Congratulations on your decision to adopt! Chesapeake Humane Society has many adoptable cats looking for their forever home. Our cats are free-roaming so it's easy to interact with each one of them and see their personalities. Come by and just visit with them or find the one that connects with you to bring home! You can view our adoptable pets on our Petfinder page.


Step 1: Determine the pet that is best for your lifestyle.
Browse through the helpful topics at the right and determine what type of pet will be most compatible with your family. Since your new pet will be with you for the rest of its life, this is an important commitment that should not be rushed into!

Step 2: Select your pet and complete adoption paperwork.
All adoptable animals are available to be seen at on Petfinder. Once you select your pet, you can fill out an adoption application.

Step 3:
Provide a loving new home for your new addition to the family! We require that you schedule a wellness exam for your new companion within two weeks of adoption. This insures that your new pet is healthy and helps to establish a relationship with your vet and your new pet.
