Citizens for Animal Protection (CAP) celebrates the season with their annual Open House, Adoption Event, and Holiday Market Saturday, December 7. Enjoy a Katy holiday tradition and maybe your family could grow by four legs.

Open House, Adoption Event, Holiday Market

CAP and West Houston Subaru team up this Saturday, December 7 for an Open House, Adoption Event, and Holiday Market at CAP's Animal Shelter and Adoption Center off of Katy Freeway near Barker Cypress (17555 Katy Freeway).

West Houston Subaru is sponsoring the adoption fees for all pets during the Open House.

CAP's goal is to find homes for 75 pets in only one day, and to collect pet supply items to continue caring for those who still need help.

Holiday Raffle

This year's holiday raffle is up and running now through the Open House, Adoption Event, and Holiday Market. Available prizes include a gorgeous Cat Cave (donated by Cat Cave Company), a handmade holiday pet wreath, gushy blankets (donated by Buddy's Blankets) and more. Raffle tickets are $1 each, or twelve tickets for $10.

Celebrate a Great Year

"Take a tour of our shelter, help collect donations, give a little love to our homeless pets and most of all, join us in celebrating a great year of successes," says Bianca Burrascano, CAP Marketing Coordinator.
