Hi there, my name is Lottie! I am a sweet girl who is a little over two years old. I made my way to Cape Ann Animal Aid with several other lucky pups looking for a home of my own. My foster mom cared for me for several weeks; I stayed with her in the country and I really enjoyed going for walks with her. She said I especially liked milk bones and my monkey toy!
I am considered a special needs adoption because I recently finished up a course of treatment for heartworm. I will need to continue to be on an exercise restriction for a while and follow up with my new vet in the future.

Gatolina is what I go by, but don’t worry, I’m not too attached to the name. I’m a super cute young lady with fluffy white and orange fur.
I am a rather petite gal, but don’t let my size fool you. My sweet personality more than makes up for what I lack in size. I take a little bit to warm up to you, but once I do I am a love.
I would most likely do better in a quieter household. I just want to spend my days doing the same old thing with the same old people. I like attention and petting on my terms, and will let you know when I’ve had enough by giving you a little love bite (it doesn’t hurt, I swear!).
I know once I get out of this stressful shelter environment my personality will really have a chance to shine. So what do you say, take a chance on me?

Hi my name is Shasta! I was a young mamma who had 6 beautiful babies. We all made our way here to CAAA to find homes of our own and they have all been adopted; now it’s my turn!
I am only about a year and a six months old, still have plenty of pep in my step. I would do well in a active home with a family that likes walks in the woods or adventures. I love to be around my people and I am sure to be a great loyal companion. I play with toys of all kinds and always have one in my mouth! One of my favorite games is playing fetch with tennis balls.
Stop in and visit me today if I sound like a good fit! To learn more about me or other animals waiting for homes, please come visit our shelter at 4 Paws Lane in Gloucester or check us out online at www.capeannanimalaid.org.
Here is the video from 1623 Studios of the Coyote Ecology & Behavior presentation from Dr. Jonathan Way. The presentation was held on February 27th, hosted by the Animal Advisory Committee.
This time of year coyotes will be active, so its important to protect your pets by keeping them indoors or on a leash, and never be left unsupervised.
Coyotes may be denning with small pups near your home or in the woods. They will be extra protective of their pups, so keep your dogs, even large dogs, leashed and close to you. Smaller dogs may be considered prey, while larger dogs could be considered a threat.
Coyotes are attracted to yards with bird feeders, compost, and accessible trash. Not only are some of these things easy meals for coyotes, but they also attract small rodents, which coyotes prefer to eat. You can follow this yard audit to coyote proof your yard, click Here.
We want to keep the coyotes wild, so it is important to be loud and try to scare them away. Bang pots, yell/scream, throw thing in their direction. Ask your neighbors to do the same and report anyone actively feeding them to the police.
Do you have a soft spot in your heart for sweet chubby-cheeked fellows like myself?
My name is Bucephalus and I came to Cape Ann Animal Aid after my owner could no longer care for me. Coming from a home, I’m not used to the hustle and bustle of shelter life at all! But I am starting to settle in and warm up to the idea of having to find a new home at this stage of the game.
Change can be scary, but sometimes it is necessary, and I’m trying to face this challenge with a brave face. I would do best in a quieter household without a whole lot of commotion. Now that you know all my baggage, just know I would gladly accept any of yours, too. I’m not the judgmental type at all!
I’m considered a Super Senior which means my adoption fee is waived. We also are assigned super powers, and mine is CHEEKS! I hope you stop by to meet me soon. Until then I’ll be here, waiting.

Bambi here! I’m a sweet lady looking for a home to call my own.
No one knows everything about my past, but that’s okay because I’m looking forward to a bright future. I made my way here from the south because I know up here I have a much better chance of finding a forever family. There’s just way too much competition down south! I just recently arrived following a very long van ride with many other animals who are also dreaming of their very own homes. Because everything is unfamiliar I’m a little stand-offish at first, but I’m quite easy to win over with a little bit of treats and attention.
I imagine my hair blowing in the breeze as I run through the leaves with my new owner by my side. Do you think you may fit into this vision? Stop on by today and see if we were meant to be together forever.

If you can’t make the coyote presentation on Monday February 26th, we added another presentation on February 27th! Dr. Jonathan Way will present an additional seminar on Tuesday, February 27th at 10am at the Senior Center.
These talks will discuss Eastern Coyote behavior based on Dr. Jonathan’s Way research and experience. We hope this will help us to learn about coyote behavior and how we can live with our coyote neighbors and avoid conflicts.
I hope to see you there!
The Animal Advisory Committee is hosting a coyote awareness program at the Cultural Center at Rocky Neck on February 26th at 7pm. Dr. Jonathan Way will be giving a presentation based on his eastern coyote research. We hope the presentation will be educational on how we can peacefully coexist with coyotes. We anticipate this will be a packed event and hope to do more of these events in the future.
Hope to see you there!
