The mission of this group, with the support of
members of the Chessie e-mail lists, is to array the members of CBR Relief & Rescue,
breed clubs, breeders and fanciers into a rescue network to assist in rescue of purebred
Chesapeake Bay Retrievers.
Chesapeake Bay Retriever Relief & Rescue will provide
ongoing information and support to interested people, clubs, breeders and fanciers to
ensure the humane and effective rescue of any CBR in need. This is a volunteer effort
created solely for the welfare and protection of the Chesapeake Bay Retriever breed.
As devotees of the Chesapeake Bay Retriever, we hope for, support
and encourage the effort of clubs, organizations and individuals to rescue
adoptable, purebred dogs from animal shelters, owners who no longer care for their dogs in
a responsible way, or strays found wandering at large. Additionally, we hope to provide a
forum where responsible breeders can list returned dogs.
We are dedicated to finding responsible and loving
homes for Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. Our goal is to educate the public, breeders
and fanciers on responsible dog ownership including spaying and neutering of pets,
behavioral guidelines to ensure problem behaviors are dealt with before the dog
is abandoned and to inform prospective CBR owners of the special qualities,
characteristics and requirements of our breed before they acquire a Chesapeake
Bay Retriever. With proper education, we hope to eventually eliminate the
purebred Chesapeake Bay Retriever from any and all rescue programs. It is imperative as
owners of Chesapeake Bay Retrievers that we make every effort to care for our own
