Citizens for Animal Protection, CAP, strives to encourage the curiosity, optimism and exuberance of children -- traits often found in our furry pups and kittens!

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!
