Ever hopeful, ever loving, always forgiving - pets are wonderful teachers. CAP believes the future of our four-legged friends depends on our youth. We hope you will consider getting your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews involved. It’s a wonderful way to learn more about animals and to enjoy the company of others who share a love for animals (for children ages 6-14).

Citizens for Animal Protection strives to encourage the curiosity, optimism and exuberance of children; traits shared with our furry friends.  Each 2 hour meeting allows kids to make a difference in the lives of companion pets through games, arts& crafts and real life interactions with companion pets. We offer lessons in care, compassion and responsibility that increase our knowledge, skills and build our confidence, all while having FUN! 





The $50 annual membership fee covers:

- Invitation to attend our quarterly meeting/parties which will include a hands-on interaction with various animals.

- Animal themed crafts, games and service projects that engage and educate our youth.

- Priority booking and 10% discount on facility fees for birthday parties at our shelter.

- Early enrollment opportunities for our limited space Kids & Kritters Summer Camp.

Psst… All members are always allowed to bring a human guest to the meeting.

This includes the purchase of food, medical supplies, heartworm and medical treatments and other items needed to care for the animals we receive every day.  We closely monitor our expenses and seek sponsorships for supplies and expenses so that we may contribute even more to the animals cared for at our shelter.  CAP is also dedicated to providing humane education and community outreach programs to encourage love and respect for all animals.  To learn more about how you can help support educational programs and animal services like ours, contact our CAP Humane Education Coordinator.  We would love to discuss sponsorship and volunteer opportunities!
