About Cape Ann Animal Aid

Cape Ann Animal Aid is a non-profit, no kill organization dedicated to facilitating appropriate placement of adoptable animals and enhancing the lives of all companion animals by promoting respect and well-being through education and outreach.

In 1964, the late Ruth Spoor and a group of animal lovers created the CAAA as a rescue group for the many cats and dogs often abandoned by summer residents. Over the years our organization grew from a few donated cages in an empty garage to occupying a 1,200 sq foot building at 260 Main Street to our present 7,500 sq foot facility at 4 Paws Lane, the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter.


Cape Ann Animal Aid donates surplus cat and dog food and pet supplies to partner organizations that distribute the items to families in need within the community, helping to ensure that they are able to keep their animal companions. For information about receiving food/supplies, please contact our partner organizations: The Open Door or Northshore Pet Pantry


Through this program, our shelter will cover the cost of a spay surgery for cats and dogs that have recently given birth. The mother and her offspring are fixed and the mother is returned to the owner while the offspring is adopted out through the shelter. Please call 978-283-6055 for more information.


We are dedicated to providing opportunities for the public to learn more about shelter animals and the work of the CAAA. We periodically host school groups, Scout troops, and other community groups at the shelter to educate and strengthen the human-animal bond at every age. For more information, please contact us at 978-283-6055 or email
