Dear reader, we have made it to a new year. Personally, I don’t take any time I have left on this planet. Today the sky is blue, the air is clean, and I am with the ones who I love. The New Year is a traditional time for making resolutions and thanking people who have made a difference in our lives.

At CAPS we have many folks who have made our mission possible and their support not only keeps CAPS vital but also reaffirms our commitment to a no-kill shelter.

With that in mind, the board of directors, staff, volunteers, and most of all, the dogs and cats in our care would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the following individuals and businesses for their generosity. Please show you appreciation for their support by patronizing their businesses.
