Humane Education Classes

CAP’s humane classes are an integral part of our strategy to improve the lives of animals. We hope that once people understand how to take care of their pets and that it is a life-long commitment, that the number of animals being turned in to the shelter will decline. Our goal is not only to help animals, a worthy goal in itself, but to help people through animals. CAP’s Humane Education program works to increase the awareness that animals are a source of joy and comfort to their human companions. They are, in fact, valuable members of a family and as such should be treated with respect and love.

Off-Site Visits

CAP offers its education program FREE OF CHARGE to the public. We bring our educational messages to your location with our CAP Ambassador Dog, Annie, a darling Chihuahua. She loves everyone and enjoys "teaching" lessons of unconditional love and the plight of her fellow shelter animals awaiting adoption. Instructions are given and lessons are conveyed concerning the responsibilities of pet care. This program is available to schools, clubs, groups or organizations of any kind in any venue.  Contact our Community Outreach Director for more information.

On-Site Visits

CAP offers tours of our animal shelter where participants experience hands-on interaction with some of our animals. We welcome Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Brownie Troups, Eagle Scouts and special school groups.  Contact our Shelter Activities Coordinator for more information.
