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 Adopt-a-Pet feed or visit our Adopt-a-Pet 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 1 year): $150, Cats: $75, Cats 9 years of age and older: $50 – includes spay/neuter, rabies vaccine and FVRCP vaccine appropriate to age, FIV/FeLV combo test, senior bloodwork for cats 9+, ProBNP for cats 9+, de-worming, flea/tick treatment, microchip and registration, and veterinary exam.
