Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Chesapeake Humane Society supports the residents of Chesapeake and surrounding cities 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 residence with us on a walk-in basis Tuesday through Saturday 10AM to 4PM. Sunday and Monday meetings are done by appointment only. Please feel free to call or email for an appointment to meet our adoptable pets.

The pets kept in residence are for the most part feline. If you are interested in meeting one of our canine adoption candidates an appointment must be made with their foster parent for a meeting.

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.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
