Our Mission

CAPS is operated completely by volunteers and we always welcome new members!!!  We desperately need foster homes. If you would like to become a foster parent, please call our main line at 910-455-9682 and leave a message on the mailbox for cats or dogs.  You can also visit our website at and fill out an on-line foster application.  The number of pets we save depends on the number of loving foster homes we have!


We are ALWAYS looking for a helping hand!  If you'd like to volunteer, please shoot us an email at or call 910-455-9682 and leave a message on the dog line.

Adoption Policy

If you are interested in adopting one of our pets, PLEASE visit our website and read our qualifications for adoption.  If you feel that you will be a good provider for one of our animals, please fill out an adoption application which you will find on our website BEFORE you call.  This will save a lot of time and unnecessary phone calls for both of us.  Thank you for your understanding and your support!!

Meet some of our adoptable cats every day of the week in the Luv-A-Pet Center located in the Jacksonville PetsMart.
