an unknown, but he does need to go to a home without children.
Cassie Olive is a sweet little girl, looking for attention and love. She has a short tail that just adds to her charm! She would make a wonderful addition to your home and she is hoping you choose her!
Fadie is a chatty and affectionate darling of a cat who dreams of once again being in a home of her own… Can you make her dream come true? Fadie came from a home with children, and she is also comfortable with the other cats in our adoption center.
FANCY:Adult female American Bulldog
Fancy is a fabulous girl who is sweet with people and eager to learn. Sadly, she has grown up in a kennel, and she needs training and an understanding person. She will do best in a home with no other dogs.
We are finally ready to move forward on our Tree of Life Pet Sanctuary project, and we need YOUR help!
On Saturday June 25th and Sunday June 26th from 8am until mid-afternoon we’ll be working again at the Sanctuary. There is a wide variety of small and large jobs to tackle, both inside the house and outside on the grounds. Please consider giving some time this weekend to help move the Sanctuary forward. The sooner we are able to get the place ready for occupancy, the sooner we will be able to relocate!
If you are unavailable to help on our Sanctuary work days, please consider supporting our efforts to build a new home for our cats and dogs by making a donation. Thank you for your support!
Chesapeake Cats and Dogs is a 501C(3) non-profit lifetime haven and no-kill animal rescue organization. CCAD formed in 2006 and consists of a dedicated group of volunteers "working to provide a life of love and dignity for all animals". When we take in an animal, they are with us until we can place them in a good, loving home. To accomplish our mission, we rely on regular adoptions, donations, and volunteers!
TREE OF LIFE PET SANCTUARY:
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. Please click here to learn more or click here to donate.
