If I am still here at the shelter I hope one of the volunteers brings me to Ace Hardware so Santa can grant my wish, a family to call my own!  For more information on adoptable pets and upcoming events please visit www.capeannanimalaid.org.

Pet of the Week- DAVE


Hi!  My name is Dave and I am residing at the Cape Ann Animal Aid, located at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter in Gloucester.  I am sweet, affectionate and loving – by the way, I am on the left; my brother on the right thinks he knows how to sing.  We are here at the shelter with our other siblings.   I can be a little shy, but one I know you like me back; I am fine.   I think I am a Retriever mix.  I am only four months old, but will be medium in size when fully grown.   Now don’t get scared – we had demodectic a skin condition that can be treated.  It is not catchy to other healthy dogs, people or cats.  We do still need some medication and we will soon be following up with the vet.   Because of our special needs, we are looking to be adopted locally so our new families can follow-up with the kind staff here at the shelter for our skin care.

If you have the time and are up to the challenge that a pup brings – and all the joy too, please stop by the Cape Ann Animal Aid soon and adopt me/us soon!

Pet of the Week-Zoe


Hello, pleased to meet you.  My name is Zoe and I fell on some difficult times as my loving family did not want to part with me but had to because of housing issues.   I am an affectionate and mellow girl.   I am residing here at the Cape Ann Animal Aid, located at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter, Four Paws Lane, Gloucester.  Everyone is treating me just like family and I am comfortable, loved and being well taken care of just like my original family did.   I am hoping that I will find a forever home soon as I do love home life.  I am eight years old, I love taking walks and receiving hugs.

I love to ride in the car, and if you work from home or are retired or can have a dog join you in the office, that would be perfect.  I have also lived with children and adults and get along with all.

I am a loyal girl and hope that you might want to give me a second chance in life and stop by and visit me.  If I see that you are coming to adopt me, you will know me as my tail will be wagging 100 times a minute!
