Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescued Chesapeake Bay Retriever.
There are wonderful Chessies looking for new homes at any given time across the country.

Our rescue is comprised wholly of hard-working volunteers whose only reward is seeing these wonderful Chessies in loving homes, given a second chance for a happy life. We try our best to match our rescue dogs with the perfect home. While we are dedicated to this goal, there is no guarantee we will have the perfect fit for every home.
