Shelter Happenings

Super Seniors to the Rescue!  Super Cats to the Rescue!

Cape Ann Animal Aid is proud to announce the launch of a new adoption program designed to find homes for older cats. The Super Seniors Cat Adoption Program waives the adoption fee of all cats ages six years and older in an effort to promote their adoption and decrease their time spent waiting for a home. The program was made possible in part thanks to a generous grant from Lil BUB’s Big Fund for the ASPCA which goes towards medical care for these senior cats, helping us put their best paw forward.

See our line-up of Super-Duper Senior Cats!

Volunteer Favorite: Buster Brown

Look at that smile! Buster does tricks!

We love all of the animals here at our Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter. But sometimes, staff and volunteers find themselves with a favorite. Volunteer, Karen A., has a soft spot for 8 year old Min Pin, Buster Brown:

“You won’t find a cuter or more enthusiastic little buddy. Always eager to play, Buster Brown will jump through hoops for you! He’s smart enough to learn lots of new tricks and will curl up and snuggle at the end of the day!”

Buster Brown has been waiting for his fur-ever home for over 110 days now. To help this cutie get adopted, we’ve waived his adoption fee.

Rocky’s Field TripRocky

Here at our Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter, our dedicated staff and volunteers spend lots of quality time with the dogs and cats to make their stay as enriching as possible. As part of these efforts, one of our pups with special adoption needs, named Rocky, enjoyed a field trip to Stacey Blvd. in Gloucester and we caught it all on film!
See the Field Trip video on our Facebook page

Painting Info Requested-

  Recently I purchased a painting of Annisquam Lighthouse dated 1901 and signed C E Dennison.  In my internet search your name popped up, yet the century is way off.  Are you by chance related to this artist?  If so, can you provide any biographical information about his career.  it would be much appreciated.
