Story
Hello there my name is Brando and I am a sweet young boy just looking for a home of my own. I love everyone. I was picked up behind the old Necco Waffer plant in Revere by the ACO so they are guessing someone dumped me there. I was lucky to make my way to Cape Ann Animal Aid from the rescue that saved me. I am a beautiful tabby boy with a very unique look. Please fill out an online application for me and come visit me at the shelter.Submit an application for Brando by going to CapeAnnAnimalAid.org/Adopt

Are you looking for a laid back Senior guy? Cooper could be the one for you! He made his way to Cape Ann after his family decided to move and couldn't take him. This handsome fella is considered a special needs adoption because he has been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. Cooper is a big ball of love and is very affectionate towards people. He loves to chat and will meow for attention. Cooper has lived with a cat in his past but seems to not care for other cats here at the shelter. You will find him snoozing in his hammock making air biscuits and enjoying the sunlight shining in on him. If you think Cooper would be a good fit please fill out an application today!

Hello, Nutella here! I was found in Florida as a stay along with my best friend Butterscotch. We are looking for a home that will take us both since we are bonded. If you offer me a chicken churu I will be your best friend in no time. I am a big fan of scratching post and love to climb up in the window to watch the birds. I enjoy chin scratches and lots of petting! I tend to play quietly and by myself with my toy mice and feather toy. If you think we could be a good fit please fill out an application! https://capeannanimalaid.org/adopt.html

Needs special attention, Spayed or Neutered,
Story
Meet Vlad, this handsome boy is ready to charm his way into your life and bring an abundance of love and affection into your home. It may take him some time to warm up to you but once he does he will be a big cuddler! He loves to nudge his head on you to say hello and will seek out all the attention he desires. This boy will for sure listen to any and all conversations you will have with him and will come running whenever he hears a treat bag! Vlad is looking for a cat experienced home with his new family giving him the space he needs to adjust to the new environment. Despite what appears to be a past injury to his eye, Vlad doesn't let it dampen his spirits. He's a resilient soul, and this special need doesn't bother him in the slightest. He's thriving, happy and living his life to the fullest! Although Vlad would much rather be in a home than here at the shelter, he is very attached to us staff here. Vlad has had a few potential adopters but due to his strong feelings for the staff, he hasn't shown well to strangers. It has been decided that he would have a bigger success rate if you met him through a skype or zoom call so you could see how he truly is once comfortable. Vlad is now part of our foster-to-adopt program which is a 2 week trial to take him home and see if he's the right fit for you before deciding to adopt! If Vlad sounds like a great addition to your home, submit an application at CapeAnnAnimalAid.org/Adopt

Tom our gorgeous Tabby is 9 months old.  He is one of 7 siblings born in a foster home when his mom was rescued pregnant.  Luka our very handsome orange and white boy was already a foster in the same home.  Luka is 18 months.  Over the past few months they have been sharing a crate.  They are now, clearly a bonded pair.  Love to hangout in their hammock together.  They are playful with one another and rarely leave each other's side.  They both are very sweet and loveable boys.  Love their humans.   ##1981373##

Story
  Name:  Nod Age: DOB 9/13/22 Breed: DSH Size: Medium (8.5 lbs) Litter box trained: Yes   Story: Nod was surrendered to a shelter with her two underage, special-needs kittens (Wynken and Blynken). They needed a safe place to go so a rescue took them in.   About me: Nod is a sleek beauty who will capture your heart with her captivating gaze. She is very sweet and loves being pet and receiving ear scratches. She likes to be where her people are and isn't shy about getting on the counter to see what you might be doing. She enjoys being up high on table tops, shelves and even the refrigerator so a cat tree would be a good thing to have for her. She likes to chase her tail and still has quite a curious nature. She does fine with other easy-going cats but can be very bossy with them (will occasionally slap at them if they are invading her space or just feels like reminding them she's the queen diva). Nod would do very well as the only pet in the home. She is definitely a lap cat and adores being the center of attention. If you are passing by her, she will reach out and grab you to remind you she is there and you did not pet her (a tremendous insult to her majesty indeed! lol).  ##1981888##

Story
Name:  Sassafras (Sass) Age: DOB 9/1/22 Breed: DSH Size: Small (6.5 lbs) Litter box trained: yes   Story: Sass was a stray kitty that showed up to a home. Thinking she was a neighborhood feral, they trapped her intending to TNR, but when she proved to be very friendly, they wanted to try to find her a loving indoor home.    About me: Sassafras is sweet, silly and sometimes a stinker. She is very curious and loves to get into everything (especially boxes!). She loves to explore and will happily help you with whatever task you are doing (whether her help is needed or not). She loves to sit in the sink and drink from the faucet, LOVES her treats and isn't shy about gobbling down her wet food. She is small in stature but has a big voice and likes to talk to her people. She does good with other cats once she gets to know them. She enjoys sitting in laps and can sometimes give very light love bites when being pet (or if you mistakenly thought you were done petting her and she disagrees she'll grab your hand and nibble).  ##1981874##

Story
Age: 6 months Breed: DSH Size: medium for age Litter Box Trained: Yes Story: Sissy and her sibling Marm were abandoned on a back road Age: Miss Siss is a quiet-natured girl with a fondness for scritches and an allergy to kisses! This sweet darling loves a good, time-limited snuggle in between bouts of rambunctious kitten playtime. She has all the colors to make every cat enthusiast happy. She spends most of her day tackling her brother Marm, with whom she shares an orange mark on the side of her nose. Sissy is great with children, but has never met a dog up close. We would love for Sissy to be adopted with her brother Marm if possible, but at minimum she needs to be in a home with at least one other friendly young(ish) cat. ##1982499##

Story
Age: 6 months Breed: DSH Ginger Size: medium for age Litter Box Trained: Yes Story: Marm and his sibling Sissy were abandoned on a back road About me: Marm is as friendly a feline as you have ever met. He loves to ruffle in your hair and snuggle. His purr is supercharged and he uses it without shame to garner attention. His favorite time of the day is breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Marm is still a kitten with kitten energy, but he may very well become a lap cat once he learns to slow down! Contrary to popular belief about orange kitties, Marm is super smart and knows how to use levered door handles to let himself in and out of rooms. Marm is fantastic with children, but has no experience with dogs. We would love for Marm to be adopted with his sister Sissy if possible, but at minimum he needs to be in a home with at least one other friendly young(ish) cat.   ##1982501##
