Willie came to us a terrified and mistrusting boy who had been labeled aggressive. After only a few minuets in the care of our staff it was incredibly clear that he had been misjudged.
Willie has been working very hard on his confidence and social skills. Although he is still timid when meeting new people he is learning to trust humans. Willie has never had an issue with other dogs and plays well with others.
Willie is looking for a home that understands shy dogs and can continue to work with him on being brave. He would do better with a companion dog who is also confident, but could go to any experienced home.
This stunning boy is Jasper. He is a beautiful young shepherd who is loving the freedom of wide open pastures here in Catlett, and has recently discovered the joy of TOYS! Jasper came to us underweight and looking to find someone to show him love. He has been gaining weight nicely and learning to socialize with other dogs well. He is great with females and calmer males but would do better without another dominant dog. He is a good boy who will need someone to continue his basic training and show him how to be a good citizen in a home. He is a high energy love bug who will keep you laughing for years. Schedule a visit to meet this happy, exuberant puppy.
Charlotte has spent her life as a hunting hound, and is ready to retire and enjoy the plush life of being a house pet. Charlotte is incredibly well mannered with other dogs and is gentle when playing. Her calm confidence is very endearing and she will make a great addition to families of all sizes, ages and level of dog experience. Charlotte loves to curl up on her bed and snooze, she happily goes for a walk but does not need a ton of exercise to keep her calm and content.
She has not ever lived in a home, but is not destructive or stressed in her kennel so we think transition into pet life will be easy for her. Please consider adding the grace and dignity of Charlotte to your family.
Jackson is an energetic little hound mix who recently joined the Chance Foundation from a rural shelter in West Virginia, where hound dogs are disposable. He is loving being indoors, well fed and exercised here, but will really shine as a member of a loving, active family. He gets along with most dogs and is happy to play all day!
Jasper is a happy boy who just wants to fill someones life with as much joy as possible. Although he will need to find someone who can continue his basic training, he is a smart boy who will learn quickly. Jasper would love to have a doggy brother or sister to play with, but is also happy to be your one and only.
Dixie is a very sweet and submissive terrier mix. She loves everyone she meets - people and dogs! She loves to play, but most of all loves her belly rubs. Dixie is still a baby and will need a home to help her grow into the best girl she can be. We are looking for someone who can be home a larger portion of the day and would prefer a fenced in yard. You will be happy to hear that she is crate trained, learning her basic commands, and appears to be potty trained! This smart cookie is well on her way to being a happy, well behaved adult... but not too soon!
Capri is a bouncy and social little bundle of energy. Capri loves to run and play with her many new kennel friends, in fact, she is usually the last one back inside, stretching the play time as far as she can. Capri has never been a house pet before, so she will need someone to help her learn how to be on her best behavior. If her stunning blue eyes don't make you fall in love, her sweet personality will. Capri will do best in an active home where Capri can get the exercise and play time she desires. Come out and meet this little charming beauty and fall in love like the rest of us have!
Buck is an high-energy hound mix who recently came to us from a rural West Virginia shelter. He is working very hard on learning proper inside dog behavior, and is very smart and picking up his lessons easily. He will excel with a family that can continue working with him on his basic commands, and giving him plenty of exercise and play time. Buck is great with other dogs and loves to play fetch. Please schedule a time to come visit Buck, who will keep you smiling for years to come.
Bobby the handsome petite beagle rececntly arrived here in Catlett from a rural shelter in West Virginia. We've been enjoying our time getting to know this happy, sweet boy who loves treats, playing with stuffed toys, and cuddling. When he first arrived, this sweet boy was emaciated and balding. He had flea dermatitis and infected ears, but despite all of his misfortune, he has maintained a sparkling personality and kind temperament.
Bobby is gaining weight nicely and loves the company of other dogs. while his hair will take some time to grow back in he is healthy and looking for a home as nice as he is. Bobby has never been an inside dog so he will need a home that does not mind teaching him how to be loved. This training will be made easier by his love of cookies! He is a smart boy who would do well with other dogs, kids, or even as an only pet.
Elvis, the sweet, soulful, gentle boy came to our rescue emaciated and terrified of his surroundings. This poor boy had been worked hard and dumped at a rural shelter for a horrible fate.
Despite his prior treatment Elvis does not have a mean bone in his body. He has gained some much needed weight and is now learning how nice humans can be. Elvis loves structure and a regular routine, he does what he's asked and remembers the schedule.
This handsome hound is also great with other dogs and tends to be more confident with a buddy. He is calm, gentle and looking for a cuddle sweet family to love him.
Because of his nervous tendencies he is looking for a home with a fence but with time he will adapt well.
Saniya Is an incredibly social and sweet girl. She loves to play with other dogs, but always checks in with her human friends while out playing.
She is working hard already on her basic training like sit, stay, and her leash manners, but this smart girl is catching on quickly. Saniya will do well with an active family who will take her on long walks or to the dog park. She is a sweet girl with a healthy appetite for fun. Please schedule a time to meet Saniya at our facility in Catlett so she can show you all she has learned!
Sassy and Jazzy are a super sweet and mellow mother and daughter duo in search of a loving home together. They are a little timid at 1st when meeting new people but warm up quickly. It won't be long before they are begging to be carried around. They are 1 and 3 years old, in great health, and could both fit in one handbag! These pint sized beauties would be the perfect addition to a family who has the patience to help these lovely ladies get comfortable with their new surroundings. Adopting a pair of dogs also has it's perks, as they will keep each other occupied and calm when you are busy.
Thomas has had his fair share of neglect. When this sweet boy came into our care he had a horribly infected eye ulceration that required specialty care, in addition he also had both patella's repaired. He was dirty and had a bunch of hair missing.
Thomas did not have it easy, despite all of that he is incredibly kind. Thomas in about 80% blind and almost completely deaf. however he does not snap or startle easily.
This sweet boy is looking for someone to love him for his remaining years. Thomas LOVES cookies and enjoys being brushed. He is not an incredibly active boy so a cozy place to nap and a good chewie is all he asks for. Thomas does receive pain relievers for some arthritis in his front legs but is on no other long term medication.
This golden dog deserves a home a sweet as his soul. please contact us if you could be his perfect family.
Possum came to us because she was so afraid of people at the shelter no one could handle her. after being tucked into a plush dog bed and given a couple treats she began to warm up. Quickly Possum discovered laps are the place to be. Possum loves attention but does become fearful when she feels rushed or forced. once she is in your arms or lap she relaxes into the sweet little girl that we know she is.
Possum is progressing nicely with her socialization. We would lover her to go to a home that can continue to set her up to succeed, so an experienced home is preferred. She does well with other dogs but is also happy to be the center of attention.
Denzel is a stunning Lab x Mastiff. This stunning boy had a rough start to life as an outside dog who was neglected and ignored. Thankfully he no longer has to spend another day alone. Denzel is wonderfully mannered with people, he walks well on leash, keeps all four feet on the ground, and is not a stressy boy in his "room" at the kennel.
Denzel is working on his social skills with other dogs, although other dogs will be case by case he does not actively peruse other animals. So walking him in the neighborhood will not be difficult for his new family
Denzel did receive a double Cherry-eye surgery just before arriving. Since his surgery all has healed well and he does not need daily eye meds.
Please contact for updates or more information on Denzel
Taurus is a wonderfully obedient boy who has spent many years with us at our kennel. Taurus is looking for a dog experienced owner who understands his quirks.
Taurus is not blind but is severely vision impaired, and can only see directly in front of him and not to the sides. thankfully it does not affect him day to day, but we only set him up for success, never failure.
Taurus can be insecure of multiple in his space but is not outwardly aggressive, but should never be left unattended with small children.
Taurus is also incredibly social with other dogs, he does enjoy to play. He is also part fish, this boy could live in a pond or a pool.
Isotope - I am a 5 year old, sweet, elegant lab mix who has found herself in need of a new, loving home after my parents had a baby. I used to be the baby of the family and just didn't adjust well to the new 2-legged baby taking up a lot of my attention! I know all my obedience commands, get along great with other dogs, am well mannered and housebroken. I would do best in a home with adults or older children as the young toddlers make me a bit nervous.
Look at this cutie! PePe is a 10lb Papillion/ Jack Russell mix that is full of energy! PePe is great with other dogs of all sizes. Pepe is a lover once you get to know him, but can be a bit defensive when meeting new people, because of this a home with no small children is best.
Pepe needs a firm, but understanding owner who does not mind his quirks.
Our Resident Sanctuary Dog
RIP Howard aka "Howie", 2004-2018
For 12 perfect years Howard was a member of our family. Howard was incredibly protective of his family and found himself in some trouble as a sassy 3 year old. We vowed as a team to keep Howie safe and the only way to do that was to keep him with his CCK&T Family.
The day he left us there was not a heart left unbroken among the staff and volunteers of the CCK family.
Howard lived like a king in our kennel and his incredible personality and ability to love will never be forgotten.
Howie meant so much to our team here, He was the best listener and many of us would use him as a shoulder to cry on. He was also incredibly protective of his family, we never felt unsafe with him around. But best of all Howie had a heart bigger than anyone could imagine. His love had no limits.
Our family lost not only our Shining Star, but our therapist, body guard, and our Best friend.
See you over the rainbow one day, until then.... We love you Howard.
