Chesapeake Cats and Dogs: A life of love and dignity for all animals

Goldie is RUSHING to find a home of her own!


Goldie is adorably affectionate and just loves to cuddle, but she can become overwhelmed by stress around other cats or around children. In a home of her own, she could relax and be herself—a consummate cuddle-bug who would be a great companion for someone! Please call 410-643-9955 for more information about adopting Goldie or click here to apply!

“My name is Princess Too! I came from a local humane society. I am three years old and had kittens this spring. My kittens are in a CCAD foster home. I’ve been spayed so I am now ready to find my new home! I am a domestic medium hair dilute tortoiseshell, and if I do say so myself—I am just about the sweetest and most easy-going cat ever! I am a Princess because I’m just so pretty, but I will treat you like you’re royalty, promise! Come meet me!”
SIGNORA “SIGGY”: 8 year old female pit

Signora “Siggy” is a beautiful loving amazing 8 year old pitty girl. She is in rescue, through no fault of her own. She is a little shy, but she is very open and trusting. She needs a special home, because she is a special girl. Her care-giver prays every day that her family is out there looking for her. She will be so grateful when Sig finds her forever home!
