Although we try to keep our website as updated as possible, we highly recommend coming in to view all our available animals. We recommend that all members of the home come in so our team can best match you with your next companion.
Please be patient. We are experiencing staff shortages, please be patient with our staff as we do our best to find homes for all the shelter animals.
What is the adoption process?
Complete an adopter profile at the shelter (2100 S Military Hwy) so our team can help best place the right pet for your home.
Renters are encouraged to discuss their intention to adopt a pet with their landlord prior to adoption.
CAS requires rabies vaccinations and City licenses on any pets they currently own before adopting a new pet.
If adopting a dog and you have a resident dog, we may require a meet and greet prior to adoption. Please leave your pet at home until we find a potential companion for you.
Present a valid identification showing your current residence.
Sign an adoption contract promising to keep the animal only as a pet and to abide by the laws for the control and protection of animals. All adopted dogs and cats must be spayed or neutered prior to release unless there is a medical reason why surgery cannot be done at that time.

Adopters must be 18 or older with a valid ID. Adopters and anyone living in the same household may not be convicted of animal cruelty, neglect, or abandonment. Chesapeake Animal Services Unit reserves the right to refuse adoptions that are not in the best interest of the animal or community.
