When & Where
Center for Animal Protection & Education (CAPE) and SC County Animal Shelter
Established in 1992 in Santa Cruz California, the Center for Animal Protection and Education (CAPE) is a non profit 501(c) 3 organization. CAPE provides sanctuary for injured, disabled and special needs animals, foster care and adoption for homeless dogs, humane education programs for children and adults, advocacy campaigns addressing current animal issues, and information for people who have questions or problems concerning animals.
CAPE’s animal sanctuary situated in the Sierra Foothills in Grass Valley, California, is a haven for animals with no other options for a safe place to go. Specializing in animals with disabilities, injuries or treatable medical conditions, the sanctuary can provide safety, comfort and rehabilitation to a variety of species.
CAPE's aim is to bring people and animals together in peaceful co-existence.
Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter (SCCAS) provides animal rescue, regulation and humane care that protect the health, public safety and welfare of people and animals in Santa Cruz County. We currently rescue and assure safe, temporary shelter, veterinary and humane care for approximately 6,000 stray, unwanted, abandoned, mistreated, neglected and injured animals each year.
Our shelter also provides 24-hour animal rescue service and is Santa Cruz County’s only full service, open-admission animal shelter. SCCAS provides two locations for owners to find and recover their lost pets and adopt new animal companions.
The Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter is a Joint Powers Authority serving the County of Santa Cruz, City of Santa Cruz, City of Scotts Valley, and the City of Watsonville. SCCAS is governed by a Board of Directors that has representatives from each of the participating jurisdictions.
Our shelters are tangible evidence of Santa Cruz County’s commitment to animal welfare. They are supported by numerous volunteers and foster care families who provide thousands of hours of assistance to shelter staff at both shelter locations. We’re YOUR community shelter.
