About Citizens For Animal Protection
Citizens for Animal Protection (CAP), was formed in 1972 to shelter, rescue and place animals in loving homes, relieve animal suffering and provide humane education. The true success of the organization remains the focus on the individual animal. CAP is committed to saving the lives of homeless animals “one tail at a time”. The organization has excelled in doing all of this in a rented building in a strip center, but in January 2011, the organization opened a new inviting facility located on the Katy Freeway at Barker-Cypress. Because of CAP’s solid core of supporters, staff, and volunteers who have been with the organization from the grass roots beginning, CAP boasts a 4-star rating with Charity Navigator.
