Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Citizens for Animal Protection! As a CAP volunteer, you're joining like-minded individuals who go above and beyond in their generosity to make a difference in the lives of homeless animals. We offer a variety of programs to fit your needs from teen volunteering (Teen Service Day), volunteering long-term (Individual Volunteering), with a school or corporation (Group Volunteering) to volunteering from home to earn short-term hours (Service Projects). 


Teen Service Day

Teen Service Day provides youth ages 14-18 the opportunity to independently volunteer by walking and socializing with homeless dogs at CAP. This monthly activity gives those that are unable to participate in a long-term program the chance to make a difference while gaining service hours and hands-on experience.

Space is limited and on a first come first served basis. To register, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. today!
