Citizens for Animal Protection (CAP) strives to encourage the curiosity, optimism and exuberance of children - traits often found in our puppies and kittens! Our youth humane education programs allow children to experience lessons of empathy, service and citizenship with an emphasis on responsibility and safety. Children learn how they can make a real difference in the lives of homeless animals by becoming part of the solution today!
