We are a small 100% Volunteer run rescue located in Chesapeake, VA. We focus on small scale but quality adoptions. We generally only have 1 or 2 dogs at a time which allows our volunteers to get to know each dog. Our goal is to find the perfect match for each family. We offer a trial period to all of our adoptions. To get started check out our adoption process and policies by clicking here.
