Facts about Ruby

  • Breed: Chihuahua Mix
  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut - With White
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Meet Miss Ruby! She has been in foster care for a few month now having some medical issues attended to. She is now ready to find her new home. She is a senior girl, we think about 10 years old or so. She was found stray and originally housed at Chesapeake Animal Services. We transferred her from the shelter after her stray hold was up and with their financial assistance had an extremely large bladder stone removed, had her spayed, and a benign mammary mass removed. She will require a diet appropriate for a dog with bladder stones and a guardian willing and able to provide the medical monitoring she will require.

Ruby is in a foster home. As such, potential adopters must have an approved application prior to meeting Ruby.

About Chesapeake Humane Society

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.
