The very nature of a chessie causes most to struggle in the ordinary shelter environment; thus it is not a safe place for the majority of chessies. Coming into Chesapeake Safe Harbor, they will be shown Trust & Respect. They will receive the understanding, care and training from a family devoted to this special breed.
Whatever the reason for needing a new start in life, Chesapeake Safe Harbor will provide each chessie with its individual needs – loving care, vet attention and rehabilitation as needed to enhance his chances of finding an appropriate new home where he can do his job as custodian of this home and family.
Chesapeake Safe Harbor also acts as a referral service to our national network of volunteers, and is continually available for education of the public about this great breed.
