Event Chairs:  Bruce Padilla & Shelby Kibodeau

Citizens for Animal Protection (CAP) is hosting our annual summer gala, “Mr Magoo’s We are the Champions” on Saturday, June 22, 2019 at the Bayou City Event Center.  This event was named after a very special cat that was brought to CAP over 20 years ago after being in an abusive situation.  He became our shelter mascot, living in the office area until he passed away in 2010.

To honor Mr. Magoo, this fun and unique event was created to raise much needed funds during the summer months when our funds are lowest and intake is at its highest.  This year, we are proud to honor Big Fix Houston, a project of Unity For A Solution and Sonia Soto, community volunteer who gives an extraordinary amount of love, compassion and time to helping animals in the Greater Houston area.

The event is expected to draw more than 250 supporters and raise more than $150,000, which allows us to continue providing high quality services such as sheltering animals, adoptions, humane education, low cost spay/neuter surgeries and vaccinations for the community, and more.

We would love to have your support by purchasing a table or ticket, or by donating an item for our live or silent auction, including sporting event tickets, gift cards, gift certificates from your business, or perhaps a unique trip or experience.
