Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Chesapeake Humane Society supports the residents of Chesapeake and the city’s homeless and owned animals by providing high quality, low cost spay/neuter, vaccinations, pet medications, adoptions and behavior help. In addition we provide medical treatment to shelter animals in immediate need and facilitate off-site adoptions on behalf of Chesapeake Animal Services increasing the Live Release Rate of animals from the City shelter. In 2013, we touched the lives of more than 4,000 animals.
About Our Rescue Group:Our Mission: The Chesapeake Humane Society works to promote the welfare of companion animals through programs and initiatives that reduce pet overpopulation, increase adoptions and encourage responsible pet guardianship through affordable pet care.
Our vision is to help pets and the people who love them find each other and stay together.
Come Meet our Pets:Please refer to the monthly calendar on our website for the most up to date schedule for adoption outings, spay/neuter/vaccine clinics, and fundraisers.
Our Adoption Process:You are welcome to visit the animals in our boutique shelter on a walk-in basis Tuesday through Thursday 8AM to 4PM. Saturday through Monday meetings are done by appointment at this time. Please feel free to call or email for an appointment to meet our adoptable pets.
We pride ourselves on offering one-on-one private adoption counseling. Once you have completed your adoption application (available at our front desk) an adoption counselor will contact you for a private interview.
Our adoption fees and requirements vary based on each individual animals needs. We work hand-in-hand with our adoption clients and hand-in-paw with our pets to make the best adoption matches.
In spite of our efforts, we understand that sometimes relationships fail. If at any time an adopter needs assistance with their new family member or finds it necessary to return their companion animal, we will respectfully work with that client to determine the best outcome for the animal.
