Some dogs are just classics, from the moment you look at them you think "that's one cool dog", like a classic pickup truck they just look and act like that loyal, loving companion that you'll need to do a little work with but that you'll always want to keep by your side. That's Ruby. She's a work in progress if you will. A little rusty in spots but nothing a little TLC won't fix. Adventures outdoors are a must for this girl. She's taken trips to the beach with volunteers and was in her glory! This girl is super smart! She knows sit, stay, leave it, and down, and is working on leash manners. She's got a super nose and would do GREAT with "nosework" if that's your cup of coffee. We do some here with her and she loves it. A true friend Ruby's favorite place is beside a person, someone who gives her scratches behind the ears or a good rub to her head. You may be asking yourself what is this rust you mentioned? Ruby loves to chase cars and needs training on the leash to learn not to chase them (as she is very strong). She barks at them when she is in the car as well and will jump back and forth in the car so she needs to be belted in. Ruby needs a home with children in their teens and that is experienced with dogs and is committed to helping her over this one last hurdle. So if you're looking for that perfect pal, that oversized lap-dog, you enjoy training and working with a smart pooch and spending time exercising outdoors, well then stop by and visit Ruby!

Our Adoption Process...

WE HAVE MANY MORE DOGS AND CATS AVAILABLE. SEE A COMPLETE, UP TO DATE LISTING AT : www.CapeAnnAnimalAid.org

To adopt one of our cats or dogs we ask that you come to the shelter during our operating hours. We have a one page application that can be filled out in person at the shelter or downloaded from our website and brought with you.

We ask that renters bring the name and contact number for their landlord. Home owners please bring proof of home ownership such as a mortgage statement, home owners insurance, property taxes etc. You can block out the financial amounts, we just need you name in conjunction with the property.

If you have existing pets, we ask that you bring the name and number of your veterinarian. If you know the office will be closed please bring your pets' veterinary receipts to show that your current pets are up to date with routine care and vaccinations.

Please be prepared to bring your entire family to meet any potential new pet as the animals may be more or less responsive to adults, women, men, and children. We want to ensure the pet is a good fit for the entire household.

If you are planning to adopt a dog or puppy and already have a canine family member at home, they must meet prior to adoption. It is important to see that your present dog and the perspective pup get along before bringing them home.

There is an adoption for each animal which helps offset some of the cost of care given to the animal prior to adoption. All of our animals are given a health exam by a licensed veterinarian, are spayed/neutered, and have received all age-appropriate vaccinations. All cats/kittens receive FIV/FeLv testing and dogs 6 months and older receive Heartworm/Lyme/E.canis testing.

All adopted pets are micro-chipped and sent home with a small bag of food, cats are sent home with a cardboard carrier if needed. Dogs receive a collar and leash if needed.

Adoption fees are as follows:
All dogs/puppies are $350
Kittens under 12 months $150
Cats 1 year to 5 years $100
Cats 6 years and older - Adoption Fee Waived

Before making the trip to visit, we strongly recommend checking our website for more complete information on adoption policies and procedures.

Pets can be adopted quickly, and although we update the pet list on our website daily, a puppy or kitten you see on our website before you leave may be adopted by the time you arrive. To inquire about a pet's availability or for more information please visit or phone the shelter (978-283-6055).

Because we are a busy place and because so many animals need our care and attention, adoptions are on a first come basis and no animal will be put on hold, we appreciate your understanding.
