Colorado Animal Protectors

The CAP Grant Program

We support state animal welfare organizations and individuals with special projects, helping them fulfill their missions. Success for others reflects our ability to fulfill our own mission—to network, protect and educate, thereby raising the value of animals in all spheres of concern.

When you donate to us, we apply your gifts to vetted groups, events, and projects that need an extra boost to accomplish their goals in educating about and protecting animal interests in our state.
