Oh my goodness, I am in Good Morning Gloucester! Now everyone will get to know me better. My name is Pandora and I am a four-month-old Retriever and Great Dane.
My siblings and I are here at the Cape Ann Animal Aid, located at Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter, Four Paws Lane in Gloucester. We will be medium to large when we are fully grown. If you have the time for an active pup and want to put some excitement in your life, consider adopting me or one of my siblings, we are all sweet dogs and we love to snuggle!
Have you visited the shelter yet? If you haven’t you should come for a visit – it is incredible! Great outside trails, wonderful staff and volunteers and I love all the other animals here. If you visit, we would love to have some gently used towels, and of course, it is ok to bring toys for shelter cats and dogs. If you see you at the door, I will be sure to greet you!

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!

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!

Hello, my name is Chester, I am a five-year-old male Retriever/Golden mix. I am at the Cape Ann Animal Aid (CAAA), located at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter in Gloucester. A few things to know. I do like to chew a lot so I am learning to practice carrying a toy or ball around so I don’t get tempted to nibble on other things like my leash. I am a very smart and love to learn new things. I am happiest when with humans. I do not like cats or dogs – kind of scared, so I am looking to be your one and only. I am a special needs adoption because I have a heart murmur. The staff arranged for a consult with a vet and I even had an echo-cardiogram and ultrasound and the doctors said I will not require any medicine or extra treatment and I should have a normal lifestyle. But the way, I just turned five, so it isn’t too late to have a birthday party for me!
Hi! My name is Cutter and I am handsome yellow lab pup who is one. I am very sweet and affectionate and can’t wait to be adopted. I like to walk and play in the back yard with the great staff here at the Cape Ann Animal Aid, located at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter in Gloucester. I am an adult rescue so I am looking for a home with older, calmer children or adults.
I have been asked to tell you about the Blessing of the Animals. It will be held rain or shine on Sunday, Oct. 6 at 2 p.m. at Millbrook Meadow in Rockport in celebration of the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. The Rev. Karin E. Wade, rector of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church invites all Cape Ann pets to this short, ecumenical service. Animals should be on a leash, lead or in a cage or carrier. A donation will be taken to benefit the Cape Ann Animal Aid. Please adopt me and bring me to the blessing!
I hope Cutter is adopted soon! It looks like he needs someone to play football with in the backyard.
My name is Margaret – the pup in the middle! I am being held by my good friend Jeff Hobbs who is a volunteer at the Cape Ann Animal Aid (CAAA), located at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter in Gloucester.
I went to “Dog Day” with Jeff, held recently at Stage Fort Park, and we met some new friends – (L to R) Adam Madruga, Rachel Ketchopulos (seated) and Lauren O’Connor, all of Rockport.
I am not ready for adoption yet, I arrived at CAAA and I am now in foster care. I was born with a birth defect that left me without a paw on my left hind leg. While I can still bare some weight on it, doing this for too long will cause me pain and chronic infections, so I will soon have my leg amputated to ensure the best possible future for me. After my surgery I will be all set for a long and happy life, but first I need to have my surgery, recuperate and then I will be ready for loving home and family.
If you would like to make a donation to help me and other special needs animals like me, please send your check to Cape Ann Animal Aid, Four Paws Lane, Gloucester, MA and checks payable to Cape Ann Animal Aid and write “Margaret” in the memo.
If you have any questions or would like to make a donation on-line, please visit CapeAnnAnimalAid.com or contact Rebecca at 978-283-6055, ext. 23.
“Dog Day” was so much fun – thank you to the many people who attended! Jeff and I met so many new friends!
I must have given out at least 5,000 kisses!
