This beautiful girl needs a name! 🥰

She came to the shelter as a stray a month ago with her kittens who have since been weaned. She's ready for a new name and a new start on life! She's shy but friendly, quiet yet playful...

So give us your best suggestions...or even better, come in today between 12 and 4 and take her home. :)

While almost everyone loves Fall 🍂 and the beautiful weather it brings 🎃, here is some great information from EVELYN'S WILDLIFE REFUGE regarding some not so lovely parts of the season that our local wildlife deals with.

#CASloveYOURshelter #AdoptCAS #WildlifeWednesday

Its Autumn so while squirrels and other critters scurry about transferring nuts/food from one hiding place to another, you may notice some with unusual looking skin lumps. Thats because they are unknowingly carrying a parasite, which tunnels through the flesh, causing swollen protrusions, known as a botfly.
A botfly is any fly in the Oestridae family. Botfly larvae are internal parasites of mammals, some species growing in the host's flesh and others within the gut. The word "bot" in this sense means a maggot. Bot flies undergo complete metamorphosis, which consists of an egg, larva, pupa and adult.
Although squirrels are some of the most visible hosts, other animals such as dogs, cats, raccoons, rabbits and chipmunks may also be infested with bot flies.
Because these larvae are natural parasites found in nature, there are no treatments or precautions available. And no need for concern about spreading larvae from one infested squirrel to other squirrels because the larvae are developing inside the host and are not contagious.
Basically what happens is squirrels come into contact with a botfly egg, which attaches itself to their fur. The egg hatches the larvae where it migrates to a site under the mammals skin or in some cases through its nose or mouth. That’s when they start to grow, and in the process create a cocoon, which scientists have dubbed warbles.
The warbles look like a mosquito bite with an opening that’s large enough to see the worm. It can take weeks or even months for the botfly to finish growing to then pop out of the warble and fall to the ground, where it metamorphoses into a pupa—the stage right before adulthood. The pupal stage overwinters buried in soil and requires about eight to 10 months before emerging as an adult. Once the bot fly reaches sexual maturity, it’s off in search of a new host to house its wormy offspring.
Though the wounds may look fatal, botflies usually doesnt kill their hosts. However, if an injured or orphaned animal that is infested with larvae requires care from a wildlife rehabilitator or veterinarian, the larvae often are removed. The empty warble may be flushed with an antiseptic, followed by application of antibiotics. Empty warbles typically heal within a week or so after a larva has exited its warble naturally or has been removed.
I have attached a picture of a squirrel with squirrel pox because warbles can be confused for the pox but they are noticeably different.

****** Something that is VERY important. Only skilled rehabbers or vets should attempt to extract bots. If the larvae's body is compromised inside the host, anaphylactic shock and possible death is possible. These guys have something like legs that will "dig in" the host in an effort to prevent removal. Caution should still be exercised during removal even if the bot is dead.***

OH NO!

Due to an outbreak of kennel cough among our shelter dogs, we have made the difficult decision to briefly suspend dog visitations and adoptions. This is to help control the spread of kennel cough, not only among our shelter pets, but our communities pets as well. You can continue to see all our adoptable pets online at www.cityofchesapeake.net/animalservices and keep an eye on our FB page for when we have the all clear for adoptions to resume.

Even more importantly...if you are missing a dog do not wait to come in and look! We are still allowing those searching for their lost dogs and cats to enter the kennels. We just ask you sanitize before and after and do not touch any pets while in the kennels.

Thank you for your understanding in our attempts to keep the pets as healthy as possible while they are here. :)

Brady is just about the nicest boy around!

If there's anything he likes more than head rubs and scratches, we don't know what it is. He loves affection and stays close to you at all times...just in case you wanna let him know just how good he is with some more of those amazing head pats and back scratches.

Brady is the complete package...handsome and loving! He is welcoming visitors from 12-4 today. Visit and see what all the fuss is about with this amazing boy. Brady came to us as a stray, so his past experiences are unknown.

Meet Koni!

Koni is a very gentle and sweet girl. She LOVES walking on a leash and is so eager to please! Koni enjoys car rides and would love to have a family to hang out with. She is a little overweight...but aren't we all?! 😆 Regular exercise and a lot less treats will get her a beach body by next spring! 👙

Her beautiful smile and sweet disposition has earned her a spot as a volunteer favorite. 🥰

Come in and visit with Koni today...but leave the treats at home😂🐾

Wanting to help during this pandemic, but not sure how? CAS is in need of FELIWAY for our shelter cats! 😺

A shelter can be a stressful environment for many animals. It's unfamiliar, crowded and noisy at times. Many animals take the change in stride and we do the best we can to make their stay here as comfortable as possible. FELIWAY goes a long way to helping the 😸 who just aren't handling the change well. Especially cats like Penelope. She was scared and lashing out, making handling her difficult. Spraying some Feliway on her bedding, or our hands, made an amazing difference in helping her relax. She is now allowing staff to handle her much more easily and is the wonderful cat we knew she could be. 😻

**Amazon was able to get our wishlist back up and working...here's the link to order Feliway and have it shipped direct to CAS.**

Chesapeake Animal Services is asking for your help!

Just prior to 8 this morning a call for a young dog dumped in the area of Forest Haven Lane and Ashland Drive came in through our dispatch center. A witness was able to contain the dog and transport to The COVE for safe keeping until an Animal Control Officer could respond. The witness stated the dog was dumped by a white female driving a silver/tan SUV type vehicle. The dog is a white and black, intact male, bully breed type dog. Appears to be approximately 6 months of age. Thankfully the dog was not injured and Animal Control Officers are investigating.

This dog is not yet available for adoption. Unless further information is obtained, he will be available on Sept 29th.

If you have any information on this incident, please call the shelter at 757-382-8080 or email [email protected].

Sienna is a sweet and saucy girl who would love to find a home who appreciates her opinions on life. She tells it like it is and doesn't hold back!

Sienna is VERY affectionate and outgoing. Full of purrs and head rubs...she is the first to meet visitors at the colony room door, she will be the one waiting for you after a long day of work. Vent to her, she will gladly give you advice on how to handle whatever life has thrown at you. Sienna gets along great with the other cats in our colony room and would do just fine in a home with older kids. Dogs...well as long as they do as she says, then they will likely get along just fine!

Visit with Sienna or any of our other fabulous felines between 12 and 6 today.

Behavioral issues, such as soiling outside the litter box, is one of the top reasons why cats find themselves in animal shelters all over the country. 😿 Fortunately with a little work, these issues can be remedied, especially if caught quickly. 😺 Our goal is to help owners be more successful in creating a happy and healthy environment for their pets. If you are currently having issues with a cat soiling outside the litter box, first step is a visit to your vet to check for medical issues. Once kitty has the all clear from your vet, the following resource may be of some help.

***ADOPTED***

Winter isn't coming, she's been here! One of our longest residents, she has been here since August 4th. 😯
This girl has waited so patiently for her family. She is a sweet 😺 who keeps getting over looked due to being a bit of a wallflower. Winter has so much to offer her family, if they would just give her a chance. She will curl into your arms and purr away. Winter also adores other cats and would love a home with another feline companion to help her learn how to be the best house cat. She is still just a baby at about 6 months old and is ready to go home with her family today.
