The Center for Animal Protection and Education (CAPE) works to save the lives of individual animals and to educate people about ways in which they can change their own lives to alleviate animal suffering.
CAPE was founded in 1992 by JP Novic and Shelley Frost along with a group of caring individuals with a wide variety of professional experience in animal welfare and protection. Over the years, CAPE has helped thousands of animals. CAPE's Foster Care Program provides a safe place for rescued animals who are older, injured or recovering from an illness. These animals are placed into new, loving homes through CAPE's and Adoption Programs.
In 2012 CAPE established the CAPE Animal Sanctuary in Grass Valley, California. Focusing on animals with special needs and our burro rescue program, the CAPE Animal Sanctuary is now the permanent home to dozens of animals.
“Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace."
