Adopt an animal from our shelter! Before visiting the shelter, you can view the dogs and puppies, cats and kittens, rabbits, and other small animals shown available for adoption in our online adoption listings.  CAP attempts to work with everyone who is interested in adopting an animal and giving it a new forever home, however CAP does reserve the right to refuse an adoption application for reasons including, but not limited to: falsified information on application, current identification and address cannot be verified or if the adoption is not in the best interest of the animal and the adopter.

Our adoption lobby is now open to the public on an appointment only basis. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment to see our animals, please submit an adoption application first. We will review your application and contact you within 48 hours to set up an appointment. We are working with all interested parties on a first-come-first-served basis, based on the shelter visit and we are not able to reserve a specific pet. In general, if an animal is on our website, it is available currently and if it is no longer on the website, it has already been adopted. We can not respond to email inquiries about whether a certain pet is still available or not. If you have further questions about the pet (personality, size, etc.) please call the shelter at 281-497-0591.
