Year end reports will be presented and the election of 2024-2025 Board of Directors will take place at this meeting.

At present CAPS is drawing down its work with the homeless and abandoned animals of our Valley.

CAPS continues to care for a small number of foster kitties,  senior cats and those with ongoing chronic health issues leaving them unadoptable. They are happy and well loved and cared for in their foster homes.

  Since 2004 when CAPS came to be, our volunteers and foster families have had the joy and privilege to care for countless homeless and unwanted cats and dogs  in Annapolis County.

CAPS is no longer able to receive animals into our care, but is committed to continue looking after those little ones who are presently in our foster homes for the rest of their lives.

Read on to remember with us past days here at CAPS….


If you could take a diverse group of people, ranging in age from teenage to ‘golden’ age, living in towns and villages throughout the Annapolis Valley and ask what we had in common, would you know the answer? The answer would be our love and compassion for abandoned and stray companion animals in Annapolis County. It is this group of dedicated volunteers that forms the heart and soul of Companion Animal Protection Society of Annapolis County, or CAPS, as it is known.

Companion Animal Protection Society of Annapolis County, Nova Scotia is a diverse group but the one thing we all have in common is our love and appreciation for the animals that touch our lives. CAPS is run entirely through the efforts of volunteers. A registered not-for-profit Society, CAPS is a registered charity which is able to issue income tax receipts for all donations.

CAPS does not have one central shelter site, rather, we have cozy “cage free” foster homes throughout Annapolis and Kings Counties where our foster animals live happily until they are adopted by forever families. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have regarding this website and our operations. We hope you enjoy your time visiting our website and learning about what do to give hope and improve the lives of Annapolis County’s homeless and unwanted companion animals!

Please note: while CAPS answers telephone calls from pet owners all over Nova Scotia, who are looking for advice, support and comfort on many matters, including re-homing of their companion animals. CAPS does not accept surrenders from individuals. All animals in CAPS care have come to us via the Municipal Pound in the Municipality of Annapolis County.

Welcome to CAPS – a visit to Cackleberry and Violet Cottages at the Farm
This little video made with love by one of our volunteers lets you visit kitties as they spend their days in foster care. CAPS kitties are happy, playful and well loved. They enjoy being cuddled and playing with each other and their caregivers in their bright, cozy cottages or snoozing in the fresh air and sunshine on their safe, enclosed catios. We hope you enjoy your visit!
