CAP was featured in the Lake Houston Observer last week for a community outreach event at Crosby Branch Library. The focus of the talk was on growing these young children's natural compassion and empathy for animals.

CAP was invited to speak at the Crosby Branch Library on June 13th as part of their Summer Events and Programs. The focus of the talk was on growing these young children's natural compassion and empathy for animals. Ana Rodriguez, from CAP's Outreach program, spoke with the children about the kinds of bonds and obligations we have toward our human family members, and how these kinds of feelings and actions extend toward our pets, who are also part of our families. The children also discussed and identified stressed emotions and behaviors in animals. The talk ended with children meeting Maggie Mae, CAP's "canine crusader" and seeing their ideas about treating and interacting with animals come to life.
