Providing consistent, high-quality care to hundreds of animals in the Chesapeake area requires large amounts of food, litter, medication and equipment. We rely on generous donations from the community to maintain this supply. There are multiple ways to give to Chesapeake Rescue Alliance! Monetary donations, donations of good and donations of services all directly enable us to better help out our local animal community. We accept anything from animal food and grooming supplies to grants, and even donations of land and vehicles. For a list of our most common needs items, please check out our wish lists on and Our fosters are always in need of these products, which are shipped directly to us with no inconvenience to you. As always, 100% of all donations received are guaranteed to go directly to the continued support of local dogs and cats in need!

Monetary donations* can be made through any of the portals listed below. For more more unique donations, or donations that require a physical drop-off of products to a CRA volunteer, please reach out to us at
