Mews and Pupdates | December 2021

Happy tails to 146 newly united pets and families in November! Nala was just one of many animals who found their home in December. Nala is a 10-year-old senior gal who spent a couple of months at the shelter waiting on a home. Nala’s new family writes “She will explore, spend time with us and then when tired nap under the bed… for the first time she slept out in the open on the bed in her room (the bedroom door was open). While cautious, she has been sociable, seems happy to be here, and alert and interested in what she is experiencing.” We are so thankful to families like Nala’s who give senior cats a second chance!

2021 was full of challenges and changes, and we are finishing out the year with nothing but gratitude for all of our adopters, donors, and community. We have seen not only happy faces (masked and not!), but so much grace and understanding through a tumultuous year full of unknowns. THANK YOU from all of us at Cape Ann Animal Aid!

Huggie has quite an appropriate name, as she is a total love bug that enjoys jumping up and giving big hugs. We think this sweet lady may have some Great Dane in her mix, and at about 11 months old she is weighing in at 58 pounds. Huggie is incredibly sweet and social, and is looking for a home with older children that she can’t accidentally knock over!

Bunny was surrendered to a rural shelter in Georgia as her owner could no longer take care of her. Super sweet and social, this little lady loves attention! If you are looking for an older cat that has outgrown the crazy kitten antics then she is the kitty for you! Bunny has lived with other kitties and would not mind being part of a multi-cat household.

Thank you from over 1,500 animals that you helped us unite with their new families. Every animal that has gone through our doors and on to their new lives is now warm and loved this holiday season, thanks to you. Please help us continue to save more lives in 2022 by giving today!



Please join us on Saturday, March 5th, 2022, at Danversport for an evening on the water, celebrating with our amazing animal-loving community. This beautiful location is the perfect place to escape the winter cold and help homeless animals find their forever paradise! Thank you to our presenting sponsors Cape Ann Lobstermen and Titos Handmade Vodka – the vodka for dog people! Tickets are available for purchase now!


The deadline to receive your kit by Christmas has passed, but you can still purchase a PUP Kit to benefit CAAA through December 31st! Paint-Ur-Pet kits are hand-drawn, custom paint-by-number canvases of your pet and are easy to complete on your own or with a friend! Kits include the supplies you need to complete your own masterpiece.
Paint-Ur-Pet is generously donating 65% of purchases directly to CAAA.


We loved hosting home school families from the North Shore (left) for volunteer activities and some time with the animals! Hansel (center) visited Gloucester Healthcare for the first visit in over a year to the nursing home, and Frank (right) had a visit with Santa himself at Granite Coast Brewing Company.
