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 alleviate animal suffering. Founded in 1992, CAPE has saved thousands of animals.
In 2017 CAPE, in collaboration with Compassion Without Borders, founded a dog shelter in Santa Rosa, CA called Muttopia. Muttopia is a safe place to temporarily house rescued dogs.
CAPE also offers educational opportunities to inform people about issues animals face in society. CAPE programs emphasize that all animals have the right to a long, full life, free from suffering.
Thanks to our amazing community, CAPE staff & volunteers delivered donated feed and medical supplies to victims of the 2018 Camp Fire.

“"Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way."
