Animals Available for Adoption
Beginning Monday May 18th, Chesapeake Animal Services will begin the first phase of reopening to the public by resuming adoptions! The first phase of reopening comes with the following restrictions:
- No more than 10 people will be allowed into the building at a time.
- Four or less people per group.
- Staff will be on hand to control the flow of people into the building and direct visitors.
- If you are sick, or have been in contact with anyone who has been sick, please refrain from visiting the shelter.
- Masks are not required, but definitely recommended.
- We do ask, while inside the shelter, you make every effort to maintain social distancing with other visitors and our staff.
We are excited to begin seeing life return to normal, but realize there will be some growing pains with the transition. Please be patient with our staff as we attempt to navigate the new normal.
The Snout and About Field Trip Program will remain closed and new volunteer applications will not be processed until further notice.
Foster Families Needed
We are still looking for people interested in taking animals home to foster. Families looking to foster must complete the foster application first. We supply everything to care for the animal. We just ask that they supply the love.
Lost and Stray Animals
If you are missing your pet, first view the strays in custody to look for your pet. Whether you see your animal listed or not, please contact the shelter during business hours (8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday).
Surrender of Animals
Surrenders are still by appointment only and need will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Please call the shelter at 757-382-8081 to talk to our staff about scheduling an appointment.
Form more information on any of the above information, call 757-382-8080 (press 1).
