Pet of the Week-Foojin

Let’s meet in person!  Foojin here and I am a happy and laid back 11 year old senior fellow.  Snacks, naps and cuddling that is what life is all about!  I am perfect travel companion size, fit in the passenger seat just fine and I don’t mind joining you on a leisurely stroll.  Did I mention I like those stuffed toys?

I am a special needs adoption with some health concerns.  So if you are willing to give a senior fellow his second chance and don’t mind helping out with some of the aches and complaints that come along with age, look me up! I may need a little extra care but I promise to make it all worth your while with the way you will always have a buddy who adores you, is ready to listen to you and willing to join you on any adventure!

Pet of the Week-Stewie

stewie 1

stewie 2

I’m what you call a Velcro dog. I love to be with my owner! Chinese Crested dogs were bred for Therapy dogs so we love to be with our family all of the time. I would love nothing more than to eat, sleep and breathe you. I love to snuggle under the covers of your bed, ride in the passenger seat of your car and sit on your lap while you watch T.V. but I hate going in a crate! I am a Special needs adoption because I have severe skin acne and will need weekly scrubs and bathes with special shampoos to get my skin back looking the way it should.  Know and love my breed?  Have time for a special guy who will be loyal and true?  Stop by the shelter to meet me or one of my furrier friends!

Pet of the Week-Lua

lua2

People best describe me as having a gentle soul.  My name is Lua and I can be shy at first but I love when you take the time to say hello, once we have gotten to know each-other I enjoy cuddled.  I like scratching posts and sleeping next to you in the bed at night.  I am looking for an adult home where the humans understand that it can take time to get used to being part of a family again.  I am a fan of soft napping spots, sunny windows for bird watching and lazy afternoons.   I might be the purr-fect little lady for you!

Pet of the Week – Stack

Stack

Stack is the name! I am a handsome young guy with a fresh new hairdo. It certainly put some pep in my step!  Oh well. I am definitely the kind of guy who likes to enjoy all of the wonderful things life has to offer, I like to find the sunny spot on the couch to take a nap, and let the wind blow my ears in the breeze.   Being an adult rescue and not knowing my history I am looking for a family with older children.  Stop by the shelter to meet me or one of my furry friends!

Pet of the Week- Mikaela

Mikaela

Mikaela here and I was wondering if you have heard about this fun weekend on September 5th and 6th called Pooch-A-Palooza?  The folks here are talking about it and it sure sounds like a “dog-gone good time” with proceeds to help support the care of dogs like me!  Cape Ann Animal Aid has teamed up with Pooch-A-Palooza to put together a fun filled weekend for people and their dogs at the Topsfield Fair Grounds.   I will be busy here at the shelter, meeting my new family, but I’m super excited that this event will help more pups like me find homes!

I’m about a 8 months old, so I still have puppy energy and I have to learning basic doggie skills and tricks but don’t worry I promise I’ll catch on quick! I’m a little shy but, warm up fast.  I’ve been told I have some spaniel and retriever in my family mix but no one is exactly sure. What does that really matter anyways? I’ll find someone who loves me no matter what kind of mix I am! Think you have the time to be my prince or princess charming? YES?!?! Then come visit me today! I can’t wait to meet you!

Did someone say goofy puppy?  Why yes, that’s me for sure!  I am a sweet and playful boy with lots of energy, curiosity and love to share.  Do you know anything about these things they call “leashes”?  I am trying hard to teach the humans around here to walk in the direction I want to go.  Want to take classes together?  Like going for walks in the woods or playing in the water?  Maybe we could help each other out, life is always much better when you have a friend by your side!

Save Bunnie’s Leg!

bunnies leg

 

To help save Buddie’s leg, donate here: http://www.loveanimals.org/caaa-save-bunnies-leg.html

 

Bunnie was rescued from a high-kill shelter in the area of Acworth, GA by Cape Ann Animal Aid. After receiving a clean bill of health during her routine vet exam, Bunnie was spayed and ready for adoption…but Bunnie began walking with an occasional limp, favoring her right front leg.

X-rays revealed that Bunnie had a growth plate fracture. The fracture was old and likely occurred prior to her rescue. Bunnie had begun exhibiting symptoms of pain once her leg bones grew past a certain point. That’s because the fracture stopped bone growth of Bunnie’s radius, preventing it from growing normally to match the other bones in her leg.
Buddie needs surgurey to lengthen the bone medically using a procedure called Distraction Osteogenisis. Distraction Osteogenisis surgery relies on the bone continuing to grow under medically forced circumstances. During surgery, an external fixator will be secured to Bunnie’s bone allowing for it to be slowly lengthened (.5-1mm per day) until the desired bone length is reached.

This procedure is very costly and they are anticipating a vet bill of approximately $5,250. This includes expenses (provided at a reduced cost by Cape Ann Veterinary Hospital) for pre-operative blood work and x-rays and post-operative pain management medication.

They are very close to their goal, but need your help!
