Pet of the Week- Brewster

Brewster

Hello! My name is Brewster. I am a lucky guy who was found all the way in Puerto Rico and rescued with several other lucky kitties and moved up this way thanks to Wags 2 Riches Rescue. I am now looking for my shot at finding a forever home! I would do best in a home with another friendly confident cat, I enjoy the company of another feline companion and hopefully they will help to teach me the ropes of what life is like indoor living. I much prefer the quiet side to take things at my own pace, I would do great in a low traffic home with older children that can respect my space. I love tasty treats especially tuna & playing the day away chasing wand toys.If you are looking for a laid back guy stop by and meet me today!

Pet of the Week- Lita

Lita
Hello there, my name is Lita. I am one of the lucky kitties to be rescued with my litter of 5 kittens and transported up north to be adopted. Now that my kittens are on their own and ready to find homes of their own, it is my turn to have a loving home of my own.
I am just over one year old and I am a sweet loving little girl. I love all people and would make a great addition to any home. If you are looking for a kitty to add to your house hold and just don’t want to do the kitten thing than I am the girl for you. I haven’t been a big fan of the other cats here at the shelter, I seem to like my space from them. Just sayin’!
Please stop on by and spend some time with me and see if I pick you to be my new family.

Pet of the Week- Alina & Caesar

Alina & Caesar
Hi, my name is Alina and the big guy next to me is my best bud, Caesar.
Can you believe this is our second go around at finding our forever home? Change can be tough but we are hoping someone will have it in their heart to adopt us both as a bonded pair. We have been together for awhile now and we really believe that life is better together!
I am about 6 years old and tend to be the more reserved one. I like to take my time getting to know you, but once I do, I love attention and especially being brushed! The folks here always tell me how cute I am when I ‘give paw’ or run and do zoomies around the play yard.
Caesar is about 5 years old, and is the more outgoing one. He loves everyone he meets (dogs, people, you name it)! He is a great balance of energy and chill. He keeps me moving and makes me feel young and also safe.
We love exploring outside and resting in some snuggly beds . We are both crate trained, know ‘sit’, love car rides, and are just awaiting your arrival. We’d love to start our next chapter with you! We know that many people are looking to adopt puppies, but there are a lot of positives to adopting adult dogs, too.
In our previous home we lived with children and well…we have decided we prefer the attention on us , because of this we are looking for an adult only home. Because we are members of the extended stay club, our adoption fees have been reduced to help us find a home more quickly. Please consider coming to meet us. We’d love to meet you!

Pet of the Week- Auggie

Auggie 1

My name is Auggie and I am a special needs pup! Who doesn’t love an adorable pup?! I am a terrier mix just about 3 months old.

I have never met a toy I didn’t like, and I think running around and playing outside is pretty much the greatest thing since sliced bread. I have made many new dog and human friends here at the shelter, so that’s a lot of fun some have even taken me offsite and I loved It! What I think would be even better is having a home and family of my very own. Maybe you can help me out?

I’m what’s called a special needs adoption because I have a heart condition called pulmonic stenosis. I take medicine called atenolol every day and there are possible surgical procedures and continued diagnostics that we could explore together if we decide that is the route we want to take but for now I am enjoying being a puppy and hoping you will take a chance on me. The doctors estimate that without any correction of the defect I could start showing clinical signs, typically fainting at 5-7 years but it is hard to predict the future so I plan on enjoying every day to the fullest!

Pet of the Week- Mr. Buddy

Mr. Buddy

Mr. Buddy here, and I’m a handsome shepherd mix guy. I made my way to CAAA all the way from Texas where someone had dumped me. Luckily some nice people found me and took me in and fostered me until I was ready to make the journey north. I’m a social guy and I love people, and my foster says I get along well with other dogs. I wouldn’t do well in a home with cats because I want to play with them and that tends to freak them out. Other than that I’m pretty darn perfect. Don’t just take my word for it though, come find out for yourself!

Watch Ocean Alliance on CBS News…

The last few weeks have been pretty exciting at Ocean Alliance hosting a number of television crews.

Two Saturday’s ago, Ocean Alliance had a CBS News shoot for a national news feature on SnotBot®. Host Tom Hanson interviewed Iain Kerr for the segment and filmed SnotBot® in action on Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. We had really great weather and experienced a feeding frenzy of seabirds, dolphins, finback and humpback whales. Ocean Alliance collected great behavioral footage along with a robust snot sample from a Finback whale that will be analyzed  for hormones, DNA, and microbiomes. The news story is planned to air on CBS News affiliated stations today, reaching a minimum of 5 million viewers!

This past weekend actor/comedian Sir Billy Connolly spent three hours at the Paint Factory with Ocean Alliance filming a segment for Billy Connolly’s Great American Trail television show. The show will be broadcast on ITV in September 2019 and then worldwide. The production team was interested in filming in Gloucester because of the whaling history, wildlife, and Ocean Alliance’s new developments in whale research. Billy was able to test out our thermal imaging drone FLIRBot, and even fly a drone himself! It was a lot of fun hosting Billy and the production team at our Paint Factory headquarters. We’ll keep you updated on when the show will air.

Look for it on BBC streaming in the near future.

Pet of the Week – Dover

dover 1dover 2
Hi, my name is Dover! I made my way to Cape Ann Animal Aid through Road Trip Home Rescue! I am a lucky guy and thankful for another chance. I was rescued from my home when my owner passed away.
The folks here think I have some Beagle and terrier in my family tree but no one knows for sure. I got to spend some time in foster, and my foster mom says I am a very sweet guy, and I like people and other dogs. I am very friendly and playful. I love attention, but I am also content to play alone with my toys. Sometimes I just like to sit with my foster mom and watch TV. The staff here say I am a sweet and energetic guy I am looking for that special family who wouldn’t mind providing love and care for me.
I am considered a special needs adoption because I recently underwent heart worm treatment. I will need to continue exercise restrictions in the future.

Pet of the Week- Tippy

Can you believe I have missed “Wheel of Fortune” four nights in a row so far? Disgraceful. Tippy here.
Tippy
I’m a sweet elderly lady who was brought to CAAA because my previous owner had passed away. I’m over the youngster stage and the night time zoomies phase of my life and would prefer a more quiet home (so I can hear my program). As a senior I am part of the Super Senior club and my super power is “faithful snuggle companion”.
Tippy2
Do you want a TV couch partner? We don’t have to watch “Wheel of Fortune”, I’ll settle for “Jeopardy” just fine. Come stop by and meet me today!

Pet of the Week – Arrow

Arrow
My name is Arrow, I am a sweet 6 month old Shepherd Mix looking for a family of my own. I came up to Cape Ann Animal aid through Road Trip Home Animal Rescue. I was picked up by animal control and brought to the shelter and never claimed. Everyone immediately fell in love with me.
I am a little reserved and like to take my time settling in and getting to know everyone, but once I do I love to be pet and fussed over! I am really smart and know some basic commands like sit, and lay down. Come by and meet me and see for yourself and maybe take me home while your at it! I would do best in a home with children 12 and up who can respect my space.

Pet of the Week- Natasha and Tamara

Natasha and Tamara here! We are sibling chihuahua mixes that made the journey to CAAA all the way from Puerto Rico! Why, you ask? Well, you see, there are many strays in PR and the chances of us finding homes there are pretty slim. So we flew north in pursuit of families!
We can both be a little bit timid with new people, but once we warm up to you we let our goofy and playful sides shine. The staff here say we are both lots of fun and we seem to go with the flow. Feel like going for a hike? Great, us too! Wanna chill on the couch and watch a movie? Sounds like a great idea!
If you’re looking to add a new canine addition to your life and are looking for someone on the smaller side, stop in for a visit and see if one of us would be a good match for you!

Pet of the Week- Mr. Beanz

mr beanz
Handsome, witty, and charming; Mr. Beanz is what my friends call me! I’m a single guy who is looking to change that. I’m intelligent (If I were a person, I would spend many hours a day reading by the fire in my home office, adorned with a silk robe and designer reading glasses propped low on my nose), gentle (I’ve never been known to so much as bat at a person. If I’m uncomfortable, I choose to take the high road and remove myself from the situation), and inquisitive (I find learning how the world works to be very intriguing, and make it my mission to gather as much knowledge as possible). I have also been working on honing my skills in regard to what you humans like to call “tricks”, such as “sit” and “high five” (Check out the video in my profile of me in action. Can anyone say instagram stardom here we come?!). I know I can learn more of these “tricks” if you’re willing to teach me.
As aforementioned, I’m the thinking type, and I REALLY like treats, so training me is a no-brainer. Being the wise gentleman that I am, I’m pretty willing to go with the flow. I like being around people, but I don’t crave constant attention (Eww, annoying! Don’t worry, I’m polite enough to know I’m not the only important thing in your world). I don’t mind the company of other cats one bit, so I can certainly be an addition to your feline collection. I’m always on the move, forever exercising my investigative skills. I promise there will never be a dull moment with me around. If you give me a loving forever home I promise to fill your days with entertainment and companionship. C’mon, help a single guy change his status. I really am quite the catch and I think you’ll agree.

Pet of the Week- Lottie

lottie.png

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!

lottie2

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.

Pet of the Week- Aphrodite

Who doesn’t need a little bit of Greek goddess in their lives?
Aphrodite 1
Sometimes affectionate, sometimes aloof, always able to entertain! I am sort of a one woman cat, I don’t like sharing my space so if you are thinking multi-cat household we won’t be the right match. If you are a one on one sort of pet family then let’s chat. I enjoy playing with toys, chasing feathers, batting around string, balls and pouncing on laser lights. I like attention but sometimes it can be too much and I can get overstimulated so some pats and scratches behind the ears and along the back of my neck is my idea of cuddle time.
aphrodite 2.png
You can see me getting cozy up against one of my favorite volunteers’ leg in my last picture. My idea of the perfect home would be one with sunny spots for napping, soft cozy places to curl up, and of course some loving humans to share my days with. Do you think you may be the one to give this lovely lady a second chance at love? Come on down and visit with me and see if we are a match made in heaven.

Pet of the Week- Marcellina

Hi, my name is Marcelina. The folks here are guessing I am a Siamese Mix about two years old. I am ready for a fresh start in life and to learn all the ups of indoor living.
Marcellina 1.png
I don’t ask for much in my new home. I would love a family who wouldn’t mind giving me a little time to settle in and explore. I am a fan of cozy beds,sunny windows and tasty treats. I am more on the mellow side and would prefer a low key, quiet home.
Marcellina 2.png
I am excited for my next adventure and hope to meet you soon! Stop by and visit me today to see if I would be a good fit for your family!
