❤️Day 7 of CAPE’s Celebrate Senior Animals Week!!🐴This sweet 22 year old man has been through a lot. He once roamed free on public land, but he was rounded up by the BLM and separated from his family. He spent eight months in a holding pen in a Nevada prison getting little to no socialization.
We can only imagine how much stress and trauma he must’ve experienced. After rescuing Papa Antonio, in collaboration with American Wild Horse Campaign, he stayed with CAPE’s trusted vet for four weeks. She worked on building trust gently, which was challenging at first because he did NOT want to be touched. After spending time learning trust and getting a full health check, Papa came to live at his forever home at the CAPE Animal Sanctuary.
The CAPE staff have been working daily to gain his trust and get him comfortable. After a month of working on this, Papa will now come right up to the staff for scratches and love. He follows us as we walk around the pasture and he he loves a snuggle from CAPE’s Animal Care Director, Jackie.
Papa has been introduced to the rescued herd slowly and we will show you a little later today how well it’s been going! Want to learn more about Papa Antonio? Please visit www.capeanimals.org/burros.html
🐾Day 6 of CAPE’s Celebrate Senior Animals Week!💜
Often, we meet animals in shelters who are not good candidates for adoption. These animals are older and usually have chronic health conditions or temperament issues that require that they be closely monitored and cared for.
Meet some of the amazing senior dogs in CAPE’s Assisted Living Program! Over the years, CAPE has been able to save the lives of dozens of senior animals who were brought into our Assisted Living Program which is designed to provide animals who are not candidates for adoption with permanent foster care in the home of a loving CAPE foster volunteer. Volunteers who sign up for this program make a commitment to care for the animal for the remainder of the animal’s life, and CAPE covers ALL expenses.
The huge success of this program has been due to the kindness and commitment of our wonderful volunteer team, who we are deeply grateful for. Every animal, no matter their circumstances deserves the opportunity to thrive long into their lives.
CAPE’s Assisted Living Program has provided a wonderful life, free from suffering to many senior animals. We couldn’t do it without YOU, our CAPE community.

💜🐐Day 5 of CAPE’s Celebrate Senior Animals Week! Stella is a very friendly, elderly goat who will live the rest of her life at the CAPE Animal Sanctuary. She loves visiting with people, often coming when called and playfully rubbing against her visitors and wagging her tail. She even smiles when we present treats .
Stella’s in good health and quite independent, exploring the entire goat pasture each day and taking rests in the shade. She is such a sweet girl and we love Stella so much!
We could not care for these animals without your support. If you would like to support animals like Stella please visit: https://www.capeanimals.org/make-a-donation1.html
