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.
