She is already part of the family and does so well with our kids. She's affectionate, silly, and love cuddles. I'm so happy we went to CAP for her. As soon as we walked in, I knew she was the one for us!

We introduced them slowly and carefully, and they quickly became inseparable. They play, sleep, and groom together. Connor and Prince both seem so happy and I am so thankful to the staff at CAP for bringing these 2 lovely boys into my life.

After a few tries with several dogs, Duke was a perfect match. His calm personality and happy demeanor brought joy and happiness. He is a cuddler and loves chasing squirrels in the backyard. He has gotten along with every other dog he met, and he liked treats and will make a little dance each time he gets one offered. Thank you CAP for helping me find a suitable companion to my home.

My husband and I visited CAPS on a Saturday and left without adopting, but returned the following day because we wanted to visit with one pup we noticed on the way out the day before. We took him home and he has become a beloved member of our family!!

His best friend passed away about 2 years ago and we felt like we were ready for a new furry family member. We actually went to the shelter several times and ended up taking one kitten and two adults with health issues. Pumpkin was very shy and took the longest to get comfortable, but now, she is just as friendly and inquisitive as the others. We love our CAP pets so much! Thank you!

When went to CAP to just see if we were ready to get another. We noticed Gigi(former JJ) was an owner surrender, 6 years ikd, blind in one eye, and had some medical issues. She also was very vocal, but we also know that they are stressed out . We took her into the room with our kids and she immediately became a part of our family. She leaped into our laps and we decided then, she was coming home with us! After a couple days, it was as if she had been with us forever. We love her so much!

We had previously adopted a dog for years ago from CAPs as a therapy dog for our youngest. Someone for him to love and help take care of. That dog immediately was the sweetest most loyal addition to our family! Chloe immediately became a member of our family and we love her dearly. However, recently since Covid and us spending a lot more time at home we noticed that with the restrictions uplifted and us returning back to her daily activities work/and kids in school that Chloe seemed lonely, therefore we decided to add another member to our family. We went to CAPS walked in and my children immediately fell in love with Charlie. Since the day we picked her up we have loved her like we’ve had her forever and she’s already a member of our family and fit right in! Chloe and Charlie have become The best of sisters and has helped Chloe be more active by having a younger sister puppy to entertain. Thank you to caps for all they do for the animal community!

We adopted Nina just before the COVID epidemic struck the United States. We didn’t know how important Nina would be to us to help us through the ups and downs. She is our little fur baby and I am so happy to have met her through CAP!
