Veterinary care is a crucial component of a homeless animal's journey to finding a forever home. In 2020, Cape Ann Animal aid expanded it's Shelter Medicine Program under our Shelter Medicine Department and we are proud to now provide almost all of the essential medical and surgical care on-site to shelter pets. Since our shelter doors opened in 1964, we have relied on the generosity of our area veterinary clinics to help us with most of our veterinary needs. Now, thanks to the generosity of our supporters that understand the tremendous impact on-site care can have on the health and well-being of an animal, we can help these animals within our own walls, reducing transporting logistics and stress on the animal.
Sponsorship of this program connects your business to our supporters each time we communicate about the medical needs of individual dogs and cats. Throughout the year we share stories of routine and special medical needs of our animals and their wonderful journey to adoption that bring our North Shore community together.
