Animal caretaker Lauren Scioli visits Pluto, a six-month-old hound mix from Georgia, at Cape Ann Animal Aid's Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter in Gloucester. "He's one of my favorites," said Scioli. "He's a good boy and very trusting with people." Hounds tend to be smart and Loyal, said Scioli, and Pluto fits the bill. People wishing to adopt Pluto or another dog or cat can stop by the shelter, located at 4 Paws Lane in West Gloucester, every day but Monday.
