Cat Adoption Policies

Your next family pet is waiting for you at Animal Assistance League. We specialize in cat adoptions. We're only looking for people who are serious about adoptions, so consider all factors before you make a request.

Adoptions & Donations

Dipper 01

Dipper 02

This is Dipper. He's a very lovable neutered male, about a year old. He is kinda of a special needs cat, and would need someone that is patient and gentle to take him home. We think he may have a mild case of Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH), which affects his coordination and focus at times. He can still live a full, healthy life though, just at a slower pace. He loves people , and thrives on attention. He would make a great cat for a single person, or a couple...younger kids would probably not be a good match for him. He loves others cats, although sometimes they lose their patience with him. If you are able to take on a special needs cat, and be willing to put a tiny bit of effort into it, Dipper will be your friend for life.

Contact our animal shelter in Chesapeake, Virginia, for dogs and cats that make great pets.

About Us

Improve your life and that of a cat, too, with adoptions from our animal shelter in Chesapeake, Virginia. The Animal Assistance League (AAL) was formed in response to the vast number of animals put to death each year by local shelters. We adhere to the philosophy that no adoptable animal should be euthanized. We are caring and compassionate and show deep concern for animals.

We Depend on You

Our animal shelter is a privately funded, nonprofit organization that receives no taxpayer money. This is why we depend on members and donors to help us fund our services.
