Adopt a Pet

bluepaw_03 ADOPT A PET

Chesapeake Humane Society has many adoptable pets looking for their forever homes. Our cats are free-roaming within the adoption center so it’s easy to drop by to see their personalities. All of our dogs are in loving foster homes. Please scroll down to view our adoptable pets on our Petfinder feed or visit our Petfinder page.

Our adoption fees (listed below) help to cover a fraction of the cost of providing food, shelter, and veterinary care for our adoptable pets. CHS does not profit from these adoption fees.

Kittens (Less than 6 months): $100, Cats: $75 – includes spay/neuter, rabies vaccine, FVRCP vaccine, FIV/FeLV combo test, de-worming, flea/tick treatment, and veterinary exam.

Puppies and Dogs: $175 – includes spay/neuter, rabies vaccine, distemper vaccine, heartworm test, de-worming, flea/tick treatment, veterinary exam, and introductory class at Happy Paws Humane Pet Training Center.

How to Adopt a Pet

Step 1: Determine the pet that is best for your lifestyle. Since your new pet will be with you for the rest of its life, this is an important commitment that should not be rushed! If needed, our adoption counselors are happy to guide you and help you find your perfect fit.

Step 2: Select your pet and complete the  adoption application. Filling out an application does not obligate you to adopt. Submit your application online or at the Humane Society.

Step 3: Once your application is approved, we can schedule any additional meet-and-greets (if needed).

Step 4: Provide a loving new home for your new addition to the family!  We encourage you to keep in touch with us – we love receiving updates and if you ever need advice, we are here to help!

I'm quite the character. As you can see I do have a trick up my sleeve, of course, you will have to offer me treats for me to perform. I am okay with other cats. I do require a urinary specific cat food but it is over the counter so not cost prohibitive.

  • Special Needs
Meet Miss Ruby! She has been in foster care for a few months and after taking care of some medical things 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. If you need additional info you can email adoptions@chesapeakehumane.org.

How can you resist this face. Ariel is a bit of a work in progress. She is a bit overwhelmed with all the cats in the cattery. When she is out when all the other cats are up she is an incredible sweet, loving girl. If you think you'd like a project kitty please make arrangements to come and meet her when you can have her one on one. You won't be sorry.

I was abandoned on the porch here last December. I was adopted on New Year's Eve. Now I'm back. Evidently there were some issues in my adopted home that upset me. The folks here have helped me get back to my old, loving self and I am hoping for a second chance with a loving, understanding adopter.
