Many of us have experienced the phenomenon of love at first sight when encountering a helpless animal.  Instantly smitten, we instinctively want to protect and care for a suffering pet.  But good intentions are not enough.  Let us help you help our community’s furry friends.  Education is an integral part of our strategy to improve the lives of animals.  Schedule a humane education visit, often featuring one of our well-behaved CAP Ambassador Pets, for your next meeting or event free of charge.  With decades of practical experience, CAP offers proven advice and programs that help citizens like you make a difference in the lives of companion animals and the many people who love them.

Our educational programs can be tailored to meet your needs – just let us know what topics you would like us to focus on and we can adapt to your particular needs. We also love to participate in health fairs and festivals. Invite us to speak at your next gathering. Everyone loves to meet our CAP Ambassador pets and remembers our visit for years to come. Weekend, weekday and evenings are available. All requests should be made at least two weeks in advance and monetary and/or wish list donations are encouraged for our homeless pets.

Shelter Tours with Educational Discussion

CAP offers tours of our beautiful CAP Animal Shelter & Pet Adoption Center where participants experience hands-on interaction with some of our animals. See what we do and how we do it first hand.  Tours can be done in person or virtually via live video platforms such as Google Meets, FaceTime, Zoom, Skype, etc. Tours include a humane education lesson and questions are encouraged.
