Companion Animal Protection Society of Annapolis County, NS



To All CAPS Members and Friends

 Our foster parents and hands-on volunteers work 24/7 doing daily chores and caring for our foster animals.


Volunteering is fun! 


Please remember that we are ALWAYS looking for helpers for daily chores, cuddling, grooming, laundry, sewing etc., especially at the largest foster home in Margaretsville.


 We cannot do this work without our volunteers. Once a week, twice a week, once every two weeks... at your convenience.

Why are volunteers at CAPS so important? Just look at these pictures . Our little (and big) foster kitties need one on one time..... laundry needs doing, dogs need walking, cats need brushing, litter boxes need cleaning, files need updating. Ask any of our volunteers's fun!

In a world where the value of volunteerism is becoming increasingly vital, CAPS is offering some exciting volunteer opportunities with our organization.

CAPS not only helps the animals in its care, it also gives people who love animals a chance to make a wonderful difference in their own lives. If you have a heart for animals in need, whether you are 18 or 81, we have many ways for you to get involved.

CAPS  requires foster homes for both cats and dogs. Without a safe, loving place to call home until they are adopted, many little animals will not get a second chance. Please consider this plea for help. It's truly a matter of life or death.

 Can you commit to a morning or afternoon to make a difference in the lives of these animals?

Not possible to foster or commit to a regular weekly volunteer commitment?

Not to worry. There are many other volunteer opportunities for you to consider.....

We try to match our team members with avenues of service that will be most fitting and fulfilling for their personalities, lifestyle, talents and training. Cuddler, groomer, rolling change, animal transportation, pet photography, fundraising, info, ticket table worker, event volunteer, clerical work, folding laundry, pet food/supplies organizer.....these are just a few of the possibilities that demand only a few hours of your time on a relaxed schedule that fits your busy lifestyle.

Email us as, call us at 902-825-2277! Help us find the perfect endings that these homeless animals deserve, while at the same time serving your community in a way that is fulfilling, challenging and so satisfying.



The Opportunity of a lifetime....



Wanted: volunteers who are not afraid of a little hard work.

Requirements:  Must be willing to show the foster animals in our care the kindness and love they deserve as they await their forever home.   Must enjoy hearing the purrs of happy, contented cats and kittens.   Must be willing to play ball, cuddle, or brush cats at every available opportunity. Must have an up to date tetanus shot. (They are good for 10 years.)

Pay: knowing you have made a difference in the lives of stray and abandoned animals.

Benefits:  Hugs, love and trust of happy, contented foster animals who now know they can trust people.

No experience required.  We train all willing volunteers!  

 If you are not afraid of hard work, and like to be around loving and friendly animals,  we have a great opportunity for you!  We are always looking for volunteers to help with the daily chores of caring for the animals at our two largest foster homes. Chores include: feeding, emptying and washing litter pans, sweeping, vacuuming, mopping and yes, even washing windows!  Can't help with chores?  CAPS is also looking for volunteers to help with activities such as fundraising, posters, attendance at CAPS open houses, and "cuddlers".  A cuddler is someone willing to spend time with the cats and kittens in care, cuddle, groom and help these loving animals become more socialized in preparation for their 'furever' home.

We would love to have you come on board. The gift of your time and talents will be greatly appreciated by all of us!
