Kids love animals and CAP loves kids! Every last Friday of the month CAP will host a Kid's night at CAP. Our teen volunteers and CAP staff will entertain the first 50 kids that arrive at CAP from 6:30PM till 9:30PM.

Go to a movie! Enjoy a dinner out at a restaurant that doesn't feature chicken nuggets. Catch up with your adult friends! Heck their kids can hangout at CAP too. You deserve a break! Kids 6 and up are welcome for a donation of $15 (or more if you're inclined) per child. Animal themed FUN & games will keep the kiddos entertained and kid approved dinner is included*. NO reservations required. Limit of 50 kids.

Citizens for Animal Protection, CAP, strives to encourage the curiosity, optimism and exuberance of children -- traits often found in our furry pups and kittens! Help your child discover the joy and wonder of befriending animal companions while in the company of other kids that share their natural love of pets. All proceeds raised benefit the many homeless pets cared for at the CAP Animal Shelter & Pet Adoption Center.

*Dinner is donated by a local sponsor and therefore may not be suited for kids with special dietary needs. Parents are asked to bring your child's dinner if you think there might be any issues. Past donated dinners have been chicken tenders, cheese pizza, pasta, hot dogs etc.

Calling All Kroger Shoppers, Urgent Update Needed! Due to a Kroger computer glitch, CAP supporters who used support CAP through shopping at Kroger are no longer able to do so. Please sign up again as soon as possible by going to KrogerCommunityRewards.com, scroll down to Texas and click “Enroll Now” then sign in and click "Save."  Thank you for saving more lives! 

A big thank you to West Houston Subaru and customers who designated CAP as their charity of choice - you raised $60,000 during the Share the Love event (with an additional $25,000 from West Houston Subaru for 2017 adoptions)!

A big shout out to our 2016 CAP Kids Club members who built 23 outside feral cat shelters for our FCAP volunteers!  We had an early cold snap and these 6-13 year old children did their part to help these community cats stay warm for the winter. CAP Kids prove even the smallest hands can help care for creatures great and small. Invite your child to join us at our next meeting this 2/12 at the CAP Animal Shelter & Pet Adoption Center from 1-3PM.

A big Christmas thank you to Martha Harris who raised money from her Zumba class for CAP! Martha collected donation in a "dog bucket" at class and called her fundraiser "Shakin for the Shelter." Shakin' for the Shelter raised $500 and purchased the food in our Pet Supply Store. Way to go Martha and all the supporters who shook it for CAP!
