Pet of the Week- Buddy


Are you looking for a sweet and bashful fellow? A true lover at heart with a mellow nature? A boy that gets along with others and has a playful side? Well we might be purr-fect for each other! 

I am a rescue from outdoors. Some sweet souls took me in after I had been hanging about for months and their home was already filled with pets so they didn’t have a permanent spot for me but they made sure I was cared for, safe and loved until I got my chance to come to the shelter. I have lived outdoors and as a Tom cat I did my share of adventuring and I am happy and confident to say that is out of my system!

 As a result of those reckless days of my youth I am FIV positive so considered a Special needs adoption. Many cats live long healthy lives with FIV especially if kept indoors and healthy. FIV affects the immune system so makes me more susceptible to colds, virus and other disease. Life is a gamble any way you look at it. Ready to roll the dice on me?

Pet of the Week-Jasper


Jasper here. I am happy to meet you and why yes, I would love to join you for a stroll. Snacks? But of course, one of my favorite things to do is nibble and lounge. I am an affectionate boy with a true Shih Tzu nature and heart. 

 I am looking for a dog savvy home, one who isn’t going to let me take over the couch but will teach me that when invited I can share what is theirs. Life is all about lessons and compromise and I am ready for my turn to learn and find the perfect match for me. I am looking for an adult home, preferably one that adores Shih Tzu’s! I tend to guard high value items. So no bones for this boy! I am also considered a Special Needs adoption because I also have a hypothyroid. I take one pill 2 x a day and I’m A OK! If you think you could fill the empty space in my life then what are you waiting for? 

 Hurry on in and let’s get to getting to know each other right away! To see all available animals at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter please visit our website: capeannanimalaid.org.

Pet of the week-Chrisley


Hello my name is Chrisley and I am a sweet, playful Husky that was lucky enough to be pulled from a kill shelter in Georgia just in time. They are guessing I am about 5 years old but I am very playful and just love people. If you are familiar with the breed and know what that involves please come on down and meet me. 

I am a smart boy and know my basic commands as well, sit, shake, and stay. When I was originally rescued from the shelter in Georgia I had been having some digestive issues. They discovered I have a little bit of acid reflux (which I am sure some of you can relate to) so I take Pepcid (famotidine) daily and that helps. I also am fed 3 meals and my digestive system seems to do well with this type of schedule. I am considered a special needs adoption because I may always have a sensitive digestive system or need additional veterinary care. I was briefly around cats and did not seem to be too interested but because of my breed, I should never be left alone with a cat. As an adult rescue without too much known about my past I am looking for a home with children 10 and older. If I seem like a good fit for your family and lifestyle please stop on by and visit.

We want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and say thank you for your continued support of our shelter.

Pet of the week-Luna


Super Senior Luna here and my super power is “Gaze of Grace.” I am a sweet lady and I enjoy gentle pets under the chin and curling up next to you for a nice long cat nap. I have a gentle soul and I can’t wait to find a home to live the rest of my days out. I am a bit shy and can take some time to get used to new places and people. So I am looking for a home with more of an adult slant (children in their teens) who understand I will need space to settle in. I am considered a special needs adoption because when I arrived here they did some bloodwork and a few of my levels were off. They spoke to the vet and he said I am just fine to be adopted out but my new family will need to follow up with their vet to re-check my bloodwork. I also had to have all my teeth extracted due to gingivitis, it has not changed my eating habits and I am much more comfortable. The folks here tell me there is no further treatment necessary for the gingivitis but they wanted my new family to be aware. Do you have the space in your home and heart for a senior lady like me?

Giving Tuesday & Pet of the week Peanut

On this #GivingTuesday don’t forget to donate to local non-profits, like Cape Ann Animal Aid! Your donations help many needy animals like Peanut below. 



Beautiful and loving Peanut here! I am a sweet lady looking for a place to call her own! Unfortunately, my family was moving and wasn’t able to take me along. Thankfully the folks here were able to take me in to find me a new home! I get a little stressed out when I move into new places and I tend to hide but once I get settled in I love attention of my humans. I have lived with a dog and another cat and didn’t seem to mind sharing my space with either. So, I wouldn’t mind having another four legged friend to share my home with.

Pet of the week- Bella

Hi! My name is Bella! I am a beautiful shepherd hound mix looking for the perfect family to pamper me! I arrived at the shelter along with my eleven puppies. Now that they have all found homes of their own, it’s my turn. I am an active girl and I’ve been spending a lot of time out in the play yard and on the trails to get my girlish figure back. I would love a family that is able to bring me on plenty of walks! I had been focusing on preparing for my puppies arrival and caring for them after their birth that I haven’t had much time to learn many tricks. I promise if you take the time to teach me I will learn. So what do you think, do I sound like a good match? I get along well with other dogs, love every person I have met so far and I have a nose for adventure!

Pet of the Week-Sapphira


Sapphira here! Pleased to meet you! I was brought to the shelter along with my siblings, Hazel and Lily, because our owner was moving and was no long able to keep us. 

I have lived with other cats and a Chihuahua and did not mind their company. I have always been an indoor cat and would prefer to be kept safe inside your home. I am a bit shy but I do enjoy petting every once and a while. I have not lived with children before so I am looking for home a home with older children (10 years or older). 

Are you ready to take me home? Then stop by and visit me today! For information on all of the animals available at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter please go to our website: capeannanimalaid.org.

Pet of the Week- Mister


Hello! Mister is my name! I am a sweet, yet shy fellow looking for the perfect family to take me home. I can be a little unsure when first meeting new people and it may take me some time to feel comfortable around you. Yet once I do, I promise to be the best snuggler you have ever met! I am a little quirky and enjoy hanging out under a blanket or bed, but it’s only because I enjoy being nice and warm. Do you have the space to take a sweet adult kitty like me home? Then stop by and visit with me today! I have FIV, which means my immune system is compromised. With someone to love and care for me, to keep me safe indoors and well fed, I have just as good a chance as the next guy to live a long and happy life. FIV makes me a “Special” adoption. I say special is right because anyone getting to take me home is one lucky human!

Pet of the Week- Ashes

I’m a Super Senior kitty with a super power that I think you’ll love…it’s the super power of “Lap Warmer”. I love to sit in your lap and sometimes I can even sway you to share a bit of the chicken from your plate with me! I do have a thyroid issue that requires medication and routine blood work so I am considered a ‘special needs’ adoption. Because I’m a senior cat, I’m looking for a quieter home with adults (no kids under 10 years). I know that I’m an older cat but I have a lot of love to give and I’d really like to spend the last chapter of my life in a loving and safe home. Can you see me fitting into your home? Then come meet me today! For more information on all of animals available at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter please visit our website: capeannanimalaid.org
 

Pet of the week- Alex


Alex here and full of energy! I love checking out new toys and going for adventures in the park, around the block, in the car and up the mountain. I am an active and intelligent little guy looking for his match in love, life and the everyday! I don’t know exactly what my breed mix is but the folks here suspect I have dachshund relatives with maybe some terrier types mixed in. I am about a year and a half old so I still have plenty of puppy energy pent up in this little body but I am maturing and I should pick up on new tricks quick! I am looking for a family with some dog experience and one with children 14 years and older. I definitely have a small dog personality and can be a little bossy but a whole lot of fun! If you like that terrier personality and enjoy training then I am your guy.

Pet of the week- Sweets


My name is Sweets and loving is my game. I was surrendered for adoption when my family sold all my puppies now, it’s my turn to be the center of attention. 

I have put all that behind me now and am looking straight ahead. I am a laid back lady looking for leisurely strolls around the neighborhood followed by a quick trip to the local Ice Cream shop where I hear most give out FREE doggie cones! I mean, come on…. who wouldn’t want that. I get along great here with other dogs and love all the staff. So if you happen to have a free couch to share come on in and see me. 

 For information on all of the available cats and dogs at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter please visit our website: capeannanimalaid.org. 

 The shelter right now is in need of “PATE STYLE” cat food. Thank you.

Pet of the week- Sashimi

I was originally rescued by the MSPCA from a hoarding situation. There were lots of us cats and all of us were feeling very shy and under-socialized so several different rescue groups and shelters worked together to find us all spots to go where we could get the extra care we would need. I and 3 of my feline family were able to come here!
As you can imagine when we first arrived we were all feeling pretty shy and overwhelmed. I took a little while to get comfortable but with lots of patience, coaxing and yummy treats I started to trust the people here and came out of my shell.
I am considered a Special Needs adoption because I have a head tremor. This tremor has been present since I arrived and has not changed at all since I have been here. I eat, sleep, play and socialize just like the other kitties only I do it with a bit of a wobble. My veterinarian can’t say for sure what is causing my head tremor without doing all sorts of special and really expensive testing but because the tremor hasn’t changed and doesn’t affect my quality of life he said I can get a chance to find a family to call my own and consider myself a Special Needs adoption candidate! I’m a quiet fellow who enjoys the finer things in life like sunny windowsills, climbing up a cat tower, playing with toys and getting attention from my people. I am looking for a family willing to take home a Special Needs animal and with my shyer nature I am looking for a home with older children or adults. I had a rough start in life and I am looking forward to a bright future with you!

Pet of the week- Mamacita


Oh my, how life has changed! I’m a sweet southern gal who found herself pregnant while living on the streets of Georgia. Thankfully, some kind people noticed my dire situation and took me in just in time. Two days later I gave birth to a litter of three in the comfort of my new friends’ home. I stayed there a bit while raising my babies, and then moved up north in search of families for myself and my young. Now that all of my babies have found homes I’ve decided it’s time for me to start searching for a place to call my own. I can be a bit shy when meeting new people, but if you show me my brush I will quickly become your new best friend. Have you noticed how well I sport my center part? If I had opposable thumbs I’d most definitely be a hair stylist. Are you in the market for a new furry best friend? Come on down to Cape Ann Animal Aid and meet me today!

For more information on the animals at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter please go to our website: capeannanimalaid.org. The shelter could use some PEDIGREE CANNED PUPPY FOOD and PATE STYLE CAT FOOD. Thank You.

Pet of the Week-Skye


Hello my name is Skye and I am a sweet Border Collie mix about 1.5 years old. 

My foster Mom says I am a total sweetheart but very energetic. I will do best in a home with lots of activity ( Maybe Agility would be good). I am crate trained and will whine a little but do very well in the crate. My foster mom says that I love lap time even though I am not your typical lap dog size. I love all the pups here from young to old and have gotten along with them all. If you are familiar with border collies or have an active lifestyle maybe I am the dog for you. Please stop by and meet me and see if we are a perfect match. 

 For more information on the available animals at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter please go to our website:capeannanimalaid.org. 

The shelter right now is in need of –PATE STYLE CAT FOOD and PEDIGREE CANNED PUPPY FOOD. Thank you .

Pet of the week- Girl


They call me Girl here and I am one big love bug! I arrived in rescue with a litter of pups (you may remember the “breakfast club” that was here a little while ago) and now that they are all grown and off in homes of their own it is my turn at love. 

I am an extremely affectionate lady and just adore every human I meet. Are you good at belly rubs? When you first meet me you will soon realize I LOVE belly rubs and will instantly roll over on my back for one when I see my human. 

 I am a pretty mellow girl. I enjoy my walks outside but I would much rather be curled up on the couch with you! My calmness has been good for me during my recovery from recent heartworm treatment. I am still recovering and will need to take things slow for a little while longer. This means I am considered a special needs adoption. I can go for leash walks, snuggle and enjoy everyday but I am not supposed to do any jogging, wrestling with other pooches or any other real cardio workout for another month or so. 

It is hard to keep a good gal down so my spirits are still up! Do you think we might be a match? Come on in! Please visit our website and check out all of the cats and dogs available at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter. http://www.capeannanimalaid.org

Pets of the week- Piper and Larry 


Hello! Piper here with my older brother Larry. We are like two peas in a pod, just love hanging out together! We came to the shelter from another rescue who thought we would have a better chance of finding a new family here. We were living on the streets of Boston where a nice man was taking care of us. We are glad to be here at the shelter and we are ready to find a loving home we can call our own. We are a little shy and will take a little while to settle in but we are sure with some time and patience we both will have lots of love to give. If you have room for two felines in your home please come on down and meet me and my brother Larry. Did I mention how pretty I am? For more information about Piper and Larry and all of the available animals at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter please check our website: http://www.capeannanimalaid.org. Our 2016 Dog Rescue Reunion is set for Saturday June 4th. You can register online.

 

Pet of the week- Ruby Doo


Ruby is a work in progress if you will. A little rusty in spots but nothing a little TLC won’t fix. This girl is super smart! Adventures outdoors are a must. A true friend Ruby’s favorite place is beside a person, someone who gives her scratches behind the ears or a good rub to her head. You may be asking yourself what is this rust you mentioned? Ruby loves to chase cars and needs training on the leash to learn not to chase them (as she is very strong). She barks at them when she is in the car as well and will jump back and forth so she needs to be belted in. Ruby needs a home with children in their teens and that is experienced with dogs and is committed to helping her over this one last hurdle. So if you’re looking for that perfect pal, that oversized lap-dog, you enjoy training and spending time exercising outdoors, well then stop by and visit Ruby! To learn more about Ruby and the see what other animals are available, please check our website: capeannanimalaid.org.

Pet of the Week-Hannah

Hello! My name is Hannah and I am a Super Senior!

Hannah

I am a friendly girl with both people and other cats.  My previous owner said I am like a puppy because I respond well to questions like “would you like to play” and “where’s your toy?” I like to be held, petted and am a total lap cat but I am not a fan of having my ears touched. I am declawed in my front paws so I need to be a completely indoors only cat. I am considered special needs because I have asthma. I am currently on steroids for the asthma, and have been responding well to the medication. I have not had any wheezing problems here at the shelter and the veterinarian says I should go into a non-smoking home. So, do you think you have the time for a special girl like me? Then stop by and visit with me today! The Super Senior Program is made possible in part by a grant from the Petco Foundation.

Pet of the Week- Benjamin

benjamin

Boy I am happy to meet you! I’m a one year old Coonhound mix who enjoys attention from my humans and I love to follow my nose, I guess you could say I am your typical hound. You wouldn’t believe all of the wonderful things I can smell! I like to explore new places and seem to settle quickly in any new environment, so if you take me home, I’m sure I’ll act like I’ve always been a part of the family! I am still young and have a lot of energy, so if you’re looking for a new hiking or walking buddy you found your match!  Don’t forget to get breakfast or lunch at Gloucester’s Zeke’s Place February 25th through the 28th because they are donating 15% of all the sales to help out animals like me!

Pet of the Week-Ellio

They call me Ellio because I am a talker and my meow sounds like “eee-leee-ooo” but I like Elli for short.

Ellio.jpg

I am a playful lady who likes to investigate. I enjoy nap time, treats and some petting but I don’t always want to be fussed over.  Why don’t you stop in to visit and we can get to know each-other?
