About CCAD

Chesapeake Cats and Dogs (CCAD) is a lifetime haven and no-kill animal rescue organization dedicated to rehabilitating and providing a second chance for cats and dogs that have been abandoned, abused, lost, strayed, or surrendered.  Our organization was formed in 2006, and consists of a group of dedicated volunteers working to achieve our goal of providing a life of love and dignity to all animals. We have successfully placed more than 2,000 homeless cats and dogs in loving homes.


CCAD remains committed to helping end the needless overpopulation, death, abuse, and neglect of dogs and cats in our area and improving their lives. We work diligently to locate loving and responsible owners who wish to make their new pets members of their family—forever! Though our base of operations is Queenstown on Maryland’s eastern shore, CCAD has had country-wide impact in placing homeless animals into loving homes.


CCAD is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization and does not receive any government funding but relies solely upon the generosity of the public. Most of our adoption and fundraising events are held in Queen Anne,  Anne Arundel, Talbot, and Caroline counties. We operate under the supervision of a Board of Directors which is comprised of all volunteer positions.

Please note that our Sanctuary location only houses ADULT CATS! Foster homes are used for DOGS and KITTENS!
