Our Mission

As a foster–based 501(c)(3) non-profit, Chesapeake Rescue Alliance protects animals in the Chesapeake Bay area and beyond. We connect animals in need to safe homes and facilitate their access to quality veterinary care. The rescue also provides foster, adoption, mandatory spay/neuter, trap-neuter-return, education and outreach services to support the well-being of animals within the community at-large. This organization emphasizes transparency and integrity while providing educational resources to support the humane treatment of animals.

The Team

Chesapeake Rescue Alliance is entirely made up of volunteers working out of various locations all across the Chesapeake Bay area. At its core, CRA is a community-based people organization which strongly values passion, teamwork, and healthy communication during all volunteer activities. We seek to foster this culture by rotating positions routinely.

This facilitates cross-training of skills, allowing each volunteer to develop both an understanding of all roles available as well as fluency in multiple positions. Not only does this distribute power and minimize risk for the organization, but it also allows all volunteers to gain exposure to multiple roles to ensure teammates can continuously engage and contribute in a way they find personally fulfilling. We are always looking for more teammates. To join, please fill out an application or email us at admin@chesapeakerescue.org.
